Dear Guy,January 15, 2004

Thank you for your help to get our church going. We have just been approved by the Federal Government as a 501 (c) 3 tax free nonprofit organization. We wanted to share with you what we’re doing here.

God’s new work, Faith Christian Church, is dedicated to winning the lost, teaching the believers, discipling and raising up leaders, and changing Arizona forever. We have been called to bring life to the un-churched and win souls for Christ. Our hearts are crying out for this land, for this people. Chandler is a rapidly growing city, with a very old downtown. It is settled by a poor Hispanic population and surrounded by a rich prosperous suburb. The population, rich and poor, is struggling against drugs, alcoholism, divorce, and single parenthood. This is a people who need Christ and as hard, it is to believe, there is no one effectively reaching these people.

Our entire family is answering the call of God to plant Faith Christian Church. Our son in-law Derek and daughter Janell have joined us. They are both graduates from Rhema Bible Training Center in Oklahoma where they majored in Music and Youth Ministry. The church and our family are being covered by an Apostolic ministry, Association of Related Churches (ARC). This organization is dedicated to planting, growing, and supporting churches around the world.

We need your prayers, because we know that “the prayers of the righteous availeth much”. Please pray for the people of Chandler that their hearts will be made soft towards the message of our Lord and Savior. Pray for our family that we remain strong and focused on the vision that God has given us. Pray for the successful building of an effective launch team. And lastly, pray for the resources to be made available to launch the church in Arizona.

Along with your prayer, we need your financial support. The work the Lord has set aside for us requires a great amount of finances to launch this new church. We are asking everyone we know to come along side of us in our quest to launch God’s church with a seed gift (donation) to make God’s vision for Chandler, Arizona a reality. Your sacrificial gift will make an impact on the body of Christ. We are believing with you that the seed you sow will multiply itself in your life. “Give and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you” (Luke 6:38).

There is no greater investment into the kingdom of God than a local life-giving church that

will change the lives of thousands of people for decades to come.
AND every dollar that YOU donate willl matched by ARC. UP to $30.000 there by doubling your gif. Our faith has been multiplied by this vote of confidence and support on the part of ARC. your tac deductible donation is critical to making this vision a reality.

You know me, you know my family, you know our servanthood, and you know our heart. Please join us in launching Faith Christian Church in Chandler, Arizona by committing to continual prayer on our behalf and by sending a donation. The Lord’s vision is great and to fulfill that vision we need you.

Your fellow servants in Christ, Eric and Tammy Walton
