Ministry Partner Care Packages Mailed Out

Our first shipment of Ministry Partner Care Packages are being mailed out today. About 20% of our annual revenues come from donations. That's a vital 20%. We couldn't do what we do without faithful supporters. Anyone who donates $100 or more in a calendar year becomes a GTD Ministry Partner.

Here is the letter that we included with the care package:

Dear Ministry Partner(s),

Thank you so much for supporting GTD!  We truly appreciate your thoughtfulness & generosity. Your donations help enable GTD to accomplish our Christ-centered mission of using outdoor recreation to reach out to the lost and spur on those already in the faith. God has been using this ministry to impact lives for over 18 years and we couldn't do it without faithful supporters like you!

It’s hard to believe, but we are only 18 months away from turning 20 years old!! We are not only planning for our 20th anniversary, but more importantly, we are already preparing for the next 20 years. Glory to God!

Even though it is a small token of our gratitude, we are excited to give back to those who give so much to us. Enclosed is a bag of authentic Costa Rican coffee and your GTD Ministry Partner T-shirt!! The shirts were generously donated to our ministry by Chuck Stewart of AxCel Mark Corporation. They are a top-notch Christian owned apparel business that we highly recommend. If you have an apparel need then you will be pleased with the great service & professional quality of AxCel Mark.

Great things are happening at GTD! We are getting so much work done in the office. We are also in the midst of preparing for our summer Adventure Trips to TN & NC and our Mission Trips to Costa Rica. Please follow our daily blog on the new GTD website to read about all the God-awesome things going on. And thank you for praying for us and for the lives God will change this summer.

We hope you love the coffee & T-shirt. Thank you again for your faithful support. It means more to us than we can express in words.

God Bless You,
Doug Garner & Laurie Finger
