Recently, a letter was sent to you asking for your financial
help in clearing the indebtedness against the Bible School.
I would like to use this column to express my thanks to you
for your willingness to prayerfully consider this need, and
also to share some background information about our purpose
in asking for your help at this time.
When Pinecrest began in the fall of 1968 in direct response
to the leading of the Lord. The buildings were old and in
desperate need of repair. They were completely unfurnished,
we started with absolutely nothing, and gradually the Lord
has provided the things that were needed to function.
Pinecrest is a ministry, seeking above all, His presence
and anointing in imparting spiritual life and ministry into
the lives of those whom the Lord sends. Therefore, the charges
have been kept low, so all who desired to attend could do
so. Also, over the years, we have taken in young people who
had a sincere desire to be trained, but did not have the finances
to pay their way.
The combination of these factors has limited our ability
to pay for the needed improvements and the high cost of operating.
Each school year, the income for the present year was needed
to pay the remaining bills from the year before.
We have continued to struggle under the load of all this.
Many lives have been changed and prepared for the Lord's purposes,
but the lack of adequate finance has hindered the full outworking
of the vision and purpose for which Pinecrest was brought
Recently, the Lord spoke very clearly to me, that we were
to present this need to those who have been blessed through
the ministry of the Bible School and the Banner, and ask for
their help in clearing the debts that are against the school.
Many have already given, and it appears that the debts could
be paid off in full.
This will require your help and cooperation in making this
possible. If you have any questions about this, please write
to me and I will personally answer your letter.
I prayerfully ask that you send as large a gift as possible
at this time, towards this urgent need. Thank you for your
very kind consideration and help. May our Lord richly bless
you for this.
In His eternal Love,
Wade E Taylor
