Pinecrest continues to struggle with its ability to support
itself. A ministry such as this cannot support itself, apart
from help from others.
The Bible School and Conferences require a large physical
plant and staff to support these ministries. The income from
these is not able to cover the cost of operation. However,
the spiritual growth and development in lives is outstanding,
along with the students being prepared for Christian service.
With this in view, the Banner is sent as a ministry to those
who are spiritually hungry and desire to better know our Lord.
In return, we prayerfully trust that those who are ministered
to by the Banner will respond in support of the ministry of
Many who receive the Banner are graciously responding with
financial support on a regular basis, and the load is becoming
lighter, but there is a present urgent need for an increase
in gifts received.
If you are being fed and nourished by the Banner, would you
prayerfully consider becoming a supporter of this ministry?
Lives are being changed and needs met. I truly believe that
the ministry of Pinecrest is an investment in the Kingdom
that is worthy of your consideration.
We do not have a final cost figure for the new septic system,
but if it is within the range we expect, we have received
over one half the amount that will be needed. I am prayerfully
trusting that those who have not responded to the special
letter will yet consider this urgent need.
We are experiencing a marvelous move of the Holy Spirit in
our classes and meetings. There is a very evident working
of the Lord within the lives of those who come to Pinecrest
and I am told by many that their lives have been forever changed.
I am looking forward to many years of faithful service to
the Body of Christ at Pinecrest, and to the Banner being an
increasing blessing to each one who receives it. Your prayers,
interest, and participation in this ministry are coveted.
It is my prayer that this issue of the Banner will be a blessing
and encouragement to you.
May our Lord bless you,
Wade E Taylor
