1 Corinthians 15:55-57 - ““Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Freedom '14 Update













 I was asked this week if I could keep everyone updated each month in the News Letter about the status of Freedom ’14.  We have a thermometer inside the newsletter that gives the changes in total dollars, but I would like to share some of the individual blessings we receive each month from people who are helping to remove the debt.

One lady sends her check in each month with a note on the bottom that reads, “Debt Extermination”.  Now this lady understands the bondage that comes with long term debt.  We also receive a blessing each month from the Brotherhood meetings in the 3 separate zones.  The north, central and south zones have made a commitment to take up an offering each month that goes exclusively to Freedom ’14.  Each month we receive between 800.00 and 1,000.00 dollars from this offering.  It is great to see our men step up and lead the association in becoming debt free.

We have also received larger amounts of money given for Freedom ’14, such as a $7,000 check, a $2,000.00 check, quite a few $1,000 dollar checks and some $500.00 checks.  Some people are paying their entire 12 month agreement with one check.  The 12 month total for an $18.00 per month agreement is $216.00, the $36.00 per month agreement is $432.00, the $54.00 per month agreement is $648.00, and the $72.00 per month agreement is $864.00.  Of course if the payments are made in one lump sum it does help to clear off interest quicker.

Whether it is giving once a month for 12 months individually, or whether you are giving the money to your church to be sent in for Freedom ’14.  We do appreciate everyone’s response to helping us remove this debt.

It is much easier to get excited about giving when you are giving to a building program or to some new vision that is set before us.  Giving to retire a debt doesn’t create much enthusiasm.  However, being set free from debt so we can use all of our dollars to further God’s kingdom should excite us.  We are called to be good stewards of what God has given us and doing God’s will is very exciting.

I hope you have already joined us at some level in Freedom ’14.  If not won’t you pray and ask God at what level He would have you participate and then begin sending your checks to LeFlore Baptist Association, 106 Flanagan, Suite A, Poteau, Ok 74953.  Be sure and tag the memo section of your check with the phrase “Freedom ’14”.  

Thank you and God Bless,

Neil O’Donnell
