EOFY Giving to our Missions Partners

Last year, The Billabong began supporting two partners engaged in overseas mission: TEAR’s work in South Sudan and Camille and Derek Porter who work with UNOH in Thailand (who just had their first child, Emmaus River Porter!)

These partners continue to do amazing work in a particularly difficult time. You can hear or read about what Camille and Derek are up to above, and we’ll be sharing a new update from the field in South Sudan soon at a Sunday Celebration. Please continue to keep our mission partners in prayer.

Earlier this year The Billabong Leadership Team set a goal amount ($15,000) we wish to raise to support these partners. If this amount is not raised through tax deductible donations, we will still fulfil our commitment from congregational funds, but we would love to exceed our goal.

HOW TO GIVE

If you would like to make a tax deductible donation please transfer funds to The Billabong’s main account with the reference “TEAR”, “UNOH” (or “Missions” if you don’t have a preference of who you give towards). This donation must be made by Thursday 25th June if you require a tax receipt for the 2019/20 financial year. Alternatively, if you wish for the June tithe/gift you have already scheduled to go towards one of our mission partners, please advise Marilyn at accounts@thebillabong.org.au by Sunday 28th June.

In the long term, would you consider making a regular (eg. monthly) contribution on top of or as a part of your tithe? If so, you can set up a regular bank transfer with a reference mentioned above (eg. TEAR). It would be fantastic to exceed our goal of $15,000 this year and bless our partners in their work!

Thank you for making a difference in the lives of the vulnerable and oppressed through our partners overseas!
