A plea for a Christian Brother

Dear Friends,

I am writing to humbly endorse a great friend and fellow laborer in the Gospel in his calling as a laborer in God's East Asian fields. This man, Mr. Casey Adams, is serving his second summer with us here at Youth For Christ as a summer intern. In 2006 Casey served as a "Warehouse Staff" and this summer he is serving as both Warehouse Staff and Co-Director of our summer day camps. We love Casey!

We are also proud that Casey is a "local boy", hailing from the Roseville community and calling Clement Baptist Church his home church, where he also completed an internship in 2005 under the leadership of Pastor Hal Dickerson.

In recent years Casey has graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with a degree in religion and pursued further studies at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. The latter studies are being "interrupted" by this calling to go unto the "ends of the earth".

Here's the beginning of where I am asking you all to help:Casey must raise all the money he needs for his 12 month mission to East Asia. He is being sent by God through Campus Crusade for Christ. His ministry will be to college students in East Asia.

TOMORROW, SATURDAY, JULY 19 there will be a benefit dinner held for Casey in the fellowship hall of Clement Baptist Church (http://www.clementbaptistchurch.org/directions2a.html).

The benefit will consist of a chicken plate dinner ($6.00 per plate) and live music. The benefit will last from 4:00-7:00 PM.Now, I believe $6.00 is a mighty low price to pay to help send a "called" man to the place God desires to send them. As a matter of fact, I encourage you all to eat a LITTLE and GIVE A LOT!

I have never believed in "coaxing" people to give by asking them to buy things, so I offer this endorsement and make this plea very humbly. I would encourage you to stop by the benefit and leave a generous gift; Casey still needs to raise in excess of $7,500.00 before he leaves in August.Please, as the Spirit moves you, please consider a gift to my co-laborer and friend.

The Scriptures finds the apostle John commending BELIEVERS for their support of one who sought "no help from the pagans" (3 John 1:7), so I appeal, to you in the faith, in a special way.If you cannot come to the benefit a gift can be sent to 66 Roseville Loop Rd., Roxboro, NC 27573. Any checks should be written to Campus Crusade for Christ.

If you have questions about Casey's mission or would like for him to speak to your Sunday School class or entire church, please call him at 336-504-4885 or feel free to email him: casey.adams@uscm.org
