Jeannie and I are so delighted, honored, and privileged to announce the launch of the missions side of Faith Builders International. Faith Builders International is called to Build Faith, Restore Hope, and Extend Love everywhere we go. As we minister in churches and conferences, author books, podcast, and participate in various ministry meetings throughout this next year, we believe this will help build faith and restore hope in the lives of many. When it comes to extending love as a part of our vision we do so in a few different ways, and I want to introduce to you one of those ways today.
As many of you know, our son Gavin died on April 1st of this year due to an inoperable malignant brain tumor. Over the last two weeks I have been working with Gavin’s doctor and her team to coordinate a special day this February 2016, where Faith Builders International can serve families in the the medical clinic at Arnold Palmer Children’s Hospital by giving gifts to each child and family. These precious children are facing all types of pediatric cancer. Some are in outpatient chemotherapy and some are being seen as follow up to other rigorous methods of treating pediatric cancer. Jeannie, Gavin, Preston, Macey, and I have stood where these precious families and children are standing right now. It is a fearful time, emotionally and physically painful, at times you find yourself hopeless and unsure of what the final outcome will be. We all believe for a complete turnaround and trust in God for the miraculous. Some of these precious families may know Christ, some may not, and that is OK. This is why we are here, to help fill in the gap between God and His precious people by extending love in a tangible way.
Because God GAVE His son Jesus as the ultimate sacrifice, all humanity can experience the genuine love the He has for His people. It was this ultimate gift that allows humanity to have the opportunity to be restored back to God through a personal relationship. Ephesians 2:8 says “it is by grace we have been saved through faith…”. How? By God giving His only son Jesus to die a horrible death and then be raised on the third day to restore humanity back Him.
We as a ministry will NEVER put you in a uncomfortable position when it comes to giving to God through Faith Builders International, giving is never manipulative. For the purity and the sanctity of this ministry we will NEVER make you feel guilty or manipulate into giving. 100% of funds raised for “Join In / Team Gavin Missions” goes into those projects. We will always present the opportunity and then trust God after that.
We have set a goal to raise $11,000 between now and the end of this year for the Team Gavin Missions Project. As you look at your end of the year giving, would you prayerfully consider giving to this cause and Join In with Jeannie and I? Would you prayerfully consider sharing this with your friends? We are desiring to raise these funds as fast as possible so we can plan and coordinate with our team for this great blessing in February 2016.

You may also give by check to Faith Builders International by mailing it to our office at: 1913 Kodsi Court Winter Garden, Florida 34787.
