Dear ABR Friends,
It is with a grateful heart that I write to you today to inform you that the $30,000 shortfall that ABR was facing at the close of our fiscal year has been met. Many thanks to all of you who provided donations, large and small, so that ABR could finish the year with all of its obligations met and its ministries fully funded.
Our dig at Khirbet el-Maqatir was a tremendous success, as we expanded the dig to three weeks and had close to 70 volunteers involved in the excavation. During the course of the next several months, we will be sharing with you the many exciting discoveries from this season of digging and will be looking at these finds through the lens of Scripture. We are excited that the Lord has allowed us this very special calling in the world of biblical archaeology and to be a voice that upholds the authority of the word of God.
Your partnership with us has been the key to another successful season of ministry. Your gifts, your prayers, your time and talents, are what God has used to bring to the world a faithful, biblical understanding of the historical events recorded in Scripture. We stand in the gap to proclaim the authority and full reliability of the word of God.
I ask that you continue to pray for the staff of ABR and for all its ministries as we seek to grow and expand our efforts to share the Gospel in a skeptical and cynical culture. Please pray that the Lord would open doors for ministry, and that He would prepare us for all that He has planned for ABR.
For the sake of the Gospel,
