Our church school is currently in 3rd place in the Kohl’s Cares Facebook Contest and we could use your help with a few votes, Fr. Anthony Messeh recently sent out this message about it…
Do you believe in miracles? Well I do and I believe that God may be sending us a chance to witness one right in front of our eyes. You all know the church’s financial need these days – especially with the upcoming construction and financing. God, who has promised never to leave us or abandon us, has put a great opportunity in front of us and we need your help to make it happen.
We have a chance to win $500,000 through a contest being held on Facebook by the store Kohls [www.facebook.com/kohls]. They are giving away $500,000 to the 20 schools [public or private] that receive the most votes in their contest. We need you and everybody you know to go online and vote for Good Shepherd Christian Academy. Each person is allowed to vote for a certain school 5 times and we need all 5 of those votes to go to Good Shepherd Christian Academy. For instructions on how to vote, please see the bottom of this email.
And then, once you have voted 5 times, go tell others to vote for Good Shepherd as well. We need everyone to spread the word to their colleagues, neighbors and friends. Tell your friends in other churches across the U.S. and even back in Egypt. Anyone can vote from anywhere in the world! If it helps, I created this video that you can forward to your friends, explaining why they should vote for us.
I believe that God is sending this contest to us at this time because He knows our need. For those who were around back in 2002-03 when we were building the current Sunday school building, God did a similar miracle at the time. He sent us several hundred Sony Vaio computers as a donation and through the selling of those computers, we made a profit of about $500,000. He just put that money in our lap and I believe He is doing the same thing right now through this contest.
This is your chance to be part of a great work by the Hand of the Lord. Go vote for Good Shepherd Christian Academy 5 times and then spread the word to everyone you know. I have no doubt that if we all put our hands together on this and then put those united hands in the Mighty Hand of our God, we’ll see something big happen…
