Friends and family,
As most of you know, our family will move to Guatemala in early February to begin serving in mission with Project Salud Y Paz. We know that many of you may also give to worthy causes for tax purposes as the year ends or to set up on-going donations as the new year begins. We would humbly like to ask you to consider donating to support our mission work. You can find out much more on our website spiritualjourneystoday.org. Information there includes a “How do I donate page?”. I have copied the text from that page into this message below and the link to it is there as well:
Thanks so much for considering a donation to our mission!
We have two donation options available to you to help make this process easier.
Secure Online Donation through the United Methodist Church’s General Board of Global Ministries (GBGM). You will need to pick our names from the dropdown on the page the link takes you to. Our decision to become Individual Volunteers in Mission through the global United Methodist Church ensures that we, personally, will receive 100% of your donation. All administrative costs are borne by the global church via other giving mechanisms. Your gifts may be designated as one-time or as monthly gifts. The thermometer at the right will not update automatically. I will update it as soon as GBGM lets us know what has been given.
Give by Check – Checks can be made out to: Advance GCFA.
In order ensure that we, personally, receive 100% of your donation, the memo line must read “#982465 for John and Janice Lage”.
Having our names on the memo line is critical because all donations to Individual Volunteers go through the same advance number. Check can be mailed to this address:
PO Box 9068 GPO
New York, NY 10087-9068
May you feel and recognize God moving in your life today and always!
Jan and John
We pledge to use your donations responsibly to support our family as we do what we believe is God’s work among the Mayan population in Guatemala. We believe God has called us there and that we will touch lives through our service there.
If you would like to follow our journey, please send me an email asking me to add you to the list of those being notified when changes are made to our website.
We thank you for considering a donation and would be happy to correspond with you to answer any questions.
Jan, John Edmund, and John Lage, Jr.
