Reminder—We are trying to fund our Gym upgrade rather quickly. We have received about 10% of the needed funds. We will need to have the money in hand by August if we are going to finish this summer. I know that is a lot to ask in a very short time. We will keep you posted as things develop.
We are in this world for such a short time. I wish I knew exactly how long, then I could plan the use of my resources better. Marge and I have both saved for retirement, and with Social Security (??) we should have decent last years. But I am still trying to figure out how I can help my kids and grand kids the best way and leave a large chunk for the church. I had a really good plan (I thought) until just a few months ago. My general goals are the same, but the details are harder. I want to challenge you with your goals. You can’t take it with you. Have you planned to benefit God’s work in your will? I remind you that we were able to put a roof on this building, pave the parking lot and save $100,000 for the next major roof repair (3 to 5 years away?) because someone left us a chunk of money. If you are young you need a will to make sure your kids are properly cared for if something happens to you. If you are older, the goals change, but the method includes a will. Have you prepared yours?
