If each Alumni would donate $10-$15, we would exceed our goal! We aren't asking for
a lot . . . don't we all waste $10 in a month? Okay, so donating $10 would be giving up a few trips to Star Bucks, or a dinner out or giving up a movie. . .

Now is your chance to help the ministry that had a direct impact on your life when you were in high school!

The last four years of running a non-profit ministry has been tough to say the least! The poor economy has really affected our charitable donations. We have been down almost $25,000 each year with donations. We have made adjustments in lots of areas in order to cut back: taking rentals vans instead of charter buses, cutting salaries, cutting our printing costs in half and just overall trimming of the budget. God has blessed our endeavors - no doubt!

We have completely changed our focus on the performances and are NOT viewing the performances from a financial standpoint. I mean, how do you put a price tag on the students who come back to the Listening Room to change their lives? So, our plan is to raise the operating money for the ministry needed through grants and foundations. Which should also help in or efforts NOT to keep asking for financial support through family, alumni & friends! I'm sure this will make you happy too!

Where we have seen God’s handprint through this financial struggle the last several years, is through people . . . even some of you! People who believe in the ministry of Mish & “Dead Serious...About Life” . . . people who have helped out financially to keep the show going and through continual prayers! These people, even some of you, have had a huge impact on the lives of the students of Mish and the thousands that we touch through “Dead Serious...About Life”.

We were blessed in October with the purchase of the Mish property in Mason. Three and a half acres with a house and a rehearsal facility. It was a huge step of faith to come up with the $18,000 needed down, but I believe that God has it all figured out. We had to come up with approximately $10,000 more than we originally thought. It has been a financial stress on the ministry with making the property deal happen!

So, each of you have been involved with the ministry, or have been impacted by the ministry of Mishpachah & “Dead Serious...About Life”. We are looking for “year-end” donations as we close out 2012. We have bills that need to be paid and to be completely transparent with you, God is going to have to provide through people in order for us to end 2012 in “decent shape”. We are attempting to raise $8,000 by the end of December.
And as of December 20, we are about half-way toward our goal!

I understand that ministry is tough, but sometimes I ask God, why it has to be so hard financially. I have lots of conversations with God that start with “If only . . . “ I think He just shakes His head and laughs at my small mindedness!

We hope and pray that you will consider helping Mish finish 2012 in a better place. Your gift would be deductible from your taxable income. If you have questions, call the Mish office at 513/459-7268.

Obviously, this is something we need to resolve quickly. If you can’t financially help at this time, please be praying for God provide for the ministry!

We hope that you will be able to lend your support to help the ministry be in a “healthier” place.
