Help Trinidadian Pastors and Lay Christians
I received the following e-mail from my friend Matthew Perry. Please think about helping him in this admirable cause.



Dear friends:

My name is Matt Perry. By day (and night) I serve as Pastor of Boone's Creek Baptist Church in Lexington, KY, but also own a blog at Matt Perry Dot Com (Matt-perry.Com). I have a passion for missions work in the twin island nation of Trinidad and Tobago, specifically to help the pastors there with little theological and ministerial education to obtain just that. They are hungry and thirsty for books and curriculum to help in that training.

I will be going to Trinidad in January of next year. I would like to take them some books. I have set up an Amazon.Com wishlist (you can read more about it by clicking
here) and am sending out a request to all of you to see if you would either like to contribute or if you could possibly put a blurb on your blog/website/newsletter to see if others would. I receive no proceeds from this at all. The books will be shipped to our church, which will then be transported to Trinidad in January with us.

I understand you receive requests like this frequently --- and the worst you could say is, "No." But hey, it's worth a shot for a worthy endeavor to advance His Kingdom, I believe. If you have further questions, please feel free to e-mail me.

Blessings,

Matt Perry
