2018 Year-End Special Project

2018 Year-End Special Project

Thank you for your generous contributions to the 2018 Year-End Project.

Over $77,000 was donated which will fund the identified needs in Nigeria and Ecuador and also makes a significant contribution to our overall ministry needs at Woodside.

Each year, we identify special needs for a year-end giving project. To learn how you can donate, please see our Give page

The 3 projects for 2018 are:

1. Nigeria – first $10,000

Goal: for more people to hear God’s Word in their own language

This project will support the Scripture Engagement (SE) department at SIL Nigeria (a partner of Wycliffe Bible Translators) with these specific needs:

  • Mega Voice player device

    Purchase 50 MegaVoice players – solar-powered hand-held devices are loaded with the local language Scripture and distributed to men and women who are willing to lead audio Bible studies.

  • Replace 4 Laptops for the team responsible for audio recordings of a language’s Scripture once it has been translated.
  • Send 2 SE Staff members to an Africa-wide SIL training conference in Yaounde, Cameroon in 2019.

2. Ecuador – next $10,000

Goal: A Safe and Secure Entrance for the Camp

This project will support our partner camp, Faro De Esperanzato build a new entrance so buses can safely drop off and pick up children.

Currently, the outside wall has deteriorated, buses have difficultly navigating the uneven ground and are at risk of hitting the walls.

This project will go towards:

  • The purchase of concrete and construction materials. The work will be carried out by local workers.
What the new entrance will look like

woodside ministry – next $75,000

Goal: Fully fund the ministry plan for 2018

Additional donations beyond the first two needs will be used towards the 2018 Budget.

If more than $95,000 is received in the Year-End project, the Elders will have discretion on how best to use those funds.

Please clearly indicate on your offering envelope that you want to direct your donation to the Year-End Special Project .
We will accept donations for these special projects until Monday, December 31, 2018. Official receipts will be issued in early 2019.
