Starting off the efforts for next year’s conference

I am hearing some good ideas while at the Gnomedex conference.

We are going to start the efforts earlier for next year, as we are now all very happy we had such a great trip in 2008.
So I created this ChipIn tool for the site:

Yes, we are targeting $30,000 for next year. This will pay for 800 pastors to attend a 2 day conference, plus help make our festival highly impactful. This is not the total we will raise, but simply the smaller donations we are targeting to come through the site. Up til now, we have just collected in the thousands from a small circle consisting mostly of my own money. Fundraising has seemed to be too big a hurdle, but I have a new optimism about the possibilities of many smaller contributions bearing the bulk of the load.

We’ll build this into the site and get things organized for next year.

    Respected and lovingly brother in Christ, Greets to you in Jesus name . I send my sincere salutations and gratitude to you through the king of king Jesus. I hope and pray that this letter will find you and yours good physical and growing ever stronger spiritually as you study the god s world . Since this is my first opportunity to get acquaintance with the children of our lord.
    I talking liberty introduce myself my name is M. Pandu and 30 years old married with merry yet no children . I was born in Hindu family and Andhra Pradesh, but I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal savior and I came to Agra, north India as a evangelist and full time Gospel preacher. I dedicated my life to serve for Christ through out of my life at un reached areas.
    Five friends and I dedicated our lives to serve for Christ until our deaths because most of people should not know about the “Gospel of Jesus Christ”.
    We are working at Agra and Utter Pradesh state, north India.
    Agra is in the state of Utter Pradesh, this is the largest populated state of India sending highest number of the representatives of the people to the “legislative” house [parliament] of the country. Most of the prime minister are elected from this state; here the famous Taj Mahal attracts millions of tourists every year from all over the World. This state has 13 million population, 630 cities and 8100 villages. It is the birthplace of the most of the gods of India. This state has many sacred rivers and temples, kasi Varanasi is considered as the second heaven people come and stay here in die……….. in many ways this has become a great center of this country and this state has the greatest number of the lowest class people and all are people are worshiping idols, all are pagans and gentles because we are doing service for Christ, please pray for us and god’s work here.
    This is the persecuted area, people are ready to kill us sometimes 2nd jan 2007, we went a village, to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ but beated us and captured all of our things like bible, books and tracks.
    We are happy to hear that you are so kind to encourage to the lord’s work in north India through your kind love with sacrifice.
