An Appeal for a Friend

Rick never asks anyone to do what he himself is not willing to do. He taught me this as I served with him in my first vocational staff position. Over the years he has assisted countless people because he positioned himself financially to be prepared to help. Once again Rick is inviting others to do what he himself has done. I re-post his recent appeal as an illustration. Should you take believe it something you would do, know this, Rick would never ask anyone to do what he has not done.

Missionary Couple Needs Financial Help
by rick davis

I just don’t know any other way to say it. A missionary couple in Montana needs some financial help.

Alan and Sarah Damron are in Haugan, Montana,where they live and from where they work to start and restart evangelical churches. The NAMB recognizes their work but they must raise their support.

Understand I have known Alan and Sarah since college days. AlanĀ  and I drove back and forth to seminary in my 1973 Ford Pinto with the optional exploding rear end (the Pinto, not Alan. Although….)

Alan recently had hip replacement surgery. For those who remember Alan, yes, you are right, it was a pretty good size hip. He had complications. Now, they are down about $14,000 more out of pocket.

Hurrah for health care reform.

I send money every few weeks to them, above the tithe and all, to support their ministry. I am going to write another check tomorrow and send it along to them.

Frankly, I am worried about Alan’s health and their financial condition.

I would ask all the Howard Payne people who read this, and all others, to send a check for any amount to:
