Why we are leaving a legacy to TEN in our Will
Life during 2020 has presented most of us with challenges we never expected to face. The coronavirus pandemic has robbed many of us of our normal routines, impacted our health and mental wellbeing, and sadly cost many people their lives.
Covid has also prompted many of us to take stock and evaluate our priorities. In recent days two of our long-term supporters have each contacted TEN and told us that they have decided to leave a legacy in their Will. Jenny and Barbara both want to ensure that God’s work will continue among some of the poorest people in Eastern Europe.
Jenny explained her reasons. “Several years ago, I had the privilege of visiting Kosovo on two occasions and witnessed the amazing work of TEN’s partners. I saw first-hand the terrible poverty of children covered in mud and dirt. I met widows struggling to survive and my visit to the Roma camps was a real eye-opener. I tried to imagine what it must be like for them during the winter months. These visits made me want to do something about it and I have been an active supporter of TEN ever since.”
Barbara tells her story. “It has been wonderful to be associated with Transform Europe Network for many years and I feel that God is leading me to leave the society a legacy in my Will. I am impressed by the way TEN functions and, clearly, God is richly blessing its work. The policy of using indigenous partners means the society supports Christians with hands-on, local knowledge and also that money is well used. TEN keeps supporters well informed so that we can feel involved and our prayers are targetted. I want God to continue to bless this work both now and in the future.”
With the help of faithful supporters like Jenny and Barbara, TEN can invest in the future by supporting the new generation of leaders and church planters and providing long-term help to those in greatest need.
