Fall 2020 Update
November 11, 2020
Dear Friends, Donors, and Volunteers,
It has been awhile since our last update letter.
For most of the past year, We Trust In Him has been working diligently on joining a organization called ECFA, which stands for Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability. In the 1970’s, there was a lot of concern about questionable fund-raising practices in nonprofit organizations. In 1976, a Senator talked to a group of Christian leaders and challenged them to police their own mission agencies as a “Christian Better Business Bureau” or face the potential of government intervention. Consequently, the ECFA was formed, standards were established and a chartering process was started. We Trust In Him is proud to be a member of this group.
As you are already aware, everything has been in such a turmoil this year with the pandemic affecting our country, not to mention countries all around the world. A lot of things have been put on a standstill and/or cancelled entirely. It is with great sadness that we have had to cancel our annual dinner meeting this year, which usually occurs in October or November. We look forward each year to visiting with you and updating you on the latest developments of the miraculous works of the Heavenly Father in Atacames, Ecuador and Kathahalli, India.
Speaking about Ecuador and India, both countries, as well as other third world countries, have been hit extremely hard by this devastating pandemic and the children, widows and families there are continuing to suffer severe hardships and shortages of food, medicine and supplies – with NO government assistance,
We Trust In Him has been doing everything we can in order to help the children, widows and families in these countries, but we can’t do it alone! We need your help to save these children, widows and families by providing food, medicine and supplies to those trying to survive. Also, the holidays will soon be upon us and your generous support could help bring a smile to their faces during this time.
Our semi-annual goal is $50,000. The Founder has donated $25,000 as a challenge and would like YOU to help us meet this goal. 98.8% of these funds go directly to the children, widows and families in these impoverished countries.
Any donation, no matter the size, would be a godsend for these children, widows and families. You can help us support them by placing a 100% tax deductible donation through Paypal, Go Fund Me, or simply mailing a check made payable to: We Trust In Him

Please help us help them!
“He who gives to the poor lacks nothing…”
On a personal note, I have had a couple of major emergency surgeries over the last few months. Christ Jesus has been with me through this journey with my health problems and I am doing well and recovering nicely. Praise the Lord! I want to sincerely thank all of you for your prayers during this time.
Bless you and may God keep you safe, healthy and prosperous.
