Dear Ministry Partner and Friend,
First, may the Lord bless you and I hope this e-mail finds you well. I am posting this as we have a very serious emergency situation on our hands.
As many of you know, we have a ministry P.O. Box and have had the same one for over 20 years. We have regular Monthly Support Partners and donations usually come in daily. Also, we are not a large ministry, and we rely on every dollar to continue the work the Lord has called us to do.
We have not received ANY mail in the last three weeks which has never happened in 20 years.
We have contacted every individual possible within the Postal system to find out what is going on, and where our mail is. They say it could be one of two scenarios: either the mail has been delayed or caught up somewhere due to the severe storms over the last few weeks in the country, or, someone somewhere is tampering with the mail – which of course is a federal offense. No checks have been cashed, but no regular monthly gifts have been received either. We have several postal officials looking into this for us, but the financial situation is extremely dire as of this point.
We are humbly asking if you are able to help with an emergency gift at this time, it would be so greatly appreciated. We are behind almost $4,000.
The best way to give is by using your credit card either by telephone – Nationwide Toll-Free at 1-800-832-3623, or, by our safe and secure Donation Portal online at www.SBMWorldwide.com/donate. Irene and I are in the office and we would love to say hello to you! Your prayers are obviously greatly needed and appreciated at this time as well.
Thank you again and may the Lord bless you all abundantly for your prayers and help at this time. We will keep you in the loop as soon as we are updated and when the situation is resolved.
Your brother in Christ,
Stephen J. Bennett

All gifts are greatly appreciated and are tax-deductible
05/20/21 UPDATE: Mail is back to normal praise God! The mail for the questioned three weeks is gone. The Post Office has no explanation except whatever was the issue has been resolved. I guess we will never know. If you are a Ministry Partner and graciously mailed a gift and your check did not clear, would you kindly call the Ministry at 1-800-832-3623? Thank you EVERYONE for your prayers and support during this difficult time. SBM Worldwide & The Parents Group.
