Finishing Strong

Hey Friend,

It pains me greatly that I have not been able to find time to write...writing is one of my passions.  Even though God has been speaking so many things into my soul, I have just been too busy to put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard.

So what have I been up to???  I have been quite busy (full time) with my work heading up Redeemer Christian Foundation, Inc.  Our Mission (if you haven't already heard it a million times):

Redeemer Christian Foundation, Inc. exists to promote the hope and love of Jesus with people around the world with a particular focus on providing a Christian education to those who are impoverished, oppressed, orphaned, or persecuted for their faith.

We are wanting to finish the year strong...
Here's how you can help:

1. Pampered Chef Party: If you need anything from Pampered Chef (makes great shower and wedding gifts), would you consider purchasing from our party which is open until Sept. 20. 
The secretary of our Board of Directors, Amy Duncan, is hosting the party. Proceeds of which will go to funding our Joy of Christmas Program for the children who attend our school in Pakistan.  

The children will participate in retelling the story of Christ's birth, partake in a hearty and nutritious Christmas meal, and receive an article of warm clothing, a small toy, and treats. (This will be the only gift they will receive)

2.  Friend Request Me on Facebook and say "Add Me" to the RCF, Inc. Facebook page.  WHY?
For every person added to the Facebook group an anonymous corporate donor will donate $10 on your behalf to go toward our capital budget to equip our classrooms (Up to $3,000)!!! SO:
1. No donation needed from you
2. Friend Request Beverly Senter Rihtarchik in Cary NC and say ADD ME!!  
3.  As a member of the group we will post updates that may be picked up by your news feed only 2-3 times per month.  You can opt out any time.
4.  The goal is to build awareness for RCF, Inc. and the wonderful things we're doing for these precious children.  By doing so you add $10 to our capital budget.  Simple way to donate $10!!

3.  Consider Donating to RCF, Inc. on "Giving Tuesday" which is Nov. 29th this year.

What is Giving Tuesday you ask??  It's a movement in response to Thanksgiving being followed by "Black Friday" and "Cyber Monday" - both geared to commercializing the Christmas season.

"Giving Tuesday" focuses on the true spirit of Christmas which is giving to those less fortunate than you.  The orphans we serve fall into that category.  

We are a registered 501c3 non-profit ministry and get this:  Because our Board covers ALL administrative and PR/Marketing costs, 100% of your donation goes to the children.  In the charitable non-profit sector, this is virtually unheard of.  We are a small but mighty ministry which stands behind our promises.

If you prefer to donate by check:

Make checks payable to:   Redeemer Christian Foundation, Inc.

Mail to:  RCF, Inc.
              103 Silver Lining Lane
              Cary, NC  27513

**  A receipt for tax purposes will be mailed at year end.

4. Visit our Website and take a look around.  Read the news, see the transformation in the children from despair to us finish the year strong...thank you!

Be blessed....and pray that I will find some time for my love of writing... I miss visiting friends' blogs as well...xoxo


  1. Dear Bev ... to every gift there is a season! And it looks like you're following God's lead and call in serving Him in this very significant way. Thanks for keeping us posted as to what He's doing.

    You are, indeed, a faithful servant.

    1. Thanks Linda for cheering me on!!! I do have to say I miss my writing friends like you!! I definitely feel God's calling upon my life right now and am trying to follow HIS lead the best that I can.
      Blessings sweet friend,

  2. Bev, cheering for you from the sidelines here. I'm continually encouraged by your determination and servant's heart.

    1. Thanks Michele,
      I need a few cheers as we come down the home stretch at the end of the year!! This old gal is plum tuckered out lol!! Thank you, as always, for your support!

  3. God bless you, Bev, for the glorious work you are doing for those precious children in Pakistan. As a former teacher myself, I have a special place in my heart for students and educators alike. I will definitely "Friend" RCF on FB. And should our giving obligations change, I would very much enjoy helping your school further. Meanwhile, you are in my prayers -- I'll add the request that you find time to write!

    1. Nancy,
      Thanks so much...every little bit counts!! I know people have other causes and obligations...if things change, I'd love to have you on our team and part of the RCF family!! Thanks for all your encouragement and prayers...

  4. Love your heart and the practical ways you are implementing to finish strong. Please add me to the Facebook group. It's just easier to say it here so I don't forget. I am praying that those children who need to be sponsored are and that Redeemer Christian becomes a safe haven for many children.

    1. Thanks Mary for you loving support...praying for you my sweet friend!!
      Love and peace,
      Bev xoxo

  5. Bev, it has been a blessing to connect with you and to continue to read of the efforts of RCF to reach children. I hope you will remind us in Nov. of Giving Tues. Blessings!

  6. Bev, what an awesome ministry. I will be praying for you and all that God has in store for RCF!


I would really LOVE to hear from you!! Your thoughts, opinions, suggestions and prayer requests mean a lot to me.
