Urgent Request for Financial Support for One of Our International Worker Couples

Jeff & Betsy Lawrence.png

Jeff and Betsy Lawrence, one of our international worker couples, are currently in the U.S. due to their daughter's health issues but anticipate a return to Papua in mid-July.  When they return, they will be moving to Wamena. Due to this city’s remoteness, the cost of living is going to be higher for them as everything is flown in.  In addition, they are going to have to fully furnish their home there.  They will need to buy everything from dishes and other kitchen items to bedroom and living room furniture, and large appliances, such as stove and refrigerator.

They have a way of ordering and shipping the items from the capacity of Indonesia, but they need the finances to do so.

Would you help these international workers by giving? Below is the information on ways to give and special instructions from Jeff and Betsy.

Mail your check to the address below:
8595 Explorer Drive
Colorado Springs, CO 80920

Please add mm Lawrence outfit funds on the memo. This is important so the monies get properly to them and not the general fund.

Let them know you are sending them money!  Please send an email to Jeff and Betsy at jeffandbetsy82@gmail.com and let them know how much you are sending so they can plan accordingly (they don't usually know what is in their support account for at least 30 days or more).

Jeff and Betsy estimate that they will need between $3,000-$4,000.

Please make sure to send any money by July 1st.

Thank you for your support!

New Alliance Purchasing Program Partner

From Ken Baldes, Vice President for Operations/Finance

The NuQuo Group has recently joined the Alliance Purchasing Program. NuQuo has insider knowledge of the copier and printer industry that allows them to secure better terms, conditions, and pricing on copiers and printers from major manufacturers than clients could get on their own. The company recently assisted the National Office in selecting and negotiating the terms, conditions, and pricing of our new copiers—which is anticipated to save us 21 percent over the next five years.

I am confident that a call to NuQuo will result in significant savings for your district and churches too. To learn more, visit NuQuo's website.

NuQuo Group

  • Has a heart to serve the Alliance family

  • Will provide districts, churches of any size, and supporting organizations (including camps) access to negotiated national pricing on copiers and printers from major manufacturers (and greater savings when churches purchase together)

  • Offers clients contract support as well as ongoing support throughout the term of the contract

  • Will donate a portion of their sales to the Great Commission Fund.

To learn how much you can save, contact Bo Higby at NuQuo Group at (208) 830-5617 or email bhigby@nuquo.com. Along with other Alliance Purchasing Program partners, Bo will be an exhibiter at Alliance Council 2019 and present a Friday morning seminar, Church Re-sources to Help Grow Your Budget. I urge each district to send a team member to this seminar, where participants will also hear from Tithe.ly, Stewardship Payroll Services, AMD/8x8, Digital Audio Labs, T-Mobile, and ECFA. This is a great opportunity to learn how these partners can help your district, camp, or churches.

For a complete list of partners, visit Alliance Purchasing Program (log-in to MyCMA required to view page).

For questions about NuQuo or the seminar, please contact Ken Baldes at (719) 265-2128 or baldesk@cmalliance.org.
