Mission St. Francis...

Friends

I am trying to break the ice here with a difficult type of fund raiser
for a Christian Mission down in Florida. The Mission of St. Francis is
a great cause that helps addicts, homeless, destitute men find Christ
and get back to their families and lives. It has been serving for well
over 35 years and now is in need of financial assistance.

A close friend of The Mission and a man of God donated his luxury home
to the mission to raffle off.

The raffle is a $30 chance to own a multi million dollar home in
Florida with all the proceeds going to the Mission's work. http://missionraffle.com

The problem being encountered is that some pastors and church heads
feel it is gambling. The way we see it is that a $30 donation is being
sent to a charitable cause, and it is a good deed. The chance of
winning is secondary.

The money it raises is for a good cause.

I need help spreading the word and some advice on the idea.

Mission Director Jack LaBarga is a good, honest man who devotes every
waking hour to the mission. I can't see how this is bad.

Can each of you send this to more of your friends and contacts? This
raffle ends on November 30th and they are nowhere near their mark.

Thank you and God Bless

of course the site features a graven image of a figure who's supposed to be Jesus Christ...

idol worshipers are not redeemed, 1 Cor. 6:9,10.
