There’s a barn raising and I need YOU!



Friends, family, and blog readers…

Time for a barn raising! Taken from trusty Wikipedia,

In earlier American rural life, communities raised barns because many hands were required. Barn raisings occurred in a social framework with a good deal of interdependence. Members of rural communities often shared family bonds going back generations. They traded with each other, buying and selling land, labor, seed, cattle, and the like. They worshiped together. They celebrated together, because cities were too far away to visit with any frequency on horseback. Despite traditions of independence, self-sufficiency, and refusal to incur debt to one another, community barn raisings were a part one’s life.”



Ok, so I am not literally raising a barn…I don’t think that would go over well in Arlington County. But I am going on a mission trip THIS July for two weeks to spread the Gospel in England… and I need many hands to help do this work!

How can you help?

1.) Prayer support.

Pray for me to seek the Lord in my preparation.

Pray for the team to be a light to all that we encounter.

Pray the softening of the hearts of those that do not yet know Christ.

2.) Financial support.

You can make your tax-deductible donation at www.frontlinedc.com/global. Click on “Global Impact Support” and follow the instructions. You may be asked to log in with a username and password but you will not be added to any mailing lists or promotional materials. Select the England team and type my name (Kim Cotterman) when it asks for team member. If you choose to make an anonymous donation to the team just type ‘General-anonymous’. If the team is successful in reaching our financial goal, all excess funds will be applied to either the needs directly related to the ministry of this trip or to fund additional mission needs within the Global Impact ministry. You can learn more at www.frontlinedc.com.



Thank you advance. Both prayer and financial support are critical to this “barn raising”. Spiritual warfare on our team can only be combated with prayer support. Paying for the work we will do in England is possible with your financial support.

Romans 10: 14-15

How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
