About Our Sponsors
You can be a sponsor by joining us in this great work of evangelism. Thunder the Baptist is reaching the world for Christ. On thunder's blog, we have reached over 500,000 people with a message of hope. We are going into our 11th year and we do not ask for money. God has blessed us in a mighty way to be effective with what we have. Sponsorship and partners in ministry are the way we will pay for this work to continue. For the first ten years, I have put my all into growing this work. Others have asked, how they can help. By this concept, we will stay self-supporting. Partners can put their information (business card) on the "partners in ministry page" without a donation, however, a gift is accepted and sponsors can sponsor a page on the website with their information, this donation is published at the sponsor's request. To get more information call 214 417 4425 or e-mail us at [email protected] It is the committed workers who will get the job done. We have the commission to keep and a mission to complete. There will be more information to come soon.
