Very near the equator where the sun rises at 6 a.m. and sets at 6 p.m. 356 days a year, there are villages where people live in thatch and mud homes barely large enough to shelter a sleeping family. They cook by fire and farm by oxen. They gather sticks and carry 50-lb stacks on their backs to sell at market in order to survive. In this place, something wonderful has happened.
Ethiopians are telling other Ethiopians about a newfound joy, the joy of knowing Jesus in a personal way. Their lives are being changed from male-domineering-sometimes-abusive into compassion. One of these villages has been praying for a neighboring village for 10 years, and now those same villagers are finding faith in Christ.
In one village there are now 88 Believers who gather to worship. They sit on plastic jugs or on the ground under a tree. They have no protection from scorching heat or rain. They need a church. Moreover, in their culture, what makes a religion valid is a church. They are accustomed to prayers in a mosque. Socially, without a church, you are nobody. Friends have told them, “If you get a church, that is when I will come and pray with you and join your faith.”
To build a church, they need land. A prominent Ethiopian, an Influencer, has come to salvation—and he brought his family of 24 into the faith with him. This man has donated land for the purpose of a church. The problem is, there are no funds to build a church nor means to earn funds. How much does a church cost?
$7,000! That’s right, only $7K will build a church that will change the course of a village. Less than what most of us pay for our cars.
I am donating 100% of my royalty income for November and December from my two bestselling books to fund a church for these dear people. However, my current monthly is not enough. And this is where I need your help. I am asking you to hit Share on Facebook to pass on this information so that people who need the information will order a book.

All November and December profits brought in by these books will go to build a church in Ethiopia. It is high time that prayers sent to heaven for 10 long years get answered!
If you know someone who could use it, why not purchase a book as a gift for them, knowing you will be helping families living far, far below the poverty line?
Thank you for considering being a co-partner with me in this worthy endeavor.
One thought on “Announcement: I’m Giving Away All My Book Royalties”
Thank you dear girl – I wish we could. We’ve hit a financial snag – in that our renter has need of repairs (including a roof Lanny just did) – because her son was shot 5x (he said the cops did it – but we know if cops shot 5x he wouldn’t be here.) Anyway – a gov person came in to inspect and we’re stuck with everything from the new roof to replacing light switch covers (some of which were on the floor under the space.) The largest majority of the things are due to her neglect and her kids. UGH! Scott’s spending $$$ like mad and rarely home in the evenings and weekends – trying to get this done with so we can put the house on the market….
Do keep us in the loop – I’m for this project – and praying that it’s 150% successful.
Love you, appreciate your prayers Julie The Baxters +>i< A joyful heart is good medicine.
