Support the gospelFIA is Serious Reading for the Serious Christian
As an online reader, you can download our monthly messages free, but there are many who still need or prefer to have FIA mailed to them each month. And there are some who do not have access to the internet, such as the elderly, prison inmates, and thousands of readers outside of the USA, especially in third-world countries.
For instance, FIA is sent monthly to India, many African nations, Caribbean nations, and other nations where it is often regarded as a Bible study course. Many native pastors and teachers actually use the messages for their sermons and Sunday School lessons. For them FIA is an indispensable resource that is vital to the success of their ministries. But the postage for foreign mailings is very high and continues to go up.
There are some who like receiving their copies in thr mail because FIA is the perfect size to fit in their Bibles and handbags. Others tell us that they enjoy reading the messages in portions, like savoring a box of chocolates.
FIA is in its 49th year, and we have never charged for it. We rely on the gifts of our readers and supporters for the costly printing expenses and postage, both of which have escalated in the past few years.
Should you decide to donate towards the publishing & mailing of FIA, please know that you will be sowing good seed into rich soil that has consistently produced bountiful harvests year after year in the fields of evangelism and growing up the saints of the Body of Christ around the world.
"The Lord gave the word; great was the company of those that published it" (Psalm 68:11).
Internet Radio Reaches the Hard-to-Reach With the Gospel of Christ
The Ministry airs programs on several key radio staions around the nation (See BROADCASTS on the menu), but one of our best programming tools is internet radio. We are receiving a lot of positive feedback from outside of the USA, including Muslim countries. For example this email from Algiers, Algeria:
As you probably know, Rev. Hardy, in my country there is not much Christian programs. It is a very big blessing that we are getting to hear you. You teach what we need to hear. You are an oasis in the desert. Blessings on you.
And this one from Pakistan: Your program is full of knowledge concerning development of religious faith.Living in Pakistan as Christiqan is to face many obstacles to get the access to the Word of God. Most of the people in Pakistan need to know and hear lessons from the Bible. There is nothing more precious than to read and listen to the Word of God.
Should you feel moved by the Lord to donate towards the cost of the air time on OnePlace.com streaming radio, you will be obeying our Lord's command, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations.... Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you" (Matthew 28:19-20). We hope that you will also tune in to the program at OnePlace.com, all day, every day.
Isiolo Children's Orphanage, Bible School & Training Center, Kenya, East Africa
The Ministry has funded the building of an orphanage and Bible Training Center in Kenya, and continues to support the work of feeding the hungry, clothing the poor, providing medical care for the needy, as well as providing native ministers with Bible schooling to evangelize in the villages and mountainous areas where large crusades do no reach. For more information on the work there see MISSIONS on the menu.
These are just a few of the worthy outreaches R.G. HARDY MINISTRIES supports that we encourage you to prayerfully consider donating to, whether it be a one-time offering, or as the Lord leads you, or on a regular monthly basis as a partner.
Please know that we will not sell or share your name with any organization, ministry, or persons. We will add your name to FIA mailing list to receive the magazine each month (unless you request otherwise). Occasionally we send letters to our supporters apprising them of financial needs that may occur, but these are non high-pressure, and infrequent, and we will never call asking for funds. We believe you should be able to pray about your giving to seek God's direction.
"Every man as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver" (2 Cor. 9:7).
