Dear ND Alumni,
Patt and I send you our love and greetings in the Name of the Lord Jesus. We hope this email finds each of you well in the Lord and continuing to love and serve Him in your spheres of influence.
I am writing you on behalf of your fellow ND Alumnus, John Fraser – also known as "Frase-mon" and "Bass-mon!" As you will remember, he and his wife Jane were active members of the NDs almost since the very beginning, as well as "Damascus Road." They continue to be closely involved with JLPF and Jane serves as our CFO – an invaluable service to Patt and me! From their many years in the NDs, they went on a number of mission trips with us to Haiti, Bahamas and Africa to minister musically and do work projects.

I am writing you this email to ask for your financial support for John to go to Kenya with Patt and me in April over Easter. As many of you know, John continues to support himself as a contractor and builder. But that whole industry has been in depression for several years. Across America, thousands of builders have gone out of business due to the depressed housing market. Many that are still viable are literally "holding on by their finger nails."
When things were slow for John last year, he went to Haiti to build houses for Samaritan's Purse for five weeks. He wanted to stay proactive for the Lord even though business was slow. Now, I need him to go to Kenya with me to finish some building projects there among the Samburu Tribe. I had another key carpenter signed up to go who had to drop out at the last minute – which left me in a bind to complete these building projects. As I prayed about this need, the Lord impressed on my spirit to ask John to go. He responded prayerfully and enthusiastically. He has a current passport and is willing and eager to go. However, because of the economy, he needs financial help to do so.
Therefore, I am shooting this email to all of our ND Alumni to ask for your financial support for John – hopefully quickly and as generously as possible! Whether you can give $500, $100, $50, $25, $10 or $5 – every dollar will help send John to Kenya with us for this special Easter Outreach. So please go online and send whatever you can as quickly as you can.
As you well remember about our ND days, we never spent Easter at home! We were always on some "cutting edge" place singing, witnessing and sharing about the resurrection of the Lord Jesus! I have continued to do the same across the years. This Easter will be no different. Patt and I will be conducting a large "Tribal Women's Conference" in Northern Kenya for the Samburu, Rendille and Turkana tribes – which will be another historic first! Thanks for being a part of it through your prayers and giving.
And many thanks for your prayers and partnership with John for this Easter trip to Kenya!
Because of His Resurrection Love & Power,
JL & Patt
