Joshua Fund raises money in honor of friend, her dream

In my previous post I talked about a friend who recently passed away after a battle with cancer.  The Joshua Fund, an organization on whose board Amy served, is honoring her life and memory by raising $300,000, to be invested in sharing the gospel message with people living in the Middle East:

“She was. . .gently insistent from the beginning that TJF be committed to loving Israel’s neighbors in real and practical ways, because that’s what Jesus commanded us to do. We completely agreed and loved her for her deep convictions. She had, after all, personally taken the good news of God’s love and mercy to several Muslim countries, and trained many other women to do the same.

In Amy’s honor, therefore, The Joshua Fund is raising $300,000 to produce 300,000 copies of the new DAMASCUS film for distribution in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and the Holy Land. The film is a powerful docudrama about Saul of Tarsus, a religious extremist and persecutor of the Church, who came to faith in Christ in the first century A.D. through a vision on the road to Damascus, and then went on to become known as the Apostle Paul, writer of nearly half the New Testament and one of the greatest leaders in Church history.” – Joel Rosenberg, Excerpt from The Joshua Fund blog, April 22, 2009

Amy’s life will continue to impact people for Christ – I can’t think of a better legacy.
