It's A New Day For The Damrons!

Dear Friends, Family and Support Team,

Anyone who knows us well understands that the landscape for our ministry has changed from time to time. Once again we are facing a new direction for our ministry.

Due to our forced departure from Sudan, Thirst No More has been compelled to return to a skeletal staff which does not include me. Honestly, for the past three months the Lord has been dealing specifically with me in regard to my call to preach the Gospel. The strong exhortation from 2 Timothy 4:5 to “do the work of the evangelist, fulfill your ministry”, plus the departure of TNM have given me clear confirmation to return to my calling and first love of evangelism. Please let me assure you that Craig Miller and Thirst No More remain close to my heart. As a matter of fact, Sarah will continue as Business Administrator for TNM.

Sarah and I have concluded that among many other blessings, TNM has enabled us to make the transition from a typical church structure back to a travelling itinerate ministry. We are reminded of the time in May 1980 when we began this “on the road” ministry and how this is in our blood.

So, what does all this mean? It will mean a new non-profit organization for us to be established as soon as possible. It will mean the need for opportunities to preach. It will be our intention to potentially return to Montana for a good part of each year. It will mean the necessity for continued prayer support for literally every facet of our ministry (no change here!) And of course, it will also mean building a financial support team which will enable us to take the Gospel to the fields white unto harvest.

Our prayerful request to you at this time is that you remain on our financial support team as partners with us in taking the Gospel to our nation, in order that our nation might continue to take the Gospel to the world. Also, if you are able and feel led of the Lord to give a gift toward our transition costs, this would be a great help.

All donations beginning today should be sent to New Hope Fellowship, PO Box 6100, Springdale AR 72766 until we are able to establish our own non-profit organization. Please continue to mark “Damrons” in the memo. Pastor Cliff Jenkins who has been a close friend for many years and is now our home Pastor, has set up a designated account for us. So your donations are still tax deductible.

Since we are pursuing this course without delay, we ask that you respond to us by email if you are able to remain on our support team or if you wish to join it. Please understand that any gift regardless of the amount is a significant contribution to this ministry.

As we look forward to a New Day of ministry, please accept our deepest thanks and appreciation for your prayers and support over the years.

It’s a New Day,

Alan & Sarah Damron
