Updated Friday June 18 – The latest update to keep Medjugorje.com online, and how your response is crucial to exposing millions to Our Lady.
Updated Friday June 18, 2010
We received a phone call yesterday from a woman who wanted to not only become a Core Group Member, but, also wanted her kids to be Core Group Members as well. So she gave for herself and her 4 children, equaling 5 people added to the Core Group Member list!
We have even heard from existing Core Group Members who have not only let us know of their support, but asked that we add to their comittment amount to help further. Below is a letter from a Core Group Member in Great Britian:
Dear Friends in Christ
Please take $5 dollars (a month) more from my account as I do not want to see this website shut down. It’s very little what I give, but I hope one day that I will be able to give more.
I am praying that we will be able to keep it going and I hope one day that God will grant me a visit to Medjugore. Your work is so important, God bless you all!
Lots of Love, S.C., Great Britian
To our dear friend above from Great Britian, who already gives $10 a month, your giving is not little in comparison to what God transforms your giving into: conversion of souls.
While our friend above, from Great Britian says that she gives little, 5 more dollars each month added to her $10, is equivilanet to a little over 3 people added to the Core Group Member list! Between her and the previous woman who also gave for her 4 children that’s 8 people closer to reaching the goal of 4000 Core Group Members, all from just 2 people.
June 16 Update
A Friend of Medjugorje has been finishing the latest book, It Ain’t Gonna Happen, which is a compelling look at the current economic order, viewing it through the template of Our Lady’s Messages. Because of this, we have allowed the current fundraiser to keep Medjugorje.com online to go dormant.
As was stated before by A Friend of Medjugorje,
“Medjugorje.com is limited in its ability to stay online without funding.”
Plans currently are that on Wednesday July 7, 2010, Medjugorje.com will go offline if the total budget is not reached.
Again we do not state this as a threat, but as the reality that Medjugorje.com must have your commitment to stay online.
For Those Who Have Given
For all Core Group Members, who are those who have committed to helping Medjugorje.com stay online, we cannot express to you enough our gratitude for your help.

You have understood the need for others to know of Our Lady and Her love, and on Her behalf, we are grateful. You help us to keep Medjugorje.com FREE for all users. For all Core Group Members, you have grasped what Our Lady has said,
December 25, 1982
“…You have quickly grasped the messages…”
and responded to Her call.
