Our Kealy Quotes ~ insight to ministry
If you do not receive the KEALY QUOTES please drop a note to us on this site and we will gladly include you with future releases. For more than 30 years we have shared our ministry four times a year; now with Constant Contact. The print, cut and paste, print, fold, insert, stamp and mail days are long gone and now this electronic message; our brief message about our year.
Thank you for your encouragement, prayer and financial support throughout 2018. This year our Kealy family will spend Christmas together at Rancho Vistoso in Oro Valley, Arizona.
The LORD continues to bless our ministry locally at LifePoint Church and globally with Reaching People far from God. We continue to support Morning Star in an undisclosed country; fresh water wells and water projects in Ghana, Liberia, Nepal and Indonesia. Consultancy and facility design continue with several global partner ministries.
Sharon leads the local and global missions outreach for LifePoint Church in Banning, California, where we attend. David continues to assist our global ministry friends in ministry including VOX Liberia with the VOX Radio station and development of their ministry compound. The 97.5 FM Christian radio station has completed the first year of test broadcasting and is planning to build the live studio in 2019.
Our continued joy is to share the HOPE of Jesus as our global partners reach their audiences with the good news of His love.
“To God be the Glory for all He has done!”
This year more than ever we are receiving what might be called savvy year-end giving options. If you are considering a year-end contribution you might consider a few tax-wise tips to help you maximize your impact for the Kingdom.
To receive a tax deduction on this year’s tax return, be sure cash gifts are postmarked or delivered in person by December 31. Gifts of stock or other non-cash assets must be received by the organization by December 31.
GIVING APPRECIATED STOCK OR REAL ESTATE:
You may be able to take advantage of significant tax benefits by giving non-cash assets such as appreciated stock, real estate or commodities. To maximize your benefits, make sure to give appreciated assets directly rather than selling them first and gifting the proceeds.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF TAX-FREE DISTRIBUTIONS FROM YOUR IRA:
If you are 70 1/2 or older, you can make a tax-free distributions up to $100,000 per year from your individual retirement accounts to charity. These gifts count toward your annual required minimum distribution and will not be included in your adjusted gross income.
These gifts must be completed by December 31st so please contact your financial advisor for more information.
“Don’t hoard treasure down here where it gets eaten by moths and corroded by rust or—worse!—stolen by burglars. Stockpile treasure in heaven, where it’s safe from moth and rust and burglars. It’s obvious, isn’t it? The place where your treasure is, is the place you will most want to be, and end up being. Matthew 6:19-21 The Message
