evangelism and community development among the Lua people of Northern Thailand and Laos. this fund will support 3 fulltime evangelists and community developers, provide travel and ministry expenses, provide educational assistance to Lua youth attending Lanna Theological Center.  Our goal is $9,000 for 2020.

One way some of you can honor David Lee Filbeck's 60 years of service is through an IRA Rollover Contribution.  A qualified charitable distribution is money that individuals who are 70½ or older may direct from their traditional IRA to eligible charitable organizations. The provision has a cap of $100,000 for charitable distributions from individual IRAs each year. Individuals may exclude the amount distributed directly to an eligible charity from their gross income. 

CMO is a 501 (c)(3) organization
David A. & Sharon Filbeck meet with leaders of the Lua Church to discuss the future. 
  and qualifies for your contribution. Before making your contribution consult with your tax advisor and then honor David Lee Filbeck through your IRA Rollover Contribution.

Other CMO Ministries you may want to help support with your IRA contribution:

FORGE Family Life:  A ministry to strengthen families of Christian workers in Thailand and Laos.

NEXT STEP Scholarship:  Providing $500 a year scholarships for students attending Lanna Theological Center.
