That’s what long-term supporter Sarah* said to me when I met up with her recently to talk about leaving a bequest for Scripture Union WA.
A bequest to SU WA enables you to leave a legacy that will help see children, young people and families come to know God’s good news.
Sarah told me about her involvement in SU camps and beach missions when she was “just a young thing” and how she made a commitment to follow Jesus on an SU camp.
That decision to serve the Lord led to her leading on beach mission teams for much of her young adulthood, and to supporting other gospel work in Western Australia and overseas. Now she volunteers for a local Bible College, helps fundraise for a theological college in Africa and is very involved in her local church.
Sarah has written her Will so that it provides for her family but it also sets aside 10% for SU WA. She said it was easy to do and was pleased I had suggested it.
Her first response to me was, “Why didn’t I think of that before now?” If, like Sarah, you haven’t thought about this but would like to discuss a bequest, please call SU on (08) 9371 9100 and ask for an information pack.
Then you can say you did think of that!
