Tips for Preparing your Will

Dear Friends,

Some people are uncomfortable talking about Wills and other estate planning issues. It reminds us all that life on earth isn’t permanent.

Yet, as believers in Jesus, we have a wonderful future to look forward to. And there can be real satisfaction and comfort knowing that you’re properly organized through an up-to-date Will – an expression of your wishes and priorities.

After your loved ones have been cared for, a charitable gift in your Will could be one final way for you to leave a lasting mark of love on the world.

By leaving a gift in your Will to cbm, you’ll show that love by restoring sight and ability to men, women and children…

Your legacy could be training eye surgeons to perform cataract surgery, building operating rooms for children who need their twisted feet straightened…

You’ll be a key part in thousands of God’s miracles each year.
