Mary TV Denis' update -May 7, 2013

Dear Family of the Gospa of Medjugorje!
Cathy and I want to thank all who responded to my May 1st appeal for donations: News from Denis 05/01/13 Thanks to your generosity MARY TV will be able to continue daily operations until the end of this month. PRAISE GOD! And thank you to all who have responded so generously!!!
In a nut shell our financial need is this: If Mary TV had 500 monthly donors, each giving about $30 a month, we could fund our daily operations (We need $15,000 a month, minimum, to meet our commitments). As of now we have about 100 faithful monthly donors who give at varied levels. So you can see we are falling short each month. The answer is for each of us to give what we can on a monthly basis, and to spread the word to others about Mary TV. The more people who take part in our programing, the more people we will have supporting Mary TV. (It is most convenient for us when a donor sets up an on line recurring donation - it's secure and safe - at www.marytv.tv .)
As for meeting larger expenses - finishing our TV studios in Medjugorje and fixing the flooding in the basement, Jesus may have his own plan... Note the email below that I received the day after sending out my May 1st appeal:
Hi Cathy and Denis.
Jo the lottery donator here. Guess what, I put a ticket on for you last night and you won £100.00
I will send it to you as soon as I cash it in.
Now there is a story to this ticket and if it wasn't for my poor memory I'm sure you would have won more, but it's a start.
I woke up on Monday through the night, it was about 2.35 am and I couldn't get back to sleep.
I thought about Mary TV and how it would be sad if Denis couldn't fulfill his dream of Mary TV.
I decided to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet, I must have fallen asleep, but I was aware that I was dreaming of six lottery numbers, I was reciting them over in my dream. The numbers were shown to me in a line.
I have a poor memory but as soon as I woke up fully I wrote down the numbers that I remembered. I only remembered four out of the six, they were, 7 8 11 42, I thought about the other numbers, I knew that one was low but I couldn't think of them, so I put 3, instead of 2 and 47.
I was just out of winning the jackpot.
I am utterly joyful, because here is the proof that Our Lord wants you to fulfill your dream for our lady, the conversion of many to Jesus through Gospa.
If you happen to wake up in the middle of the night and find it hard to get back to sleep - consider praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet for MARY TV. Hopefully you'll have a pencil and piece of paper close by... Ha!!!
Though we don't intend to recommend the lottery, you get the point!! God may have His own way to help us with our larger financial needs. Let's pray, pray, pray!
ONE FINAL REQUEST:
PLEASE FORWARD MY APPEAL to three people you know who love Our Lady and might consider supporting MARY TV with a monthly donation! If we all work together, we can continue to connect Our Lady of Medjugorje to her children all over the world!!
Thank you and God bless you!
