** BUS INSURANCE is $340 per quarter
due 2/7/18 (not paid yet), 5/7/18, 8/7/18, 11/7/18
** DIESEL FUEL
Our bus fuel tank is 194 gallons. It takes a lot to fill it up with the
diesel prices fluctuating up and down. The average price for diesel
per gallon is $3.16 per gallon. That's over $600 to fill up if we are empty.
Our bus gets about 6 miles per gallon. This is our only means of travel
and our home away from home while on the road.
** MONTHLY FINANCIAL SUPPORT
As with every other ministry, there is a business side to it. Unfortunately,
this is the side that no one seems to understand. But The Lisemby Family
Ministries have expenses just like any other entity. We have every day expenses
such as office expense, postage, utilities, payroll, travel supplies, advertising, etc.
All of these expenses cost us each and every month. If there are no funds
available, then these do not get paid. Won't you consider donating monthly?
We have some who are donating $25 a month, others $100 a month, and we thank
those who are donating monthly, but there is room for your donations of any
amount. There is a need.
We are a musical family, and we love sharing the songs that God has given us
with you by way of recordings. It costs to re-order past CDs and we are
currently wanting to record another. It's been 5 years since our last recording
and we have so many wonderful new songs that we want to share with the world.
It costs us approximately $300 to re-order 100 of our CDs. For a new CD, the cost
is around $500 for 100. We are currently out of several of our CDs due to the lack
of funds. Won't you help us order them?
From batteries for mics, cords, stands, to microphones, amps, keyboards, sound boards,
speakers, etc. - they all break, they all go out, they all have problems. And it costs
to replace them. Our keyboards are heavy, and we are needing to replace them with lighter
weight instruments. Our sound board is having some electronics issues, and we need to
replace it. We are needing new speakers as well. If you are interested in supplying
this need, please message us, as these items are not cheap, and each item is different
in price. If you are interested in donating towards the regular upkeep, then please use
the Donation button to the right, and it will go towards the regular things that go out
(i.e. cords, batteries, stands, etc.)
We are in need of a good quality camera/video camera, so we can video our services
and and take quality photos of our ministry travels. (Don't have any details as of
Tires, oil changes, belts, filters, plumbing, a/c and heat issues, electrical, etc. all these
are real expenses that we deal with for our bus. It is our "home away from home" and
just like any home, there are upkeep expenses. Just for instance, this recent winter
weather outbreak caused ALL of our plumbing under the bus to break and have to be
replaced. We have it fixed so we can use it, but it is not completed. Our bus heating
went out during this winter weather, and we were forced to make other heating arrangements
to try to keep us warm as we go down the road. It's not as good as the bus heating, but
we made do. These expenses took monies from our already low funds, to get our bus
where we could go to our engagements back in January. And those funds have not been
If you know us, then you know that we don't make a habit of crying for money. We stand by the fact that God is our Sponsor, and always shall be. BUT we do know that he uses His people to make those funds available to our ministry. We are making this page, to let our needs be made known. If you do not know the needs, then how can you help?
Please prayerfully consider helping us financially. We depend upon God's people to keep us going.
God called this ministry into existence, and we will continue on until He calls us out. Please pray for us that God will meet our needs.

A Family reaching other families for christ
Many people have asked us, "How can we help your ministry? What do you need?" We were recently told by some very dear friends, that we need to let our needs be made known. This page is to answer those questions.
As many of you know, we are celebrating 45 years in full-time evangelism. We have been blessed to have been able to travel all across the United States, and minister in many different countries over the years. We have seen thousands come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. We have seen countless thousands turn from sin, and walk closer to Jesus. We have seen families brought back together, and broken lives and relationships mended.
We have never been a "number counting" ministry, but we do seek those numbers. Those numbers represent the lost, they represent lives that are hurting, and broken without Jesus.
The Bible says,"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13
It goes on to say this, "How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?" Romans 10:14
And then,"And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!" Romans 10:15
Ephesians 4:11-12 says, "And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:" We are God-called evangelists.
Of course, we covet your prayers and realize that without your prayers we can do nothing.
Unfortunately, in the world we live in, it takes financial support from those who believe in a ministry, to keep that ministry going. We are asking you to help us keep going. Help us to keep traveling so we can sing and preach and lift up the Name of Jesus to this lost and dying world.
We have listed below our immediate financial needs for this ministry to keep doing what God has called us to do. The items with the asterisk (*) are immediate needs. Please prayerfully consider joining with us, and partnering with us as we reach those families for Jesus Christ.
If you can help financially with any item, please click on the "Donate" button next to the item you wish to contribute towards. We will know what your gift is going towards. THERE IS A GREAT NEED.
Thank you in advance for your support.
