The December sharing amounts have been sent and members received a 5% reduction in what they send for the month of December. This happens whenever the needs are lower than the amount of money available. When less is needed members get a reduction and get to keep the difference, or they can choose to send it on for special prayer needs, or go out to dinner, basically whatever they want! 🙂
I love that Samaritan does this, it’s the only ministry to have such a policy. And we all know insurance doesn’t reduce our monthly premiums! Samaritan has had share reductions several times over the past couple of years.
Also, don’t forget that online sharing has been made available using paypal.me through our Samaritan dashboard. The more members who signup to accept online payments the more this feature will be available to those who want to send their shares online.
