Consider the following true account of a farmer in Iowa who upon retirement sold his equipment and put the proceeds in a Charitable Remainder Unitrust. The farmer received an annuity payment from Unitrust for 10 years, and the remaining balance of the CRUT was distributed equally between his five favorite ministries.
Recently Gospel Literature Services received a check for $12,500 from this Charitable Unitrust, designated for printing and distributing gospel literature. That single check from a faithful believer will provide a whole year’s Sunday School curriculum for 143 ministries in 25 countries. That couple will meet the people in Heaven who were reached through the stewardship of their assets.
Your children will be encouraged by the inheritance that you leave for them, but what about your stewardship responsibility to your favorite ministries? Estate planning tools will help you do both. It is good to remember ministry organizations such as Gospel Literature Services, GARBC Ministries, and other Biblical ministry organizations when planning your estate.
