There are many Types of Palanca and ways for you to support Abundant Life Tres Dias and build this Christian Community in Action!
SPONSORING A CANDIDATE:
If God has placed someone's name upon your heart to attend a Tres Dias Weekend, talk to them, pray for (and with) them, and give them an application. Read thoroughly the responsibilities of being a sponsor (they go way beyond the weekend!!!) Partial scholarships are available. Applications can be obtained from the Pre-Weekend chair Kirsten Ackmann at email@example.com or at the ALTD website http://www.rockfordaltd.webs.com/. Applications are due 10 days prior to the men's weekend!
Make a Friend. Be a Friend. Bring a Friend to Christ.
The prayer scroll is the easiest, and the most important, ways to serve the Lord through Tres Dias. The 75-hour prayer vigil begins for the Weekend on Thursday evening and ends Sunday evening. To sign up for a time to pray please go to the website http://www.3dayol.org/Vigil/GetComm.phtml?SortID=3. Contact the Palanca Chair, George and Jenny McIntyre with any questions. You can also pray for other 4th day communities on their weekends, you can find them listed at : http://www.tresdias.org/f/p.htm
Provide perishable and/or paper products for the weekend, team trainings and/or secuelas. Also, there is always a need for weekend accessories, rollo room supplies and banners. The list is almost endless. Use your imagination!!! For further information contact Weekend Chair, Bill Pieters.
Help with the set-up and/or tear down at the retreat center and transport supplies and luggage. For information contact Weekend Chair, Bill Pieters.
GIFT AND LETTER PALANCA:
Gifts: There are (a possible) 30 candidates and (approx.) 40-45 team members per weekend. Number guidelines for gift palanca are as follows: 75 for the dining room, 50 for the rollo room (to include the rollistos/rollistas and silent professors, and table of servanthood) and 30 for the candidates' "pillow palanca", (these figures assume a full 30 candidate weekend).
Letters: should be marked in the upper left corner of the envelope with the writer's relationship to the Candidate ("Community," "Team.," "Sponsor," "Family," "Pastor," "Friend). Please put the Candidate's name in the center of the envelope (Smith, Mary, for example). For further information contact Palanca Chair, George and jenny McIntyre.
ALTD receives no support from Tres Dias International. Weekends are fully supported by the community. Financial contributions can be made to the general fund or for a specific need such as candidate or team scholarship funds, and are tax deductible.
