Regarding your September Fan into Flame story: I want to know if the $50 million figure for funds raised for Fan into Flame is clear of the cost involved. If it is, then we really have something to praise God about, if not, shouldn’t we be more transparent and let people know what the bottom line is, the monies raised minus the cost. This would give us a more accurate picture of the campaign.
