In a small town, the volunteer fire department’s telephone was answered by the police station who would in turn sound the fire whistle to rally the volunteers to duty. One morning, the chief of police had just arrived when the fire department phone rang. He picked up the phone and said, "Fire Department." A voice on the other end of the line frantically said, "Send the fire truck!" And immediately hung up. Realizing that someone’s house was possibly at stake, he devised a plan to keep the caller from hanging up so quickly if she called back. Sure enough the phone rang a second time. Picking up the phone he quickly asked, "Where’s the fire?" The lady on the other end screamed, "In the kitchen," and slammed the phone down again. (Source: “A Patient Faith” by Nathan Johnson)
Sometimes even our best intentions can miss the mark if we don’t have all of the facts. The same is true with Estate Planning. Proverbs 21:5 says, “Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity…” A proper Estate Plan can ensure that your family and ministries you support like Bethany Christian Services are taken care of and your assets are handled according to your wishes. Plus, a Will communicates value and love to your family long after you’re gone. Get the facts and make sure your Will is up-to-date. This “good planning” will bring comfort and protection to your family’s future.
