You Can Lighten The Load: Give Regularly
In a series of rhetorical questions, Paul asks, “How shall they preach unless they are sent?” (Romans 10:15a) One of the most tangible ways to enable your missionaries to preach is providing for their daily financial needs.
By definition, missionaries take the Gospel message to a cross-cultural setting. Especially in the early years of ministry, they face many unique obstacles: the language barrier, foreign culture, strange customs, new living arrangements and neighbors, visa paperwork... The list goes on.
Amidst all the unknowns, you can lighten the load by contributing towards their monthly living expenses. Before they leave for the field, inquire about their estimated monthly budget, and find out how to send donations. As a church and missions committee, prayerfully consider how you will assist with their monthly financial needs.
