How much support (money) do you need to raise in order to serve in Ecuador?
Traveling and living overseas is expensive. Our family needs to raise an estimated 150,000 in support. This will provide us an Ecuadorian middle class standard of living and allow us to meet our family’s basic needs while we minister to the people. Our support will cover everything that we need to serve with SIM. Airfare, vaccination, passports, visas, language classes, rent, home-set up costs, etc. are all things that must be provided for before we are able to leave.
Donations can be given as one-time gifts and through commitments of monthly, quarterly, or yearly gifts. We need regular support or letters of intent to be coming in NOW. This is important because it lets SIM know what support we have and how much more we need. The mission will not allow us to leave for Ecuador until they know we should be fully supported. We are anxious to go and would like to fly out in April. Now is the time to let us know if you desire to be a part of our support team.
If God is calling you to be part of our ministry, please look over to the right side-bar. There is a "Donate Now" button that will take you to online support section of the SIM website.
If 200 people will support us at 20.00 a month, then we will have enough of our support raised that we will be able to arrive in Ecuador in April. Will you pray about being one of those people?
