Our Monthly Support Needs

Our monthly support need is set by Baptist Mid-Missions (BMM) based on our family and ministry needs. At the present time, we praise God for 9 churches and 24 individuals who support us and have brought us to 55% of our total monthly need. When we reach 60% of our needed support, we will attend "launch seminar" at BMM to prepare for living full-time at Missionary Acres. When we reach 100% of our support, we will move to Missionary Acres and begin our ministry there. Our total monthly need is separated into two categories - personal expenses and ministry expenses. Personal expenses include food, housing, utilities, clothing, education, medical expenses, retirement, and personal vehicle expenses. This accounts for 58% of our overall support. Ministry expenses include BMM's group insurance, BMM missionary services, donor communications, work funds, and ministry vehicle. These items account for about 42% of our total need.   

 

One-Time Expenses

A missionary needs to raise their monthly support in order to get to the field. In addition, they must also raise their "outfit and passage." This involves the initial expense of getting them to the field.   In our case, the initial expenses that we will have will involve replacement of a worn-out deputation vehicle and getting our house ready to live in at Missionary Acres. We have already begun remodeling this house. In order to make our home move-in ready, we estimate the following expenses:

  • Plumbing work (including fixtures) $1,500.00

  • Structural changes (including lumber, drywall, insulation, etc.)         $1,500.00

  • Kitchen cabinets/countertops $5,000.00

  • Kitchen appliances $2,500.00

  • Floor coverings $4,000.00

All gifts for initial expenses are made directly to Baptist Mid-Missions as well. Individuals and churches who are unable to support us on a monthly basis may choose to make a one-time gift towards these initial expenses.
