Our family needs three types of support as we serve the Lord in Niger:
1. Prayer Support - We covet your prayers. Please stand with us, upholding us before the Throne of Grace, praying for safety, health, provision, spiritual strength, open doors, and boldness to speak!
2. Relationship - Again, we can't do this alone! Thank you to all of you who have so encouraged us by calling, writing, sending packages, and praying!
3. Financial Support - As missionaries in Niger, we rely solely on the Lord for provision of finances for our living and ministry expenses. We are excited to have the opportunity to invite individuals, churches, and businesses to become vital members of our team by partnering with us financially.
All of our finances are handled through Elim Fellowship, our sending organization. Elim is a member of ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability). This organization "...provides accreditation to leading Christian nonprofit organizations that faithfully demonstrate compliance with established standards for financial accountability, fund-raising and board governance." (about ECFA). If you would like more information regarding Elim Fellowship's affiliation with EFCA, please click here.
As stated above, Elim not only handles our financial contributions, but also holds us accountable to godly stewardship principles. Our living and ministry expenses will be maintained through an established budget. If you would like more information about the details of our budget, please feel free to contact us!
