How Can You Help?

Although our minimum support is pledged, we are below the level recommended by our mission organization. If God has been prompting you to join our team, we’d love to hear from you! We also understand that many of you want to participate but won’t be on our regular support team.

Those contributions are important too! We’ll be depending on special contributions to bridge any gap between pledged support and our actual ministry expenses.

What’s Next?

We hope to see many of you before we leave on January 1 to begin four to eight months of intensive Spanish language study in Costa Rica.  After that, Quito–sometime in 2014.
