Only ask, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance,
the whole earth as your possession. - Psalm 2:8
PEOPLE GIVE TO PEOPLE.
Sending letters will not be enough to accomplish your support raising goal. Make sure you personally follow-up with people. Make a personal visit. Call each person or company one week after the initial letter is sent to see if they have received it and what they thought about your request. Don’t just assume they will remember to send in the money if the funds have not yet been received. If they are not giving to this specific outreach request, ask that they pray for safety and success of the team.
Part of your experience is learning how to build financial and prayer support much like a long-term missionary would. This requires sending a letter to everyone you know, building a prayer support team, and raising the needed funds.
STEP ONE: CREATE A POTENTIAL SPONSOR CONTACT LIST
STEP TWO: CREATE YOUR ONE-PAGE SUPPORT LETTER
The letter should include:
STEP THREE: MAKE PHONE CALLS
STEP FOUR: SOCIAL MEDIA
Maximize your social media presence via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.
SUPPORT LETTER SAMPLE:
I hope this letter finds you in good health and enjoying all God’s blessings. I thank God for each one of you and the interest you have had in my life. Because of this, I am excited to share my present opportunity with you. Recently God has opened a door of ministry for me to take part in a Global Reach Mission team through Church of the King.
I have been placed on the Argentina Team which is scheduled for April 3 – 21, 2012. My team will spend time training together where we will go through intensive preparations for ministry. At training we will learn important skills that will help us to minister to nationals and live together as a unified team. By April 3 our training will be complete and my team will fly out of New Orleans. We will be helping the missionaries with their daily work as well as running several special projects and events. We might find ourselves conducting open air meetings, distributing literature, leading Bible studies, teaching English classes, working in children’s ministries or doing work projects. Whatever we do, I am certain that God will use us to further His kingdom.
First, I will need prayer support. I need to have at least 10 prayer partners, people who will pray for me every day that I’m in ministry. This form of help is vitally necessary to the success of the team. So please consider committing to be one of my prayer partners. Also, I will need your help financially. The total cost of the mission trip is $2,400.00. You can help through one time gifts or through monthly gifts over the next three months.
If you feel God is calling you to be a part of this ministry by contributing financially please use one of the following options:
