BECOMING A FINANCIAL PARTNER
Going into 2021, I asked the Lord for two specific, numeric goals in terms of missionary partnership. I felt He told me to believe in faith for 50 new financial partners, and for 100 new prayer partners.
Honestly. these two goals felt impossible and unachievable. To my surprise, I made it past 100 prayer partners by January 31st. CRAZY. Thank you Lord!! I'm believing for the same kind of explosive provision when it comes to financial partnership... However, we've only made it to 6/50 so far this year!
As you may or may not know, as a missionary, I rely entirely on financial supporters to live and continue to say yes to the call the Lord has placed on my life. I don't serve under a specific denomination in order to gain income and I have felt strongly NOT to work a part time job - instead to give all my time to the work of the ministry.
Since becoming a full-time missionary in January 2019 - I have been living ENTIRELY by faith - fully reliant on (seemingly) random donations, and monthly financial partnerships. And the Lord has provided everything I need and more. I have full trust and expectancy that He will continue to lead me exceptionally well.
Here's what I know: as long as you love and fear the Lord - we're building the same kingdom and we're on the same team. That means your win is my win and my win is your win. Let's do this together!

6 BIBLICAL REASONS TO GIVE TO A MISSIONARY:
GENEROSITY - Paul instructed Titus to have the Cretan believers support missionaries because they needed to learn to be generous (Titus 3:13-14).
IT'S ACTUALLY GIVING TO GOD - In Numbers 18, God instructed His people to give to Him and provide for the Levites. Paul cites this as the reason people under the new covenant should give to God by giving to missionaries in 1 Corinthians 9.
TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH - Most, if not all, of our disciple-making work is local. Yet we are called to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:18), and Acts 1:8 tells us to put an equal priority on Jerusalem and the ends of the earth. But how can you impact the ends of the earth? 3 John 8 tells us: By giving to missionaries.
YOU WILL BE BLESSED - The Philippians gave generously and repeatedly to Paul’s missionary ministry, and he encouraged them to keep giving for their own sake. “I seek the fruit that abounds to your account,” he wrote in Philippians 4:17.
I NEED YOU - Normally, people who receive goods or services pay for them, providing a living for the people who provide them. I can't charge for the work I do. That’s why, in God’s model, believers give to provide for missionaries (Romans 10:15; Luke 10:7). Your giving is my living.
IT'S BIBLICAL: The New Testament says more about giving to missionaries than about any other type of giving. (Matthew 10:7-10; Mark 6:7-11; Luke 10:1-16; Acts 15:3; Romans 10:13-15; 15:23-24; 1 Corinthians 9:1-14; 16:6-11; 2 Corinthians 1:16; Philippians; Titus 3:13-14; 3 John)
