Sending money isn’t the only way you can support missionaries. If you are looking for more ways you can support missionaries, then take a look at Paradise Praises out-side-of-the-box creative ways to support your missionary. Now that I think about it, all but one family we are friends with in Tonga (Pacific Island, where I live) are missionaries. I heard about missionaries before and even met some, but I never did life with them until I got here. I see them, day in day out, giving everything they have, pouring their hearts out to people many times leaving them with barely anything for themselves. I am not talking about a two week missions trip or missions who stay in hotels while they spread the gospel, but people who felt they were called to the Island , and those passing through called to other third world countries.
Most of them had no idea where their food or shelter would come from one day to the next. Their marriages suffered and kids got sick , yet all they depended on was God. That i why when this article spoke about different ways to support missionaries, I saw that the ideas were spot on. My missionary friends here are well aware that all can be taken away in the blink of an eye, so to receive some encouragement and support from back home is sometimes all they need to help them take one more step. Teach your children these things as well, it is priceless to support those who are carrying out the great commission to the ends of the Earth.
