Support: Prayer & Finances


Prayer is THE MOST IMPORTANT aspect of our ministry.  Without prayer, nothing else happens.  Join our prayer and news email list by sending an email request to


We rely on the generous and ongoing support of individuals and churches to enable us to live and work in West Africa. We are currently running about 5% below budget.

SIM sets a monthly budget for us.  Our annual support received must average out to this amount per month. Over the course of the year, we receive support in the following ways:

  • The majority of financial supporters opt to give a set amount each month.
  • The remaining people and churches on this team tend to give quarterly, semi-annually, or annually.
  • Many people give One time support, which enables us to achieve ministry goals that are “out-of-the-box” and also make up for “shortfalls” on a month-to-month basis.

Support levels are difficult to track. Last month, we had a little over 100% of our budget given, while this month, we will have about 60% of our target donated. It varies month-to-month.

The frequency and amount of your giving is between you and God.  We encourage you to pray about whether or not this integral part of cross-cultural missions is an area in which you want to be involved.  Read our blog post that explains how support works.
