Because of security reasons and the enormous overhead it would create, we are unable to allow direct correspondence with your national missionaries. Many may have little or no knowledge of English, and GFA does not have sufficient staff to translate thousands of personal letters. Most importantly, direct communication could severely hinder their work among the non-Christian communities and place their lives in danger.
It is our sincere desire to keep you updated on what is happening on the field. You will receive regional updates from the region that your missionary is serving in. Also, we publish a weekly email digest that includes stories and videos from the field.
In the spirit of unity and equality, we have a policy that does not allow for special gifts to be sent directly to a missionary. The leaders where your missionary serves make sure all the national workers have the resources they need to live and serve in their particular area of ministry. Your support of national missions helps make that possible.
While it takes up to $360 to fully support one national worker, your $30 pledge is one part of the program that helps provide for our brothers’ and sisters’ ministry needs as well as living and family expenses.
Your prayers will make a significant difference in your missionary’s life. It’s through your prayers that your missionary will see breakthroughs in his or her ministry; it’s through your prayers that people in the areas where he or she serves will come to realize the love of Christ; it’s through your prayers that your missionary will be sustained and able to press on when hardships arise.
We'll be glad to assist you. Call us at 1-800-946-2742.
