We desire to be sensitive to our prayer partners in regards to communicating about finances. We look to the Lord to provide for our support and praise Him for the people He has added to our support team. If at any time you would like to know how our support is currently, simply ask us.
If you would like to know more about our finances, please scroll down the page…
Since being commended to serve God full-time by Westside Bible Fellowship, in Hillsboro, OR, USA, in 2004, we have served in missions as volunteers. This means that we do not live based on a salary, but trusting God to provide through unsolicited donations from God’s people. The regular and one-off gifts that we have received over the years have made it possible for us to fulfill the ministry God has called us to. We profoundly appreciate every supporter past and present, and wish we could express our gratitude more frequently and personally!
Like other missionaries, our support target is determined by the cost of living, which means that the target figure rises as living costs increase over time. Another factor influencing support is the fluctuations in exchange rates.
Our Approach to Finance
We do not ask people to support our ministry. We also do not communicate appeals for our finances in our news updates or preaching. We feel it is right to share information openly with anyone who asks. On this web page you will find addresses through which support can be sent to us. You can also ask us any questions by email that might help you understand our situation better. Our desire is to be both discreet and appropriately transparent in this area.
