18 Oct Ways to Help Missions
Here are some ways that you can have an impact on global missions as an individual.
Flying an entire family across the globe can be quite costly. Many people have unused or unwanted air miles that could be of great benefit to a missionary looking at spending several thousand dollars on airfare. Also,you can get credit cards that accrue miles as a benefit. Air miles can then be shared or gifted to others who have an air miles account with that same airline or partner airline.
Shopping on Amazon has become a normal thing for many people. If you use Amazon Smile and select Preach Evangelistic Ministries as your preferred charity, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase to Preach. It may not seem like much, but when dozens or hundreds of people use it, the donation really adds up. Go to: smile.amazon.com (DO NOT enter the “www” at the beginning). When you first go there, it gives you the option to search for the charity of your choice. Select Preach Evangelistic Ministries and then continue shopping.
Tons of Truth:
Did you know that for just $800 you can send 1 ton, 2000 pounds of Scripture to another country? That equates to 20,790 John & Romans, or 1,980 complete Bibles!! On average, 11 people will read each portion of Scripture. What a tremendous opportunity to be able to put God’s Word into the hands of those who do not have it.
You can send a one-time, monthly, quarterly, etc. gift to a specific missionary or to various on-going projects. These can be mailed to the office or given online through either our website(www.preachteams.org)or through the Preach App (search Preach Evangelistic Ministries in the app stores). Financial needs a reoften times only expressed to God, and God’s leading on your heart might just be the answer to someone’s prayer.
The most important thing you can do for missions is to pray. Pray for the missionary’s physical, spiritual, and emotional strength and safety. Pray for open doors and open hearts for the hearing of God’s Word. Satan is ever so vigilant in his attempts to send missionaries home, so it is vitally important to have fellow Christians being vigilant in praying for them.
“Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” James 5:16
“Brethren, Pray for us.” 1 Thess. 5:25
Short-term Missions Trip:
PREACH has frequent opportunities available for short-term missions trips. Whether it be a project to pioneer into a new unreached area, a building project, or Scripture distribution project, there are a variety of ways in which you can personally and physically have an impact on the furtherance of God’s Gospel throughout the world. We have opportunities both here in the USA and in various countries abroad.
Volunteer Work Teams:
Often times, there are projects close to home simply needing hands to help. PREACH frequently has a need for teams to come assist with construction work, loading shipments, or other projects. Donating time and labor to these endeavors is a great blessing to the missions they support.
