Sponsor a Missionary
When you sponsor a Missionary you enable indigenous missionaries to spread the Gospel to their People Group
Call us at 434-977-5650 to contribute by phone. If you prefer to mail your gift, please mail to Christian Aid, P.O. Box 9037, Charlottesville, VA 22906. Please use Gift Code: 095TBA. Thank you!
You can personally support a full-time missionary
The amount needed to support each missionary varies according to country, location, and family status. For example, living costs are higher in the Middle East than in Mexico; Mexico is higher than India. Workers in larger cities need more support than those in rural villages; married men need more than single workers. So while $50 per month is barely adequate in a few areas, much more is needed in other places. Christian Aid seeks to find sponsors for native missionaries at $50 per month. In most cases where it takes more than that, several sponsors are sought. Each individual or church which sends $50 or more monthly will be assigned a missionary for whom they can pray.
What you will recieve
Christian Aid will send you the name, photo and biographical sketch of the one assigned to you, as well as information about the indigenous ministry responsible. We will also send you updates on the one you sponsor as they become available (once or twice each year).
Especially needed is support for missionaries working in areas where North American missionaries cannot go. In places like China, the Middle East or certain critical areas in Southeast Asia, names and photos of the missionaries are sometimes supplied, but sending biographical information and worker reports outside the country can jeopardize the worker.
How your gift will be used
Your monthly gifts will be sent to the indigenous mission in charge of the one you sponsor. They will be combined with those of others to provide for the missionaries within their group.
Pray for your missionary
Pray each day by name for the person whose picture you hold in your hands. You will have the deep satisfaction of knowing that your gifts help meet the needs of that fervent missionary in an area where you probably could never go as a foreign missionary.
Your missionary may never know the one who sends his or her support - only that his or her needs are being met in answer to prayer. Missionaries only know that the Lord supplies their needs.
Christian Aid is not able to send specific missionary information from ministries in the Middle East and China. Vibrant and effective ministries are indeed working in these regions, but ongoing security issues restrict communications and information gathering vital to maintaining a specific missionary sponsorship program.
If you wish to sponsor a missionary in a specific region of the world, please note that in the COMMENT box in the basket. We will do our best to oblige, but please remember that there are regions where we cannot provide individual missionary information for security reasons, and there are areas that we do not have active missionary sponsorships at this time.
