Art McCleary's Staff Support Fundraiser

One of the greatest obstacles to following the call into missionary service is the dread of having to raise support.  Many who are called, never apply and others fail to complete the application process.  Those who do follow through, are still wrestling with misconceptions and false rumors.  That is where I come in.  My first contact with a missionary applicant is to help them understand the facts, to answer questions and to share experiences.  This usually alleviates enough fears to convince them to complete the application process.

Once approved as a missionary candidate, it takes a year on average to develop enough ministry partners (those who will support them in finances and/or prayer) to become fully funded.  Invariably they hit times of discouragement and disappointment.  It can be a lonely time, but one in which they learn to be self-disciplined and a self-starter, which is a necessary skill for missionaries.  During that time, I guide them, encourage them, monitor them, and hold them accountable.  

Missionary candidates are encouraged to learn that we have been partner supported for over 30 years and that some of our partners have stood by us 30+ years.  The Lord has always provided for us through those He calls to share the blessings they have received from Him.  We are often surprised by who God uses and His timing, but we have learned to simply trust Christ in all circumstances.

Now, our Heavenly Father has brought you to this point.  As you consider donating, please know that monthly ministry partners provide the financial stability and those who give special gifts help to meet specific needs.  Thank you for being a blessing not only to us, but to the missionaries that we are called to shepherd during a difficult time.
