Missionary Care

CAMPAIGN UPDATE: Merry Missionary

Through #MerryMissionary, our aim was to raise $30,000 by the end of 2019 to fund our 2020 missionary care efforts. We ended 2019 just under $2500 short of our goal. If you would like to give a 2020 gift to help us pour into missionaries this year, you still can!

With your help, we can fill missionaries up through relief and encouragement. It’s the simple things – family retreats, fellowship nights, needed supplies, favorite treats from home, and travel grants for loved ones to visit missionaries on the field. You can give one-time or become a monthly supporter of missionary care.

47% of missionaries leave the field before the end of their first term. Go Be Love seeks to change this.

Being a missionary is rewarding, but it can also be hard. Some challenges include: culture shock, isolation, power outages, hostile bureaucracies, and dealing with the pain that comes with missing loved ones at home. The holidays can be especially difficult times for missionaries and their families.

Because Go Be Love has sent thousands of short-term team members to the mission field since 2005, we are uniquely positioned to come alongside and serve field missionaries. We do this in a number of ways that you’ll see below.

We believe that one of the best uses of a short-term mission team is to serve the long-term people that are there serving on the ground day in and day out. If you have a heart for missionary care, we would love for you to partner with us.

Missionary Care Initiatives

Monthly Support for Missionary Care

Before they can pour into others, missionaries themselves need to be poured into. With your help, we can fill them up through relief and encouragement.

Monthly support helps us pour into missionaries all year long!
$10 per month = $120 per year
$25 per month = $300 per year
$50 per month = $600 per year
$100 per month = $1200 per year

Travel Grants for Loved Ones to Visit Missionaries

Serving on the mission field is rewarding but can also be challenging. One of the hardest parts about serving as a missionary overseas is being so far away from loved ones. A visit from loved ones is often not possible due to high travel costs. As part of Go Be Love’s commitment to encourage and refresh missionaries, we want to help cover some of the travel costs involved to make it possible for loved ones to visit missionaries on the field. 

Fellowship Nights for Missionaries: “Cherished”

Missionaries often experience loneliness and isolation on the mission field. That’s why Go Be Love created “Cherished”, an evening to celebrate and honor missionary Moms & Dads. We host events for moms and for dads in mission fields where Go Be Love is active. These events are filled with all the things moms and dads love, like goodies from the US, favorite snacks, a fantastic meal, fellowship, worship, games, door prizes, and more. Find out more at our “Cherished” page here.
Giving Tree
Go Be Love’s Giving Tree represents a unique opportunity to support, encourage, and refresh field missionaries around the world. Simply display your tree, allow participants to select a tag and donate the money for the item they’ve picked, and Go Be Love will purchase the items selected and send them to the mission field with one of our short-term teams traveling over the holidays.
Missionary Retreats

Overseas mission work is filled with complex challenges: culture shock, isolation, power outages, hostile bureaucracies, and more. In order to thrive on the field, missionaries need support for themselves, and not just their ministry work. One way we support missionaries is by offering retreats for them and their families. 

Project GPS: Gathering. Packing. Supporting.
We created Project G.P.S. (Gathering. Packing. Supporting.) as part of our Missionary Care efforts globally. Project GPS is a unique opportunity to support, encourage, and refresh long-term missionaries. Through Project GPS, “senders” have the ability to collect, pack, and send goods, supplies, and comforts from home to overseas missionaries.
