Current Campaign: “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’ll host separate events for moms and for dads in several of the mission fields where Go Be Love is active. These events will be 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.
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’ll also be adding some new ways for 2018 very soon.
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.
Merry Missionary was our 2017 year-end fundraising campaign to support missionaries by letting them know they are seen, known and loved. This includes little things that make a big difference – family retreats, new supplies, favorite treats from home and more. 2017 has ended but you can still give to this campaign to support missionaries if you desire. Find out more at our Merry Missionary page here.
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.
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. We offered two retreats in 2017 and have several planned for 2018.
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.
