Mugs for Missionaries
Help Us Pour Into Missionaries!
Through #MugsforMissionaries, our aim is to raise $30,000 by the end of 2018 to fund our 2019 missionary care efforts. Thanks to a generous match, all donations, up to $15,000, will be doubled through December 31, 2018. 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 we’ve ALSO added an option for you to help send a friend or family member to visit a missionary on the field.
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
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.
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.
