Missionary CareSupporting missionaries around the world.
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.
CURRENT CAMPAIGN: Summer Blockbuster
“Summer Blockbuster” is a monthly donor campaign for Go Be Love International that puts missionaries in the spotlight!
This Summer 2019 campaign will highlight specific missionaries that Go Be Love has served. Missionary care is an important but often overlooked area of ministry. At Go Be Love, it is the heart of who we are and what we do. Through our short-term teams, we come alongside missionaries in a number of ways including hosting on-field retreats, utilizing team luggage space to carry over gifts for missionaries and their children, hosting missionary fellowship nights and more. New for 2019, we also introduced a new initiative to provide travel grants for loved ones to visit missionaries on the field.
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.
