Missions work cannot be accomplished
by a “pioneer, going it alone”. Mission-
aries need partners.
We are pleased to have 12 supporting
churches, who partner with us in
prayer and financial support.
Additionally we have many individuals,

are also individual financial
We also partner with our Mission
board; without them we would be “all
on our own” in so many ways.
