At this point (June 2017) we are short about $800 a month for what we believe God intends to provide for our family of 5 for personal and ministry use. This additional money will cover our children’s tuition, our medical and insurance, and ministry travel and seminar/training costs. A little goes a long way for us. A gift of $100 a month covers our house rent or our ministry gasoline expenses! It is easy to send one-time gifts or commit to a monthly contribution. You can send an immediate gift by clicking on the PayPal “Donate” button on the bottom of the page or by clicking here.
Shepherd Staff Mission Facilitators (SSMFI) handles our financial support and distributes our monthly “salary” to us. They’ve taken very good care of us and we’re glad to be partners with their organization!

Major Personal Needs
Separate from our monthly budget and expenses, we have one-time major needs that we’re earnestly praying will be met this year.
KITCHEN – Last November, we experienced the catastrophic collapse of our kitchen cabinetry (read about it here.) We’re raising $500 in funds to rebuild the main kitchen cabinet which until now remains a vacant wall. The money will cover the wood, trim and labor to build the new cabinet with skilled carpenters. We already have the paint and door knobs on hand.
BEDROOM – We’ve only ever had a single “family” bed in the small bedroom we share with our two kids. Now that our kids are growing and need space, we’re praying for $500 in funds to hire a carpenter to build a full-size wood lofted bed frame. Grown-ups will be on top and the kids will be on new mattresses below. Yay for better, restful sleep!
PRINTER – We urgently need a printer for daily personal and ministry use at the house. It’s very difficult to constantly make trips to the print shops to print documents for school assignments and ministry activities. Having a printer would enable us to be much more productive and better equipped to serve our community. A locally sourced printer and ink will cost about $200.
