After eight years in ministry, our financial needs have changed. Our monthly support level has become insufficient according to Shepherd Staff, our mission sending agency. We literally depend on God for every dollar we receive, with which we feed our family, pay normal bills, tithe and bless our local community. We maintain a standard of living that fits with our community (fishermen, farmers, laborers), and like them we pinch every penny and live less than the western standard. Our family is not able to return until we are at a sustainable level.
At this point (August 2018) we are short $1,000 a month what we believe God intends to provide for our household of 5 for personal and ministry use. A little goes a long way for us. A gift of $100 a month covers our house rent or our ministry gasoline expenses!
Personally, our biggest challenge and most urgent prayer request is getting us, the Mallorca family, back to Maasin to obey the Lord’s calling on our lives by continuing to serve the city of Maasin and its youth. Our hearts’ deepest desire is to be physically present and serving alongside our church members as the HUB and Library come to life.
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!

Other Major Personal Needs
Separate from our monthly budget and expenses, and ministry goals, we have one-time major needs that we’re earnestly praying will be met this year.
KITCHEN – Last November 2016, 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 and buy mattresses for the kids. Mom and Dads will be on top and the kids will be below. Yay for better, restful sleep!
