Question about Mission Agencies for missionaries:
"How do I find a service agency? My home church is sending me directly but I need help with newsletters, processing contributions, etc."
If a service agency is what you need, check out these possibilities:
Assisting Christian Individuals, International (Ontario, CA)
Adopt a Missionary International (Overland Park, KS)
Shepherd's Staff Mission Facilitators (Albuquerque, NM)
Bridge the Gap International (Tulsa, OK)
Ripe for Harvest World Outreach (Arroyo Grande, CA)
Global Outreach Mission Inc. (Buffalo, NY)
Go Ye Fellowship (Pasadena, CA)
Commission to Every Nation (Kerrville, TX)
They make [salary] deposits twice a month, rather than once as most do. This really helps with cash flow. Gifts are receipted monthly. And what is a real plus with WOM is that whether donors give that month or not, they get a monthly mailing from WOM on your behalf, along with a return envelope for gifts. This feature alone fulfills one of my key principles: Make it easy for folks to give!
The donor reports show the date, check number, WOM's deposit number, the donors' full names and donation amount - handy when writing thank you notes and cards. Mailing lists and labels are available on them, and you can customize your greetings.
After twenty-five years, I am a very satisfied WOMer!
