Example Support Letter #1

                              [Today's Date]

Dear [Recipient]:                                                       

I hope this letter finds you well! I’m writing to share with you an exciting opportunity that I will be participating in this coming [ season, month] and to ask you to consider being a part of it through prayer and financial support.

I am going to [location here] on a [ # ]-day mission trip with Men of Vision Evangelize (MOVE), a men’s ministry of Open Bible Churches. For over 36 years, MOVE has been mobilizing men like myself to construct places of worship, feeding kitchens, mission stations and schools where they are needed most around the world. I will have the opportunity to share the love of Jesus Christ by being a part of a team of men providing a needed structure that will be able to reach others in the local community. I am excited to be given the honor of being God’s hands and feet in places of great need! To learn more about MOVE go to www.moveministries.org.

On the mission trip, I will have the opportunity to minister to the local people every day as they come to assist or watch our team work. We’re never too busy to share with our local brothers and sisters! In the evenings and on Sundays we will have time to worship with and minister to the local people. We will have opportunities to minister in many different ways while we are in [country].

I would like to invite you to be a part of what God has called me to do. Would you prayerfully consider supporting me for this mission trip? I need to raise [total amount] by [date] in order to go. I would consider it a privilege to have you on my team for this exciting opportunity, and I believe the Lord will bless us both through this experience. I also need your prayer support leading up to and throughout my mission trip. Either or both means of support would be appreciated

I will phone you in a week or two to answer any questions you may have and hear of your decision.

Thank you for your time and consideration. It would be great to have you partner with me in working towards the completion of the Great Commission.

Dear [________],

An unbelievable opportunity has come up for me to take part in an international mission project sponsored by Men Of Vision Evangelize.  In [________] I will be going to [________] with an amazing group of men to construct a [________] for the local people there. We will also be sharing with men, women and children about a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  In eleven working days we will have a building constructed that the local church can use to reach those that don’t know the Lord. There may be opportunities for our group to participate in other activities such as: outreach events, orphan ministry, medical clinic, discipleship classes, prison ministry etc. Personally, I am so excited to have the chance to share Christ with another nation. I have always wanted a chance to go to [_______] and serve, and I feel so blessed to have this opportunity coming up this [season / month].

I would love for you to commit to praying for this exciting opportunity.  Pray for our team as they prepare for the trip.  Pray for the people of [_________].  Pray that God will begin to open their hearts to receive the Gospel.  Pray for the local churches and ministries that we will be partnering with throughout the our time there. Most importantly, pray that God will be honored and glorified by our service.

I am also in need of your financial support.  The cost for our upcoming trip is $__________ per person.  This will cover my airfare, food, lodging, and local transportation.  My goal is to raise $_________ by ______________.  If God leads you to be part of the ministry in this way, make your check payable to [Insert Name of Home Church] and mail it in the enclosed self-addressed, stamped envelope.  Checks made payable to [Insert Name of Home Church] are tax deductible for those who itemize their tax returns.  Checks made payable to individuals are not considered charitable contributions.  Any amount will be helpful and greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your consideration in supporting me and my team in prayer and financially.  I will be in touch soon to make sure you received this letter and answer any questions you may have. Until then, you can learn all about our trip at the Men Of Vision Evangelize website www.moveministries.org .  Look for a “Thank You” letter when I return with a personal report on how God used me AND you to reach the people of [____________] with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Your Partner in Christ,
