Donation Details

After much research, phone calls, and emails, it seems that the best way for us to raise funds for our mission expedition will be to use two methods:

1) Gospel Ministries International (GMI)--a non-profit organization we will be working with in the Philippines has agreed to be used as a conduit for tax deductible donations via mail-in checks.
2) For online donations, PayPal has proven to be the easiest and most convenient way for non-tax deductible donations. So, donors have a choice in how they want to give. If there are any questions, please post them on this website. To donate, see the left sidebar. Thanks for the support!
