I'm looking for practical, helpful projects that the ladies in our church can do together to help missionaries on the field or on deputation/furlough.
We pray and write to our missionaries as individuals. But we need something more, a project we can work on as a group of ladies, maybe involving the children.
For example, if a missionary needed school supplies for a back-to-school outreach, we might collect items for a couple months and then put them together into baskets for the missionary to give out. Of course, shipping is often more expensive than the items so it may be cheaper to just raise money for the missionary to buy items on the field.
We could also use ideas for how churches keep members informed about their missionaries.
I plan to contact our missionaries to find their needs but I just wanted to see what other projects churches have done. I look forward to your posts.
