Your Global Impact

Help Comes When You Give

When you learn of a need, you want to meet it. You hear missionaries at your church speak of their calling, and you want to help. You long to promote the cause of the gospel, but you aren’t sure how to accomplish all your heart desires. You want very much for your giving to accelerate the spread of the gospel around the world through a Christ-centered, focused missionary force.

And that is possible when you give to BMM’s Global Impact Fund.

Picture this scene

At a foreign airport arrival hall, a veteran missionary couple, weary but smiling, watches the crowd emerging from the customs line. With joy they spot the young family they came to welcome—new missionaries who visited your church. These young parents are pushing overladen luggage carts as they step out into their new ministry homeland.

Your gift to the Global Impact Fund helps them all: The young missionary family has been touched by BMM’s recruitment staff and has attended our Advance Weekend event to focus intently on missions and help them clarify their calling. They came to our Candidate Seminar to help prepare for the many facets of missionary life. They completed deputation, sharing their ministry in many churches. Once their support started, BMM’s Global Ministry Center staff undertook their accounting tasks, receipting and allocating their support as it arrived from many new sources. Field administrators introduced the family to the team of missionaries on their field and will minister to them through the long arc of their missionary service, from culture shock to retirement. And the veteran couple is working with our Missionary Finance Department as they plan their transition to retirement.

Your gift touches them all by supporting the myriad efforts of BMM’s Global Ministry Center staff, who work with a single passion: to help every missionary fulfill their calling.

This entire global gospel effort is fueled when you give. Truly, hope comes when we help, and help comes when we give.

Please prayerfully consider a generous gift today to Baptist Mid-Missions to support the Global Impact Fund. An envelope is enclosed for your convenience, or you may choose another means of giving. However you give, you are sending help to those who desperately need the hope of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
