Recently, Serge missionaries shared their feelings about Serge Missionary Care.
While many of us in Serge attempt to explain what Missionary Care means, there’s no replacement for hearing it directly from the people who are impacted most by the support YOU provide!
Here’s what they are saying –
“It’s been over 20 years that we have had the privilege of serving overseas. We’ve changed jobs and locations, but we’ve always wanted to stay with Serge. Why? They take care of their people!”
“The stateside staff in Missionary Care work tirelessly to support us from a distance. Whether in oversight, financial accountability, recruitment of new teammates, or working on personal and medical concerns – we’ve benefitted from their selfless efforts on our behalf over the years. This way of caring for field workers is attractive to those seeking God’s will in missions. It’s one reason why the Serge workforce has grown by 50% over the past five years.”
“It was because of Serge Missionary Care that our boys were able to transition so well from Ireland to the U. S. to continue education. They served us as an advocate like no other.”
“…we have experienced…help with human resource issues as well as health issues, a conference to encourage… and genuine care for our well-being from the core leadership.”
“I know they pray, and I know they care.”
“For me, being part of Serge is a huge part of keeping my life of ministry sustainable... I can tell you countless stories of how well-loved and supported I have been through this organization!”
“Serge walks with us and stands behind us as we minister the gospel overseas… They handle the logistics of giving, donors, tax receipts, and wire transfers. They provide counsel when conflict arises. And they produce gospel resources that help grow us and train us to lead others into a deeper understanding of the gospel. Missionary Care also provides vital support in recruiting more laborers, coordinating short-term teams and interns, and assessing potential new workers. And it would take an entire page to explain the amount of HR support we receive in connection to our health insurance, retirement planning, and the complicated tax situations we find ourselves in living overseas. We would not be as free to serve in our context without the faithful work of Missionary Care at Serge!”
“During my time serving in Bundibugyo, I have experienced Serge support me in the following ways: PRAYER; emotional, mental, and spiritual encouragement and guidance; friendship not only with those I serve with but with those who serve me from our Sending and Support Center; and welcoming me into the Serge family who truly lives like the family of Christ.”
“I would not be where I am today without Missionary Care! They check in on me, talk me through difficult situations, pray with me, and even walked with me through support raising!”
“We’ve been with Serge for 16 years and have experienced over and over practical Missionary Care and the inspiring, pastoral care of our leadership. Many times we have said that there’s no other organization we’d rather work with. This group that leads and takes care of us is a wise, sacrificial, grace-giving, humble, serving, and Jesus-exalting band of brothers and sisters. “
Because of the generosity of caring people like you, missionaries are supported. And that’s making a long-term difference in their lives and their work.
Will you consider a gift to Missionary Care? You’ll help provide the extra care a missionary needs to focus on sharing the love of Jesus.
