I attend an IFB Church so I thought this question was appropriate here. What is the function of the IFB mission board? When the Churches send in support for the missionary, does any of this money get kept by the mission board? The reason I ask is because we got a disturbing letter from one of the mission boards. The missionary we support through this mission board is in the Philippines and we want to make sure he is getting the financial support.The mission board said they were $700.00 in the hole each month and if they didn't receive more money then the mission board would cease to exist.
