I saw an interesting CP (cooperative program) quote. Hence, this missionary support question: Do independent missionaries see that mailing costs cost as much money as the support? I.e., if the supporting church gives you $10 dollars per month, does it cost them and you $10 per month for mailing costs. . . I would expect that John or other missionaries would have real world experience. And yes, I suspect it might actually cost independents more 'administrative costs' in raising their support, but do 'administrative costs' come close to the actual dollar amount raised? Experience is great. And I look forward to hearing what you experienced. But if you could, I would prefer something that I could actually quote - like one would find in an article or book. Can I quote you?
