Our son went a short term mission trip to Bourg D'Oisans, France(the Alps) summer of '96, 1999 he went back for a 9 month internship. Since that time he and his wife have done some deputation, but support has been hard to aquire. We're told it's due to 9/11, people are reluctant to give. They are with Greater European Missions, GEM wont allow them to go unless they have 3/4s of their targeted funds. They are discouraged, but they trust in the Lord. With terroism maybe God is keeping them in the states. Our son went to Bethany College of Missions in Bloomington, MN. for 4 years. He was exicted to go to the mission field in France. As I said God may be keeping them in the U.S. a reason, earlier this year he was hired by Compassion International as building a engineer at there headquaters in Colorado Springs, Co. Albeit, it's not actually want he wants, but God is in control. My Pastor told me that the Baptist Assoc. supports their missioinaries. Gerald, however is a member of Calvary Chapel so that is why they have to do deputation. Does anyone know of missionaries whom are finding support to come by ?
