Alright - first of all this is NOT a plea for help or a pity party. The Lord knows our needs and is well able and is faithful to provide. But, from a practical standpoint and member for many years of a mission's committee in the States I would like to examine an issue. Yesterday the euro hit another new record high against the dollar. It costs $1.45 to buy a euro yesterday. It was $1.24 in January. This means that the buying power of dollar support has dropped about 18% since the first of the year. I assume that the situation is the same all over the world. My question is this - what does a caring church do to help? When every one of your missionaries has in essence lost 18% of their support in the last 10 months how do you help? I know that on this side we notice the problem - but also know that our churches are full of caring people who are also aware. What is a church to do?
