>I received an email yesterday from Christine, the East Africa Area Leader for PI Africa! She gave Mandie and me full approval to go!!!! It seemed a long time in coming, but hallelujah! 🙂 Now the only hurdle is to finish raising support.
God has already abundantly provided 100% of my departure needs and 57% of my monthly support! In physical numbers that translates to still needing $776/month. I am trusting the Lord to provide the rest!

Some of you have asked what percentage is used for administrative fees. 10% is deducted for administrative fees and 2% is deducted for international ministry. Also, here is some information on PIONEERS’ financial accountability:
Pioneers is a member of ECFA, an accreditation agency dedicated to helping Christian ministries earn the public’s trust through adherence to seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship. Founded in 1979, it is comprised of over 2,000 evangelical Christian organizations, which qualify for tax-exempt, nonprofit status and receive tax-deductible contributions to support their work.
Independent Audit Each year, Pioneers is audited by independent certified public accountants. Click on the link below to download the 2009 audit. Download 2009 Audit
ECFA’s Standards of Responsible Stewardship focus on board governance, financial transparency, integrity in fund-raising, and proper use of charity resources.
Pioneers is also a member of CrossGlobal Link, formerly IFMA. Not only are members trusted to be true to the Bible, to the gospel, and to the high moral and ethical demands of Scripture, membership with CrossGlobal Link ensures the highest standards of financial integrity.
