Our home church, Grace Chapel, just donated a one-time gift of $5,000 to Lead Them Home. This is above the operational funding that they provide as a mission partner. It was only possible due to a rare mission budget surplus. If such a surplus ever happens again, other Grace Chapel mission partners will be next in line to receive a similar gift.
This gift is special because it has been designated for investment in my retirement account. Jeanette Yep, Pastor of Global and Regional Outreach, has cultivated a deep sensitivity for encouraging missionaries and their sending agencies to invest for retirement. Many missionaries who have served for decades have returned home with little to no retirement income. I am tremendously grateful for Jeanette and Grace Chapel and their commitment to care in this way.
Will You Help? We invite other churches and individuals to consider a one-time gift above your normal giving to help multiply the impact of Grace Chapel’s gift. Simply indicate “retirement” on an attached note and Lead Them Home will invest your gift accordingly. Thank you.
