I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Matthew 28:18–20)
Most of you are aware that the way your missionaries’ support offerings are administered through Baptist Faith Missions is that they are not required to spend months or even years doing deputation work and raising their own support funds. When a sending church asks Baptist Faith Missions to help them support their missionary— and that missionary is approved for support— Baptist Faith Missions makes certain financial commitments to them to supply their living and ministry needs—always with the understanding that we will disburse those commitments “as the Lord supplies” the necessary funds.
All of those commitments are supplied from the GENERAL FUND. If the offerings are given to the General Fund, then we disburse those commitments to your missionaries. If the offerings are not given to the General Fund, then we don’t—we can’t—disburse what we do not receive.
When we don’t receive in General Fund offerings what we have committed to give the missionaries, then we reduce the amounts of those commitments by the same amounts we have not received.
It is really that simple—and that painful!
