Photo Fundraiser

As independent missionaries, we are always aware of money coming in and money going out. For us, however, it is not a burden but a joy to see how the Lord provides for our family and how He calls others to partner with us and walk along side of us in this beautiful journey. If you feel led to help support us financially, one way you can do so is by purchasing one (or more) of the photos below. Each photo was carefully captured and created by Hodge, and each represents a part of this city that we love and have the privilege to live and work in.

How it works:

1. Each photo is a suggested minimum donation of $30 (with no maximum cap).

2. Choose a photo (or as many as you would like!) and take note of the photo number(s).

3. Fill out the form below.

4. Click on the donate button to make your donation with your paypal account or a debit or credit card.

5. Wait to receive your photo(s) in the mail!
