Specific Ways You Can Help
There are several ways that you can help:
First, pray for our students. Most of them are in very difficult situations. They are giving up a lot to be in the Lord's ministry and your prayers are a great way to bless them.
Second, pray for our teachers. They feel called to go and teach these great students, but it is not a cakewalk. Pray for their physical health and protection as well as their spiritual health and protection.
Third, pray for the Advance leadership. Pray with us that we will have the discernment to know when and where the Lord is leading us to open new schools.
If the Lord leads you to go and teach, don't hesitate to go. He will provide for you to go and your experience and knowledge are certainly needed.
As with any mission work there are financial needs. Since we don't have any full-time employees, our work is cost effective. We ask for your personal gifts and also encourage you to talk to your church's mission team about supporting Advance. Presently we are raising support for the 25 schools in East Asia.
Here are some practical examples of things you can give:
-Pay the cost for one student $200
-Pay for a professor/pastor to teach in a school $3000
-Pay for one translator to go $1000
-Pay for the total costs for one class to graduate (20-25 students) $6,000
