Ethnos360 missionaries and missionaries from most other sending organizations are often funded through the direct contributions from individuals and churches. This means there is not a general budget out there that equips or furnishes their homes and ministries. When a request is made on a missionary’s behalf for equipment, we will work with you to meet those needs. If you don’t know of a specific missionary or project needing support but want to give, we will work with you to find an appropriate missionary or project to get involved with.
- $1,815 for lighting up the village huts (a missionary’s neighbors) with single LED lights connected to very small solar panels. Another $600 went toward other light projects.
- $400 toward a missionary water purification system
- $1,500 for a missionary water system
- $15,000 to outfit a regional warehouse with spare components for PV Solar Electric Systems serving many missionaries
- $17,500 to expand Offgrid Tech office facilities
- $2,500 to equip a Brazilian national missionary with a solar electric system to power a laptop computer, simple fans and lights. We know of about 10 such Brazilian families needing assistance.
- Staff Needs. None of our staff are at the full level of recommended support as determined by Ethnos360. Any one of our team would appreciate your partnering with them as they assist other missionaries in being equipped to take the Gospel to the unreached. See our About Page and click “Give” below any staff photo to partner with that member financially.
All Christian ministry is a spiritual battle and so we ask for your prayers as we journey alongside you as co-workers in the faith.
Life for anyone involves challenges and spiritual conflict. However, your missionaries have unique situations that call for prayer:
Missionaries living in remote areas have the normal challenges of communicating eternal truths in a second or third language, the stresses of being away from extended family and conveniences of their homeland, etc. But additionally they become their own power, water and sanitation companies. In other words, anything technical, they have to handle it themselves. Oh wait, there’s no doctors around either! Pray for them. Those good at relationships, language and teaching may not be so good at technical things. The challenges are great.
We always encourage people to consider their possible role in mission service. Consider if God would want you involved in a support role with Offgrid Tech.
- Engineers and experts who will assist us (chemical, mechanical, hydraulic, biological and electrical). This would be a consulting role when needed.
- Machinist who would commit to manufacturing subcomponents, at cost or as a ministry.
- Skilled volunteers in equipment assembly, both here at our facility or at your facility.
