When are we leaving and other FAQ'S

When do you guys leave?  The answer is about as clear as it the sky was this morning, blanketed in fog.  We don't know.  But we are getting closer!  We have to have enough money coming in on a consistent monthly basis before the mission will allow us to come.

How much money do you need? $5,000 in monthly support commitments.  This means we need people like yourself to say "I want to do something to change someone elses life", go to the website and decide what you can give.  $10/month or $200 ANY AMOUNT HELPS!

How much do you have so far? $2,600!  We are only $400/month away from our green light goal of $3,000.  Saying that we want to be as close to the $5,000 a month before we leave.

What exactly will you be doing down there? The short answer CHANGING LIVES.  How?

Mentoring
Encouraging
Loving
Training (so they can do for others what has been done for them.)

Hm, that makes an acronym-MELT...In a way we are melting down old patterns of behaviour to reveal a new way of life.

For more information about the people, the why's and the how's you can also visit the Bergens blog Bergens in Brazil or go to the website xingu.org where you can connect to all the missionaries blogs.

How will you use the money? 
50%-Living Expenses
50%-Outreach/projects

What about your house?  The plan is to rent our house as of May 1.  We leave for England on April 23, to visit family and friends and connect with some churches there.  We have people interested in renting it and we are hoping to have that confirmed soon!
