Personal Support, We are blessed to have my VA disability retirement so we do not need to raise all of our personal support. We need to raise $2800.00 per month to meet all of our obligations. we are just getting started so to date we have raised 0%.

Start up cost- We need $2500.00 to help cover some of the ministry startup costs. For example, the filing fee with the IRS for the 501c3 is $850.00 alone. We also need to purchase a laptop computer, financial software, office supplies ect.
Travel Cost-We have to raise 100% of our domestic and international travel expenses. This is a critical need as the majority of our work requires travel. We travel to visit & encourage our ministry partners and see firsthand what their needs are as well as making sure that the projects we are supporting are being done and the funds we are sending are being used as they should be used to glorify God and further His kingdom.
2011 Travel - For the rest of 2011 we will only have a few domestic travel needs. We estimate needing $1200.00.
2012 international travel- In January 2012 Jeff will be leading a team on a 2 week mission to Siliguri, India to conduct a 3 day E3 International conference with Pastor Rupak with Frontier Care Ministries. After the conference the team will visit other M28 ministry partners and FCM churches. The team will returns home, but Jeff will stay for 2-3 more weeks. 1 more week with Pastor Rupak then he will go to Katmandu, Nepal to connect with Pastor "H" from the GO Project Nepal. Together they will conduct several 1-2 day E3 leadership conferences in various mountain villages. The cost for all the travel (ground & air), food & lodging is $5000.00
2012 domestic travel-There will also be some domestic travel expense in 2012 associated with visiting pastors and churches in our E3 USA ministry work. We estimate needing $2500.00 for this.
Total estimated travel expenses through 2012 $8700.00
Our ministry partners needs- There are many needs but for now we will focus on 1, the;
2012 India E3 International Conference M28 and FCM will conduct an E3 Leadership Conference in Siliguri, India in January 2012. This will be a major 3 day conference.
The purpose of this E3 conference is to help our native ministry partner (Pastor Rupak Shankar, FCM) to encourage, educate & equip his ministry leadership to, more effectively disciple their flocks, further their knowledge and understanding of the bible & unifying the body by bringing the leadership of all their churches together.
This will be a joint conference teaching pastors, elders & lay leaders in their own sessions. Women, children and youth ministries each have their own sessions as well. We will have some sessions where we bring everyone together for a lesson or message that is suitable for all.
All expenses for the conference are paid by M28 Ministries so as not to take away from the limited resources our ministry partners have to share the Gospel. Some of the expenses include, travel to and from the event, food & lodging during event, for all those attending. Renting the facility to conduct the event. Bibles and other printed material (Sunday School & VBS) to help the attendees serve their flocks better. Lord willing we expect to have 200 people attend the conference so we need to raise $5000-$8000.
