Patricia’s principle of action is not only to pay her own way but to give freely when ministering in countries other than those that are in the financial position to bless her and the work RWVM does , and to honour her in the ministry gifting and anointing that accompanies her. All students attending are encouraged to be involved in fundraising to help pay for the hospitality and outreach we extend to the local believers when we visit their country.
Other interested parties are also encouraged to get involved in fundraising/gifting to help RWVM pay for the extras so that we can afford to be a blessing to the believers and the unsaved.
Monies raised will be recognised and accounted for through named donations to PATREON. Money can be directly deposited into the RWVM account, and designated ‘India Gift’. All money given is accounted for by an external party on behalf of RWVM.
Once received a confirming email is sent from RWVM to you in your name.
A printed account is available at the end of each school, to all students and other interested parties who request it. Funds will be designated in the following order of priority:
- Lunch expenses for local believers at events we are hosting – Courses A). & B).
- Other related costs that may arise during ministry trip (at Patricia and Mary’s discretion).
- N.B. Only if monies raised allow for it: we hope to raise enough to cover the B) trip: i.e., all associated costs concerning the RWVM Evangelism Training in Kattappana:include, team travel, local-hotel accommodation expenses, food, and other related costs that may arise (at the team leader’s discretion). But, only if monies raised allow for it. This means students attending B) trip must carry enough money to cover it. Expected costs will be emailed once you have registered indicating your attendance.
- Thursday AM: Personal Evangelism Training/neighbour outreach in Kattappana – expenses: printing tracts and study booklets. Lunches are planned for the local believers and the Outreach Gospel Lunch at RWVM expense.
- Any money left over after the above needs are met is designated for the ongoing 2- college-student costs in India connected with Mary Read.
We love you.
Yours for the sake of the Gospel,
Patricia and Mary.
