Donate to C.R.O.S.S.

_________________________________________________________________________

First of all, thank you for your generosity and your willingness to support our ministry to South Sudan. We are honored by the trust your gift demonstrates, and we are grateful for your commitment to God’s Word and its application to the lives of people in South Sudan.

February 24th, 2013 update: We are now starting our primary fundraising phase to raise the necessary material and finances to move to South Sudan and solidly establish C.R.O.S.S. Ministries. Please see this website and/or facebook shortly, 2013 for our projected budget. Please help us get to South Sudan quickly! Our goal is by the start of next dry season… that’s November of this year! Optimistic, but doable with God’s blessing and your support!

Your gift can help in many ways, and will go towards two main categories: one-time costs (and later special project costs) and monthly support. Initially all donations including pledged ongoing monthly support will go to the essential one-time costs associated with establishing C.R.O.S.S. staff (the Wood family) in South Sudan. Our goal is to support the Wood family (and possibly others in the future) in their ongoing effort to share the Word of God with the people of South Sudan, and once the Woods are established to minimize or eliminate any “administrative costs” (training, moving/shipping expenses, equipping, language training, transportation, etc) that will be necessary in the initial phase. That way all of your money will go to directly helping support the Wood family in helping the people of South Sudan.

Our Board of Accountability will annually provide a listing by category of yearly expenses, available upon request after the end of each year.

What about after your donation?

You will be sent a receipt and thank you note from us for your donation(s) so that you may use this in applying for tax deductions on your gifts.

 

Other Ways You Can Help:
