How To Write Great Missionary Support Letters

Episode 207 - Aaron Babyar

For many missionaries, hearing the phrase “support letter” may cause some shudders, feelings of apathy, or some sense of annoyance. On the podcast, though, Aaron Babyar joins us for the third time to break those negative feelings and to remind us of how important partnerships are in ministry.

Also, he shares about different ways missionaries can build relationships with their partners. With technology constantly growing, there are even apps to send postcards around the world! So come and hear what Aaron has to say, and learn to see communication as a crucial part of ministry.
