Both prayer and financial support are essential for our success in the mission field. Our time here in Nigeria continues to teach us how critical our prayer team at home is. They are our link to Camano Chapel and our prayer warriors lifting us up to the Lord.

Hillcrest School provides housing, a stipend that partially covers our living expenses, and reimbursement for some of our travel expenses, but we are in need of approximately $2000 per month in additional financial support. In the 5+ years we have been here, the cost of living has increased byabout 50% (!), and since Kimberly is now doing outside ministry, our stipend has decreased by about 1/3. We also encounter other one-time expenses, such as the process of getting to/from Nigeria and maintaining our living situation there (vehicle repair/maintenance needs, etc).

We ask you to prayerfully consider coming along side us in either capacity as we continue our ministry here through May 2015.

Please email us if you have additional questions, and /or so we can plan for our needs and/or add you to our support team. You can send a check directly to Camano Chapel (add “Payne Family” on the memo line), or click here to set up a one-time or regular online giving account.

Thank you!

Gary & Kimberly Payne

Gary — How’s the support level going? Under? Over? Just right? Keep me informed. Sounds like you’ve got lots of friends covering you in prayer…and that’s the most important (and needed) thing of all.
