we tithe to our church, which in turn supports the missions that we've sent out (currently we support missions in Mexico (servant partners
), Morocco (wells for life
, India (no link, but it's an orphanage and a school for the children of temple prostitutes), Nicaragua (Vida Joven) and in our own backyard in Chester, PA (Delaware County Housing Coalition)
Beyond that, we give yearly to Doctors Without Borders, The Heifer Project, and the Red Cross. We've given often to Bethany also, as adoption is close to my heart since I'm adopted.
Non-monetarily, we work in Chester 3-4 times a year on neighborhood projects, my older boys and I have helped with local Christmas projects for group homes in our county, and have delivered toys/supplies to a few domestic shelters. We're planning to go on our church's mission trip to Mars Hill (appalachia) this summer (church goes every year, but we've always had tiny ones so not able to work) and I'm prayerfully considering going on a mission trip to Mexico next year.
