- Include information about the area or people which will help the reader feel connected to the project.

Throughout the Bible the body of Christ has supported missionaries in this manner, be confident in the Lord’s provision. The missionaries typically worked as they went, so don’t rely on a support letter as the only means to fund your project. Find a means to add to your resources by other opportunities you create. The apostle Paul was a tent maker.
