“Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”  – 2 Corinthians 9:7 ESV

I need financial supporters, as well as prayer partners.  Would you consider giving generously to build God’s kingdom in Ukraine?  You would be my partner–providing me vital support in the ministry God’s called me to here, and I would seek to encourage and equip you through my email updates and posts here on my website.

I moved to Kyiv on October 1st of 2012 with 100% of my budgeted support, either pledged monthly or already given as one-time gifts.  However, I’ve already had a monthly support loose a job and notify me that they may have to stop giving, so my need for new supporters remains constant.  If you have read my updates, and want to invest in my ministry, please consider giving monthly.

Email with your monthly pledge to my support account, #17138.

You can give tax-deductible donations by check, credit card at MTW’s website, or by electronic funds transfer directly from your bank account.

For non-tax-deductible personal gifts, you may mail a check to my US address, or give using PayPal, bitcoin: 1LTHodt9reuBXpH1qjgS7ix6S3MwZsWH3z, or litecoin: LNGwKK8AwZenVzQrQU266X1VVzpUmN4Y8Z.  Contact me if you have questions about any of those ways of sending gifts.

What’s a monthly pledge?

Your pledge simply tells me and MTW your intent to give once a month during my two years serving in Ukraine.  Your pledge isn’t a financially binding commitment, its simply pledging your intention to give.

How do you pledge monthly support?

The simplest way to pledge is to email with the amount of your monthly pledge for my support account #17138.

The simplest way to give monthly is with an electronic funds transfer to MTW.  Here’s the E-Giving Form, a safe, convenient, efficient way to have gifts electronically transferred from a bank account or credit card to MTW. Fill out and mail it to MTW at the address below to enroll.

Pledge/Prayer card – You can print out a copy or email me,, to request a copy by mail.  Once you have your pledge card, fill out the bottom and mail it to MTW at the address below to give.

One-time giving

The E-Giving Form link isn’t working for me.

Hi Erin, thanks for the head’s up about the broken link. I just fixed it, so you should be able to download the form now. If you have any other giving questions, MTW’s Giving FAQ is here:

I really enjoy reading on this website, it holds great articles. Don’t put too fine a point to your wit for fear it should get blunted. by Miguel de Cervantes.
