Second Mile Projects are opportunities for financial giving to selected needs in mission work. The projects are selected by Missions Ministry Team staff based on needs presented by our fields of work. The projects might underwrite the cost of land purchase, building construction, social action needs, or other ministries. The projects vary in cost from $1,500 and above. Usually the designated recipient and the sponsoring presbytery are expected to share in raising the funds. These projects are promoted through the quarterly issue of the Missionary Messenger. Both, individuals and church groups are encouraged to contribute to these projects.
Featured Second Mile Project:
Missionary Cars Project
Missions Ministry Team, Project #34041
The Missions Ministry Team has new missionaries to Brazil, they just arrived. We plan to deploy new missionaries to Spain in early 2020. We are also working with another missionary couple that will deploy to Guatemala early in 2020. One of the benefits we provide new missionaries is a safe car. Sometimes they are new cars, but often they are good used cars. Our missionaries have to have a car in order to fulfill the church planting and ministry responsibilities that they have on the mission field. We are asking Cumberland Presbyterians to help us with this Second Mile offering. We know this is an ambitious project. At the same time, it reflects the exciting reality that we will be deploying three new missionary families within a twelve month period. As you prayerfully consider this Second Mile project please pray for these three families that will be using these cars: Rev. and Mrs. Josue Guerrero and daughter (Brazil), Rev. Wilson and Rev. Diana Lopez and two daughters (Spain), and a missionary couple we are not ready to announce by name at this time (Guatemala).
