Diaper Grants for Missionaries
Diaper Grants for Missionaries is a practical way that we can support missionary families with small children. This program will provide a supplemental set of basic cloth diapers to a certain number of qualifying families every year.
The family must be able to show that they are actively involved in international missions work, have been overseas for a minimum of 12 months, have a sponsoring organization, pastoral recommendation, demonstrate need, and have one currently diapered child under six months old. Eligibility for a Diaper Grant starts after a baby is born.
Why Do We Do This?
We want to give in a practical way towards the ministries of people who are giving their life to strategically spread the gospel among the unreached. The Diaper Grant for Missionaries is a practical way that we can make a positive impact on a missionary family's life on an ongoing basis.
