Sample Mission Trip Support Letters

SAMPLE SUPPORT LETTER 1

(for a Praying Pelican team member)

Dear Friends and Family, 

I am excited to share with you the opportunity that God has given me. This summer, it has been placed on my heart to go on a mission trip to Belize, Central America, through Praying Pelican Missions. As God wills, I will be there June 18-25 serving. We will be ministering in Belize City and partnering with a local pastor who is eager for us to come and serve the members of his church and community. As we arrive, some of the ministries that were expressed as needs include construction for the church, hosting vacation Bible school, connecting with youth, church services, as well as evangelism to the community and visiting an orphanage to show love to the children who do not have families. 

I am excited to be a part of partnering with the local church to bring Christ’s love to the people of Belize, and I realize I will be blessed abundantly in return. However, as I know God is calling me to serve, I am relying on Him for strength and wisdom as I plan and raise financial support. I know all good things come from Him; for if it is His will, all will be provided. As I have now expressed my heart to you and desire to serve in Belize this summer, I know that I am not able to do it on my own. And as you feel called, I would be blessed if you would consider supporting me prayerfully and/or financially. 

The total cost of the trip is $1,200, which I need to raise by May 3. I am also seeking prayer partners to pray for our group, the ministries, safety, the people of Belize, and the trip as a whole each day throughout the trip. If it is your heart to be a prayer partner for us, I would feel overwhelmingly blessed; it takes all of us as the body of Christ. And if you feel God calling you to support me financially, please know that your gifts will be received as grace and will be used to serve those who are in need. These are tax-deductible donations, and if you would write “Praying Pelican Missions” in the memo, then the church will know that it is to help pay for me go. Then you can send it to me in the enclosed envelope with the bottom portion of this letter. Thank you for your support! I look forward to sharing with you about the preparations and the trip itself in the upcoming weeks/months, as well when I return. 

In Christ, 

Jane

SAMPLE SUPPORT LETTER 2 

Dear Family and Friends, 

Recently, a challenging and exciting opportunity was presented to me, and I’d like to share it with you. I feel called by the Lord to go to Belize, Central America, from June 18-25 with Praying Pelican Missions to share the love of Christ with kids, teenagers, and adults! I will be traveling with other students from my church, and I ask that you would pray for me and my team as we pursue this adventure that God has called us to. Belize is located on the southern portion of the Yucatan Peninsula, borders Mexico and Guatemala, and faces the Caribbean Sea to the east. 

This summer, our missions team will be reaching out to the local people of Belize by leading church services, building relationships through sports ministry, teaching vacation Bible school, helping with service projects, and engaging in evangelism. There are more than 280,000 people who reside in Belize, many of whom live in material poverty and more still who have never heard the message of hope through Jesus. But the local church is on the move and at work leading souls to Jesus. I can’t wait to serve alongside the local church and aide them in their outreach!

Each team member is responsible for raising a portion of the trip’s cost. The entire cost of the trip is $1,500/ person. If you would like to partner with me as I prepare to go to Belize, you can send a check to West Lakes Church. All contributions are tax deductible. But most importantly, I ask that you would pray for me and my team before and during our trip! 

God Bless, 

John
