After much deliberation and prayer, we have determined that while it is not in keeping with the Scriptures to solicit funds by prodding or manipulating God’s people, it is also not proper to hide the needs of others from our supporters. Therefore, it is within God’s will for us to share our missionary vision and specific work with other Christians and publish reports of God’s faithful dealings with us. This may be accomplished through the following means:
- Our Quarterly Magazine. The main purpose of the HeartCry magazine is to inform our supporters regarding the direction of our mission work, our stewardship, and the things that have been accomplished through their giving. We also seek to provide articles, reports, and testimonies from the field that will encourage the readers in their walk with God and in the work of the Great Commission. Sign up to receive our free magazine by going to our Magazine Sign-Up page.
- Our Website. The HeartCry website has much the same purpose as our magazine but with more detailed information and the greater flexibility of the internet. Please be sure to visit The Field on our website. It contains photos, videos, reports, and testimonies from many of the missionaries that HeartCry is privileged to serve around the world.
- Visiting Churches upon Request. We will not solicit churches or individuals for donations under any circumstance, but we will visit churches and other Christian gatherings (e.g.mission conferences) upon their request. Our presentation to any church or conference will always be in conformity to the requests of the leadership. Most often we are asked to make an oral presentation, with or without media, and to set up an information table. In our presentation, we will share our purpose, convictions, methodology, and present work; but we will never solicit funds.
- Answering Personal Inquiries. In the past, we declined to answer personal inquires from churches and individuals regarding the needs of HeartCry and our missionaries throughout the world. This was done in an attempt to trust only in the Lord and to avoid the temptation to seek the help of men. Although our conviction was admirable, it was not necessarily biblical, and it frustrated the attempts of many people to be involved in the work of missions. After great consideration, the searching of Scripture, and prayer, we have determined to answer all genuine inquiries from Christians who desire to pray or to give in a more informed way to HeartCry.
