Grace Brethren International Missions is marking November 1, 2009, as a Day of Generosity. The special emphasis will help provide funding to help support the efforts of workers and missionaries sent by churches in countries other than the U.S.
The goal is to raise a one-time offering of $321,000 from Grace Brethren churches across the U.S. It will be used for national workers who are selected, trained, and sent by their local churches, the sponsoring churches are often unable to meet the entire financial needs of sending workers cross-culturally. Funds raised through the Day of Generosity will be distributed as grants to indigenous agencies.
