How to Support Skye

gear_team_420Support.

This is us — we hold each other together in the body of Christ. Thank you for holding me up!

Pray for Me:

The number one thing you can do for me is to pray! Find out how at How to Pray for Skye or by clicking on the page link at the top of the screen. Each blog also includes several prayer requests for the things happening throughout the week, so check those out too.

Needs:

Updated June 26, 2017:

I have begun a new chapter in Taiwan in January 2017: a 2-year commitment to Envision: Taipei, which is in Aroma Church/Cafe in Taipei City, Taiwan, and I am seriously thinking of long-term missionary service. To find out more, see the About page that you can find at the top.

$ Needed/month: I am 90% fundraised, but because of budget changes, I need about $450/month to make my goal.

Here’s what I am raising money for:

6 Semesters of Mandarin language study (to complete my two-year time here in Taipei) (**This number may go down if I am accepted for a scholarship in the future); $5,800 total
1 Round-trip ticket to visit home for the holidays; approx. $896 total
1 One-way ticket home in January of 2019; approx $710 total
18 months of the National Health Insurance (which is dirt cheap here); $450 total
$612 dollars total of spending money for things like shoes, clothes, and other necessities, as well as fun/rest money

Here’s how this breaks down:

Total: $8,468 needed
Months remaining in Taiwan (with a departure date of Jan 18, 2019): 18 months
Total monthly need: $470/month for 18 months
Amazing Aunt and Uncle considered: $1,000 needed (Thank you Aunt Norma and Uncle Don!!)
Final Total Needed: $7,468 needed total; $414/month needed

 

What you can do:

10 people at $41/month gives me enough

16 people at $27/month gives me enough

21 people at $20/month gives me enough

41.1 people at $10/month gives me enough 😉

One-time gifts to sponsor any one of the above needs

 

Can you be one of my donors in any of these brackets? Thank you so very much for thinking and praying about it– I do not take it lightly! If you have questions, or would like to donate, please do not hesitate to message me on Facebook, email me at skyebird93@gmail.com, or if you have international minutes, my number is +866 976-236-591, and look for an email invitation to a Facebook live chat or Skype/video call in about a week’s time. I would love to be able to visit face to face, but as I am in Taiwan… 😉

Thank you to all my supporters, and the supporters of the Aroma Church and its missionaries, who have helped make photos like this a reality:

Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Let’s share the gospel together!

    1. Thank you, Mark and Yvette! I am looking forward to the blessings I don’t even know are in the waiting yet. Part of it is just being able to stop and spend time with God, too, so I hope I can do some growing in this season. Hope you are doing well!!
