As you read over this page, please prayerfully consider helping us reach our financial goals. Living in Scotland (especially in a big city) is expensive, and the British Pound (£) is much stronger than the US Dollar. We need your help to fund our ministry and our lives in Paisley!

Monthly Fees

The vast majority of our financial support goes to our monthly living expenses. Here's a couple examples of some of our costs:

  • Rent/utilities: $950

  • Groceries: $420

  • Cellphones/internet: $76

Combined with everything else (e.g. savings, hospitality, public transportation, etc.) our monthly budget tops out around:

  • TOTALS: $2845

Currently, however, we're living off of less than half that total amount. Please pray about helping us, as God may be calling you to make our calling happen!
