Many Christians considering missionary service are more fearful of support raising than of being martyred on the mission field. Many, after having responded to God's call to missionary service, have struggled unsuccessfully to raise and maintain adequate support. However, thousands of others stand securely in God's provision, proving God over and over and finding Him faithful. "Friend Raising brings together God's plan for missions support with principles proven in the field. The book focuses on the practical pillars of lasting support raising: intimacy in relationships, interdependence, mutual love and sharing, bearing one another's burdens, generosity, communication, and prayer with promises. In a world swamped by fund-raising hype and gimmicks, Betty Barnett presents a refreshing biblical alternative based on relationship.

The bag is very durable and fits a lot of stuff. It can go overweight easily when checking it in on an airline. I like it a lot and would recommend it. Read full review
