We constantly need school supplies, teaching materials (in Spanish), medical supplies, dental supplies, first aid materials, medicines with current dates, toys, Bible Study helps for pastors, construction tools, and finances. It is cheaper many times to purchase in country rather than incurring the cost of shipping or paying for an extra bag.
LENDAHAND Mission Teams is not a fund raising agency. We believe that God supplies all needs. Our method of operation is simple. For a construction project, some family, individual, organization, church, or some business hears of the need. They respond by donating sufficient funds to cover the cost of building materials. That money is sent to the field missionary who purchases the building materials locally in country and has them delivered to site.
Volunteers who want to GO will pay their own way and go to build the sanctuary, parsonage, school, or orphanage. Therefore LENDAHAND does not directly solicit funds. However, if someone wants to donate directly to LENDAHAND for a project, the funds are utilized to the fullest where the donor designates. If you wish to build a facility in honor of, or memory of someone, you can contact us. There are many desperately need areas. Maybe your church would like to participate. Three churches joined together with LENDAHAND and constructed a sanctuary with the funds for a needy church in Guatemala.
Remember all donations are tax deductible. Also the funds that a volunteer gives for trip expenses are tax deductible.
