This week we got some not-such-great news in an email memo from our ReachGlobal Europe Division Business Manager. He informed us that our individual ministry account has dropped below the required family minimum. He indicated that we need to cease submitting expenses and take the initiative to decrease our salary as required.

How to Partner with Us
Thank you for considering partnering with us in ministry in Slovakia. There are two main ways you can become a member of our team. The first is to pray for us and the second is to contribute financially to our ministry.
Pray for Us
One of the key ways to be a part of our team is to pray for us and Slovakia on a regular basis. To best pray you can follow our activities by reading family and ministry news on our blog (also see the “News” link in the menu above).
In addition to following our latest news, you can better pray for us by understanding more about missions and especially missions in Slovakia and Europe. Here are some links to help
- Here is a list of books on missions (via Amazon).
- You can also find out more about other ReachGlobal ministries and ministry opportunities in Europe.
Support Our Ministry Financially
We’re thankful to all the churches and individuals who give so that we can serve in Slovakia. If you would like to become one of our financial partners then you can make a one time or regular contribution by Electronic Funds Transfer, by personal check or cash, or by credit card. Whenever you give, please remember to indicate your desire to contribute to the ministry of Todd and Jana Patterson in Slovakia, account 1314.
The EFCA ReachGlobal has a special page for learning how to connect with missionaries, including a link to a page on how to pray for missionaries and one on ways to care for missionaries.
Here’s a very helpful statement from the EFCA that helps to Understand Missionary Support
