Challenges to Raising Support

There are five major challenges when raising support.

1. Laziness/Procrastination

The support won’t raise itself nor suddenly rain down from heaven like manna as nice as that would be. You need to press on work the plan and trust God for results. Pray for enthusiasm.

2. Fear

Remind yourself that it is a privilege to give potential supporters this opportunity. Set definite times to sit at the phone and dial. In the end you’ll find that the fear of making the call was far worse than actually talking to the person. Pray for courage.

3. Calling at bad times of the day

The best time to call business people is at home after supper 7:00-9:00 p.m.

4. Not knowing what to say

You should write down what you want to say to help you stay focused. You will get better the more you talk with people. So prepare practice and pray for clarity!

5. Not stating a definite amount

It’s important to tell them a specific amount you are asking for such as a one-time gift of $100. To say “Whatever the Lord leads ” will usually produce gifts of $15-$25. People respond to a challenge and a specific ask.

If anyone is thinking of Royal Servants you should do it for sure. So many people are famished for the truth, peace, and love of Christ. Not only can you see their life change but yours will as well. God will and can use you if you allow Him. So thank you Royal Servants and thank you Lord! – Evan

During this summer, I have fallen more deeply in love with God and have begun the life-long journey of getting to know him more. I am so thankful for the opportunity to be on a Royal Servant team this summer, and I am so excited to see how God uses this experience in the years to come. – Phoebe

My son went with Royal Servants to Sierra Leone Africa this summer. While in Africa he was able to share the gospel with people in cities and villages. I really appreciate this. Some trips are just work projects. Not with Royal Servants. The students are trained to share the gospel and have many chances to do so. My son grew spiritually, was able to deal with sin issues in his life, and grew in his confidence to share the gospel. I would strongly encourage anyone considering going on a trip with reign to send their child. It is not for the faint of heart, but it is for those who are looking for an experience that will help your child grow to be more like Christ. – Kevin

The Royal Servants program is time-tested and mother-approved!! We've sent two sons (ages 15 and 16) overseas with R.S. with faith in the Lord to protect and keep them under the watchful guidance of the Royal Servants staff. We have not been disappointed. No lost passports, no lost luggage, no lost boys!!! They came face-to-face with the lost world and came home with great appreciation for their blessings and a level of awareness that makes them even more responsible and faithful at home!! – Paula

I can highly recommend Royal Servants to anyone who might be considering sending their son or daughter. Royal Servants took a real personal interest in the safety, well being and spiritual growth of our daughter. God was so faithful to provide the needed funds, so quickly, through our generous and loving church family. Our daughter had only to pray and to ask. As parents, we said many times, "We feel so blessed that our daughter had this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! – Karen
