Example Support Letter

Dear [insert your friend’s name]

I would like to share about an exciting opportunity I’ve been given this summer. I have prayed and thought about it a lot and have decided to give my summer to God by serving Him on the mission field. From June 20 to August 1 [insert your team’s dates] I will be going on a mission trip to Europe [insert your team name] with Royal Servants. Royal Servants is described as a summer of service for a lifetime of ministry. It provides students a life-changing experience with God that drives what we know about God from our heads to our hearts. Royal Servants also exposes students to the world’s burning need for a Savior equips them to help meet that need and returns them home to be actively involved serving their church. While with Royal Servants I will have a chance to share the gospel and be intentionally discipled in so I may grow in my walk with God. I am excited. A summer in Europe will be an experience of a lifetime.

Royal Servants goes to many destinations, yet I felt led to go to Europe. For over 6 weeks we will dedicate our lives to serving others. First, we’ll work with a church in Great Britain, helping them reach their community. Then, we’ll visit 7 different countries throughout Europe. We will mostly be involved in “street ministry” using song, drama, puppets, and dance to attract a crowd and share the message of Christ. In every campground we stay in and every town we visit we’ll be able to share with hundreds of people.

Before I leave to go on this mission trip, there are 3 things I have to do. First, I must memorize an evangelistic tool (Connecting With God) to help me prepare spiritually and mentally for this amazing experience. Second, I need people who will be my prayer partners during training and the actual trip. By praying for me as I prepare to leave they will have a direct impact on my ministry. Prayer is vital to everything in life, and this trip is no exception. Third, I need to raise financial support. The cost of the trip is [insert trip cost] + domestic airfare. I intend to contribute as much as I can personally earn. However, I can’t do it alone. I am seeking financial supporters who will enable me to serve God on this trip.

Would you partner with me by being a prayer and/or financial supporter? I’m seeking 30 people who can give $100 each, however any gift is greatly appreciated. Would you pray about being one of those people? I will give you a phone call within 2 weeks to discuss this possibility.

I am looking forward to seeing how God will work in and through me to fulfill His purpose this summer. I also hope to grow closer to Him. Your support and/or prayer would mean a lot to me. Thank you for any way you feel God leading you to help. You will be with me as I travel to influence the lives of people. I will be sure to tell you of my experiences when I return. Thank you for taking the time to read this letter.

Your sister in Christ

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
