If you need to raise funds for your mission trip to Moldova, here is how we suggest you get started.
1.Read Our E-book 10 Great Ways to Fundraise for Your Mission Trip. You can download it here
2. Send A Support Letter to everyone you know and ask them to send it to everyone they know. Remember to include a link in your emails and online posts to our “Give” page https://rfwma.org/give/ or to your personal fundraising page if you set one up so it’s very easy for those the Lord prompts to support your mission trip to give. We will send you updates on any donations that come in for your trip. Below is the support letter template we’ve written for the Moldova 2023 trip. It’s completely editable and you may use it however you’d like to get the word out about the opportunity you have to join this mission and how anyone who wants to can support in prayer and financially.
Dear Friends & Family,
Greetings! I pray that this letter finds you well. I am now (write the latest update on what is happening in your life).
God is doing wonderful things in my life! May 5-15, 2023 I have the opportunity to go on a mission trip to Republic of Moldova (former Soviet Union). Moldova is considered to be the poorest country in Europe and for over 70 years, the citizens there were forbidden to believe in Christ, own a Bible or attend a church. Today there is freedom for them – to believe, and for us (followers of Christ) – to share the Gospel.
I will travel with World Missions Alliance, a missionary organization that for the last 20 years has been spreading the Gospel in over 20 nations (most of them are considered the “hot spots” of the world). Their website is www.rfwma.org, if you would like to know more about the organization.
We will partner with the local Church in evangelistic outreach to the Ukrainian refugee families, medical clinic, children’s ministry, drug rehab outreach and Bible distribution.
Many, if not most, of the people in this area of the world have never owned a Bible and would not be able to afford one. It is an incredible privilege to be able to hand one out as a gift to someone who is desperate and would not have the TRUTH or HOPE unless someone were willing to give it to them
I am excited about this opportunity to fulfill the Great Commission, something I truly feel called to do and have dreamt about. I need to raise approximately $2800 ($1800 to cover all of my expenses in Moldova, such as interpreter services, ground transportation, food and lodging. The rest would be to buy an airplane ticket). I would also like to be able to purchase some Bibles for distribution.
Perhaps the Lord would place it on your heart to help – I will be very grateful for whatever you are able to give. I also know the Lord will bless and multiply your gift!
You can donate online at https://rfwma.org/give/ or make a check to World Missions Alliance and designate it to the “missionary support for (my name)”. You can mail it either to me or to World Missions Alliance directly to:
World Missions Alliance,
P.O. Box 1067
Branson West, MO 65737
You will receive a tax-deductible receipt from World Missions Alliance for your donation.
I thank you in advance for your prayers and your financial support.
May God bless you richly!
(Your Name Here)

Friends, I have been invited to join World Missions Alliance on an urgent and timely mission trip to Moldova May 5-15, 2023. Our mission is to partner with the local church to reach the most vulnerable and underprivileged segments of the population through evangelistic outreach and medical clinic ministry.
