It is our hope with The Write Idea that missionaries (and even small mission organizations) could receive help to improve and refine their monthly/quarterly written communications (updates, newsletters, brochures, etc.).
As the practical areas of text editing, writing, and graphic design services are missing pieces of support for many on the mission field, those who have experience in any of these areas are encouraged to offer their assistance to those who serve.
Many serving in missions (especially non-native English speakers) can often have a hard time writing and putting together clear updates and other materials to share what God is doing in their context. Opportunities for encouragement and support can therefore be missed.
Volunteering to help support their work in this way can simply enable them to do what they do better.
AREA OF INTEREST: editing, writing, graphic design ACTION: editing or designing prayer letters, monthly updates, etc. for missionaries communicating with supporters. This effort could include:
checking grammar, re-writing sentences in text
assisting in setting up/designing layout for online email servers
ideally, a commitment for ongoing support is offered
WHO: this project would be done individually. CONNECTION: contact missionaries you know/support, or missionaries your church supports to see if they would benefit from this help. INTERACTION: as you engage in this process, it will be a gift to get to know the missionary/mission work in a deeper way.
