There are several resources that I have come across that have helped me a long the missionary trail. I am always getting asked for the services and resources that we use, so I thought I would pass these along. Here are some things we use and recommend:
Prayer Letters – A ministry called “CalvaryStand” prints and mails out our prayer letter every month.
Life Insurance – We were approved and have life insurance through Prudential.
Retirement – We invest for retirement (in Roth IRAs) using a Dave Ramsey E.L.P.
Emails – We use MailChimp for all our emailing campaigns.
Phone – We use Vonage to stay connected with family, friends and churches back in the States.
We use Bank of America for our banking needs. They work with a Chinese bank so that all ATM fees are reimbursed. Since I have to use an ATM here to pull my money out, which takes several trips to the ATM, this saves money in paying all the ATM fees.
VPN – We use ExpressVPN as our VPN to get access to blocked websites.
*These are things I actually use. Some of the links are referral links, meaning I will get something if you click on the link and sign up. Example: Free month of service.
