Overview This book brings together God's plan for missions support with field-proven principles, focusing on intimacy in realtionships, bearing one another's burdens, and communication.
Publishers Description Many Christians considering missionary service are more fearful of support raising than of being martyred on the mission field. Many, after having responded to God's call to missionary service, have struggled unsuccessfully to raise and maintain adequate support. However, thousands of others stand securely in God's provision, proving God over and over and finding Him faithful. "Friend Raising brings together God's plan for missions support with principles proven in the field. The book focuses on the practical pillars of lasting support raising: intimacy in relationships, interdependence, mutual love and sharing, bearing one another's burdens, generosity, communication, and prayer with promises. In a world swamped by fund-raising hype and gimmicks, Betty Barnett presents a refreshing biblical alternative based on relationship.

Invaluable Jan 28, 2008
The concept of raising my own support is very scary; this book really gave me some practical advice and encouragement to get started.
very helpful Jun 19, 2007

great book Jan 27, 2006
I was recommended to read this, (borrowed it from a friend) to assist in my support-raising ... not even halfway through, i have already seen the truths of what she talks about, many of the points she makes are ones that I have had to learn already. Very much recommended for anyone starting out who needs some good advice or encouragement. I have bought my own copy of the book and plan to take it with me on the mission field for its reminders of God's promises, support-raising tips, and uplifting stories that confirm my own experiences. Get a copy for your church, yourself or any friends who rely on God's use of other people to supply for ministry expenses.

Thanks to Betty Barnett for her excellent book on personal support raising. Her emphasis on trusting God and building relationships with donors is right on. When raising support, it is all about sharing your vision and life, and Betty helps us understand how to do both. Thanks Betty!
