Currently, the Gold Edition has the pdf Resource (over 13,000 words I think) plus a free Excel template to help you get organized. (It is also in Openoffice format as well).
The Platinum Edition, however also includes two important bonuses:
- Audio Modules.
- Case Studies.
We will discuss the Audio Modules now, and I’ll explain the Case Studies later.
What are the Audio Modules?
Well, I got tired of writing, so I thought I would record myself talking instead. Just kidding.
Here are the topics of the Audio Modules:
- How to Ask a Supporter to Give More.
- How to do a Missions Expo.
- How to do a Missions Presentation.
- How to Raise Lacking Support.
How to Ask a Supporter to Give More.
This is included because most missionaries often reach a place in their support level where they are almost fully funded, but then they get stuck.
How can they get that last 15% raised? “But I’ve tried everything, and I’m still stuck!”
Finishing that last leg can come from current supporters, but you have to know how to do it right. This Audio Module explains how to do it.
How to do a Missions Expo.
Sadly, I’ve discovered the hard way that a missions expo can be a total waste of time if done incorrectly. This audio module explains how to best connect with all those at the expo.
How to do a Missions Presentation.
This is a great add-on to what is in the pdf of BFFM. In the BFFM pdf you get all you need to present to a missions committee, but you will probably have other audiences that don’t/won’t/can’t support you – so how do you present to them?
How to Raise Lacking Support.
If you are not currently a fully funded missionary, that’s ok. I hope you haven’t gotten used to it, though. The reality is, for a variety of reasons, most missionaries will need to raise some lacking support. BFFM is the best resource on raising missionary support, so this topic must be addressed.
All of the audio is easily digestible, practical, and all together is about 24 minutes long. If you play it back faster, you won’t have to listen to my voice for as long!
Were there other topics you would want to see addressed?
