They live on some charity, but that's what happens when you have to raise your own support for missionary work. I dont blame you for not wanting to live under the stress of heavydebt, but what I KNOW is true is that when you have less, you want for less, and can do with less. My friends may not have lived in the most attractive house or bought the newest fashions, but they have never been for want and they are the happiest people I know.
There's the great quote from Matthew:
“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
When you worry about less, you have less to worry about. As experienced in many peoples' lives, God comes through when the situation looks most dire. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. You wish to find someone with whom you can spend a Christian life. Don't worry about future money! You already have the finding to worry about.
