AaM International uses NO monies from the sponsors’ donations for management. Not even postage or phone calls are deducted from sponsors’ donations.
Administrative cost for operating AaM International, including travel expenses are paid by the AaM staff and family members;
AaM International is probably the only, or one of the few fully (100% Volunteer) non-profit organizations in America.
AMI International is a faith-based ministry.
Today, there are over 300 unemployed Theology graduates that are under Adopt a Minister and most of them do NOT have sponsors. These ministers are unemployed because the local missions do not have the funds to employ them. Around 30 to 40 new graduates from our 5 SDA colleges/university are added every year to the total number of the unemployed. However, they have been encouraged to continue the Lord’s work because of the help that they receive from Adopt a Minister International. Several of them who were already doing secular work came back to work for the Lord under Adopt a Minister. We pray that we can find more sponsors so we can give the adopted ministers full monthly stipends! A few work for a small stipend ($30), or for a sack of rice per month. I also learned that many of them have left the ministry to find secular employment. I felt very badly but didn’t know what to do. A minister under the AaMI in the Philippines receives $130/month and $240/month in other countries. Since we all cannot preach, how about helping someone who can.
