Our support requirement for service in Chad is $6,527 per month - about 9% increase over our support level last time we were on furlough in 2008. Our average support during 2010 was $5,749 per month, so we are needing to raise about $750 of additional monthly support while we are home. By the end of our home assignment in May 2011, we have seen about $500 this amount pledged.

Notes on the pie chart:
Salary - self explanatory - the number here is 90% of the amount TEAM allows for a couple without children. We get along fine on this amount.
Administration - a fixed amount (not a percentage) which helps TEAM run their office in Wheaton, plus another amount for the operation of the Chad field. 
Benefits - includes pension, health insurance, a housing allowance.
Ministry in Chad - includes airfare to/from Chad, travel within Chad, operation of the radio station, clinic, and translation salaries.
