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.

percentage) which helps TEAM run their office in Wheaton, plus another
amount for the operation of the Chad field.
