What Gives? A Primer on Relational Giving with ForAFriend.com’s Adam Riley

logo-0e0f7b5ee5854aed07b1817a358feaad

When a young man felt compelled to follow God’s calling to help buy cups of coffee for those in far-off lands seeking to know Christ, he prayed long and hard. The result of those prayers is ForAFriend.com. While that young man, Travis Graves is off teaching overseas, we’ve spent a little time with day-to-day operator of the site Adam Riley.

ForAFriend.com is a unique website that helps directly connect supporters with mission workers worldwide. It’s intuitively coded to showcase recent donations, and even help secure donations for missionaries that are in places where Christians are not welcome.

We speak with Adam about how the website works, what it’s doing to connect mission workers across the globe, and how relational giving can open doors to future goodwill.
