Information for Donations to Poured Out

Transitioning from Global Partners to Poured Out

Dear Partners in Ministry,

Heidi and I have been greatly encouraged by the response we received from the newsletter announcing that I will be joining Poured Out as one of their missionaries. God has been so faithful to provide all of our needs during our time of ministry in Haiti, and our trust in Him has only been strengthened by your messages and words of support. I was looking up the reference for a familiar verse that talks about God supplying our need when I came across these verses that so perfectly illustrate our partnership in ministry. Second Corinthians 9:9-11 says,

As it is written:

“They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor; their righteousness endures forever.”

Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.

Before we left for Haiti we challenged each of you to Pray, Give, and/or Go.

PRAY – current prayer needs

  • Our transition to Poured Out
  • Our family to get settled back into US life…a home, Haley back in public school, Heidi a job
  • Financial needs…getting to 100% funding for the year
  • The missionary team in Haiti and our Haitian brothers and sisters we worked with
  • Safety as we travel and minister in Haiti with mission teams and when disasters strike in the US
  • My training week in Michigan…February 10th – 14th

GIVE – (more options are coming)

We still need more churches and individuals/families who will support us on a monthly or yearly basis. There are currently two ways to make tax deductible donations to Poured Out for our support. Automatic monthly contributions can be set up through this option by checking the box that says “Make This Recurring (Monthly)” beside the online donation amount box.

Option 1: By Check

Checks written must have the following:
Please make checks out to: Poured Out, Inc.
In the ‘memo’ line, please write: Greg Edmonds

Checks can be mailed to our office at:

Poured Out, Inc.
6601 Imlay City Rd
Clyde, MI 48049

Option 2: Online (one-time or monthly)

Contributions made to support a missionary through PayPal. This can be done by clicking any of the “Help Now” buttons on Poured Out’s Website. In doing so, the donor will be directed to PayPal. People can also go directly to our Donation Page and click the “Help Now” button there.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Many people have questions as to how to specifically allocate their PayPal contribution to a missionary. Pictorial instructions can be found by visiting our PayPal Instructions Page. We highly recommend all donors check this page out before contributing in order to ensure a quick and easy process!

GO – several opportunities exist for you to volunteer

  • Haiti mission trips throughout the year
  • Disaster Relief trips following major disasters in the US (willing hands needed…no skills necessary)
  • Quick responders with specific skills – Class A CDL drivers, equipment operators, etc. These people would need to be available with very little notice to respond immediately with the initial Poured Out team to set up the relief site.

Please contact me if you have any questions, need more information, or would like to get your name on the volunteer list.
