ange imes of Ch uring T Stability D es ncial Servic Fina by Doug Cunningham There is no doubt that many things have greatly changed in the last 50 years. While many things at BIMI have changed, one thing has always remained the same; the Finance Department's commitment to serve the missionaries. Computers and technology I'm so grateful for Doug have altered the methods we use, but the fervor of our service is Cunningham and the whole tax unchanged. Our commitment at the home office is to make the job team at BIMI. I'm pretty clue- of the missionaries as easy as possible by handling as much of their less when it comes to filing taxes from Tanzania. financial needs as possible. Lisa Newland—Tanzania The Accounts Receivable Department processes several hundred checks a day. Two full and one part time staff post more than 3 million dollars to our missionary accounts each month. We receipt donations from an average of 8,000 donors per month. During the course of the year, we receive donations from some 13,000 different donors. Each donor is given a receipt showing the amount of the gift as well as where the money was distributed. BIMI's Accounts Payable Department does much more than pay bills for the Mission. We also pay many invoices for the missionaries so they don't have to worry about bills getting lost in the mail or arriving late to their destinations. This takes a great burden off them so they can focus more on missions and less on finances. Missionary banking is also administered by our Accounts Payable Department. Many missionary checking accounts are set up locally to allow us to manage any problems that may arise. We also are able to transfer funds by wire to many missionaries. 26 On numerous occasions, Jackie Fuller has honored our requests for prompt financial transactions between our BIMI account and the bank.
