$70 – Medical expenses (average treatment cost is $1.00 - $3.00)

$177 – Mission trips. We give each day $1.40 per person for food for overnight mission trips. Also included in this is the cost of candles for night services.

Team food and house supplies:
$725 – Food and house supplies (close estimate). Our core team consists of 8 adults and 7 children. We regularly feed and house visitors from the interior and locals as needed from our house supply funds. That averages out to $1.60 a day per person to cover, clothes, food, candles, soap etc. Really our team uses less than that per day because we also feed others every day.
