International Aid’s Missions Resource Center provides assistance to returning missionaries. IA’s Jan Wells said the Center served over five thousand missionaries last year. "Many times they're just overwhelmed with gratefulness. And we tell them that this is what God has provided for them. And many times we see tears." The store provides books, Bibles, medical, health supplies and clothing for the missionaries’ families. "Many times they tell us they've prayed specifically that they could find items that their family needs or things they are going to need for their ministry taking back overseas, and they're just overwhelmed."
