Missionary Upholders Trust (MUT) was formed in the year 1993 as an off-shoot from Missionary Upholders Family (MUF).
The Missionary Upholder Family members associated with exceeding concern with missionaries that helped gain deeper understanding of the difficulties confronted by the missionaries - mental, emotional and physical. Though some of the needs were met by the organizations they represent, there were still many needs that were unmet during times of need. This impelled the birth of Missionary Upholders Trust.
The initial focus was on providing Calamity Relief to bereaved missionary families (IMPACT), Rest Houses and Medical Help.
Additional projects such as: Master health checkup (MHC), Love Your Brother (LYB), Scheme for Missions Linked to Evangelism (SMILE), Crisis Relief Support Scheme (Good Samaritan Fund), Missionary Kids Welfare (Assistance for Higher Education, Career guidance, counseling) and Retired Missionary Welfare (Shelter, Retreat and MARM) and Personal Development Program for missionaries and spouses have been included (Training). MUT is an umberalla body with 211 member mission covering about 21000 members. It is mostly managed by volunteers, which helps in keeping the operation and administrative expenses low.
