One More Brunch Reminder

Comments Off on One More Brunch Reminder

Our German Brunch and Update is coming up in a few days. We’ve been busy scoping out salami, cheese, mineral water, and trying to find the perfect breads (which actually don’t exist in Northwest Arkansas). We’re looking forward to sharing what God has done over the past few years in us, through our jobs, and in our relationships with students. We’re excited to share how God has worked through your support and prayer to work in the lives of Third Culture Kids.

If you’re planning to come and haven’t let us know yet, could you take a few minutes to RSVP? We’d hate to run short on butter or something.

Hope to see you Saturday!

German Brunch with Israel and Dani

Comments Off on German Brunch with Israel and Dani

So, we’d like to tell you about our past two years in Germany. We’d like to share some of the web and video work Israel’s done, tell you about the wonderful students we’ve grown to know and love, and share what God has done in our own lives. We’d like to thank you for your giving, prayers and friendship. We’re pretty sure that the only way to do this correctly is over a tasty Germany breakfast. Sound good to you?

Then join us for a German Brunch and Update!

Social Media in a Christian School

2 Comments »

So I’ve been creating, producing, brainstorming all with a focus towards combining high school education, a boarding program and Christian missions into the social media world. There’s been a steep learning curve. Everything from, “I never went to a public high school” to, “I now have management type responsibilities, and a budget.” Both have been strange for me to look back upon, and to see how I’ve failed and succeeded. So, if you will let me, I feel the need to share some of my thoughts from the past year.

Failures, and the One the Got Away

So I’ve been put in charge of the Communications at Black Forest Academy (BFA), which most of you likely already know. 😉 My role involves protecting and pursuing the “brand” of the school. But what I didn’t know this would mean is overseeing people as part of that.

We’re in America!

Comments Off on We’re in America!

Yes we are! We arrived in Arkansas on Saturday evening after an uneventful day of traveling. We had a wonderful Sunday, full of some of our favorite places and people. Now we’re busy trying to make ourselves busy. We’re hoping to fit in as many visits with friends and family as we can.

We’ve changed some travel dates!

We had to change around our Oklahoma dates, so here’s our updated travel scheduled.

  • Arkansas – June 11 to 16
  • Oklahoma – June 17 to 25 (Tulsa on the 22nd and 23rd)
  • Arkansas – June 26 to July 2
  • Chicago – July 3 to 9
  • Texas – July 10 to 17
  • Colorado – July 18 to 24 (Based out of Larkspur, but planning to spend a couple days in the Ft. Collins area)
  • Arkansas – July 25 to August 7
  • Germany? – August 8

If you’d like to get together, give us a call or send us an email right now! We have very little scheduled at this point, so we’re probably even available for last minute things.

This summer, we can be reached at israelanddani@teachbeyond.org and well as by phone. Israel’s number is 479-966-9381. My number is 479-301-0150.

How can you help?

We would love your prayers over the next few months as we raise support. It would be fabulous to have a group of people praying for us every day. Some things you can pray for are:

  • Our diligence in connecting with people and seeking out new supporters
  • Us to be patient, kind and loving toward each other
  • God to bring in our needed support ($2,300 a month) by August 7th
  • That we would be a blessing to the people we interact with

We have couple practical needs as well.

  • We need a car to use in Arkansas from July 25th until we leave on August 8th
  • We don’t have very many new contacts in the States; we have been living in Germany after all. It would be great to invite some new people to join our support team. If you happen to love hosting events and bringing people together, we could do a game or dessert get-together where we share our ministry with your peeps.

We’re looking forward to connecting with many of you over the next few months! See you soon. Continue reading
