Update: We are now at 73%! That’s means we’ve raised $300 in four days.
With God’s help we can be at 80% this coming Sunday, August 5th. We’ve had a good surge and are praying that God will continue to bring people to us who love missions and what God is doing in the lives of the kids at BFA. We have a mission to bring God’s love to the kids at BFA.
Partner with us in loving missionary kids
What can you do to help us reach our goal?
Pray. We need to raise $1,340 more per-month. We would like to raise $340 more by this Sunday. You can also pray that our support comes in by August 15. God is faithful. Pray that we continue to seek him daily, and trust in him.
Practically, you can help us share what we are doing with people and churches. Share our videos and blog posts using social media like facebook and twitter. Friends, family, churches and small businesses are a great way for us to find new people and friends who would be interested in helping us with our mission. You can let us know about anyone, and we can contact them for you.
Summer Recap From Israel
So this summer has been very full. Let’s condense:
- Our car was in a small accident in Germany (a new driver was borrowing while we were away)
- We hosted a brunch for thanking and updating our current supporters (fun and exhausting)
- We traveled to 5 different states in the span of a month (via plane, but still tiring)
- We saw our family and friends while travelling (thank you all so much; we need you more than you know)
- We are now at 73% of our monthly budget (hurrah!)
- August brings with it many unknowns (eek! but excited to see what God has in store)

Right now, I’m sitting in an armchair at my Mom’s home in Telephone, Texas. In a few days, we’ll say goodbye to them for the last time before we move to Germany. I want to treasure these last few days with them, but I find my mind wandering back to Minnesota.
We spent the last seven days with about 35 other new staff at our sending organization’s orientation. It was amazing. We met some amazing new people—MKs, teachers, staff folks. We learned some amazing things—about Christian Education, living in another country, Third Culture Kids. In short, it was a wonderful time.
Since I’m finding it hard to put my thoughts into words, I’m just going to hit some of the highlights of the week.
