So Close!

As we begin the month of November, I'm already thankful for so many things. God has answered so much prayer, and in specific ways. My financial need in returning to Germany has been huge. Many have responded and given generously, and I want to say a huge thank you to everyone supporting me prayerfully and financially. I am humbled and encouraged by your partnership with me, and I pray for you daily. Not only is my percentage of support almost where it needs to be, my startup costs are completely covered. I am so excited to be able to leave and begin doing life in Germany!
I am also thankful for this time of waiting. I've shared more about this time in a previous blog post (10/25/14), but every day I thank the Lord for His perfect will and guidance.

Because of the amazingly generous giving of so many people, I am very close to being able to leave! Currently I only need $320 more per month until I reach 90%, and $580 more per month until I am 100% fully funded. Every amount matters at this point, so I want to invite you to partner with me. If you've been praying or thinking about the possibility of giving to missions, here's your chance. You can contact me at Laurenholland25@yahoo.com, or visit this link: https://give.teachbeyond.org and specify that it's for me. I am so close to reaching this goal! Please prayerfully consider what your part in this ministry could be!

As a quick refresher, here's a brief summary of what my ministry at Black Forest Academy will include:

  1. Teaching - private piano lessons, piano classes, various music classes, accompanying and coaching, and assisting in other ways in the music department.
  2. Mentoring - I hope to help lead a small group Bible study of students, and make the most of opportunities to speak into the lives of students. I also hope to help substitute in the dorms.
  3. Hospitality - I will seek to make my home and resources available to care for and minister to others, both in the BFA community and the German community. 
  4. Community - I have an ever-increasing burden for the German community surrounding BFA, and will be actively seeking opportunities to reach out and share the Gospel. This will involve a concerted effort to improve my German language skills!
Thank you for visiting my blog, and for your interest in my ministry! I look forward to sharing more answers to prayer very soon!
