August Update: I Bought My Plane Ticket!

The Big Day Is Coming Soon!

I am excited to share that I bought my plane ticket and I will be leaving for Bolivia on September 25. I am thrilled to begin this new chapter in my life and I am thankful for all of the prayers and offerings that are making this mission a reality.

A big thank you to all of you who are partnering with me in this ministry! All of you remain in my prayers.

A New Ministry Opportunity

In addition to teaching English to college students, I recently learned that I will be teaching English to native Bolivian missionaries who are being sent out to the nations (India & Nepal). While Bolivia traditionally is a receiving nation, I am eager to play a small role in making it a sending nation too.

July Highlights

~ Visited the Clarkson and Reese life groups from The Bridge. It was a good time of fellowship and sharing about my upcoming ministry in Bolivia.

~ Got my yellow fever shot, so if I decide to go on a jungle safari, I’ll be safe from infected mosquitoes!

~ Finished the coursework for my Teaching English as a Foreign Language certificate. Now all I need to do is complete 9 more hours of practicum.

~ Shared about Bolivia with Lifesong church in Newbury Park.

Prayer Requests and Praises

~ When I arrive in Bolivia I will begin looking for a place to live. Ideally I’d love to live in a place that offers both social interaction and some privacy.

~ Please pray that when I arrive, I can start making connections with students who will be interested in learning English and that the Lord would like to draw to Himself.

~ Praise that my finances are coming together. I’ve raised about 82% for year one and I’d like to be as close to 100% by the time I leave.
