First, thank you for taking a moment to consider financially supporting me on the field for the 2018-2019 year. The Lord richly supplied all I needed last year, and I trust He will again do the same as people read how He is working in Ukraine. Additionally, on this page you can see the exact need I have and can specifically pray for all to be supplied.
Second, every gift and pledge is crucial. From parents and family, to friends and acquaintances, each gift ensures that a child receives the educational therapy they need in order to become successfully independent student in the classroom. Success in the classroom turns into a confident elementary, middle school, or high school person poised to continue as a flourishing adult.
Third, your gift assists missionaries already on the field in Kyiv. Since I teach in a missionary school, your commitment means that the tuition for those families is kept as low as possible, thereby making Christ-centered schooling possible. Further, since I work with special education students, parents enjoy an avenue of support otherwise unknown in Ukraine. (The closest school that offers the same services is located in Budapest, Hungary)
Think of it. Through your gifts, you are not only helping the student involved in therapy, but you are encouraging, refreshing, and answering the prayers of missionaries already on the field.
I wish I could communicate to your supporters and family what a blessing you have been to the students at KCA, including my own. Thank you for serving the missionaries in Kyiv. Without teachers like you, many of us would not be able to remain on the mission field. ~ Andrew
You are someone who has immensely blessed our family. We are soooooo grateful for you!!! Two of our boys have grown so much as a direct result of their time spent with you. Thank you. ~ Lindsay
Finally, the needs of the 2018-2019 school year have increased from last year. At the top of the list are: relocating to an apartment close to the new building when it is complete, and the seminary courses I would like to take in the coming year.
If you have been receiving my monthly newsletters, you know that KCA is in the processes of building their own facility. (For decades, we have shared a building with the deaf boarding school.) We have outgrown the space and the Lord has made it possible for us to expand. As such, I will need to relocate this next year in order to keep commuting costs to a minimum. Rent is slightly higher in that part of the city and I need to raise a bit more to cover that difference.
Further, if the Lord permits, I would like to resume my Mdiv program at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary. Per year, a full credit load will run approximately $8000 (including books). On the docket this fall are: Hebrew I, Modern Church History, and New Testament Introduction.
Would you consider partnering with me so that I may stay in Kyiv?
How do you go about partnering in this work?
Using any of the following methods, you can give monthly or as you have ability.
- By far the most convenient and consistent method is Electronic Fund Transfer where your specified gift is withdrawn every month. You will need to fill out an EFT form for Resourcing Christian Education International and send it to the PO Box on the form. (click Electronic Fund Transfer above to print out the form)
- You may choose to write a Check, in which case you would send it in along with a Commitment Card that has all of my information. Important: If you write a check, it must be made out to Resourcing Christian Education International with my account number in the Memo; not my name. If you make the check out to me, RCE cannot accept it and you won’t be able to deduct it from your taxes.
- Account Number: 07926
- For a commitment card, click ‘Commitment Card’ in the above paragraph.
- You can also give through Credit Card via the Resourcing Christian Education website. Please note that an additional 3% service fee will be applied to your gift per the credit card company. (Please Note: That 3% fee comes out of my support budget each month.)
Thank you for your support and commitment to the people of Kyiv, Ukraine.
I can’t wait to being regularly sharing how the Lord is working in the school and through the churches there!
With all humble gratitude,
