Prayer Needs

  • Pray about joining our financial team or increasing your support as our family grows and we are needing to move to a new home (details below).
  • Several girls in Alyson's small group are struggling with committing their lives to Christ. These girls have lots of head knowledge, but are not sure their hearts are in it. Pray that God will use our small group time to captivate these girls' hearts.
  • Charlie is helping lead a service project in Portugal April 7-14th. Pray for travel, safety, and for opportunities for the kingdom of God to grow. 
  • For God to provide all the staff that is needed for the school and dorms to run next school year.

Spring Break Service Projects

Spring Break starts on Thursday! Over the next two weeks groups of students and adults are going to 9 different countries to serve in completing small construction projects, cross-cultural engagement, child care, and youth programs. This Friday Charlie will leave for Lisbon, Portugal for a service project. He will have a team of 8 students and 1 other staff member with him. They will be putting on an English/sports camp. Charlie's skills in balloon animals and face painting will be put to good use! Stories to follow.

High School Retreat

March started off with high school retreat in Lenk, Switzerland. This is a great time for small groups to spend extended time together building bonds and getting into deep questions about spiritual things. This year, Jessie and I both were able to attend retreat with our small group. We feel our girls are feeling more comfortable in our group and opening up to us about where they are spiritually. It was a busy weekend, but a great time to really focus on deepening our relationships with these girls! 

Other BFA Events

The third quarter of BFA was full with activities. Highlights included 
  • Our boys and girls basketball teams winning the DODS European Championships.
  • Impact day: a day of serving Kandern through community service projects. Charlie was in charge of a group of freshmen boys in painting at one of the local churches. Alyson's small group did yard work outside the Art Factory (a place in Kandern where many different outreach programs take place).
  • Language field trips
  • Honors Music Program in Prague: 20 students for choir or orchestra for 6 days of training and preforming with 9 other Christian International Schools.
  • The Talent Show: Jessie sang with one of our small group girls and they were the overall winners! We also had a small group girl win the solo/duet category.  

Future Plans

As many of you know we are expecting baby number 4 in August. What we were not expecting was being told we would have to move to a new house. This means our rent will increase by 600 Euros (about $640) a month. We have also been encouraged to increase our monthly support by another $500 to account for increasing cost of living with a larger family. So we basically need to raise an additional $1,000 a month of support. The most urgent part of this is the increased rent by July! Please pray about teaming up with us financially or increasing your support. We would love to skype or call people to answer any questions they have about our ministry. Any amount of monthly giving would help...$20 to $1,000 God uses each gift to impact students and their families!
