Great things are happening! The Lord has brought in the finances necessary for both the TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) course and the plane ticket to Iowa, the two initial projects explained in past postings.

I will be taking the TEFL course October 9, 10, 16, 17, 23, 24 (changed from September) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I will be able to stay with my cousin and his wife and children in Durham while I take the course, which is certainly an extra blessing! I will then head to Iowa October 31-November 6 for the BILD International Summit.

Please pray that the Lord will grant my family and myself strength during the upcoming times of travel and study.

We are so excited that the Lord has opened these doors for us to move forward. We can't wait to share with you the next steps in this journey!

We covet your prayers!

Update of Praises

Praise the Lord for answers to prayer! I will indeed be heading to Iowa for the BILD International summit in November, as a good friend has graciously given the funds for the needed plane fare. We are also well on our way to be able to take the TEFL certification course in September. To date, $500 has been given, and we need $600 more to be able to pay for the course in full. Would you prayerfully consider giving to that project to reach the total of $1095? If you would like to give, please send a check to the below address and make sure to include "Jeff Darling - TEFL Course" on the memo line:

On another note, please continue to pray for Caryne's mom. Praise the Lord she is on the last leg of her chemotherapy treatments, and she seems to be recovering well. Please pray for renewed strength and health.

Thank you so much for your support!
