Exciting News!!!

Amanda Bressler on November 23, 2014

Hello from limbo! Many of you know that I have been unsure of a date for heading to Togo. Well, in God's perfect timing, I am leaving in May of 2015!!!! Plane tickets have not been purchased as of yet, but the families of the children I will be teaching met this past week and said that the best timing for them would be in May! There is another teacher, Megan, that will be heading back to the states for the summer, so I will be arriving shortly before she leaves. All 3 teachers will have some time together and then I will be there for the summer with Kelli, the other teacher. I will be tutoring some students and getting them ready for the fall as well as getting the school building ready!!! Construction has already begun, but we hope it will be completed by fall of 2015. I also was emailing another family that will be returning to Togo around the same time as me, and we are hoping to coordinate flights! I would love to travel with them and get to know them a little better as they are one of the families that will be attending the new school! They have 4 children, one of whom will be around 8 months old when we travel! I hope to be of some help to them as we travel! Please pray that it will all work out! :)  Please pray also for continued fundraising. I have enough for travel and expenses for a year, but the goal is to stay for at least 2 years. Please pray that God will give me wisdom as I speak with churches and individuals. I have already shared with 2 churches and have had several conversations with other churches. Please pray that God will open those doors so I can share the amazing things He is doing there in Mango! If you would like me to share with your church, small group, or even kids group, please let me know! My email is abressler07@aol.com. Also, continue praying for French studies! Because of my later departure time, I also can continue with my French Bible study in January and continue practicing here. God really does have our best interests at heart, and He knows the perfect time for things to fall into place! 

Thanks for your prayers!
