SERVING WITH TEAM GHANA

ABOUT

Birthday 6/30

I was born and raised in a Christian home. At age seven during Vacation Bible School, I asked Christ into my heart. When I turned thirteen, something happened to me which I blamed God for and started a path of rebellion. A few days later, I heard a message on a radio program saying that if you are not a Christian then you will go to Hell. That night I prayed “fire insurance prayers,” asking Christ to forgive me. However, I didn’t change physically or spiritually. I prayed those “fire insurance prayers” every night until my junior year of high school. At age sixteen, during a winter youth event, my pastor’s wife helped me get assurance of my salvation. I did a 180-degree turn and have never doubted since.

When I finished high school, I planned to work in the medical field. But when my pastor’s wife asked me to teach the 2-3 year old Sunday School class, it showed us both that I had a gift working with children. Through the years, I have been able to help with teaching Bible Clubs, counseling at Christian Camps, and working in various Church ministries.

When missionaries came to my church, I always enjoyed hearing their stories. Going on my first overseas mission trip in college made missions real to me, and it opened my heart with a desire to serve God full time overseas. Through the years God has opened and closed doors, allowing me many learning experiences in my Christian life. But the verses in Jeremiah 29:11 and Proverbs 16:9 have taught me that God’s plan and timing are perfect!

God has blessed me with the opportunity to serve with FBMI (Fundamental Baptist Missions International) in Kumasi, Ghana, West Africa and to help their team. My goal is to work with the village Churches and to help them start a children’s ministry. I am excited to see what God will do in and through me as I move forward to serve Him!

I would appreciate the opportunity to share with your congregation my goals, both short range and long range. I obviously am in need of financial support but even more than that I need to develop a prayer team that will support me on a regular basis. “Without Him, I can do nothing.” I need your prayers. Thank you for your time and consideration of my ministry.

Larae Hoff Prayer Letter: On the Road Again

Larae Hoff Prayer Letter: On the Road AgainI praise the Lord for His blessings at the beginning of this spring season. As I drive on the road, I’m reminded to be thankful for the promises that the Lord gives us every time it rains.

On February 19, I shared my testimony and a devotional with the King’s Daughters from my home church. On March 11, I had the opportunity to share my testimony with the Women’s Missionary Society in Winthrop, Maine. The Women’s Missionary Society (WMS) is a group of ladies that meet together and pray specifically for missionaries and the needs in their churches. On March 13, I was in Winterport, Maine, and was blessed to see their members again, as well as children from the Good News Club.

The Good News Club (GNC) is a Bible Club that is typically done in the public schools with the help of an organization called Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF). In Good News Club, we play games, have a snack, tell a missionary story, and teach a Bible lesson and a Bible verse. God has allowed me to help with the club in Hampden since 2015. Thirty-two children heard the Gospel either one time or came regularly at the Hampden Elementary School. Twelve middle schoolers were on the roster from Hermon, as we learned how to apply the Ten Commandments to everyday life. Twenty-six children came to the club in Corinth, where we learned about the temple. I am thankful that Christ provided helpers to fill in the gaps when I left the state of Maine.

I’m thankful for the Lord allowing Abby, a college student from my home church, to help me with my deputation video. She worked hard in between her classes and job.

In my last letter, I asked you to pray for my vehicle, as my “check engine light” was on. Well, it turns out that the light has a mind of its own, which comes off and on, but according to my mechanic, since it is not causing any issues while driving, my vehicle is okay. Praise the Lord for His protection on my Mitsubishi.

I started my out-of-state deputation again with a Missions Conference in Hammond, Indiana, on March 27. I was blessed with many opportunities. I shared my testimony with two Sunday school classes, shared about missions with students at City Baptist School, and talked with many members and college students.

Thank you for your prayers for more meetings to happen; my calendar is slowly filling up.

Praise

  • The Lord’s mighty protection
  • Decisions made during GNC

Prayer Requests

  • Wisdom while planning meetings
  • Safety on the road

In Christ,

Larae Hoff
