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: My First Missions Conference

Larae Hoff Prayer Letter: My First Missions ConferenceI want to say “Thank you!” Thank you for praying for me; your prayers have meant a great deal. I am thankful for Christ answering your prayers. He blessed me with safe traveling mercies and answered a personal prayer request.

I started off September in Michigan. On September 5, I had the opportunity to visit a friend from college and share with the members and children’s church in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. The 12th of September was busy, as I shared my testimony in North Port, Florida, in the morning service and had the opportunity that evening to travel to Winter Haven, Florida, to visit a college friend and talk with many church members. The 19th of September, I was blessed to share my ministry and watch some people get baptized in Marion, North Carolina. September 24-29, I was honored to speak at my first Missions Conference in Longmont, Colorado; I also taught their children’s church. On October 3, I was able to share my testimony in Sunday school and talk with many retired African missionaries in Waynesville, North Carolina. That Wednesday, October 6, I shared my ministry in Willingboro, New Jersey. I continued my journey north and was in my home church on October 10. On October 21, I was blessed to go back to school. Hee-Hee! Yes, I shared about missions with the lower-elementary chapel at Bangor Christian Schools and then talked with the third- and sixth-grade students. The 24th of October, I enjoyed sharing my ministry in Levant, Maine, where I was able to see former Good News Club attendees and several familiar faces.

Unsaved family members—always a prayer request on every believer’s heart, but when the door of opportunity opens, you should walk through it and see where it will lead you. While in Florida, I prayed that weekend about seeing my family members; I wasn’t sure where their hearts were. On that Monday, the opportunity opened for a beginning conversation about the Gospel with my two teenage nieces, Ayana and Chelsea. On that Wednesday after visiting a “new to them” church, the opportunity opened again, and both of them trusted Christ as their Saviour. Please pray that Ayana and Chelsea will continue to grow as Christians.

I am staying in the New England area during the remainder of this fall and all of winter. On October 12, I started helping with the Good News Clubs. I am helping in the Hermon Middle School and Hampden Elementary Schools on Tuesdays. On November 12, I will also be helping with the monthly club in Corinth. Please pray that COVID-19 and other wintery health problems won’t prevent the children from coming.

I would like to ask you to join me in praying for my vehicle. When I left North Carolina, after doing car maintenance, my check engine light came on. I was able to message my mechanic in Maine, and we decided that it would be okay till I came home. After two stops at his shop, he told me that it would need a part, which isn’t in my price range. Will you pray that the mechanics have wisdom in solving this repair?

It has been a great joy to meet so many Christians during the beginning of my deputation journey, to hear their testimonies and to join them in visitation/evangelism. Please continue to pray that the doors will open for the right meetings to take place, as I continue seeking God for more support. Thank you for being a blessing!

In Christ,

Larae Hoff
