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: Spring Journey

Larae Hoff Prayer Letter: Spring JourneyPraise the Lord for seeing His handiwork in the beauties of spring. Thank you for your prayers and financial support while I continue my deputation.

I started March off in Palm Harbor, Florida, at a Missions Conference. I spoke about missions with the children’s class on Wednesday evening and about something that Florida and Ghana have in common—seashells—to the little ones in Sunday school. I was blessed to give an update and meet new members in New Port Richey. I continued in Florida by talking with the teen girls and sharing my video with the folks in Winter Park and talking with the children’s church in Quincy. I ended March by sharing about the ministry in Ghana with the members in Washington, Illinois.

I praise God for churches in Florida and Tennessee that gave recommendations so I could fix the brake problems on my vehicle. It has been wonderful to go out visiting and soul winning with many pastors’ wives and faithful church ladies.

I started April in Athens, Tennessee, and shared my testimony with their members. I had the privilege to speak about missions to the students at the Athens Public School Bible Club. Easter morning, I was blessed to go to a church with my sister-in-law in North Carolina. I was also blessed to be able to share an update at two supporting churches in Canton and Leicester and see new folks there. The following weekend, I was able to help on a bus route in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. I spoke with their teens in Sunday school and the children in Junior Church. In the evening, I talked with the adults about Ghana. At a Missions Conference, I shared about the ministry with the adults on Wednesday and spoke on Thursday with the children and teens in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. I concluded April in South Carolina. That Sunday, I was in Walterboro, where I talked with the young people in Sunday school about missions and shared my presentation in the evening. In Moncks Corner, I gave my testimony to their adults at prayer meeting.

Would you join me in praying that God would send me to the churches that He wants me to partner with. Thank you for your faithfulness.

In Christ,

Larae Hoff
