Willkommen and Welcome to our Life Teen Missions fundraising page! We are the Taylors, the Mission Base family for the Germany Life Teen base in Süsterseel. We see our mission as one of reaching out to families and teens, and doing whatever we can to help bring families, teens, kids, anyone and everyone into a personal relationship with Jesus. Europe is going through a faith crises right now. Almost empty churches, hearts searching for Jesus, but not realizing it. We're trying to turn that around in our own little way.
We've been here a little over a year and a half. One of the most important things we have accomplished is integration into our German town. We are now part of the community, counted on for church doings, local gatherings. This is part of what made our recent Theology of the Body Bible study such a success that we are planning a repeat study in the fall! Chuck will also be a co-leader for the Süsterseel Confirmation program.
A huge part of what we have committed to for the following year involves travel to Aachen, Cologne, and Sittard (Netherlands) on a monthly basis for Night Fever and the ZMC- Sittard Club (pictures above) . Sittard is just five minutes away, but Aachen and Cologne are 1-2 hours away....and gas is $8.00 per gallon. We are going to have to begin using a van to get there because of the growing numbers of teens coming! One fill-up is over $100.00!
We would love for your family to join our family on this vital mission. We are here to be your hands and feet, to take action on your behalf in this mission to bring families and teens to God.
There are three practical ways to join this mission:
Please PRAY for us! The mission here won't always be easy and your prayers will be really appreciated
2) Consider donating to this mission by making a (monthly) online donation on this page or sending in a check. We are willing to give everything, but there is no way we can do that with your financial support to cover basic mission expenses. We are blessed. We have part-time jobs, home-centered jobs that provide for our living expenses. Our rent and utilities are donated through Saint Hubertus here in Süsterseel. Every single cent of your donation goes to the youth ministry in the form of Life Night snacks, taking teens to Night Fever or other church events, or to our annual U.S.trip. We are trying to raise 8,000 annually, or about $675 per month. Even the smallest amount helps. And....if you give up one Subway trip per month, that would be $5 per month you could invest in Europe's teens.
3) If you can't make a donation at this point, help us reach our goal by sharing this page on Facebook and Twitter! Or, even better, send an e-mail to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to our page!
We truly appreciate any support you can provide. It will benefit a great cause!
Thanks so much for your generosity! We'll keep you in our prayers!
