Hello from the McRaes! We greet you from the end of our school year, where we saw 7 students graduate from our 10 month School of Biblical Studies. It cannot be overstated what a joy and blessing this last year has been with this group of students, and we could not be more proud of their hard work and progress! Meet the class of ’21-22!
Our School of Biblical Studies is just one of four programs that we run to help people engage their Bibles in a meaningful way, regardless of what stage of life they may be in. And these students are just seven of many more individuals who have encountered and been transformed by the Bible in an impactful way through God’s work here at Emmaus. Thank you for your support and donations that have helped to make this happen!
And for those who may not have yet seen, we are trying to make shorter and more regular updates through our new Facebook page: facebook.com/themcraefam
Head on over and give it a Like to stay updated!
Right now, our staff are in the midst of some intense planning weeks as we look to next year’s school. With some students already accepted and others still in the application process, we’re very excited for what God will do next!
Our family will also be traveling from the start of June through mid-July to visit Alaska, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, where we will see family and speak to some of our support base. For those of you who fall in that category, we’re looking forward to seeing you soon!
How You Can Pray
The start of this summer is proving to be quite challenging! Not long after securing tickets for our summer travels, we learned that our current apartment’s rent will be increased by $500 (and this is following the $250 that it already increased last year). Because of this, we’ve been forced to try searching for new housing as we prepare to leave for our extensive summer travels. To make matters more difficult, since our current lease ends mid-August, we will only have about a month when we get back to secure our new housing and complete the moving process. We really need your prayers!
Part of our intention for these summer travels is to substantially increase our monthly income. Our work here with Emmaus is only possible through the generous donations of friends, family, and church communities. We’ll be speaking with churches and individuals throughout our travels in the hopes of growing this base of support. If one of our travel destinations brings us close to you and we haven’t already reached out, we’d love the chance to meet with you and tell you about our passion for this ministry!
- If you’re already a monthly supporter, would you consider increasing your giving?
- If you’re not a current financial supporter, would you consider signing up to give towards our mission, to help others know God through His Word?
