Dear Friends & Family -

Lots of people are asking and you might be wondering:  What are my plans for next year? Well, I'm glad to say that I have been accepted to serve in a year-long internship with Love Thy Neighborhood (LTN), a ministry loves on people who are hurting in the inner-city of Louisville, KY. I am going to be living and serving with other Christian young adults that are in the same stages of life like me. Together with a local church, we’re committed to serving as urban missionaries to impact lives with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

After serving with LTN over the summer, I am now excited to return for an entire year!  LTN pairs each Team Member with an existing partner ministry to serve. During my next phase of service, I will be working with a Refugee and Immigrant ministry.  Here I will get to hear the stories of those who may have come to the United States under very difficult circumstances and are trying to find their way.  I am excited to get to relate to them as my own life story is that of an immigrant, and I have had my own experiences of navigating a new culture.  I am also hopeful to work with some children and get to assist with after-school tutoring and English language classes.

In addition to the 30 hours per week I will be at my service site, I will also spend 15 hours a week building relationships with my neighbors and then another 15 hours a week on personal spiritual growth, through the teachings and leadership of LTN. 

This internship will strengthen my faith in Christ while also growing my life skills and getting me ready for adulthood. LTN’s mission is to grow young adults into servant leaders. It will be a challenging, exhausting, enlightening year of my life that I look forward to sharing with you.

As a LTN  Team Member, my goal is to raise an additional $11,900 for 11 months of service to cover the cost of my monthly needs including housing, groceries, public transportation, training, curriculum, etc. This will also allow me to serve the ministry during my program.  

Anything you can commit will bring me closer to that goal and make this opportunity possible. I am looking for one-time gifts and also monthly support.  I can’t do this without you. I know the Lord has called me to LTN and I need your help. Not just finances, I also need your prayer support. If you want to receive my monthly newsletters let me know that as well. I will definitely need and appreciate that kind of support as this is a big step for me to take. Thank you for your support! I look forward to sharing more with you when my service begins!  I’m so excited for this chance to serve and learn over the next year.

Thank you and God bless,

Paulina Kroeze
