Let's Celebrate This 20th Anniversary Together
Exciting news! The year 2015 marks the 20th year since publishing my book, Designing a Woman's Life: Finding Your Purpose and Passion in Life.

Big or small, I can work with your group's resources.
BONUS: I'm writing six additional chapters and publishing them as a 20th anniversary supplement to the original book. The book, Bible study, and supplement will be available for purchase at your event.

Poland by Surprise!
Referring to missions work, a few years ago my sister asked me, "Where do you want to serve next in the world?"
I replied without hesitation, "Poland."
I can't imagine why I picked this country. Except I've served in Eastern Europe before and love the people. And I want to continue with missions trips.
A couple years passed, and I forgot this conversation. That is, until I met Grace Fox at a January retreat. Grace shared her passion for teaching English to children and adults in Eastern Europe as a conduit for sharing the Gospel. My soul stirred.
Did her organization, International Messengers, need help? Yes.
Does IM teach in Poland? Yes.
Now I'm registered to travel to Poland in late July so I can help teach English and share Christ with college students. Although overseas I usually teach publishing or women's groups, I'm eager to challenge myself with evangelism. But first, I'll attend training in Vancouver from June 5-7.
Although my life this year fills with resource challenges, I believe it's crucial for me to still serve others. And even if my funds look limited, I believe God can provide the money for me to serve in Poland. Every missions trip I've completed depended on raising funds, and He can usher in the financial resources again.
If you feel led, I'd be grateful if you could contribute to this important trip. The total budget is about $3,600, including the training weekend. You can contribute through check, money order, or airline miles for a full ticket.
All contributions are tax deductible. Checks can be mailed to International Messengers, P. O. Box 618, Clear Lake, IA 50428-0618. For a receipt, the check needs include your name and address. Attach a note stating this is a donation for my trip. (Please don't write this on the check.)
Thanks for considering this. Any amount will be helpful. I need to raise at least half the cost by early June. I would also appreciate your prayers.--Judith Couchman
