We’re Thankful For:

  • A Restful Spring Break, long days full of walking, cooking, playing and watching Luci learn to talk. Truly a gift!
  • Senior Transition Day, which was a great opportunity for Timmy to share some thoughts with our seniors regarding entering the next chapters of their lives with hearts open to God’s work.
  • Excellent Supervisors for Timmy as he begins his counseling practicum next week, and prepares for his long-term internship with BFA’s Counseling Center, which will start in the fall.
  • Excited Students, who have returned from Spring Break well-rested and ready to tackle the bear of AP tests and May wrapping-up.

Please Be In Prayer For:

  • May Madness! The last few weeks of school here at BFA tend to be busy ones, full both of normal end-of-the-year activities and the added emotional pressure of goodbyes. Pray for students and staff, both the ones leaving this summer and the ones staying behind, and that the transition would be a smooth one for all.
  • BFA Building Project. Our year-long construction project, which will add a new floor and other updates to the Main Building, is drawing to a close. Pray that the process remains on-track as we prepare to move our Middle School from a neighboring village to our main Kandern campus in June.
  • Financial Support. We continue to pray for about $1200 more in monthly support to cover increased cost of living and hospitality aspects of our member care ministry here. If you’re interested in helping to support this aspect of our ministry, please visit our Getting Involved page or our online giving page with TeachBeyond.

We are ever more aware that our ministry here would be impossible without the encouragement and support we receive from afar. Please let us know if there are ways that we can be praying for you, or if you have any questions our life or ministry in Kandern.

Peace in Christ,

Timmy & Kristi Dahlstrom

  1. Hey – finally catching up on prayer letters on train to Stockholm. Praying for your requests, especially that you won’t fall off the May high speed train! One request- we head to St. Petersburg tomorrow to meet and minister to 4 colleagues. Pray that we would be super listeners to these people and to the Spirit!

    Not sure if you’ve seen my posts on Facebook, but we’ve just finished a 5 day seminar called Simply the Story, probably the absolute BEST technique for sharing the Good News, navigating divine appointments, and even using it with teens in or out of classroom that we’ve learned in almost 50 years of Christian life! Did you know that even among literate cultures as in the western world, 83% of people prefer to learn orally? And who doesn’t love a great story? So you learn to use little bites of Scripture accurately and help a person find the answer to their problem, much as Nathan did with David. When Timmy’s degree is finished (or sooner! 😉 , find one and GO! http://Www.simplythestory.org.

    Love you and hope we get to see you in Kandern in August! Laura
