All too soon, but not soon enough I will be returning to the States for a break. Well, not really a break but for a time of fundraising. I am looking for different churches, small groups, sunday schools, to share in. God has done a lot in my life and the life of the church while I have been in Denmark. I have been asked to return to Denmark and continue working with the youth and coffee shop ministry here. I still need to raise $8,000 more to be able to work in Denmark another year. If you are interested in hearing about the work here please email me at email@example.com. Also, I can now receive donations online at katie fitch mission corp. Thank You for all the support!

We finally have an answer! The cafe team is now able to put a bid on the property that we would like to purchase. I am really excited!! Please continue to pray for us as we go through the paperwork process. Hopefully it will all pass smoothly.

Every time I try to start and write this blog, I get one sentence done and then never finish it. I guess it is because I feel like I keep writing the same thing over and over again. We are still waiting.........
Last week the cafe team met with the church board. We had a very long meeting discussing the building we found, how we all felt about the cafe work, and our understanding of the commitment of the ministry. It was a good conversation. And we walked away with the church boards full support.
But, it is the district that has to find a way for us to have extra money. Since the down payment for this property is much higher then we originally planned. So, we are waiting. The District will give us an answer about the funds in 2 weeks. It is a difficult situation because the churches on the District will take a big cut if they purchase this shop. So, they are discussing different options on how we can get the money needed.
And so we continue waiting and praying. Everyone is ready to go and ready to move forward. It is great to know that the church is behind us. But it is hard to have so many plans and to continue waiting.
