Birthday 6/30

I was born and raised in a Christian home. At age seven during Vacation Bible School, I asked Christ into my heart. When I turned thirteen, something happened to me which I blamed God for and started a path of rebellion. A few days later, I heard a message on a radio program saying that if you are not a Christian then you will go to Hell. That night I prayed “fire insurance prayers,” asking Christ to forgive me. However, I didn’t change physically or spiritually. I prayed those “fire insurance prayers” every night until my junior year of high school. At age sixteen, during a winter youth event, my pastor’s wife helped me get assurance of my salvation. I did a 180-degree turn and have never doubted since.

When I finished high school, I planned to work in the medical field. But when my pastor’s wife asked me to teach the 2-3 year old Sunday School class, it showed us both that I had a gift working with children. Through the years, I have been able to help with teaching Bible Clubs, counseling at Christian Camps, and working in various Church ministries.

When missionaries came to my church, I always enjoyed hearing their stories. Going on my first overseas mission trip in college made missions real to me, and it opened my heart with a desire to serve God full time overseas. Through the years God has opened and closed doors, allowing me many learning experiences in my Christian life. But the verses in Jeremiah 29:11 and Proverbs 16:9 have taught me that God’s plan and timing are perfect!

God has blessed me with the opportunity to serve with FBMI (Fundamental Baptist Missions International) in Kumasi, Ghana, West Africa and to help their team. My goal is to work with the village Churches and to help them start a children’s ministry. I am excited to see what God will do in and through me as I move forward to serve Him!

I would appreciate the opportunity to share with your congregation my goals, both short range and long range. I obviously am in need of financial support but even more than that I need to develop a prayer team that will support me on a regular basis. “Without Him, I can do nothing.” I need your prayers. Thank you for your time and consideration of my ministry.

Larae Hoff Prayer Letter: Letter from Bro. Jeremy Snipes

Larae Hoff Prayer Letter:  Letter from Bro. Jeremy SnipesWhat a privilege we have at FBMI to serve missionaries! Today, Dr. Mark Bosje, director of FBMI, and I had the wonderful opportunity to hold the preliminary exit interview for Missionary Larae Hoff. Thank you for allowing her to be a part of your church service while she has been on deputation.

As you know, Larae is planning to serve in the children’s ministries with Missionary Ted Speer in Ghana, West Africa. We believe that it would be very reasonable for her to leave in early August. If she were able to leave in early August, it would be good timing for her to be able to help in the Christian school starting in the fall, as there is a great need there for teachers.

As the FBMI Field Services Coordinator for Africa, I am asking that if you have already voted or promised to take her on for financial support that you consider starting to send support at this time. If you already support her, would you prayerfully consider increasing her support so she can get to the field? If you have not yet taken her on for support, she could really use a few more churches to get her to the field. We believe that she is a good eternal investment.

Also, if you are already supporting Larae, would you consider sending an additional love offering or love gift to help her with her transition from Maine to Ghana, as there will be airline expenses, setup costs, and other needs that she will have at this time?

We believe that God has exciting plans for her as she serves alongside Missionary Ted Speer there in Ghana. Thank you for your prayerful consideration of this request. May God continue to use you as you serve our Lord Jesus Christ!

For His glory,

Jeremy Snipes
FBMI Field Services Coordinator for Africa and Europe
