Travel expenses for Germany

Hello Friends -

In 2012, I moved from Phoenix, Arizona to St Paul, Minnesota in order to complete my Master's degree at Luther Seminary. My goal is to serve as a chaplain (giving pastoral care to people in hospital and long-term care) - up here in the chilly Midwest.

Last fall, I received an award for tuition to study at the Goethe Institute in Germany - in May of this year. Goethe Institute is a German language school for people from other countries.

My intention is to improve my high school and college conversational German skills - so I can better serve the many German-speaking seniors and others who live in this part of the US.

*** This is where I need your help ***

Thankfully, my tuition for the 1-month intensive language program in Germany is already paid for by the German Lutheran Church. However, I need to come up with funds for airfare and living expenses. And yes, I need to book my plane ticket early enough to get a fair price.

*** Please help me fund the air travel and living expenses for my studies abroad this spring. Any amount you can (securely) donate gets me that much closer to fulfilling both my study plans - and my call to pastoral care. Thank you so very much! ***
