Andrew Carlson Japan

I've been blessed with the opportunity to go back to Japan for three years and teach English at Fukushima Bible Baptist Church.  This is the same church that has so selflessly accepted, loved, and included me as one of their own for the past five years.  I will be teaching three levels of English for kids and adults alike as a ministry of the church in hopes of sharing the love of Christ with those who do not know Him yet.  This excites me and makes me nervous all the same, but I have no doubt that it will be a transformational experience.  If you are on this page, you've likely received my letter and are already familiar with the financial situation of this three-year teaching position.  In addition to earning 1000 dollars a month from the English classes, I am in need of an extra 600 a month to make ends meet.  That amount times 36 months amounts to the number that you see on this GoFundMe page.  If you are willing and able to support me financially, I would be deeply grateful no matter the amount.  I apologize for not mentioning this in the letter that I sent you, but I am leaving the states on September 16th. Thanks for your endless love and support.
