As we enter 2021, we are so grateful for all of the support that we have received in the past year. Your gifts have helped us to navigate these difficult times while providing the means for us to share the love of Jesus both online and in our local community. Thank you for hearing the call and providing for us!
While we are far from out of the woods with this pandemic, we are still moving forward with the gospel work that we are called to do. Currently we are back in the studio after a brief fitness facility lockdown creating new dances to share online and in local churches. As soon as shelters, retirement communities, schools and other outreach opportunities become available to us we will head back out! Our ministry partners are eager for us to return and we are so looking forward to the day when we can return to all of these important venues.
We are also at work pouring into the lives of the students in our school. As of February 1st we are returning to both online and in-person learning. While there are still heavy restrictions on what we can do in the studio, we are excited to have the opportunity to work with our students in person again. We will continue to teach online classes through the end of this school year and may continue doing so into the future. Currently we have active students in Africa, India, and Canada tuning in and participating in our ballet classes each week! Without this pandemic we may have never had this opportunity to reach students in other parts of the world!
During the upcoming months we need your continued financial and prayer support to see us through this season. Even with vaccines being approved, we do not anticipate a return to normal operations until sometime in the Fall. We will continue on but we need your support now more than ever. Our end of the year giving campaign helped to boost our emergency reserve but we still need around $1,500 per month in additional support to cover our base needs.
We ask that you prayerfully consider partnering with us in ministry during this season to ensure that we can continue to meet our obligations and share the name of Jesus in the year ahead through the arts!.
Grace & Peace,
Jeff & Larissa Bischoff
