How You Can Help

As many of you know by now, it has been a time of great change in our family. Last fall, Katie and I started to pray more specifically about how and where God was leading us forward. After much thought and prayer, we have decided to transition back to living and working in the States. You can read more about our decision here.

On April 6th, we will move to Charleston, South Carolina. Both of us are looking forward to getting back in the classroom! Next fall, we will be teaching in elementary schools in Dorchester County, where Paul taught previously. After our move in April, each month will signify a new beginning: Paul will start graduate school in May for school administration, we will move into our home at the beginning of June, and we will begin our new teaching jobs in August!

As we prepare to embark on this significant transition, we have some needs that you can help meet. First, please PRAY for us as we wrap up our ministry work and prepare to say goodbye to our friends here in Romania. The ministry in Romania, especially the people we have had the privilege to serve beside, will always have a special place in our hearts, and leaving won't be easy. Our latest newsletter outlines some new ministry projects in Romania that you can also be praying about. Thank you for praying for us and for the ministry here.

Second, we have financial needs that include:
  • Moving costs like luggage fees and moving vehicles 
  • Other relocation expenses like a car, furniture, and appliances for our home
Our new full-time jobs won't begin until mid-August, so we are trusting that God will provide for us in the interim. If you can GIVE towards any of these needs, please consider making an online donation through the Teleios Ministry website and mark your gift for Paul and Katie Crook. As always, 100% of what you give comes directly to us, and all donations are tax-deductible.

Thank you again for your care, support, encouragement, and love!

Paul and Katie
