A couple of months ago, I wrote about our decision not to return to LCC International University this January, in order to continue assisting Corrie’s parents here in Pennsylvania. This semester, I have been working part-time as a contractor at ICON Clinical Research (my old job in the pharmaceutical industry) and teaching one course at Eastern University. I am pleased to be able to let you know about another opportunity to be involved with LCC’s mission, and to ask for your prayers and support.
LCC is planning to hire a full-time faculty member in Old Testament to be my replacement for Fall 2016. However, they need to offer an OT course this Spring semester. They have asked me to teach this course, Hebrew Wisdom and Poetry, online. This is a great way for us to stay involved in the important mission of LCC, and it fills a real need for the students who need to stay on track with their programs.
LCC’s funding model requires us to raise most of the funds I would receive as compensation for teaching. Because teaching the course requires foregoing income here, LCC is encouraging us to raise up to $3000 as one-time salary (which is pretty standard adjunct pay for a 3-credit course in North America). I will continue to work part-time at ICON and do projects for Corrie’s parents, so this will be a small supplement to that income.
If you would like to support this continuation of our ministry at LCC financially, you may contribute at www.lcc.lt/giving-north-america, or by sending a check to:
LCC International Fund, Inc.
P.O. Box 4851
San Dimas, California 91773
Be sure to indicate “Faculty Support – Giffone” in the memo of the check or the comments section of the online form.
We appreciate those of you who are praying for our family through this time of transition, tumult, and difficulty. God continues to be faithful.
