It is a blessing to have our belongings arrive in Thailand

Praise The Lord! The Lord is good and provides for all of our needs! On Friday, our belongings arrived! We have been essentially living out of suitcases since the middle of August (3-1/2 months) and we really needed our other clothes, sandals (yes!), medications, toiletries, kitchen items, Anthony’s games, and many books and ministry items.

The children of our home church, College Heights UMC in Elizabethtown, Kentucky, created a precious banner for us to take to Thailand. Sherri promised that this banner would be the first item we would display in our house, so that is exactly what she did. The banner is now in our kitchen and it reminds us that we have a group of wonderful children who we are praying for and they are praying for us. Thank you, kids of College Heights. We love you!

On a somber note, we attended our first funeral in Thailand. It was at the rural church in Bauwin. It was good to see God’s people surrounding the grieving family and church family with love. God’s people are good people all over the world.

This next week we will be very busy. We will be meeting with our programming supervisor, Rev. Jong Sung Kim for a few days in Bangkok. Several missionaries from Southeast Asia will be there for this time of meeting together. Please pray for wisdom and discerning God’s path for the mission in Southeast Asia. We look forward to this time together.

We will also be purchasing bookshelves and office furniture and setting up our office at the church. God is good!
