Southeast Asia / 04.03.2016

We are in Cambodia!  Since our Discipleship Training School (DTS) is ASEAN-themed (Association of Southeast Asian Nations), our school and nine others from ASEAN countries have come together in Battambang, Cambodia for four more weeks of teaching.  All the schools will have a “mini” two-week outreach in the middle of teaching as well.  At the end of this week our team will be doing our mini outreach in the province of Trat in southeastern Thailand. Cambodia is such a beautiful and colorful country.  There are certain similarities between Cambodia...

Thailand / 19.02.2016

The month of February has been busy and exciting as God is moving and surprising us in wonderful ways! He has been teaching us in our Discipleship Training School (DTS) through many speakers and topics that have been so stretching and beneficial in our walk with Christ. The Lord has also been moving mightily among the Loy people and this is what I am most excited about! A few weeks ago in prayer, the Lord showed me a picture of one of the Loy girls, who is about 14....

Bar Ministry, Thailand / 13.12.2014

Two weeks ago, Stephen’s mom and dad came to visit us here in Thailand!  My beautiful mother-in-law, Krystal, was able to come on bar outreach with Julie, Aum and myself.  I was so glad she could experience this ministry and this part of my life here in Thailand.  This is what I am most passionate about here, but it is often quite difficult to describe the situation of the women and the desperate need for the Kingdom of light to come to the bars.  I asked Krystal if...

Bar Ministry, Thailand / 13.11.2014

In the end of September, I had coffee with Brandon, a friend and leader, and he asked me if there was anything I wanted to be involved with that I wasn’t yet doing.  I thought back to my initial visit to Thailand and my first experience going on outreach in the red light district of Bangkok.  I thought of the women in the bars and brothels, each with her own story, her own dreams and aspirations.  This is what I wanted to be involved with.  I shared with...

Thailand / 30.07.2014

This week we are hosting a medical training here at our team house/base.  Dr. Simon, a British missionary, and his family travelled here from Cambodia. This is so exciting as he is teaching over 20 leaders who can take basic medical knowledge into their villages and help prevent so many sicknesses with simple diagnosis and treatments.  As they do this, they will also be able to share the Gospel with the people they see and help. In addition to the training, we also went into some of the communities and...

Southeast Asia, Thailand / 13.07.2014

Every Saturday morning, we pull into the parking lot of the Bible College here in Mae Sai, and every Saturday morning we are greeted in that parking lot by smiling, laughing and jumping Loy children.  They travel from neighborhoods around the area – some as far as two to three miles away.  We quickly unload the truck: craft boxes, Bible storybook, soccer ball, guitar, and mats to lay on the ground.  Some of the boys, smiling, grab the pump from the back of the truck and take it...

Wedding / 09.04.2013

Sunday, March 17th was Stephen and my 8-month anniversary. The day before he suggested we go on a sunrise date since we didn’t really celebrate the previous month and that day would be crazy with his brother-in-law’s birthday lunch and St. Patty’s celebrations later in the day.  He said he’d pick me up at 6:20 and text at 6:00 to make sure I was awake. So at promptly 5:46, he sent me a “Good morning! Are you awake?” text.  At 6:20, I went outside into the still dark...
