SBS, Training / 28.07.2016

If you have read our Summer Update then you know that Angela and I will be attending a School of Biblical Studies (SBS) in Montana starting in September! This was definitely out of left field for us at first, but when we felt God directing us to apply for the school, we prayed and prayed, felt His peace, and know this is the next step He has for us. We will be in Montana from September, 2016 until June, 2017 going through the whole Bible book by book....

DTS, Southeast Asia, Thailand / 02.04.2016

After two weeks of outreach in Thailand, we are back in Cambodia for the last two weeks of DTS lecture. This week’s topic has been on Evangelism and then next week we are having a group from Africa come to teach on how God calls all nations/people to reach all nations/people. This will be such a great time for our Thai students and all the other Southeast Asia students to see that God does not just call westerners to missions, but all people to fulfill the Great Commission....

Thailand / 02.01.2016

For Christmas this year we decided to throw a big family party for all of our Loy friends! We had only done one other Family Night (back in October 2014) and thought that Christmas was the perfect time to invite all the families of the kids who come to Kids Club every Saturday. As is the case anytime we get together and celebrate with our Loy friends, it was so much fun! They all loved seeing pictures and videos from this past year of Kids Club activities and Summer...

Family, Life, Thailand / 06.12.2015

It has been so long since we last updated everyone! We had a fantastic time in the States celebrating two weddings, teaching at church,  joining in on family vacations, catching up with good friends, and simply enjoying family dinners once again.

Family, Thailand / 11.08.2015

We are so excited to tell you all that Naam Pueng is doing great! The surgery was a success and she will have full motion in her arm! Thank you so much for all those that gave towards her surgery. After one of her check ups her parents invited us all over to their house for dinner to thank us. Her mom told us that she couldn't sleep many nights thinking, "How will we ever repay [our team] for helping pay for the surgery?" She told us that...

Thailand / 27.05.2015

Hi family and friends, We have a pretty unique situation that we would like to ask you all to pray about. About a month ago one of our girls from Kids Club, little 9 year old Naam Peung, fell off a ledge and broke her arm. When it happened they had a spirit doctor come and try to set it and they wrapped it in weird things they believed would heal it. When we saw her we prayed for her and told the family they should go to...

Thailand / 16.04.2015

This week Thailand celebrated Songkran, which is the Thai New Year. It is celebrated by three days of a nation-wide water fight! This is by far one of my favorite holidays and I love being in Thailand during this time! We had the privilege of being invited to eat with some of our Loy friends at their house on Tuesday morning. We had flower noodle soup, sunflower seeds, traditional Loy rice snacks and Coke & Fanta. Little did we know that this meal would become very familiar to us over...

Gungfu and Yii went to take their test last Wednesday and found out the results yesterday - they passed! Gungfu's mom cried when they all went to the school because she was so happy her son didn't have to go be a monk, but could continue to live with them and go to high school! The boys did great on the exam and were placed in the second classroom (Thailand places you in rooms depending on how well you test). Keep praying for Gam (the 3rd boy, and Yii's older...

Thailand / 29.03.2015

The past week has been incredible! We have been able to spend so much time visiting with our Loy friends. [caption id="attachment_931" align="alignright" width="300"] Monks dedicating the house[/caption] Monday our one of the families moved into a new house they built and we were invited to come help them and celebrate. I didn't realize we were walking into a Buddhist ceremony dedicating the house and "blessing" the family. It was eye-opening to be around but also great as we were able to pray and celebrate with our friends. So many people from...

Family, Thailand / 04.03.2015

It has been WAY too long since our last blog post. Hopefully you received our Winter Update though. Let us know if you didn't get it and we'll be sure to send it to you! We hit the ground running in 2015 and haven't stopped! January I went to Myanmar and then to a 2 week conference with YWAM. It was so encouraging to hear from YWAM's founders about the DNA of our mission. I was reminded about the importance of hearing God's voice and then obeying what He...
