Thailand / 04.11.2014

We absolutely love the Loy children we have in our Kids Club every Saturday! We also want to make a point to show their parents and families that they are just as loved as their kids. We aren't able to do as much with the kids’ parents because of the extreme work schedules they all have, so we have been wanting to throw a party or do something special. A few weeks ago we had a DTS team from England working with us. It was refreshing for all of...

Thailand / 20.07.2014

We haven't written very frequently but starting now we are planning to write more regularly. I also figured out the email updates - so you should get an email when we post a new blog. If you don’t want that frequent of updates feel free to unsubscribe (you will still get the quarterly Updates). If you don’t get the blog updates and would like them, then let us know! We have officially been here for over 2 months! On one hand it seems like we have been here forever...

Thailand / 30.05.2014

So we have officially been in Mae Sai for 2 weeks! Crazy! Our Brazilian teammates left for Brazil for surgery within our first week here. It stinks to see them go, but was also excited to get to pray with them about what God might have for them while they are home. We just have to wait a few months and they will be back though (Angel is itching to speak more Portuguese with them)! We are still staying at Brandon and Aum's as we get the last few...

Thailand / 20.05.2014

We've officially been in Thailand for a week now! On the one hand it seems like we've been here forever, but on the other it feels like we just got here. The last few months in the States were a whirlwind and it is still hard to believe at times that we are actually in Thailand! We are currently staying with our friends Brandon and Aum as we continue to set up our new house (which is a 4 minute walk away). We have had a great introduction to Mae Sai...

Life, Thailand / 04.01.2014

Our very first Christmas together was so much fun! We spread Christmas over 3 days starting on Christmas Eve with Angela's mom, Christmas morning with my parents, and then Christmas evening and the next day near Nashville with Angela's dad and family. I have known we are moving to Thailand for awhile, but I haven't felt it until Christmas Day. We were playing games with my family when I realized we were late to skype JP (Angela's brother and my best friend) and then drive to Angela's dad's. So...

Life / 21.11.2013

It is a crazy time in our lives. We thought, "If we can just get through the wedding phase, then our lives will slow down and we can breathe." As we got ready to go to sleep last night we both talked about how exhausted we were and then how early it was! We're getting old! ; ) Between our relationship with each other (and adjusting to married life), our jobs, church, family and friends, and also planning for our big move to Thailand (and the support raising that...

Wedding / 05.11.2013

We're married!! I absolutely cannot believe that the hectic engagement chapter of our lives is over! Hallelujah! : ) In a few days we will have been married for two months! It seems crazy how quickly time has flown. (It is hard for me to not end every sentence of this post in an exclamation point so be proud of that last one) Our wedding was absolutely perfect. It was the perfect day. I can't begin to describe the huge gratitude we owe to our parents for all you did!...

Thailand / 08.06.2013

We were so happy to have our friends Brandon and Aum visit us in Chattanooga last month! I met and worked with Brandon and Aum in Bangkok when I first visited Thailand in 2010. They currently live in Mae Sai, Thailand, where I spent this past summer living with them and working with them and their new ministry. Angela and I both feel like God is directing us to work with them once we move to Thailand. Right now their ministry consists of just them and a Brazilian...
