Dear Friends & Family,
We are very thankful for some good ministry times and a family vacation during the past couple months, even as we continue to meet up with friends and supporters and look ahead to Scotland. Here’s a brief round-up.

Northern California Trip
From the end of June to early July, we drove from Southern California to the San Francisco area to visit a supporting church, experience America, and see family and friends. We praise God for a good ministry weekend at Lord’s Grace Christian Church (Mountain View, CA) where Karl helped with short-term mission team training, preached, and shared about ministry in Thailand. Joshua got in on the action too with his first public speaking engagement, sharing with the Sunday school kids about life in Thailand from a kid’s perspective. Joshua liked sharing with the group and is now on the calendar to do the same with the kids at Grace Presbyterian Church (Yorba Linda, CA) on Sunday, Aug 13th.
On our Northern California trip, we also tried to see a bit of America since we’re not here for long. Both kids and parents enjoyed the Golden Gate bridge, giant redwood trees, a steam train ride, fishing, and hiking in Yosemite National Park. We were thankful for the chance to make some good family memories together.
