Dear Friends & Family,
Our home assignment in the United States is over and we are really thankful for the past 7 months of visiting churches, renewing relationships and forming new ones, and reacquainting ourselves and our kids with the U.S.
Our time in the States has been very busy but very good. We have been greatly encouraged when people have shown genuine interest in the work that we are doing in Thailand, and express their enthusiasm for what God is doing there. When we are in Thailand, we hear from folks back in the States only occasionally and don’t know how much our prayer letters are being read. For that reason, it has been great to discover that many people have been reading and praying. Thank you!
Our kids have enjoyed their time in the U.S. as well, having fun with the sights and sounds that America has to offer, and feeling comfortable interacting with people around them since (nearly) everyone speaks English. Their Thai ability is improving but they are totally native English speakers and love to understand others and express themselves. In fact, Joshua even got in on doing presentations at churches, talking about Thailand from a kid's perspective. If you'd like to watch his presentation (7 minutes), click here.
