Dear Friends & Family,
We’re still here! I know that many of you thought we would be in Thailand by now - and so did we!
We are really thankful that more support has come in but we are still not quite where we need to be financially. Last month, we told you that we were almost there (which we are) but after a conversation with a fellow missionary, we went over our budget again and realized that we can’t make some of the cuts that we wanted to make without hurting ourselves in the long-run and possibly not having the money that we need for life and ministry in higher cost Bangkok. So, our latest update is this: We are still almost there and are praying hard that the needed additional support will come in within the next month or so. If we don’t return by mid-April, we will have to re-apply for visas for Sun, Joshua, & Caitlin - a $240 expense we’d rather not have. And this is besides the fact that we want to move to Bangkok and get settled in before the school term at Bangkok Bible Seminary (BBS) starts in August. Karl will be teaching “Intro to World Missions” to the students at BBS this fall.
