Dear Friends & Family,
Greetings from bonnie Scotland! After a productive and busy summer, we are all back in Edinburgh and into the swing of life, school, and ministry. In this letter, we want to give you a brief overview of what we are doing, what’s coming up, and how to pray.
Back to School
Sun and the kids came back to Edinburgh in early August so that the children would be ready for the start of the Scottish school year on August 15th. Caitlin and John are now both in elementary school and Joshua is in 7th grade, the first year of high school in the Scottish system. They are all getting on well but it has been challenging to make friends so if you pray for them, you could remember the need for good friends.
Karl has also gone “back to school” as the new academic year has begun at the University of Edinburgh. However, since he was doing archival research most of the summer, it doesn’t feel like going “back” since he never really left his work during the summer. He returned from Payap University Archives in Thailand with a veritable mountain of photocopies, which he is now reading through, taking notes on, and adding to Evernote in order to organize his data and prepare for writing. In light of what he is learning, he is also revising his outline for the thesis, shuffling around information like a jigsaw puzzle to see how to best fit it all together. Please pray for clarity of mind, discipline of time, and dogged determination.
