Praise the Lord we are still going strong!
The Lord is blessing in so many ways with so many opportunities. The Lord has been giving us such an unstoppable energy and we have been feeling so good we know it is a mix of doing what we are supposed to be doing and the Lord is letting us “soar on wings like eagles”
Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
We also know this is a result of our prayer supporters in the USA, China, and Thailand praying fervently for us. Thank you so much!
The above is where we have been doing some weekly discipleship with an influential Thai/Chinese business owner. We pray that this business owner will be able to use their position and influence to lead many locals in the community and their employees to Christ. They have 5 business locations in the city that I know of so there is great potential to be salt and light in this place that spiritually dark and blinded by Buddhism.
We also want to request prayer and help because the time is coming again. We will go next week to do a 1 month extension on our visa. We hope there is no problems and don’t expect there to be. However in 2 weeks we need to apply at a language school to prepare to get on a language visa. This takes 2 weeks to get approval from Bangkok and then we will need to go to Laos to attempt to get our visa’s. I will apply for a 3 month student visa and my wife will apply for a 3 month dependent visa. We hope and prayer there is no issues getting the visa or crossing the border during that time. Also another issue is that we were not expecting to have to go in this direction. What this means is that paying for the 1 year school tuition in order to get the visa, as well as having to each pay an additional extension fee every 90 days, and the cost for this coming visa run and visa puts us over our estimated costs for the year.
Would you pray about helping us make up for these unforeseen circumstances so we can continue our efforts and ministry service to the believers here and the lost? We are actively trying to pray about and look into other options to raise income through work or business that doesn’t take time away from ministry but will reduce the burden on our supporters. But right now we are calling on our trusted brothers and sisters to help out until the Lord gives us other streams to draw from. As you know we are a new ministry and we took a large step of faith to enter this position we are in now. We hope you will walk beside us for HIS glory!
In Jesus name!
