Serving the Kingdom in Southeast Asia

Goodbye 2007, Hello Future

Looking back at 2007 we realize what a great year this has been for us. God has been so faithful to provide for our needs, our dreams and our future. Abi is an incredible joy. Our house/language helper Esther has been wonderful for our language and relationships. The Akha clinic has been a great ministry. Our relationship with Akha leaders throughout Northern Thailand has grown. But the most exciting thing is that God has given us a vision for serving the Akha in the near future.

Many of you have heard whisperings of future plans, and some of you have gotten the details. We still aren't ready to post the full vision of the projects before us, but want to let you know how to pray for us over the next few months.

We are about to team up with a dynamic Akha family to begin a project to help serve the spiritual, physical and educational needs of the 30,000 Akha people in the greater Mae Salong region.

This family will join us in Mae Salong in April once the father has finished his master's degree from Bangkok Bible Institute.

We are heading into this new season with excitement and trembling, and ask for you to partner with us in prayer for these specific needs:

1. Provision for staff salaries for the family who is joining us 2. Guidance in expanding relationships in these villages 3. Specific, step-by-step direction in meeting these ministry goals 4. Expansion in our language to meet the demands of ministry and relationship with this family and with the Akha people.

Thank you for your prayers, and for all of your support!
