What crazy times we live in!

Last month I was speaking in churches and some people were beginning to avoid shaking hands, and now, like many of you, we are at home watching a live stream of our church on Sundays. So far, we and our children are safe and healthy, and we pray for you too during this difficult time.

Even while following stay-at-home orders, our hearts are stirred as we think of "beyond", and we’re excited for what the future holds. Six years ago, our Alliance family prayed for us and sent us out to Thailand, and today we are asking you to send us, once again, to another "region beyond."

Just recently our field leadership and Thai church leadership appointed us to the region of Southern Thailand. This is the first time that the Thai Field (US) has sent a church-planting couple to Southern Thailand, and the first time our field will be working among Thai-Muslims. This minority group makes up 4 percent of the Thai population and is the least reached people group in Thailand. Out of the 7 million Muslims in Thailand less than 200 of them know Jesus.

After leaving Africa we never thought that we would be reaching out to Muslims again, especially after being assigned to Thailand, "the most Buddhist nation" on earth. But God had a plan to use our experience in Muslim ministry to reach the lost in Thailand.

Our departure date was set for July 1, but in an attempt to slow the spread of the virus, understandably, the Thai government has put a hold on religious worker visas. Please pray that our visa situation will be resolved so that we aren't delayed too long.

We have found three possible schools for our kids, but the tuitions are all over the education budget cap. Please pray that when we visit these schools (Lord-willing) in July that at least one school would be willing to give us a discount so that it is affordable.

Please pray as we pack up and prepare to return to the field, in the midst of so much uncertainty.

This has been a trying time for all. With many people out of work and churches meeting virtually, the Great Commission Fund has dropped.

We ask that you prayerfully consider supporting your Alliance missionaries who are around the world sharing the love of Jesus during this crisis, by giving to the GCF online. Your giving to the GCF will also help us to get back to Thailand so we can share the Good News with the least-reached people group in Thailand, the Thai-Muslims.
