I know it’s been a while, so this will be a lengthy update.
Not many people know, however, prior to coming to Thailand I received my assignment from God and I made a promise to Him to do His will. I also promised not to do anything spontaneous until I knew what was really needed here and could be provided effectively to advance His Kingdom. I spent the next 3 years learning and integrating as much as I could in the Thai culture. While it has been extremely tight, we continue to see God’s faithfulness. God surprised me also by providing a spouse who is a Christian and passionate about missions as well.
After teaching in 7 different schools, for many people groups and age ranges, I now know for certain that education, in all aspects of life, is sorely needed. I taught in city schools, mountain village schools, rich children, poor children, private, public schools, Christian, and Buddhist schools.
So after MANY years of praying and seeking knowledge from my elders, I finally know what to do during this season of ministry.
To meet demands, my wife and I will be opening up a dorm.
Well, more like a room for now…
Currently we are teaching at a Christian private school operated by a South Korean church. This will be our 3rd year teaching there. To start off, we are considering having 2 students stay with us during the school semesters.
There are MANY children that are interested, but we are only able to take 2. We have an extra room in our home and we want to focus on just 2 children for now; with an emphasis on quality versus quantity. For many of you that know me, this is not a surprise. It may be a surprise that I took so long to do it, but I wanted to be sure; absolutely without a doubt to continue being in His will. My wife and I are sold out to do this a very long time, so time is not the issue. We are also newlyweds and want to do this right the first time. We get one beginning, so we better make it count and be effective for the Kingdom.
Now this is where you will be able to help. In the support section, there are various items that are needed before the next school term. We are allowing ourselves until February 28th to have everything purchased. The new school year starts mid-May. This will give us enough time for the items to ship, prepare the room, and have the parents see the final product of where their kids will be staying.
There will be more frequent posts in the future. Thank you for your patience with me and our ministry in Thailand. Please consider donating or buying an item from the store. Thank you and God bless.
