Into a Butterfly

A Special 2018

I hope your 2018 is starting off on a happy note. Thank you for your faithful support and prayer. God's grace and provision administered through your support makes it possible for us to serve here for the 13th year in Thailand.

Infrared Budget

I dream small. I told my wife when we first came here that I'd be happy if we lasted five years in the mission field. It's ironic, however, that doing something as drastic as coming to the mission field, in retrospect, makes me feel like I withdrew into a cocoon. I like it here. I'm actually afraid to return, afraid that God might soon call us back to traditional ministry in the States. The Lord is my shepherd, so I'm willing to go wherever He calls.

It's just that our financial situation has been getting worse, not so much in the red as in the infrared! At least that's how it feels, hence my fundraising trip this spring, and also my fear that God might be telling us to return home to find a real job.

Please let me know if you know of potential donors that could help us to approach this sustainable level in the near future. I'm grateful for supporters that always try to patch things up for me; but I believe there's gotta be a better way to go about this than for me to keep crying, "Help!" My prayer is that 2018 can be a year of transformation, once The Charge is all set, to reinvent missions more suitable for the 21st century.

  3. Timothy will find a good summer job in the States.
