The biggest joy and privilege that we have is to interact with our Thai church and to encourage our Thai friends. It’s a great honor to be just 27 years old and be able to share God’s Word with our church!

Please be praying for them as they raise their support, work on paperwork, get lots of shots, and do all sorts of things to prepare to move and work overseas.
Sharon and her friends jumped into Mork-Fa Falls just the way they came: blue jeans, makeup, necklaces, cell phones and all. Yes, poor Kay forgot to leave her cell phone on the bank before taking the plunge. Here’s a picture of her face before she realized her awful mistake:
During the last few weeks of the semester, I had been thinking about doing a Bible study with some people from home. I was learning all of these things, getting excited about what God was teaching us, and Rhett and I were both looking forward to sharing these things with my friends from high school. My reasoning was, that if I had gone through high school never learning some of these cool truths, then OBVIOUSLY these things would be mysteries to my friends as well. (more…)
