We had a wonderful time teaching English. Brittney and I had 14 brilliant students. It was a joy to build relationships with them and serve them. We will miss them. Some said they are waiting for us to return.
Some ministers say that it would be nice to be a carpenter.. because at the end of a project you can see the result of all your labor. But with ministry many times it is not so. Brittney, Jo, and I shared the gospel with many people. Some we even had the opportunity to read through portions of the Bible with, some big and some small. Even though many were interested and others challenged, nobody at that time wanted to have Jesus as their Lord & Savior. We understand that we cannot change hearts. Only God has the power to take a person who naturally loves sin (all of us) and have them supernaturally hate it and love Him. God starts and finishes the work (Philippians 1:6). We are just happy to be apart of it, and I hope you are too.
So What's next?
Our next step is to go to the BMAA Mission Office in Little Rock, Arkansas to stand before the Advisory Committee in September. There we will present to them our visions and place of service. I have had some people ask if we are trying to learn Thai while we are in the states... No, not really. We are putting all of our efforts into our seminary studies and students at New Hope. Our priority is the ministry God has us in now.
Thank you SO much for your prayers, support, and love.
Here is a short clip we put together about our trip:
