It’s the end of June 2012 and Simone and I have started an amazing journey. We don’t exactly know how it’s going to look, or how it will all work itself out, but we do know that we are willing to see what the future holds for us. Have I peaked your interest?
Our family is about to embark on a two-year missions adventure to Mae Sot, Thailand.
Last fall we were presented with an opportunity to take over the Hanson’s role with Imagine Thailand. At first we were not sure what we should do about this opportunity. After prayer and thought we felt like we were supposed to say yes and allow God to iron out the details. After all if He wants us to go, then He and only He can make it all come together.
At this point we are not sure exactly when we will be leaving, but we are hoping to go sometime in the fall (Oct-Nov.). We have begun making preparations and will begin our training next week.
In the meantime there is so much to do.
We are just finishing painting and cleaning of the house so we can put it up for sale. On top of all the painting and cleaning, we also have to start our fundraising.
Fundraising? Yes, we are going to Thailand as missionaries and as such have to raise the money we need to travel to Thailand as well as the finances that will allow us to live and minister to the Burmese refugees. It’s no small task to raise money, and the even harder part is having to ask people for help. I hate asking people for anything, but especially money. We have had to raise support before, when we went to Vancouver, but that was a different time and in a different economy. This time around it will be much more of an undertaking. We believe that if God has called us, and we are obedient, that He will provide.
All that being said here some the ask! Continue reading to see the ways you can help us out.
How Can You Help Us?
I know it sounds cliche, but it’s true! We need all the prayer we can get.
- Pray that we’re able to sell the house for a good price, without being greedy.
- Pray that we’re able to raise the funds we need to go.
- Pray for wisdom and guidance as we transition and while we’re in Thailand
