Hello Friends,

Life is full as we continue to be “Mum and Dad” to these ten wonderful souls (9 teenagers and one 6 year old) who live under our roof. What a privilege to have this large family and to have cared for each one since infants. We find such great joy as we continue to teach, support and journey alongside these precious ones. Six of our kids are only a little more than one year away from completing their high school, so we realise life is about to make a BIG change. Please remember us in this season….

Paul is currently planning for and helping in a 6 week intensive with other elders from our region (He will be both participant and staff). He will be encouraging, empowering, equipping other leaders from around Asia in an Applied Practical Leadership Course (APLC). Leaders in Asia and beyond are crying out for help! How do we equip these leaders for growing ministry? How do we prepare them for going to where we are not?

The APLC (Applied Practical Leadership Course) will aim to provide a custom-made curriculum with multiple topics to address felt needs. Please pray for this intensive and exciting opportunity for so many leaders, June 30 – August 9, 2019 and especially for Paul and the other elders who are managing and steering this crucial training. 

Would you also please pray for Josiah and Garin, two of our boys, who used to live with us but are now out in their communities and growing up with others around them, that they will continue to make good life decisions. We are grateful that we are able to have regular contact.

We are more than grateful for your financial and prayer support, grateful to all of you for the many ways you partner with us in making a difference in the lives of so many. It takes a village…

Quan (centre, bottom row) who has served with us for 16 years has made the difficult decision to leave, as she wants to join her husband living in Australia with their son, Quinn. We will miss her so very much. She has been a dear friend for 20 years.

Thanks for standing with us in our work in Chiang Rai, Thailand.
Paul and Penny
