Partnering together to see these kids through….

Many of you have partnered with us since our kids were infants… so over the next year we plan to highlight/share the story of each of our kids, as most of them are in their mid to late teens, giving insight in how you can pray for us and them, as well as how you can support them in meeting their goals.  Our goal has always been to raise world changers. We are so very proud of them all. As we have looked to the future we realise ….. we need some extra support to see these kids through their university years and through to independence… most are so close!

We are more than grateful that you have partnered with us all these years, now more than ever, we invite you to see our kids through their final years of high school education and their university years. Some do not want to study at university but all are in the process of moving toward adulthood and finding their way…

Nui, pictured here, is 17 now. She joined our family when she was just one year old, in 2003. Now Nui has scored herself an internship (she doesn’t receive a wage) with a veterinarian clinic nearby where we live and she loves it. She takes herself on her scooter each day, 5 days a week, 9 hours a day. We are so proud of her. She hopes to continue to work as a vet assistant but a big piece of her heart goes out to vulnerable women and children in Thailand, who are at risk of being trafficked. Yes sadly, human trafficking is huge here… She is asking God about her future. We need you, more than ever, to stand with us to see her through to independence. Nui has a heart of gold, please pray for her and for us as we nurture her.

Our Thai staff partner with us to see our kids through. For example, when we have meetings or we travel to see our family, our precious granddaughters, Supun stays and sleeps in our house as ‘auntie’ caring for the needs of our kids, while mum and dad are away. She is an invaluable family member. She doesn’t usually live in with us but she is available for us, 8-4 Monday to Friday and she helps in a variety of ways from cooking, staying with kids while we attend meetings, shopping, cleaning, running errands, praying, etc. We need help to pay Supun’s wage each month. Our budget is short AUD$500 a month on what we need to pay her. Would you like to partner with us?

This is one way you can help us “see our kids through…”
