It was difficult to say good bye to all the people we love so dearly, both at that church and in the community.  But we are excited about what God is doing.  Cindy and I met with Pastor Yai of the Seed Church in Cheng Thalay, asking him to help supply a pastor to take my place.  He supplied us with Pastor Levi, so the church now has a Thai pastor! This involved combining three cell groups with our church becoming an extension of the Seed Church.  The first Sunday after we left eight people were saved the next Sunday two more were saved!

Desaree and Cindy Dense (daughter in law) and grandson Colin and granddaugher Kadence at Silver Falls Oregon

We spent our first few days in Riverside, staying with our dear long time friend Dr. Marion Hammarlund. We got to visit a Good News Club held in a school with 45 students in attendance and taught by three of the school's teachers, very exciting!  We atteneded a CEF prayer meeting too.  We got to have dinner with our granddaughter and Ayden and her mother Stephanie.  We then spent four days with my parents in a time share suite and visited California Adventure and Knott's Berry Farm with Desaree's family.   We then traveled north to Ventura and stayed a day and half with Cindy's cousins Albert and Neysa and saw her other cousins and second cousins. Then on up to Medford, Oregon to spend a week with Justin, Desaree, Jacob, and Natalie. We also saw my Uncle David and cousins Shawn and Jeanette.  We got to have dinner with good friends and fellow missionaries Duke and Sunshine. They are doing well, but missing Thailand.   Then we went on up to Vancouver Washington to be with our son Nathan, Denise, Colin and Natalie.  We plan soon to see Cindy's Mom Norma and her sister Karen and Mark our brother in law. 

Teaching the Word in Thailand  

I am sad as the time of shepherding here draws to an end and we had to say our good byes.  On God's Word for Today radio program we answered questions from for the last two weeks. .Podcasts of the programs are at and  listed also on iTunes.  Sunday mornings at church we were studying 1 Timothy.  See  I will continue to work with Wanta in translating for
