Packing to move

PackingWe've been busy (especially Cindy) selling our things and packing.  We gave a lot to our neighbors and a lot to a thrift store..  We are going to be sending our books and many household goods in a shipping crate.  We are not shipping our furniture. We had to buy five new suitcases because of wear and water damage to our old ones. I have been doing a lot of job searching; I am hoping to pastor a church.  One of our friends asked if we are retiring.  The answer is definitely not.  We are coming back to be available to my parents should they need help and for our youngest son and his family, plus to be closer to the rest of our family.  Cindy is going to substitute teach or possibly get back in her old district full time.   We will be with Shepherd's Staff until the end of June at which time donations will be returned to the sender.  Pray we have jobs before then.  We will arrive in Riverside on March 14 and our family will joining us on the 18th.  That's also when our car will arrive from Medford, Oregon.  We then plan to travel to Oregon to spend more time with the rest of our family there and then return to Riverside mid April to continue the job search and find housing.


Teaching the Word in Thailand  

I am sad as the time of shepherding here draws to an end and we are starting to say our good byes.  On God's Word for Today radio program we will continue to answer questions from for the next two weeks. .Podcasts of the programs are at and  listed also on iTunes.  Sunday mornings at church we are studying 1 Timothy, and Wednesday nights we are studying the book of John.  See  Wanta and I are assisting Bob Prouty with Here's Life Australia to translate a study application he has made called First Steps into Thai. 

 Praise and Prayer Requests

Pray for a church pastor opening in Riverside county.

Pray that many will listen to the daily radio broadcast and the Holy Spirit will help them to understand.

Pray for the salvation of the people in our village and for the discipleship and maturity of the believers, equipping them for the work of the ministry.

Pray for all our children at church- pray for their continued spiritiual growth, their physical needs, and that their family members will come to faith.

Pray for  Cindy as she leads the worship at church and does so much in the house and in arranging shipping..

Pray for Ohn our church staff, that God will bless her ministry with us, help her with her health,and help her as she continues to do children's ministry and custodial for the church that will now be called The Seed Church.

Pray for the sale of my motorcycle.  The truck has been purchased on monthly payments by Pi Noy and will continue to be used for the church and the community.  She is also going to take our dog Gordon, so perhaps this help him in knowing where his new home is.

Pray for a teaching job for Cindy

Pray we can find low cost housing.  Pray for a place to stay March 14 -18 and the last few weeks of April.  

Pray for Global Media Outreach that many will come to faith and be discipled.

We are very thankful for those who support us each month.  Our expesnes will be high the next few months.  Shipping is $2,400, airfare $1300, then we will have first and last month's rent, furniture and major applicances. Please prayerfully consider monthly, or one-time giving.

May God receive all the glory for what He has done and is doing in Phuket and Phang Nga Thailand and beyond.
