Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Praise the Lord, we have already settled down again in Chiangrai after the Hong Kong and Bangkok trip. Mercy is the only person who adapted to the Hong Kong life the most and she was very excited to meet and talk to all the people in CANTONESE. The Lord is amazing.
But I did not feel well at all. The living pace seemed to be too fast for me. Anawin also felt that he was tired of walking too much. Praise the Lord, the trip was still a meaningful trip as we have attached with some churches which are mission-minded. We also networked some brothers and sisters whom cared us a lot. We have raised around 180K Thai Bahts in the trip. We family experienced the abundant love from the Lord.
Please remember us for the below items.
1. Praise the Lord, HE prepared a faithful architect and a building team for us. His progress is faster than planned and the building may finish even earlier. It also indicates that our fundraising time will be shorter too. We still trust that the Lord will provide and hope that the Lord will provide the rest for us.
2. Praise the Lord, we invited an old Akha pastor, to come to be our temporary pastor substituting for Lazarus's pastoral work. His name is Pastor Tu. He stays at nearby village and he can speak and teach Chinese and with passion to take care sick old people. But also he is old, a great communication gap and problem between him and Pastor Cairong. May the Lord protect and get them time to have better team work.
3. We feel grateful for the Lord to give us a second child. However the pregnancy this time is tougher than last time. I got a lot of discomfort such as vomiting, dizziness and sleepiness. These two weeks were worse and I could not do anything. Now I have entered the 11th week of pregnancy and pray that the Merciful Lord gives me grace to be able to have a more stable condition.
4. Praise the Lord, Anawin got chances to visit a Chinese doctor in Hong Kong and be able to do some treatments. But still need your prayers as he needs to do more housework and taking care of Mercy during my tough weeks and so he feels very tired. He even cannot sleep well at night. May the Lord help him to get better sleep and rest.
Let us have confidence then, and approach God's throne, where there is grace. There we will receive mercy and find grace to help us just when we need it. (Hebrews4:16)
