Hello dear friends,
On Saturday we plan to leave South Carolina, and visit some friends & sponsors in both Alabama and Montana. The itinerary should take about 8-days, and we hope to have opportunities to tell folks about the “orphan rescue” ministry in Faithful Heart Foundation of Thailand. Shirley & I are looking forward to some good times with good people! “Then those who honored the LORD spoke with each other, and the LORD listened and heard them. The names of those who honored the LORD and respected him were written in his presence in a book to be remembered.” (Malachi 3:16)
Meanwhile, here are some more recent pictures from Thailand:
At Home of Comfort, the boys are raising ducks in one of the ponds. This provides some meat and eggs for the dorm.
“The birds nest beside the streams and sing among the branches of the trees.” (Psalm 104:12)
Johnathan looks pretty serious about the basket of eggs he collected before school. Many of these small projects are useful to teach the children basic “life-skills” and also develop confidence & discipline.
“Do your work in the fear of God; be dependable and honest in your duties.” (2 Chronicles 19:9)
Two of our young men are moving on into the next step of their Christian lives. On the left, Gawley, will soon begin a new job working at a tourist resort.
Bob, on the right, has graduated college and he is also about to begin his new job. Both of these fine young guys have been a blessing for our college dorm ministry.
“You are living a brand new kind of life that is continually learning more and more of what is right, and trying constantly to be more and more like Christ…” (Colossians 3:10)
Peter and Grit, from Home of Grace, were able to spend some time in a remote mountain village during school break. The only access (by foot or on motorcycle) is across this suspension bridge.
“He makes me sure-footed as a deer; he keeps me safe on the mountains.” (Psalm 18:33)
This is little Laura, from Home of Promise. I pray God will also bless us to sleep so peacefully during our travels.
“You will not be afraid when you go to bed, and you will sleep soundly through the night.” (Proverbs 3:24)
For all of you who pray for the Faithful Heart children—You have our deep appreciation and the devoted prayers of the families.
May God bless you and keep you and shine His face upon you.
