Heading to Asia

Dear family & friends,

One week ago Lynette accepted a teaching role at an International school in Phnom Penh. This role puts us in position to return to Cambodia in July. We are set to depart on July 23rd from North Carolina. Just 15 days from now.

The teaching role is a paid position which helps with our financial deficit as well as school tuition costs for our two children (Rachel & Caleb). Although we have the green light from World Team to depart we are still short on monthly support by around $500 a month. We are trusting in the coming months this deficit will be overcome by more people and churches coming alongside of us through financial giving.

Now that we have a departure date we have much to do in a very short period of time….excitement is up but so is the stress level as we try to finalize the details of packing and saying goodbye to family and friends. We would appreciate your prayers during this time.

Since we’ve been gone from Asia for 14 months we will need to ‘start over’ in setting up a home. We have to find a new house to rent, buy furniture and restock the basic household items. Like newly weds we are walking in with very little. For those who would like to help with restocking the cabinets and buying beds and mattresses checks can be sent to 106 Ritter Drive, Castle Hayne, NC. 28429 before July 20th or gifts can be made directly to World Team through this link:https://us.worldteam.org/give/index We are also accepting one time gifts to help strengthen our ministry account which directly minister effectively as we begin our journey back to engage the lost of Asia with the gospel. The gifts can be given through the link above.

 

What can you be praying for:

1)That our last two weeks will be filled with good times w/ family and friends

2)Pray for James’ dad who just started a different type of chemo

3)More financial partners to join us in reaching the lost of Asia

4)That we find a good house to rent in Cambodia

Thanks to each of you for your ministry to us while we’ve been in the States. We are so grateful for the friendship.
