After five weeks of travel, presenting our project in seven churches and visiting family, we were glad to be back in our own beds. We are at almost 10% of our launch goal and we have over 10% of our monthly support (that we know of). It has been a week and a half since we returned, and we are still catching up on sleep. Once we got home, we caught fevers one after the other that thankfully lasted less than 48 hours each.

A prayer that was on my mind before our trip and during our trip was that out little ones would not be over taxed from hours in the car, and also that our car would hold up for the 4500 miles of travel. God blessed, and in other ways too, in that five weeks of travel we only had to buy three nights of hotel rooms. Gifts received before our trip also kept the monthly bills paid while we were away, too.

On our trip we spent one week at the JFA – MissionTV studio in McDonald, TN, where I gained some training in studio production and video editing. During that time we discussed the issues we would face in Thailand and we decided that it would be best to seek the Educational Visa and learn the Thai language. This is definitely important for missionaries and specifically so for our project in that we will be seeking native language speakers to put in front of the camera; speaking Thai will be necessary for networking, plus we will need to know what they are presenting. We also enjoyed spending quality time with our project administrators, Jon and Natalie Wood, and with all the GMI volunteers at the studio.

We want to thank all the churches for their hospitality and letting us present our project. We thank those that have supported us financially and we really appreciate all the prayers, too.
