Hey From Thailand

Okay, so sorry we haven't gotten a chance to write in the last few weeks. We are trying to get this whole internet thing worked out. We found this sweet little internet place right down the road from our house and it only cost 50 cents an hour, but it's just hard to get here sometimes with a two year old. We will have internet at our house soon though, I believe!

So to all our precious friends and family back home, we are so sorry about the craziness of this hurricane season. We only get one real English channel on our tv here and that is Fox news, so we have been keeping up with the weather there and praying for you guys. It's like I want to be there to make sure you are all okay and give you love and encouragement. We are believing God with you that good will come out of this bad weather season. One of my favorite quotes of all times is The darkest night is just before the dawn, and that is exactly what I am believing over Louisiana right now. You sweet people of God are a bright light there right now. We Love You, We Love You, We Love You, We Do!!!!! I mean that, more than I can actually explain. 

Everything is going good on our end. We really like it here in Thailand. We have gotten settled into a nice house, made some new friends, and have been really enjoying the new ministry we are becoming a part of. Our biggest challenge here so far is to keep our faith high. I was reading in Psalm 78 today about how God was so angry at the Israelites because they had seen Him do so many amazing miracles, but they still said that there were things that God couldn't possibly do. Gabe and I just need a stillness in our spirits that we know, that we know, that we know that God has sent us here and will meet all our needs in abundance. We have some faith, but we are believing God to increase our faith to incredible levels. 

We are so excited about the ministry possibilities for our lives in this place. We see a need everywhere we look. I will go into more detail later, but I can just say now that these people REALLY need Jesus and they have no other way to know Him other than through us. 

Thank you our loved ones for your continued prayers and support. We just can't express how much it means to us. I am not being cliche, just telling the truth from my heart. WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!

Love always, Dawn
