After a very painful trip back (just imagine a very sick family with ear infections and 24 hours of travelling), we are finally back in Thailand and on the farm. Its always hard coming back. Hard to leave our friends and family. Hard to come back to a farm that has been in the hands of people who don't care about it as much as we do. Hard to come back to a land that has been stricken by drought and bush fires. But thankfully the rain has started and my hands and feet are dirty once again.
This month sees another boy move in with us. He and Lijoo start back at college next week. We had been praying the God would use our house to bless others, and finally that time has come. We are not sure how long we can support these boys financially - but at least they will have a good home close to their college and plenty of food. Thats more than a lot of kids get here. And we love (ok - sometimes HATE) living by faith. But we pray that we can teach these kids how much our Father loves them just by how He provides us our every day needs. He is kind. He is faithful. He is our provider.
Here are a few things we have been working on already:
1. Fixing the Solar powered electric fence for the goats (thanks gumtree for the second hand fencing)
Prayers specifically for:
1. ID's for our kids
2. Good crops and healthy animals
3. John and I to be able to love these kids as Jesus would
4. A reliable ute for the farm
5. Wisdom and faith
Keep your eyes on eternity and the kingdom. Its all for His Glory.
Love The Sops
