Brief Rundown

Hello All, I'm sorry it's been a while since I updated this blog. Things on the trip have picked up quite a bit in the past week or so. After putting together a list of every word in the Greek NT (5,393 words total) I am now working on narrowing down the list to only the words we need for a project we'll be researching in Thailand over Spring Break. It took about 3 days to finish the list itself, and now it's been a few more days that I've been working on it along with planning for writer's training with Kristy, helping with meals and cleanup, doing grocery shopping, doing school for the first night on Sunday night this week, and just trying to help in whatever way
possible.

Uncle Ross hasn't been feeling well the past weekend, but he seems a little better today. Please pr-y for him, if you think of it. Also, the Dennison family was supposed to arrive last Friday, but because their daughter Rachel had a seizure in Bangkok, they are not sure who all will be coming, so Birch is going to BKK today to stay there with them a week while they get things figured out and work there so that week is not lost entirely. In general news, I can't think of a lot
going on, I'm learning some Burmese songs on the cd I purchased from the B college, and I'm slowly starting to actually do some school (now that some lectures have become accessible) but it's slow going, and G-d is using that to keep me focused on why we're here first and foremost. I am not here to just be a student or just work on word lists, or just to do dishes. I am here to know my Savior better and to serve Chr-st with my all. Sometimes it's easy to forget that in
the rush and busy-ness of the day/night, but it's crucial that we remember this on our team, and invest in each other as much as/if not more than we do in anybody else. Well, I should get back to the word list, but I wanted to give a brief update on what's going on and how things are going. Pr-y for the team as a whole, this week has definitely started showing stress and pressure building from all sides, but it';s good for us to know our Lord better and to see how much we really trust Him when things blow up in our faces. We are very obviously here only by His grace, and sustained the
same.

G&P to the Family.

  1. so glad to hear what the one who saved (saves) us is teaching you! it's a struggle to invest in the people around us here, too, and to remember why we are really here.
