Dear Friend, 

Through the years we have been blessed to host many wonderful people here in Thailand. It has been a joy to see how God works His plan through His people. Talents, gifting and many times simply availability and a willingness to work have been combined to help us literally touch the lives of tens of thousands of people in this nation. A hearty "Thank You" to all who have made the journey here to help us!


The Secret Is Out... Through the years as people have visited and joined with us in loving people and spreading the Gospel here in Thailand, we have heard a certain phrase way too many times. People have told us, "You have the best kept secret in Asia." This has always been spoken in reference to what people see when they visit our work in comparison to what they knew about the work before they came. We have always laughed a bit about this, but in 2013 we are determined to get the news out... it shouldn't be a secret any longer!

Look What the Lord Has Done... Sometimes on the journey of life
we work very hard to accomplish goals; our course is set and we work diligently to succeed. Much like climbing a mountain trail, we work, we press ourselves and we continue the journey upward. There comes a time when you stop to take a breather. It is usually at that time when you stand straight, take your eyes off the trail you have been climbing and turn around to take in the view while catching your breath. It is amazing to witness the elevation gained and the beautiful view. During the strenuous climb, you are unaware of what you achieved because all attention was on the climb. Ministry and life are much like that. There are times we need to stop and take a look at what the Lord has done!




Here's A Sneak Peak...Our team has been working hard at creating Snapshot Profiles on the amazing children in our program as well as the churches we have pioneered and constructed through the years. Our goal is to publish a different child's profile each month as well as an update profile on a church we have built. This will be in addition to our monthly partner letter sharing current news. We think you deserve to see what God has been doing in this nation through our combined efforts. Your partnership is helping us do amazing things! (The Profile Updates will begin in April)

Does Anyone Know Where Qatar Is... You might be hard pressed to find this tiny country on a map. A partner in Qatar responded to last months partner letter and funded the purchase of land for the new church plant in Umphang! It was one of those moments you realize God is God and He is orchestrating His Plan in the earth! We were able to purchase nearly an acre of land valued at close to $30,000 for only $6,000. Next step is the construction of a church facility at this district town. Because it is in the city limits, our cost is higher than usual. This facility will cost in the neighborhood of $18,000 to construct. The nearest church of any significant size is over 100 km away (60 miles). This is a strategic church plant; let us know if you would like to help with this opportunity.

Ready or Not Here They Come...The kids at the Ban Den Children's Home are moving out of the old location and onto the new property the first week of May. The project is not complete, but our deadline has arrived. We have the project to a point where the kids can at least move in to temporary quarters. We had $3,000 come in towards this project since last months letter; still $42,000 short to complete the project. Builders are ready as soon as funds become available.


Thank you for your prayer request, praise reports and notes of encouragement. We feel we are a part of you, your family and ministry. We thank you for being a part of our lives and ministry.


God Bless You Richly,


Charlie and Cathy
