Going to Thailand

In addition to meeting Orm, our sponsored child, we will be visiting our friends. Almost three years ago we were introduced to the Eubank family. Dave, Karen and their three kids are missionaries with Free Burma Rangers. Originally from the pacific northwest and avid adventurers, we met up with them to hike when they were here visiting. We had such a great time getting to know them, and were hungry to know more about their mission in northern Thailand and Burma.

My husband kept in touch with Dave throughout the year and the following summer we met up with them for another hike in Washington. Our friendship grew and we began dreaming of the day when we could go visit them in Thailand and see the work they are involved in.

Then again last summer, we had the honor and privilege of spending another day with them here in Oregon.

Dave and Karen are amazing people. Because of their work, they know what it's like to depend on God in any and every situation. In fact, when you are in conversation with Dave, if something comes up that is prayer worthy, he will just stop the conversation and PRAY - right then and there.

So this really is our tie and our pull to go to Thailand. It just so happens that we also sponsor a child in northern Thailand and we'll get to meet her.

Dave has connections with Compassion, too. Just a few weeks before we met him for the first time, he was in Colorado Springs at Compassion's global minsitry center and gave the chapel presentation. You can watch it HERE. In it, you'll hear Dave's sister share a little about the success of Compassion's ministry in northern Thailand, and how some formerly sponsored children are now working with FBR.

I love hearing from you - your comments make my day! If you have trouble finding the comment button, try clicking on the title of this post. Hopefully that will solve the problem and you can say hi.
