Catching Up - part 2

Not quite sure how many parts this "Catching Up" blog is going to be...

On December 5th, we hosted a two-church youth meeting. Several teens from Nakhon Nayok Baptist Church (an hour away) came to join our teens. We had a total of 20 young people. Four young men from Bangjak Baptist Church in Bangkok lead in the event. There was singing, a really silly skit, games, sharing of God's Word, and of course, eating. Most of the teens from Nakhon Nayok were non-believers and it was their first time to hear anything about God. Praise the Lord for seeds planted that evening!

December 5th also happens to be King Bhumiphon's birthday and so it is Father's Day in Thailand. On Sunday, December 7th, we had our first Father's Day celebration in our church plant. Our friend, Rick Caynor, shared his testimony and about how God is our loving and caring heavenly Father. The kids and teens performed skits, several songs, and Bible verses in English, and sang a song of encouragement to four dads and other adults who came to the event. Three of those dads had never been to our church before. We were so delighted that they stayed for the lunch fellowship and chatted with us. We continue to plant seeds in this hard soil.

Catching Up - part 1

We feel like our lives have been nothing but running and flying in the past few months. The last blog post was on November 2nd, and this is the second week of February! Wow! We will try to get caught up with what has been going on in the Weber family. There's so much to tell but since a picture is worth a thousand words, we'll post several.

In November we celebrated our 11th year anniversary. Missionary friends of ours kept all three of our boys so we could go away for a couple days. One day was spent malling. We've almost forgotten how fun window shopping is without three little boys tagging along! Another day was spent touring the old capital of Thailand, Ayutthaya. We went to see the Bangpa-in Palace. It's so nice, and quiet, and beautiful there! We were also able to see the old ruins in the same city. We both agree that that was the most fun time we've ever had together. We praise the Lord for each other and the team we are for the ministry here.

We celebrated Thanksgiving day in Bangkok with fellow missionaries at the home of Ricky and Tammy Salmon. As any other thanksgiving feast, food was wonderful and oh... desserts were even better! Both the adults and the children enjoyed the fellowship - something we get to do only once or twice a year with this group of people. Before the meal, each one was given the opportunity to share what he/she was thankful to the Lord for in the past year. We all had so much to be thankful for. God is good and faithful!
