Christmas Dinner | 2015

What an opportunity we had to share the Christmas story over dinner! Ed's mom and step-father attended, along with a few others who are not yet believers. Ed clearly shared the Gospel. We continue to pray that even through an informal setting like this, Jesus is proclaimed.



We thank the Lord for these dear ladies God brought into our lives to disciple. They are a blessing to us and they have become part of our family.

Thanksgiving 2015

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner this year which we held at the Hope House for the first time. It was great to have non-Christian Thai friends join us again this year. God has done great things and we are thankful!

How Often?

How often does it happen that someone would come to us because he/she is interested in learning about God and the Bible? Not often this past week, we had not one but two! Two people who really want to study the Bible. Somehow someone else planted the seed of God's Word in their hearts and God led them to us. We are overjoyed and encouraged!

New Intern

We got another short-termer through ABWE home office. Joy Walker arrived in Thailand the first week of September to work with us for about a year. Joy comes with experience both as a missionary kid and as short-term in other countries. She has so far displayed nothing but eagerness to learn the language, get acclimated to the culture, and get right down to work. We are thankful for longer short-term help.

Thai Mother's Day 2015

Thailand celebrates mother's day in August on Queen Sirikit's birthday, August 12th. We celebrate at our church on August 9th. We praise the Lord for 10 mothers who were present. Ed shared a simple message from God's Word, the teen girls did an interpretive worship dance, the kids sang two songs, the moms received a gift basket, and we shared a delicious Thai meal together.

Visit with Grandparents in the Philippines

The Weber boys were able to travel to the Philippines with Darlene in July. They had a wonderful two-week visit with the grandparents whom they have not seen in almost seven years! It was a sweet and precious time. They also got to hang out with aunts, uncles, and cousins that live in the area.

Visit from High School Friends

This week, we had the joy of having our high school friends come see the ministry and visit with us for a day. What a joy to catch up on life and share with each other what God is doing. Darlene and Pearl (our co-worker [in pink]) were also in the same youth group with these friends.

We are thankful for people like these dear ones who are pursuing their passion for missions involvement. Who's coming next? :-D

Encouragement from Home Church

This week was an encouraging week for us. Our dear friends, Darin and Amy, were here to help us in any way they can for the Hope House Dedication ceremony and to encourage us. Darin is our Music Pastor at our home church, Shenandoah Baptist Church in Roanoke, VA. These sweet friends have such a passion for people and missions around the world. We are so blessed to call them friends.

It was fun to show them our part of the world and the ministry here. They were kind enough to share God's Word with the Thai kids and the believers in our church.

Hope House Dedication

God's timing is always perfect. We rejoice in that. We praise Him for His miraculous provision. We trust Him for His work in our lives and hearts during the whole process. He is wise and sovereign. We praise His name for all that He has done.

Here are some photos taken during the Hope House Dedication on Saturday, June 13, 2015. Hope House for Girls stands as a testament to God's miraculous provision through His people. It is the first home for children of any kind in our entire province of Prachinburi. We believe this is only the beginning. Rejoice with us! He is good and faithful!



Many of our dear friends, ABWE Thailand team mates, ministry 
partners, and people we know in our community came for the celebration.


Teen girls from our church did a beautiful job with the interpretive dance.









Prachinburi provincial office of the Social Welfare and Development
representatives came to see the house and celebrate with us. This is
a first home for children that they will be working with.

Our mentor and ministry partner, Pastor Al Henson of Compassionate Hope USA.
He is a gift from God and a tremendous blessing to us.
