Pray Requests

Well after a few days of getting used to the time change here in Southeast Asia, we are needing some prayer as we have hit the ground running already in engaging students with the Gospel.

Please pray for:

- Raymond (He has many questions about what it means being "born again" and Ben is right now talking with him about it. Pray for Ben to persevere and love him.)
- Jackie (She is from Mongolia and Emily and Kristen have a possible opportunity to talk more in depth with her as she has extended her hand to them.)
- Kim (Opportunity for the ladies to witness more with her.)
- Monu (From India and desires friendship with others. Pray that we can show him what friendship with Christ looks like.)
- Bible Study Tonight (There will be a good many unbelievers (10 or more) at this Bible Study discussion group at the house we are staying at together. We will host them and lead them through a discussion in Philippians.

That is it for now. Thanks so much for praying for us as we know you already are. I'm sorry I have not put up any pictures just yet. I promise they are coming as the camera is very busy capturing as many moments as possible.

All for now.

we made it!

Although we really weren't booked on two of our three flights we made it exactly as planned. We have had some set backs due to vehicles not starting, but we are flexible. Please pray that the enemy would not have victory through these unplanned set backs.
Pray for Adam our new friend who is a young believer. He will be hanging out with us while we are here. The family here is still getting settled in and needs some rest. We are planning a babysitting evening for them to have a night out.
We will blog again soon!

Ready for 23 Hours?

I don't think we are ready for 23 hours, but we are going to have to be since that will be the amount of time we will be in the air from Sunday morning 10:45 until 11:45 PM Monday night. We are really excited about this trip and anticipate many things which God will do in our lives and others. Please pray for our humility and strong health as I (Steven) am not feeling to well right now with soreness in my throat and a little congestion. I lift up my eyes, from where does my help come from? It comes from Him who made heaven and earth (Psalm 121). Gladness and thanks for the one who sustains us and preserves our well-being.

The Junk Drawer

You know you have one. Or maybe even a closet devoted to junk. Where does it come from? Why does it seem to multiply rapidly? Steven and I were cleaning out the other night and decided our collection of cameras was a little reminder of history. The world is becoming so technologically advanced so fast I can hardly keep up. Anyways, this picture is dedicated to the billions of film cameras in junk drawers across the world and even old digital ones.

I am always looking for new blogs that offer interesting topics and make me think. Some of my professors at Southeastern put together a blog and in my opinion it is very interesting. Check it out and see for yourself...

Photo Update

July 4th was a crazy night as a intense storm rolled through Chapel Hill. Little did we know it was going to be the death of a huge tree in the yard of the Battle House. Steven and I documented the lightening struck tree...
I was blessed to see my best friend for the second time in a month. This never happens b/c we live far away...

Only In Other Countries

In light of our upcoming trip to SE Asia our featured country is China. A train is a major source of transportation there. They also like to get places quickly in China. From the airport to the city can be a long distance and take much time with lots of traffic. But not any more... thanks to magnetic levitation you can board the train at the airport and arrive in the middle of the city 32 kilometers away in 8 minutes. This train travels at 500kph! Even though the German's invented it, China was the first to use it. Maybe one day I'll experience for myself!
