Janice’s Update April 26, 2022

Dear Friends,

I am finishing up my responsibilities and turning over this role as Field Director to Mark Murphy who will serve as Field Director next year. I will serve as International Worker in Residence at Shell Point Retirement Community in Fort Myers, Florida. I will arrive there on July 1, 2022.

This has been a different term as so much of the 3 years have been affected by the COVID pandemic. When the government required us to close our doors and not gather, we learned how to do on-line worship. Although far from ideal, we learned to make the best of the difficult situation. Pastor's suffered due to little or no income in rural areas.

The beautiful part in all this was seeing the body of Christ learn to "be the church" instead of "doing church" which we had become so use to doing. We learned to do ministry outside of church walls and find ways to help pastors and communities hit especially hard from COVID. It was sad to see suicide on the increase during these months as people lost hope at how they could care for their families. We found ways to help the most vulnerable in all of our communities. I, personally found ways to purchase rice, food, water, toys for children and masks for over 150 Cambodian and Burmese migrant workers doing construction work in my neighborhood, on three separate occasions.

God opened doors to meet these needs through the COVID pandemic.

This year marks 37 years of ministry in the Kingdom of Thailand. Although there have been a hundred reasons to pack my bags over these 37 years, God's sustaining grace has kept me. I am grateful for His presence and your faithful prayers.

Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer

1. Pray for our two new church plants that God would use them to reach their neighbors with the good news of Jesus. We are receiving good reports of what God is doing in spite of on again/off again worship services due to COVID.

2. Pray for my winding down and turning over responsibilities to Mark Murphy who will serve as Field Director next year.

3. Pray for traveling mercies as I travel to the US on June 30th to begin Home Assignment.
