That’s us, in front of our perfect little temporary home we call “the Hobbit house”. How’d we end up here?
SUMMER & FALL – 2015
Months later, with numerous paper-work and in-person interviews behind us, we celebrated our acceptance! A short trip to Thailand solidified our position on the Serve Asia team, and after a week long training we began the faith-building work of partnership development.
WINTER & SPRING
Partnership development had us travel locally and to surrounding states, connecting with churches and individuals led to support G’s work in Asia.
SUMMER & FALL – 2016
During that year we also partook in an informative online and in-person training for pre-deployed overseas workers. At the same time, we packed and sold things and then to our great surprise and greater joy, found we were expecting a special little addition to our family- the very week we closed on our home!
SPRING & SUMMER – 2017
We continued partnership development with the added excitement of waiting for our sweet baby boy to arrive. During this time, Dave went back to Thailand for the biennial Asia Division Conference and then in July our little one arrived into the world!
With immense support and encouragement from family and friends we are here today, in our transitional Hobbit house, recovering and adjusting well to our new parenting role, and eager to begin the work in Asia G has called us to- now as a family of three!
With absolutely all credit to the Lord and to your generous prayers and support, we’re excited to announce that our planned departure date is set! On NOVEMBER 9TH we plan to depart Kansas and begin our move to Thailand.
Upon reflecting on these last two years, we see and celebrate the L’s faithfulness to us and through you- individuals, families, and communities around the U.S. who have given and continue to give your time, prayers, hospitality, and/or financial provision for the sake of gospel transformation in Asia!
Here’s to His glory through His people!
With thanksgiving, Sarah Lynn
