Dearest Friends & Family,
We want you to know that we appreciate each one of you. It’s been a joy to be more connected with many of you as we have been in the States. Being able to text you or see you in person on Sundays or have special meals has been an encouragement for us! Thanks for each of you who have supported us through prayers and finances! Know that God continues to use you in our lives and in many others as we minister to some of the least reached in Asia Pacific. Speaking of our ministry there in the village it continues to happen through our team there. There are 5 meetings a week where teaching and studying God’s Word together continues with small groups. There are also plans for a small dental team to make a trip to the village as a community project to help, that is coming up in August. We truly appreciate our 2 coworker families who have taken on a heavy load these last few months. One prayer request to keep in mind, we just got word that one of the men in the village, a father of 4 kids was just in a motorcycle accident and seems to have brain damage. The mission plane was able to help get him out to town where they will be doing an MRI. Part of his larger family has studied with us and we’re praying that this situation will draw them closer to the Savior.
Tim continues to do work daily on revising lessons and continual preparation for teaching in the village once we get back there. The plan at this point is to head back to Asia Pacific the 2nd week of October. We have started to feel a winding down of our time here in the States. It’s really been a great time of reconnecting though and we’re very thankful that we’ve had this time.
So we’re WAITING for baby Ullum to arrive. I feel like my stomach can’t get any bigger without popping. I am due July 27 but would love to go a bit sooner than that if the Lord has it! We’re thankful that the Lord moved His hand and flipped baby boy as he was in the breech position. All is a go now so we wait. Andrea’s sister and family and also parents and 2 aunts are planning to be here right around the time baby boy should be here. We’re excited about being able to be surrounded by family and friends at this birth. That was something we really missed with both Dina & Abby’s arrival.
Thanks for praying with us that all with go well with the delivery, we would love for it to be a quick and beautiful arrival for this little gift we’ve been given!
Blessings For A Fun & Fruitful Rest of Your Summer,
Tim & Andrea, Dina, Abby & Baby boy
