We have Arrived!! (Physically speaking, Lord knows not in a lot of other ways!!) After talking about serving God in Asia, preaching about serving God in Asia, praying about serving God in Asia ect., ect., we are finally BACK, SERVING GOD IN ASIA!! We are ecstatic! Feels like we’re home, though it sure was a tear fest saying goodbye to our families! We had a great flight on Japan Airlines from Vancouver to Tokyo and then to Bangkok. We stayed with Peter and Sandra Macintosh last night and were just treated like royalty. Had a great time this morning talking about all the crazy missions trips we’ve been on and then Sandra took Avin and myself to the Pentecostal Bible College in Udomsuk, Bangkok where we will be staying for the next 30 days, teaching at the IMPACT SCHOOL OF MISSIONS (ISM)
Our apartment at the Bible school is a 3 bedroom place with a living room, a kitchen and Air Conditioning!!! I am getting soft in my old age!!
We got unpacked and settled in today, got all our phones hooked up with SIM Cards, went grocery shopping, experienced a classic SE Asia 1 hour rain storm with thunder and lightning and had some amazing ‘gang keow wahn guy’ for lunch! Just feels so good to be BACK!! God is so good!
We begin teaching on September 10th, so for the next few days we will be preparing for our classes, having staff meetings and hanging out with our friends here in Bangkok.
Really appreciate all your support, prayers and for believing in us!! Please be praying for Gods anointing to be on us as we teach and pour into the students at ISM over the next 30 days.
Joel and Avin
