Life has been full the last several months! We’re getting ready for the arrival of our second son in December as well as finishing up three translation projects!
Christiana will be giving birth in Thailand—our first international birth experience! Due to flying regulations and potential risks during late pregnancy, she will be leaving for Bangkok in mid November, and then I will join her with the kids and Christiana’s mom in early December (the due date is Dec. 13th). Christiana’s dad will also be joining us in Thailand, where we will all spend Christmas while we get our then new son’s papers in order. We would appreciate prayer for Christiana, as she has experienced the effects of preeclampsia with the last two children–that God will have His hand of mercy on all for a healthy delivery. We are very thankful for God providing financially through His people as well as through family for travel and the extended stay. We are blessed!
We will be finishing three translation projects in November, with a total of five books being released. This has been a long process of translation, editing, and re-editing to ensure that the books will be understandable and useful to the Body of Christ in Cambodia. We are so grateful for all of you who have partnered with us financially to sponsor these projects, and we are excited to see how God will use these books to grow His church in Cambodia! We will be releasing the last three books in the Design for Discipleship series by the Navigators, along with What Is a Healthy Church? by Mark Dever, and True Discipleship by William MacDonald.
A quick update on Paton: he is doing well and growing like a weed! He hasn’t had a seizure since the last one over two months ago, and also has not had a fever spike for over a month. Our medical bills for travel and exams have been fully covered by insurance and a few gifts we received – thank you so much for your continued prayers for our little guy and for your heartfelt support. We still do feel a bit drained as sickness in our family seems to be a normal part of life now, but we are learning to lean on Christ in the midst of it all.
