Furlough Update

Categories: Updates from the Wells Family

Hello Everyone,

Our time back in the States is approaching quickly! We will be arriving in San Francisco on June 1st, and we will be in California for June and July. We will then be in New Jersey from August until early November, where we will live in missionary housing, using the time to debrief, recharge and rebuild. We will return to the Bay Area, California to live in a house in Morgan Hill that the Lord has graciously provided for us for the remainder of our year in the States. So, at this point, we have found housing accommodations to cover the full year! Praise God! He truly has been gracious in providing for our needs. Thank you to all of you who reached out with possible leads and prayed on our behalf.

We would ask that you continue to lift up our family in prayer:

  • For improved health, especially as we make the long trip back to the States. We’ve been struggling with various illnesses for the entire month of May, and several of us are currently sick.
  • That the Lord would direct our steps as we seek council and guidance regarding Christiana’s health issues and healing for our entire family, as it has been a very difficult year for us.
  • For our children, who are feeling the burden of transition. To paraphrase one of them regarding our year in the States: “I’m so happy to go to America, but I’m so sad to leave Cambodia”. Oh, the complex life of a third culture kid (TCK). Please pray for wisdom as we parent these precious souls. 

We are so grateful for each of you, especially for the support and love that we have experienced from the Body of Christ during this time. We are truly blessed.

In Christ,
Nathan & Christiana
