“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,
“plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
(Jer. 29:11)

This promise is an encouragement in times of uncertainty such as this one is for us. It seems that God has closed the door to further ministry with Act Beyond (formerly Mission to Unreached Peoples) at this time. Act Beyond had graciously given us a year’s leave of absence for TK to work on the personal issues that came up early last year. As we are not yet ready to be re-deployed overseas we will not be able to continue with the organization.

Our heart for ministry, particularly among the unreached is undiminished. We will continue to send the Kuy Prayer Update and hope to stay in touch with those working with the Kuy. Our desire is to eventually return to missions among the unreached in South East Asia. We do not have a definite timetable for this. At the very least it will be another year and a half as we have promised Nate that we will stay here long enough for him to graduate from High School.

We cannot share specifics as to what we will be doing during this interim time as it is not at all clear to us. We are convinced that the Lord has good things in store and will provide for our needs.

This is, we hope, not “good-bye.” We hope to stay in touch with you and let you know how the Lord leads. We covet your prayers for this time of change.

Praise for:
•    12 good years of ministry with Act Beyond
•    30+ years of ministry, mostly overseas, with YOU, our faithful ministry partners
•    God’s gracious provision of this place of transition for our time of recovery/healing

Pray for:
•    Clear direction for our future, especially as it regards returning to work with unreached peoples
•    Employment
•    Continued progress in healing and restoration for TK
