SUPPORT NEEDS
While we are in the states one of our responsibilities is to raise financial support for ministering in Thailand. Due to our growing family and our Campus Outreach expansion to Chiang Mai, we have both increased monthly and one-time support needs.

MONTHLY NEED: $1,400/month -> WHY? 
  1. Going from a 2 person to a 3 person family
  2. A higher cost of living in Chiang Mai
  3. Increase in health insurance
  4. Campus Ministry Budget (a new responsibility with my promotion)

ONE-TIME NEED: $35,000 -> WHY?
  1. CAR - $18,000 (Cars are taxed 300% in Thailand and we will need a 2nd vehicle for ministry and family use.)
  2. MOVE TO CHIANG MAI: $5,000
  3. TAXES AND ADMIN FEE: $7,000
  4. FEDERAL TAXES WHILE IN THE U.S.: $4,000
  5. GLOBAL STAFF CONFERENCE: $1,000
HOW YOU CAN HELP?
1........person at $500/month/$6,000 annually
2........people at $200/month/$2,400 annually
3........people at $100/month/$1,200 annually
4........people at $50/month/$600 annually

BACK IN THAILAND
  • All Thai Mission-Trip (CCP) to Malaysia - Back in April for the 1st time ever, a Thai staff family led a team of student leaders from our ministry in Khon Kaen to partner with a team doing campus ministry in Malaysia. This trip led to personal growth and increased world vision for all the students.
  • New Semester at KKU & USA CCP - In June around 20 American college students involved with CO in the states came to Thailand to partner with our staff on the campus. We're thankful that many of the students who we met last year will be followed up. Please continue to pray for our students in Engineering and Humanities.
  • Baptism Service (picture above) - This past Sunday 9 students were baptized who became Christians over the last year. Court has personal relationships with 4 of the girls who were baptized. It's exciting to see the church growing.

Thanks for all your prayers and support. We hope to connect with you while we are here.

Blessings,
