6 Weeks Later

…and we’re back in Texas, ya’ll.  Arizona was fast and full, and it doesn’t ever feel like enough. Thank you to our Phoenix family and friends for everything. Now we have 2 more weeks in this here Lone Star State.  In regards to physical recovery, we’re pretty solidly in the snail’s pace of progress. Brian and I are both seeing …

A Smashing Welcome

Update from America: We arrived safely to Texas last Wednesday morning. Thanks for praying us over. It was our smoothest trip yet. 27 hours later we were t-boned going through an intersection. Brian’s Dad was driving us over to visit Brian’s Grandma when a young gal ran a red light. Brian was passenger and I was back middle with the …

XC Race

We hosted our second conference cross-country race of the season last Friday. Over 130 runners from 8 international schools attended. 60 of those were students from GIS that I coach. This is quite amazing since just a few years ago there were only a few schools with a XC program and less than 60 runners combined in all of the …

Dtui’s Story

One of our favorite things to hear are stories of lives being changed by the impact Grace International School has had on them. Here’s the story of one of the Thai staff: As a guard for eleven+ years at Grace International School, Dtui has had contact with many believers. Several of the teachers and parents within the GIS community have taken …

Six Years. Still Here!

We’re celebrating 6 years and we wouldn’t be here without you—your prayers, your financial support, your friendship—your you. THANK YOU.

The Last Few Months

We visited Koh Samui, an island in southern Thailand, for a race and family getaway recently. (Which is where we met the fantastic coconut procuring and protecting monkey pictured below!)  I (Brian) went for a run up a mountain and ended up talking and praying with a guy who works as a deep sea diver for oil companies. He shared how …

Highlights from the School Year

As I sit down to send this we’re already halfway through summer, and the days are tipping away from the last school year and toward the coming. Brian spent some time writing out highlights from the 2017/18 school year and we’d like to share a few of those with you here: This is our second school year in a temporary location.  We’re currently sharing a campus with another school …

School Year Highlights

Brian spent some time writing out highlights from the 2017/18 school year and we’d like to share a few of those with you here: This is our second school year in a temporary location.  We’re currently sharing a campus with another school while we raise funds to build our new campus. Sharing the campus has actually been a really neat ministry opportunity for me as I’ve spent time with some …

10 Years Later

We’re thrilled and honored to be included in Venture’s annual report this year. Brian recently sat down with friend and fellow Venture missionary (who wrote the article) to span his history from first contact with Venture (to ride his bicycle across America) to our currently unfolding story of serving with Venture in Thailand for 5+ years. We are excited to share this with you! Read the article here: Venture 2017 Annual …

Venture Thailand Team Retreat 2018

Last week we joined our Venture Thailand teammates for a retreat in Phayao, Thailand. Our co-founder and fellow missionary summed up the time well: “We have a great team. I love serving alongside our มูลนิธิวัฒนปราชญ์ Venture Human Development Foundation staff. It was fun to spend a few days at our annual retreat learning how we can improve Venture’s food security, education, …
