Rachael's Thailand Update

Swatdeeka <<First Name>>!


   This is NOT a quarterly update but an update on a new adventure God is going to take me beginning the end next week.  First of all I want to thank you for the financial support and prayers you have provided to me these past,10 months I've been in Chiang Mai, Thailand. None of this would be possible without God first and foremost, then secondly your support! I know I say this every update but it is so very true and I want you to always remember it.  I also ask that you prayerfully consider to continue during these next 6 months and here is why.....   

     On March 19 I will begin the Justice DTS course I told you about in the last update, in the southern part of Thailand.  The DTS team and I will have 3 months of lecture, 2 months of outreach in Pattaya, Thailand and throughout Nepal, and 1 month of evangelism outreach in Phuket, Thailand.  

     This opportunity will be a great tool in preparing me to incorporate missions, evangelism, and human rights issues together.  
Combining these 3 is something I have struggled with figuring out since I want to be on the front end, prevention and awareness side of Human T. 


    Another update is that the church in Korea has given me their blessing and released me to go the direction I feel the Lord is leading me.  You will still be able to donate through them and pray for me but they will no longer be making decisions for me.  

     I must admit however, I don't know what that direction will look like after DTS but that is not my concern at the moment.  Right now God is calling me into a "Season of Mary."  I won't go into detail here about what that means because I wrote a blog about it so you can read more here.    
 

     Please reply to this email if you are able to support me.  The total cost of DTS is $5000.  I have had some support for this already and the rest is what I have in savings.  I need around $2000 more for DTS by May 7,  $500 for personal supplies, toiletries, etc, and then around $600 for health insurance which expires the end of May.  Ways you can support me are listed at the end of this newsletter.

     Again, I thank you so much for everything!  I hope to be home in the fall for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year and I want to see as many of you as possible if that happens!  You are the greatest!  You are loved not only by God but by me too!!!  :) Lots of love, hugs, and kisses!

Prayer Request:

***Please pray for healing and restoration during this time.  I'm a broken mess right now.

***Please pray for continued language learning.  Fortunately this DTS is done in 1/2 Thai and 1/2 English which should really push me forward in speaking and listening in Thai.  A majority of students attending are Thai citizens so it will also be a great cultural learning experience as well, living with Thais for 6 months!

***Pray that I grow in my knowledge and understanding of how to combine Human Rights and Missions so they work together well, complimenting each other and bringing glory to God.

***Pray that I focus on being Mary and don't get sucked into Martha mode. (see blog)

***Pray for wisdom and discernment. 

***Pray for unity with our DTS class. Pray that we all work together well to accomplish much for the kingdom and with the people God has for us to encounter.  Pray that we grow close to one another pushing each other closer to God! We are so much more effective when we work together rather than against one another!
