After Ten Amazing Years in the Philippines, We are Now in Thailand!

Traditionally when a missionary family makes a transition from one country to another, they have a Stateside trip in between to prepare them for the new nation. After much prayer and consideration, we felt that we were to make the move to Thailand directly from the Philippines. With a joyful but also heavy heart, we said goodbye to our Filipino home and on April 15, 2014, we moved to Thailand. We did some serious downsizing, we were able to reduce our family belongings to just a few suitcases and boxes. At the Manila airport on the big moving day, about to get on our flight to Thailand. We have been in country for less than a month. During that time we started language learning, we bought a car and started to learn to drive on the left side of the road (it’s easier than you think), Gabriella started preschool at a Thai school, and we started doing ministry. Driving on the left side of the road will take some getting used to, but so far so good. Lunchtime
