For everyone that knows that we are in this part of the world, wanted to let you know that we are okay and didn't have any problems. On Friday classes were cancelled and so we went and helped at a local church that had about 130 evacuees. It was a good time, we helped watch kids, vacuum, cook and clean up. On Saturday, having never experienced a hurricane, we stayed inside but it really wasn't that bad. We were supposed to travel to Fort Worth, but we rescheduled our appointments for a later date.We received about 5 inches of rain and some branches broke off the trees around the place, but compared to what I was expecting it wasn't bad. Today it is sunny and still breezy and most of the churches didn't have services today because they were hosting evacuees. Thanks for all the prayers while we have been here.
School is still going good. We are busy and half way through the first semester already. We are learning lots and working hard.

We found out yesterday that Tawm's grandmother in Thailand passed away quietly in her sleep. She was 84, had alzheimers and was in bad health before we left. We didn't expect her to last too much longer. Knowing that makes it a little easier but it is still hard for Tawm. Her parents are at the funeral which will take place most of the week. Pray for them as they go through another difficult time. Pray also for Tawm's parents house in Thailand. They live quite close to a canal and it is currently at the brim with all the rain they have been receiving and are worried that their house will flood. Thanks for reading our blog and being involved in our lives too!

I am sorry that I haven't updated this blog in a while. We are doing good still. We are keeping very busy with school and speaking in churches too. The weather is starting to cool off a little bit now. I had the opportunity to preach 3 times this past week at Unity Missionary Baptist Church in Longview Texas. It was a lot of hard work, but I enjoyed it however my voice hurt a lot when I was finished because I usually don't talk that much!!! The people were very friendly and most of them came for all three services. Thanks to the people there for your hospitality!
