Love from Thailand - Bruce News
•Good health and strength to study Thai •Friends who will put up with us regularly •Sharp ears to hear this difficult language •Understanding and sensitivity to culture •Wisdom in how to best spend our time •Visible daily progress in the language •Solidarity and love in our relationship Dear Friends and Family, During February we noticed a marked improvement in our language ability and had our first formal evaluation. Though weʼre encouraged with how we can use the language thereʼs no way to chart language improvement on a graph and some days itʼs difficult to see progress. Keep praying! Weʼre approaching hot season in Thailand with almost no transition after “winter” where the nights dipped into the sixties. Pray for good health during this time as farmers in the mountains begin slashing and burning their fields in preparation for the rains in April. Unfortunately since we live in a valley all the smoke and smog wafting off the mountains settles right here. Weʼre excited for an upcoming trip to Northeast Thailand to visit possible future ministry locations. Stay tuned on our blog to catch pictures from our travels and updates from the village weʼll be visiting. Thank- you each for your love, your prayers and for continuing to partner with Godʼs work in Thailand.
