The Lees in Cambodia are alive and…alive. Life is constantly changing and jam-packed. Finding time to process as well as articulating and sharing with you has been a challenge but we hope you know that you are often thought of and prayed for. We miss you and long for a time of fun and fellowship.
We wanted to share with you a recent and significant change. Paul will be expanding his role in Southeast Asia. Along with his current role as co-leader of the MTW Cambodia team, working with the three of our church plant sites and working with the national pastors in Cambodia, he will work with the national partners in Vietnam and in Myanmar, helping in their church planting efforts in their respective countries. Please pray for physical health and endurance as he travels in-country as well as abroad. Please pray for wisdom as he begins to learn and get to know the people and their respective ministries in the new countries.
For the rest of the family, it is life as usual. Right now, the whole family is focusing on keeping their heads above water. The boys are finishing up their school year and all their extra-curricular. God has provided a couple of wonderful friendships for the boys that have been a source of joy and comfort. However, their closest one will be returning to the States in June, after have many years of life here. Please pray as they go through another series of goodbyes, losing another close friend. Please pray for comfort but also that their hearts would not grow jaded and guarded or resentful. Please pray that God would not only provide a long-term friendship but that they would learn to draw near to their Lord.
