So lately me and Sawang have been just working away in the ministry, trying to fit everything we need to do into the day, which is seldom successful but an adventure to try anyway.
Sawang is an editor for Continuum TV, which airs in Canada on the miracle channel, and I work on the website for the ministry, which is www.continuummedia.com. This is very new for me, not having trained in this field, but God' s grace is on this project and I am working towards rebuilding the site with a fresh look and some video, audio and flash embedded into the site. Pretty exciting stuff, all so that people can catch hold of the vision we have to see Asia won for the gospel of Jesus!!!
We're getting married in October of this year, and are hoping to get to Canada at christmastime so everyone can meet him and get to understand what an awesome man of God I am marrying!!
We appreciate your prayers, and your comments, check out the website and let me know what you think!!! I am not opposed to new ideas either, just FYI!

Hi once again friends and family! I can’t believe a month has gone by already since we last spoke! It has been busy busy these last few weeks and I want to tell you where we are in the ministry to date:
First of all, I want to thank everyone for their continued interest in what is happening with the Lighthouse. (This is the building that will house the El Shaddai 2 Children’s Home on the bottom floor and rent apartments for the remaining floors. The profits from that will be able to support the Children’s Home.) As you may remember from last month’s letter, the bank we are with has become corrupt with the new government in power, and has taken 30% of our funds needed to complete the building. We are trying now to refinance the mortgage with another bank. With our money currently tied up, some creditors came on Tuesday to take their windows and aluminum etc back because everything has been stalled while we are waiting for this release. All the staff in our ministry went out to intercede over the building, and now the creditors have agreed to wait a bit longer. Now that we have exhausted all our options we are trusting in God’s miracle working power to provide a way forward. Please stand with us in prayer and faith that God will indeed make a way where there has seemed to be no way.
I also wanted to make a personal announcement for all who haven’t yet heard: Sawang proposed on 15th January so now we are officially engaged! The wedding is in October here in Thailand and you are all most welcome to join us! We have our own website now (aww how cute) and it’s sawangandleeanne.blogspot.com.
I have updated the Ministry’s website, check it out at www.continuummedia.com for all that is happening in the ministry these days. Please pray for skill and creativity on my part to communicate our vision effectively through the web, because we need both givers and go-ers to do all that God has called us to do in Asia!!
So I want to say thank-you to everyone who has sown gifts and monthly support in order for me to serve here, so we can work with Victory Asia to see breakthrough!
If you would like to become a monthly sponsor to me, or if you want to sow financially into the ministry in Asia, please contact me on email@example.com Or Alex Coetzee on firstname.lastname@example.org.
