New member into our family

Our lives have changed forever, but our vision remains the same!

Blessings from Thailand! We explained in our Winter newsletter (remember that one? The six-page special edition letter that no one read) that we were hoping to have kids Adoption was always on our hearts, because Sawang was adopted and we both want to share God’s love to those most in need. We were approached by a friend who has a ministry in neighbouring Pattaya, a city notorious for its sex trade, who told us of a pregnant woman in a slum who was planning to leave her baby at the hospital once she gave birth. We agreed to welcome this child into our family and were phoned when the mother went into labor a few weeks later. Elizabeth Joy is the name God gave us for our daughter, and we took her home when she was four days old. Elizabeth, or Elle, as we call her, is one month old today and she has been the most tremendous, amazing blessing to us!
In some almost-as-exciting news, Sawang will
be going on the annual two-week jungle trip with Pastor Al, the bible college students, and a team from Canada to minister to different tribes and villages in Northern Thailand, then he is going to China for four days. God is really beginning to enlarge our tents and we are so excited for what He will have us do this Spring and into summer.
In Xtreme news we are focusing on relationship building and are vision casting for the next wave of youth connecting with Jesus Christ. We are building new believers and stirring them to reach out to others with the saving power of Jesus.
We thank each one of you for your prayers and financial gifts, together we are aggressively plundering hell and populating heaven!
Together in Christ, Sawang & Lee-Anne
