Callahan Corner for March 13, 2016

Hello to our dear friends,

We don’t know what your weather is like, but ours is turning HOT!
But weren’t we, just a few days back, complaining about the cold weather?
Oh well, here are some photos to enjoy…
Just in case you think we are exaggerating about the hot weather, here is a screen-shot of our 10-day forecast.
“But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord and has made the Lord his hope and confidence. He is like a tree planted along a riverbank, with its roots reaching deep into the water–a tree not bothered by the heat nor worried by long months of drought. Its leaves stay green, and it goes right on producing all its luscious fruit.” (Jeremiah 17:7-8)

“But let your words be simply, Yes or No…” (Matt 5:37) And, I’ll say that our “cold” means cold too! Not long ago the girls in our Home of Faith had to bundle in blankets while doing their homework.


Rebecca lost a tooth – but it wasn’t because her teeth were chattering. All of the girls visited the dentist for a checkup, and only one of them had a small cavity.
“Your teeth are like a flock of sheep coming up white from the washing;” (Song of Solomon 6:6)


The onset of hot weather brings out the mangos on our trees, and tomatoes in our small garden.
“He [God] sends rain upon the mountains and fills the earth with fruit…and there are fruit trees, vegetables, and grain for man to cultivate” (Psalm 104:13-14)


Warm weather means it’s time for a “cookout”! Here Grit and Mark, from Home of Grace were grilling fish. The inset photos show their results.
“When they got there, they found breakfast waiting for them—fish cooking over a charcoal fire…” (John 21:9)


Chiang Mai held a big parade recently to celebrate 720 years since its founding. The boys from Home of Grace went to see the spectacle…many parade floats were covered with colorful flowers & seeds. Pray that we who are Christians in this place will truly be “salt and light.”
“And God replied, ‘If I find ten godly people there, I will spare the entire city for their sake.’” (Genesis 18:32)

Please pray for all of our children to be protected and held safely in God’s loving hands this summer, as many will be visiting relatives in their home villages.
Remember, you are well loved and often prayed for by our orphan families in Thailand!

Grace and peace to you in Christ,
