Here is our summer newsletter from us here in the rainy North-Thailand.
The rainy season has begun here now, so it's hot and humid and it can be a bit tiring at times.

I was a short trip to Norway in June, only me Tore, and I got a taste of some Norwegian summer as well. The summer in Norway has begun hot too, and that is not very usual.

In this newsletter I will write briefly about a few different things, such as: God's faithfulness toward us as a family, the trip I had to Norway and a some from our ministry, as a comment a child had after our Sunday school (read it in the end of this newsletter).

Here's some updates from us here in Northern Thailand.
 
We will mainly write about one grate news, and some news from our ministry.
 
The Grate News
We as family have great news! We are waiting a child! Mawkkham has been pregnant for over three months now, and the term is October 12th. It happened a bit faster than we had thought, but we are happy about it. We know it was God's timing for it and it is a good gift give us. We have had some challenges when my wife's visa as mentioned in the previous newsletter, and as we expect a child this has been a headache for us. The visa we have now for my wife and two children expires in late September, so we needed a quick solution, before she is not able to travel. We have to leave the country to get a new visa for one year and it is very difficult to travel if you are 8th months pregnant.

We are in one of the hottest months of the year now, and the summer vacation has already begun out here, but in our ministry we are not going to have a vacation right now.

This newsletter will mainly be about a piece of land we have rented for our ministry: Good News for the Shan, which has been an answer to prayer for us and has a great potential for the future and we have already seen some good results by just having it for a few weeks.

Got a Heart for a Village

When I moved to Thailand as a missionary for the first time in early 2000, I was quite sick and did not do a lot of ministry, but I had a motorcycle. I took a ride on my motorcycle every day on a hill where I had a good view of the whole Fang valley, and I prayed for the Shan people and that people should hear the Good News here. I also prayed for a village behind this place, and this is where we now have rented a piece of land and have a lot of our ministry.
I got a heart for this place and the village, but it was quite far (about 30 minutes with car) from where we started the ministry I was part of until 2016 (2003-2016) and we did not have much activity there, just a few sporadic house churches.

Newsletter December 2017

Here is a Christmas Newsletter from us here in Northern Thailand.
In Thailand, the "cold" season has begun, it means that you need to wear jacket in the morning and we do not have to use aircon. But if you live on the ricefield, it can actually be cold in the mornings, sometimes  down to 10 degrees Celsius.

We have already started to have Christmas parties and preparations for Christmas parties here in Northern Thailand.
The month of December is a grate opportunity to tell the Good News to the Shan people, and they have very often not ever heard what Christmas is all about. It is also a very busy time in our ministry and for us as a family.

We will have some updates and two stories in this e.mail.

Newsletter October 2017
Here are some news from us here in northern Thailand. 
We are at the end of the monsoon season now, but it seems as all the rain came in early October instead of June and August. It pored down for several days, and there were many floods several places here in Thailand.

This newsletter will be about an answer to prayer in connection with my wife's visa and a visit from a Canadian DTS team for nine days. They help us to reach out and encourage many Shan People, and some even got saved.

Newsletter September 2017
Here are some news from us here in northern Thailand.
We are in the middle of the monsoon season now, and the weather is changing quickly from sunshine to heavy rain. I'm glad to have a 4wd pickup, otherwise it would be difficult to get out on the rice fields and orange farms where we every weeks visit and do ministry among the Shan people.
In this newsletter we will write about two stories. One is about a family who recently came to Thailand and had to flee back again, and one is about two boys who disappeared for five days and they were found trough Facebook.
