Dear Friends and Family,


This is just a quick update and request for prayer. 


We have had a really wonderful time of outreaches over the last 2 months and have seen many salvations and healings as well as a greater sense of unity within our team. We are excited at what the Lord has in store for this year are committed to his will and his plan for our lives personally and for the ministry. 


Thank you for all those who are faithfully praying for us every time we go on our outreaches and for the work at the base. We truly believe it is because of your prayers and standing with us in the Spirit that we are seeing things shift and change for the good and seeing lives transformed - all glory to Jesus! 


We would like your prayers for this upcoming outreach and medical trip to the Thai-Burmese border. 

We will be spending 2 weeks - a week each at 2 locations along the border. Both areas are very strong buddhist areas and also in great need of pretty much everything in regards to their physical needs. 


We are focusing on medical help this trip as well as bringing some sanitary and basic living needs such as mosquito nets and blankets. Some of you may be thinking why they need blankets in Thailand and Burma! But the weather has been unusually cold the last 2 months and this has caused many sicknesses and cold / coughs which are now going around. 


We will also be doing some basic health and hygiene workshops in the villages and sharing the Gospel and praying with them. 


Please be praying for favour, that the peoples hearts will be opened and protection along the border for our team. Also for boldness for our team to preach and share following the leading of the Holy Spirit. Please also pray for the finances to be able to buy all the supplies we need for these villages. We are looking at around 2000 people we will be in contact with and are needing to spread our resources quite thin to be able to reach those families who are in greatest need with the supplies listed above. 


We are so thankful for the AUS medical team who will be joining us and bringing some help for medical supplies for the villages. The team includes 3 doctors and 3 teachers so we are looking forward to what they will be able to bring and bless the villages with. 


We will be updating our website and will be sending a more detailed update with photos when we arrive back to base. But in the mean time we really would appreciate your prayers for the next 2 weeks that we have ministering to many people in need along the border.


With much love and blessings in Christ,


Karenna & Dakhota
