Winter 2019

As a family, we look back to a fantastic year: We were happily expecting
again, we were able to take a vision trip to Thailand to further discover Gods plan for us and where we celebrated our 3-year wedding anniversary.

In the meantime, Hannah is almost 18 months old. She is an enthusiastic and fun young lady who loves to play outdoors and sings and makes music all the time. She totally succeeds in keeping us on our toes.

On November 1st, we welcomed our beautiful son Judah Josiah. He came a
little early which caused some starting issues. He still has some catching up
to do but is on the right track. We are very grateful that he improved so fast
and all the good care he receives.

During this blessed year we were able to grow closer to God. We learned
even more as a family that our trust is in Him, He who made the heavens and the earth. He made that really clear to us in our home and in our church. He also showed us that this is the focal point of our mission plans. He builds the house, He takes care of the work in progress.

Therefore, we were happy that were able to attend a Third Culture Kid-day from InTo Mission on October 12th that had ‘Ready Set Go!’ as a theme. We received valuable information to prepare ourselves, and our children for this journey. It challenged us to think about the education our children will get and how we can plan for this.

Jesse also visited All Nations at the end of October. He attended an Open Day at this Bible College and discussed the possible options at the college for us as a family. He thought it was a good and worthwhile visit, from which we already benefit.

Starting now, we will split up our news- and prayer letter: in the newsletter you receive the general update about us and our plans once per trimester, the monthly prayer letter provides the praying partners from the prayer team with the current praise- and prayer requests. Do you wish to be part of this amazing team? Or do you just want to know more about what it means to become a prayer partner? Please, don’t hesitate to contact us.
