20180717 Bartleet Family 7 copy 2As we begin to think and plan ahead for our upcoming home assignment many of our Thai friends and acquaintances in our village have been asking if we will be coming back after our time in Australia. This is a difficult question to answer as our financial support is low and at this stage, it does not look likely that we will be able to raise the required support, especially in light of the economic hardships due to COVID.

As I have answered this question about our possible return I have shared with each person who has asked that ‘ I am hoping to return but I am not sure as our financial support for us to live and work in Thailand is low and if we do not get the required funding we will not be able to return.’ I have been greatly encouraged to have a number of my Thai friends who are not yet believers say to me that I should ask God. They have stated this very matter of factly as if they know He can provide, even though they are still discovering who He is.

Our God is Jehovah Jireh and we have seen him provide a miracle in terms of our financial support before. We do not want to limit him and we do believe as Ephesians 3:20 says ‘He is able to do immeasurably more than we ask or imagine....’

What a witness it would be to these Thai’s if we are able to return and give God glory for His abundant provision. Please pray for us to continue to be a witness to our Thai friends of God’s provision to us in all aspects of our lives over the next few months until we return to Australia for what will hopefully just be a home assignment.
