As always, I’m only able to be here in Thailand, living and being a part of all these amazing things because of your prayers and generosity. And that requires quite a bit of faith on my part. To be completely honest, this year has been financially very difficult. Sadly, I’ve lost supporters, donations and the cost of living has actually increased significantly each year since moving. Most months, I’ve barely had enough to cover my basics, rent, utilities and food.
As this year comes to an end, my heart’s desire is to be in a place where I don’t have to worry about my day to day needs, rather to be able to focus on the needs of those I serve. With that said, I have set a goal of raising an additional $7,500 to meet my basic financial responsibilities for the upcoming year before December. This is a modest figure, and does not cover unexpected obligations, emergencies, upcoming travel expenses or fees relating to my visa.
I would like you to consider partnering with me in my efforts to bring the love of God to a hurting world. Can I count on you to partner with me for 2020? Your one time gift or monthly commitment for the upcoming year would truly mean the world to me.

With our current barber class, I’ve decided to have our Thai staff take more of the lead with devotionals and discipleship. I’m still giving bible studies and being there to mentor the men, but it’s always been important to me and Shear Love that at some point, things could and should be led by Thai staff. And we’re pretty much there which has been so awesome and encouraging to witness. Taking this step back has also enabled me to have extra time to focus and take part in other ministry opportunities such as:

  • Lead men’s red light outreach during the first half of this year.
  • Continue to teach music to children at other organizations on Mondays and Wednesdays.
  • Become an active member of a local church, Dayspring and through their foundation, share and speak to inmates at the local prison every couple of weeks.
  • God has also opened new opportunities to do ministry through music with a friend of mine here and we’ll be traveling to Cambodia and Laos over the next 2 months for worship, music and teaching events.
