We live amongst a tribal group known as the Dem who are located in the mountains of Southeast Asia. We are here to learn their language, translate the Bible into their language, and teach them about God. If you would you like to receive our monthly newsletter, send us an email at:

Anybody want some ice cream?

Raquel put this hairband on Dylan, and declared him a princess:)

Last weekend we went to a fun water park with another family, and Raquel had a blast after she worked up the courage to go down the slides. Once she started, we couldn't stop her.

Afterwards we went out for lunch. The Cheah's are another org family from Malaysia. They were in our class in Missouri and lived across the street from us for a while.

Before she went to sleep, Raquel made sure each of her dolls had a book (gently placed on top of their heads:)

Sick freak people

The angkots are a source of public transportation around town. They are all the same light blue color but vary as to their adornments. This is my favorite one by far. I don't know if the driver feels this way about his passengers or the other drivers around him. Maybe it's both :)

Raquel's school turned two years old this month, so they colored birthday cakes one morning.

I don't know what it takes, but eventually she falls asleep

Dylan started making this kitchen for Raquel a while ago, and we finally finished it and set it up in her room today. (Yes, she dressed herself)

Dylan's forcing me to post this picture. This is our class at school, and every week we have to give presentations. Here I am presenting last week about Asia-Pacific beliefs about pregnancy and regulations that pregnant women are supposed to follow. The other couple in our class are with MAF and my friend Heather is due next Monday with their first child.
