God is doing incredible things, and has placed a very exciting opportunity on our hearts. The day before Ricky Sanchez visited our church, we were watching TV and a commercial came up about Thailand. We both said ‘hey we should do a missions trip there!’ Well, the very next morning we went to church and can you believe it!!! Ricky Sanchez came to share and invite our church to do a mission’s trip to Thailand. We laughed, looked at each other and said ‘WE’RE GOING TO THAILAND’ We were so excited about going, but as time passed and life got in the way, we lost track of what we felt God had told us to do. We have had a rough few weeks but continued to pray about this trip. Wicus felt strongly that God would not change His mind once He had laid this on our hearts to go. We felt unsure at times, but God soon intervened and through friends and prayer, He reminded us that we have been called to go, share the gospel and love on His people. We are SO excited! This has been a growing experience as we humble ourselves to ask for your help to financially assist us in making this happen. The plan: The Bridge Bible Church is taking a team of 24 people to Chon-Buri, Thailand to build a playground for Abundant Life Home Orphanage. We currently support Ricky & Karen Sanchez who are missionaries to Thailand. Ricky is a part of the church planting and leadership in all of Thailand. Karen oversees all operations of the orphanage. Thailand has a large population of people diagnosed with AIDS, largely because of the sex slave industry. Abundant Life houses 22 orphans who are HIV+ in 4 family units. The Bridge is partnering with Kids Around the World to purchase, ship, and install the playground. The playground we have purchased is the largest KATW has ever installed, and it’s the only playground within a 7 mile radius of the orphanage. Not only will the orphanage be blessed by the playground, but they are also excited for the opportunity to reach out and minister to the surrounding community. We are going to Thailand November 8-18th, which is RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER! There are a couple ways you can help us and our team prepare. ✓ PRAY! PRAY! PRAY! Our efforts are absolutely pointless unless they are offered to God. Please pray that God’s blessing, provision, and protection is over our trip. We would appreciate your prayers before, during, and even after our trip. The more prayer the better! ✓FINANCIAL SUPPORT The trip will cost about $2,600 for each team member. If you are in a place where you can give, we would greatly appreciate any contribution. There is no minimum or maximum, whatever amount God has put on your heart. We have included a stamped and addressed envelope; feel free to use it to send in your support. Make all checks out to “The Bridge Bible Church”, and write ‘Postma’s Thailand Trip’ in the memo. Thanks you for taking the time to consider supporting us. We are so excited to go to Thailand, and are so thankful and encouraged by those who are supporting our every step of the way. We can’t wait to share pictures and stories when we get back! Feel free to contact us with any questions, or would like to hear more about our trip. Sincerely, Wicus & Michelle Postma W - 6614779616 M - 6612819899
