Debby and Kyle serve the Thai Karen Baptist Convention (TKBC) Siloam Bible Institute in Chiang Mai, Thailand, where they work in pastoral education and leadership development. Young people from the Karen ethnic group attend the school with the goal of following the call of God on their lives to be pastors and evangelists among the Karen villages in the hills of Thailand. Kyle is also involved in continuing education with TKBC pastors and evangelists. Debby is providing worship leadership to conferences in the area and helping with the English language program at Siloam. The Witmers continue discipleship with their own children through homeschooling.

| Big Changes are Coming – Preparing for US Assignment

It’s hard to believe that in just over two months our family will find ourselves relocated back in the US for our one-year home assignment.

| A Glimpse into the Life of an MK (Julia Witmer)

I’ve probably said this a hundred times, and I’ll say it a hundred more — saying goodbye to friends is really, really hard.

| Pressing On to Know Him
| The DOs and DON’Ts of Talking to MKs – Guest Post by Julia Witmer
| Saying Goodbyes – Guest post by Emma Witmer

We invited our children to create their own post to share with all of you. Yesterday, Emma (our youngest at 12 years old) took us up on the offer, and this is the post she has created. The subject may not seem very “seasonal,” but it is something that is really on her heart right now as she faces some tough situations. Hopefully her writing will give you a glimpse into the life of an ex-pat kid. And thankfully, Emma is learning what we all need to remember – we have a Wonderful Savior, Emmanuel “God with us,” to whom we will never have to say good-bye.

| Lost in Bangkok – Lessons in Discipleship

Towards the beginning of August, our family was involved in a conference in Cha-am, which is south of Bangkok.
