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.
Projects, Journals & News
| 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.

| Sing and Make Music to the Lord

Who are they? They are teachers who live in Myanmar, but have come to Thailand to live at a school for a month during the hottest season of the year.

| Counting Steps

Over the course of the last 8 months, I’ve been counting steps. Not as a law which cannot be broken, but as a challenge to be met. I started small, and have moved my way up to meeting the goal set for me by my phone. Yes, I let my phone set a goal for me. (The phone is easier on me than I would have been on myself.)
