Pregnant
We’d also like to announce that we are having another baby! Anne is 9 weeks pregnant, and the baby is due in late May 2009. So, Samantha and Baby Sanborn will be almost exactly 2 years apart. We wondered for so long if we would even be blessed with one child and now we get to have two. We’re very excited about this new miracle God is giving us.

What's over there?

Samantha
Samantha is growing so fast. She's already 18 months old! She is constantly talking - though half the time we can't understand her. She is very outgoing and loves going around and turning strangers into friends. She's very precocious and once she gets the vocabulary down, I think she's gonna be a manager! She also loves running and climbing. We can’t keep this kid down.

Did I do That?

Oregon Team
Lately Sean has been leading a team from Salem, OR. They've been very helpful around the church, coffee shop and even helping us around our house - can you say, new carport? Sean and the team visited 4 of our daughter churches and helped Home of Joy orphanage.

Revival
One of the villages, Tung Daeng Prao, is beginning to see a revival. Over a year ago a revival broke out amongst the Karen in the Om Koi area. They started telling others about their experiences. One of those villages that they visited is a Lahu village named Nong Kiew. It is where Sean’s parents Art and Ellen Sanborn planted their first church.

Now, all these years later they are experiencing a revival and wanted to share their experiences with others, so they visited our daughter church in Tung Daeng Prao. It’s amazing how things circle back around.

The team had lots of fun with the
children of Bethlehem village

The team got to experience part of the revival there. There are many things to share. For instance, even though many of the villagers are illiterate, one woman spent 2 months fasting and praying, and now she can miraculously read. She reads her Bible to her family early every morning.

The above woman with the pink skirt can now read.

Every Sunday morning the nearby dam opens its flood gates a bit and lots of fish come rushing out. Therefore the villagers used to skip church. After being challenged about it by other villagers (not by us) they stopped fishing on Sunday. Miraculously their fish and income levels have doubled. Now they are tithing so much that they have accumulated 10% of what they need to build a new church, which they want to use as a place of ministry for other nearby villages.

One evening our team witnessed a time of corporate repentance and what people said was a visitation from angels. All over the north, we are seeing this kind of revival among the hill tribes. And it's being lead by the children and youth. They are waking early each morning to pray, and fast together, and then hold meetings till late in the evening. Many are having visions of heaven and angels. We are in a time of preparation for revival in Thailand. Prophetic words say that revival will come from the North of Thailand - the Hills - and spread like a fire throughout the nation and region.

.

Please pray that the Thai church will be able to let go of their concept of “known forms & traditions,” and of “losing face” so that they can experience the freedom and refreshing that is unfolding in the hill-tribes. Thailand is still an unreached nation. Less than 1% of Thai's have given their hearts to Jesus (as opposed to 10% of hill tribes - which is why revival is coming from the hills).

Please keep praying with us and labouring with us so that we will see God's plan for this people and this nation fulfilled. Pray that religious “institutions” will not try to get hold of this move of God and control/ contain/ squelch it. One of the Major reasons why the hill tribes are experiencing revival is because they are not steeped on traditions, “proper” forms of worship, or institutional “guidelines.”

Pray for us

Cancer
In June an Oncologist told Sean’s dad (Art Sanborn) that he had stage 1 leukemia and less than 8 years to live. Of course, we considered this to be another challenge to pray hard. Four months later they took Art to a recommended specialist and the doctor gave a more optimistic prognosis. He said that Art has at least 10 years at the current growth rate. Please join us in praying that the cancer disappears entirely.

Furlough
In January 2009, we will be making a trip to the USA for a short furlough. We plan to be in Florida (East Coast) all of January, then make our way to the West Coast for World Outreach Week at Central Christian Church, San Jose, CA. We’ll be at CCC for the first 1-2 weeks of February. We hope to be able to travel to see friends on the West Coast. Originally, we intended to stay in the USA for 6 months and travel extensively, but with Baby Sanborn on the way, we’re not sure how much Anne can travel. We may decide to cut the trip short in order to return to Chiang Mai to give birth. Please pray for us as we try to figure this all out.

Finances:
  • The Thai Economy is undergoing dramatic inflation (cost of rice jumped 30% in a week). The $US is worth 1/3 less against the Thai Baht. We are finding it difficult to cover monthly expenses. Please help.
