Gaudet Family Update – July 19, 2014

July 22 | Posted by Tom Gaudet | Gaudet Family Updates Tags:
Brethren,

We realized it has been some time since our last e-mail update. Thank you for faithfully interceding on our behalf.

The last e-mail mentioned problems with a shipment we had made from Thailand. All that worked itself out within a few anxious days. We were again reminded of how much the enemy of our souls detests the Word of God. Thank you for praying.

At this point our warehouse in Thailand is empty! All of the materials have made it to the distribution point. It was the largest shipment we had ever made, equivalent to two containers full of literature. All of the necessary funds to ship this material came in as well as enough to cover maybe even two more containers. We are rejoicing for sure.

We have already received word back from a number of brethren in Burma who write to thank the churches in the USA who have provided these Bibles, New Testaments and Gospels. Thank you for your part in it all.

Another container has now shipped from the USA! We just stand in amazement as to what the Lord has done.

Work goes on with translation and publishing in numerous languages in a number of locations. Please pray as we coordinate and facilitate all this. We are still dealing with some health related issues for both of us. At this point, we have taken a rather light schedule of reporting to supporters as we work through these issues. However, God is blessing in the meetings.

Thank you again for your support and intercession.

 

For Souls Still Waiting,

Tom and Krinny Gaudet

Gaudet Family Update – Return from Mexico & Prayer Requested

June 12 | Posted by Tom Gaudet | Gaudet Family Updates Tags:
Brethren,

I have returned from Mexico excited about what the Lord is still doing there. Thank you for your prayers for the outdoor event. It did rain quite a bit but that did not stop around 1,500 from attending on at least one day. We literally saw the rain stop just before the event started!

David Martin was detained by officials on the USA side of the border as he returned. At this point, we really do not know anything more about it, but should by tomorrow. Meanwhile, please pray.

We have experienced a problem with some of the shipping of Bibles from Thailand. At this point we are awaiting a resolution

Gaudet Family Update – Correction to Shipping Date

June 5 | Posted by Tom Gaudet | Gaudet Family Updates Tags:
Brethren,

In our last update, I erroneously reported that the rescheduled shipment of Bibles from Thailand would be on June 14. I was in a hurry when I wrote that! Actually the shipment is scheduled for THIS SATURDAY, June 7th.

Please pray, These materials have been in storage far too long, especially since brethren are standing by waiting on them. Our Lord really used churches in the USA to make provision, not only for the printing but also for the cost of trans-shipping.

I am writing this from Chiapas, Mexico where the brethren here are celebrating 50 years of independent Baptist history among several of the Indian tribes.

Thank you for your intercession. Milton Martin’s ministry in southern Mexico. The largest facility available in the city has been rented by the Mexican brethren. Rainy season has already started so they are very concerned that the event will be disrupted. The facility will accommodate over 4,000 and brethren are traveling from many of the churches which have been started. Also a good sized contingent is also traveling from the USA as well as several Latin American countries.

Please pray that this celebration would not be disrupted by the weather. Pray also for Bro. Martins’ health and stamina. It will be a tremendous encouragement to everyone involved. Pray also for Mrs. Martin as she is unable to attend. I will be working with several others to film, photograph, and otherwise document the proceedings.

Also, please pray for our health as well as our time here in the USA. Both of us have health issues for which we need to find solutions. I have finally gotten an appointment with a rheumatologist later this month and hope to get some answers to difficulties I have been having. Pray for Krinny also as we deal with some similar issues with her.

It is such a blessing to know that many of you are faithfully praying for the work and this missionary family. Thank you in Jesus’ Name!

Gaudet Family Update – Shipping again & Mexico Travel

June 3 | Posted by Tom Gaudet | Gaudet Family Updates Tags:
Brethren,

Please allow us to bring you up to date with a couple of matters for which we request your intercession.

You are aware of the problems we encountered a couple of weeks ago with making a shipment from Thailand. Due to the military coup in the country, the border area was closed temporarily. News from the region leads us to believe that it is now possible to make that shipment.

Therefore, it is now scheduled for June 14th. We would like to ask you to pray that this will occur without interruption. The Bibles are needed and we need to get them out of our facility. Missionary Nat Williams is coordinating this with our coworkers and brethren inside Burma to facilitate this shipment. Please pray!

I am scheduled to depart early tomorrow morning to participate in the 50th anniversary celebration of missionary Milton Martin’s ministry in southern Mexico. The largest facility available in the city has been rented by the Mexican brethren. Rainy season has already started so they are very concerned that the event will be disrupted. The facility will accommodate over 4,000 and brethren are traveling from many of the churches which have been started. Also a good sized contingent is also traveling from the USA as well as several Latin American countries.

Please pray that this celebration would not be disrupted by the weather. Pray also for Bro. Martins’ health and stamina. It will be a tremendous encouragement to everyone involved. Pray also for Mrs. Martin as she is unable to attend. I will be working with several others to film, photograph, and otherwise document the proceedings.

Also, please pray for our health as well as our time here in the USA. Both of us have health issues for which we need to find solutions. I have finally gotten an appointment with a rheumatologist later this month and hope to get some answers to difficulties I have been having. Pray for Krinny also as we deal with some similar issues with her.

It is such a blessing to know that many of you are faithfully praying for the work and this missionary family. Thank you in Jesus’ Name!

Gaudet Family Update – Shipping Status

May 29 | Posted by Tom Gaudet | Gaudet Family Updates Tags:
Brethren,

In our last update we asked prayer for and mentioned we could not predict how the military coup in Thailand would affect a shipment scheduled for this weekend. Well, we know now! Once everyone had traveled to the staging area they learned that the way to the destination had been shut down by the military.

Brethren there will continue to monitor the situation and we will let you know when the restrictions have been lifted. We are so grateful for brethern who travelled to the border area from both countries to facilitae this, but they are going home empty handed at this point. Please continue to pray!

Gaudet Family Update – Prayer Requested for Shipment, etc…

May 22 | Posted by Tom Gaudet | Gaudet Family Updates Tags:

Brethren,

Thank you for your faithful intercession for this work. As you know we are in the USA at present. We are enjoying the time with brethren here. Our Lord provided through His churches and we now have the funds to trans-ship all of the materials in our Thailand depots. Please pray as this Saturday we have scheduled the single largest shipment to date!

Missionary Nat Williams has graciously agreed to work with our local co-workers to facilitate this shipment. All of this requires travel, as well as quite a bit of coordination to make it all happen. Please pray for the brethren traveling from Burma as well and that all would go according to His will.

As many of you already know, Thailand’s political situation has now escalated into a military coup. There is a nationwide curfew in place as well as an announcement that the Internet would be turned off to the country. No one knows what will happen next.

Please pray for the nation and her people as well as the safety and effectiveness of the missionaries. How this might affect the abovementioned shipment is anyone’s guess at this point. Please pray!

Tom and Krinny Gaudet

Gaudet Family Update – Update and New Prayer Letter

April 17 | Posted by Tom Gaudet | Gaudet Family Updates Tags:
Brethren,

It is such a blessing being in the churches here in the USA. Of course, the fellowship is sweet in our own home church where we are renewing relations with those we have known for years and meeting new families. I have made a couple of trips out of state to visit supporters. Krinny is still passing kidney stones and not yet able to travel. Please keep her health in your prayers. She has been battling this for over two months at this point.

I am to scheduled for a one week trip to MN and ND beginning tomorrow. I would appreciate your prayers for that trip and for Krinny while I am away.

We have just posted our latest Prayer Letter. Click here to download it. Thank you so much for each of you who pray and give so that this ministry can go forward. We are grateful.

Gaudet Family Update – Gaudets in Texas

March 19 | Posted by Tom Gaudet | Gaudet Family Updates Tags:
Brethren,We are acclimating to the climate and time zones change pretty well now. It is hard to believe we have been in the USA already for over two weeks. Krinny is still experiencing health problems, but to a lesser degree. Thank you so much for your faithful intercession.

Please pray as we get started with meetings in churches. Next week I will be in MD for a missions conference, and I am scheduling now for the time we are here.

Buried in the original Update announcing Krinny’s hospitalization was a link pointing to an important video with testimonies of men in Burma who have used the Bibles and scripture portions we have been sending. Some 24 testimonies were recorded. I had only ever met 5 of these men before. All of them volunteered to be recorded when they found out that in this manner they could talk to the brethren in the USA who have provided for the publication and shipping of the Scriptures in their language.

Here is the link for that video again: Link If you are unable to view or download it, please let us know. We are keenly aware that some of you require a physical DVD disk. Over the years, as video on the internet has become more efficient, it has become less necessary for us to send DVD’s to everyone on our list. So we are going change to this method: We will send them only to those who need physical media.

Please reply to this e-mail with a request for a DVD and it will be sent to you, of course at no cost. Many churches show these videos in their services and have told us it is a blessing to their people. We want as many as possible to be able to view these videos.

Thanks to each of you who stand with us in any manner as we continue in this work. It would not be possible without you.

Gaudet Family Update – Gaudets in Texas

March 10 | Posted by Tom Gaudet | Gaudet Family Updates Tags:
Brethren,

We have safely arrived in the USA and are getting adjusted to the time changes. Krinny did well on the trip and is still following what the Dr’s said to do. Since we were delayed in departing Thailand due to Krinny’s bout with kidney stones we are somewhat maxed out preparing for some upcoming meetings as well as simply taking care of things on this end. We are grateful for all who intercede for us through these days.

Work on several fronts continue while we are in the USA. Please continue to pray for the work while we are away. The Hmong brethren who have worked alongside us for the past three years are now working out of an office at the home of the Lange family. They are actually finished with the translation of the Bible institute curriculum but are now editing and reviewing the work. We expect this to take several more months.

We still have a large amount of Burmese scriptures in our warehouses in Thailand awaiting funds to ship. We just received a request for 10,000 Bibles in a language which we do not have. It is humbling to know that so many needs are in the region. Also, several translation projects are underway in Burma. The need is great. We must publish or they will perish! Please pray.

In an earlier update, we mentioned a missionary friend in Thailand, Butch Krenz. Due to some unusual circumstances he is has been mostly without help during a serious illness. His passport is being held in one hospital due to a large bill for treatment and he is in a governmental hospital at this time. He is unable to take care of basic matters by himself. Thankfully a number of missionaries have stepped in and are trying to help him at this time. Some who receive these Updates are sending funds to help him. If you would like to know more, let me know.

Thank you for praying and standing with us. Many of you wrote during these past few weeks while Krinny was ill and we were standing by for the flight back to the USA. It is a great encouragement to know how much you care.

 

For Souls Still Waiting,

Tom and Krinny Gaudet
