Dear Ministry Partners,

These are the kind of updates that I hate to write, but it is becoming increasingly obvious that I need to write it.  After almost 11 years on the field, we are planning a two part furlough for 2014.  The first part will be in the spring (March-June 2014) and the second part will be in the fall (September-November 2014).  We are planning a two part furlough because we do not have anyone that can watch the church for an extended period of time.  Now comes the part I do not enjoy.  After many years of inflation, a devaluing dollar, dropped and/or reduced support, we are in need of funds to purchase tickets and funds for furlough expenditures as well as several needs on the field.  The following are needs for furlough:

$6000 for tickets (About $2000 each) (spring and fall)

$2500 Rental/leased car while in the USA for March-June). (This is an estimate only)

$2000 rent an apartment while in the USA.

This is a lot of money.  As time passed saving for furlough was one of the first areas to be cut.  Anyone that would like to help can send a check to BWMOM as normal and designate it “Frederick Furlough Fund”. 

Secondly.  I plan to try to primarily visit supporting churches in the Spring and then visit new churches to raise additional support in the fall.   If anyone has a church they would like to recommend we contact to present our ministry we are happy to accept suggestions.  Churches that already support us (for which we are very grateful), I would be happy to try to work out date to give an update to your congregation.  It has been a great privilege to serve the Lord these last 11 years in Thailand.  We are looking forward to sharing what God has done and share a vision for what we hope God will do.  As the world gets darker, the light of the Gospel shines that much more brightly.  I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely in Christ,

Michael Frederick
