Tim & Martha Lin – InterVarsity Kansas



December 2017





Lin Family Update



Martha, Josiah and Hannah are about halfway through their third year of home schooling! We have been amazed at the progress that each of them are making, though as you can imagine, getting two kids to sit still for school is an everyday struggle. 


Josiah has been seeing an Occupational Therapist for help with some sensory challenges. He has been doing a great job, working hard to change from refusing to let anyone wash his hair to independently taking a shower! He loves all things Star Wars (though he has yet to see a single Star Wars movie), Legos, and construction. 


Hannah continues to love ballet and dance, and you can catch her singing along to random pop songs she overhears in a store or on the radio. She loves Moana, Frozen, and all things princess-related and also enjoys helping her mom bake and cook. She loves her big brother Josiah...and she likes all the female characters in Star Wars (though she too has yet to see a single Star Wars movie). 


We are grateful for the ways God guides and provides for our family, and we can’t wait to see what 2018 will bring!


As We Approach Year-End...

Picture3Thank you so much for your prayers and generous financial support this year! As we head into next year, my budget will increase by about $20,000 to account for additional salary and benefits costs.


As we head towards the end of 2017, would you please prayerfully consider giving a year-end gift to support the ministry in the Kansas Area? Your gifts will allow me to continue leading our team forward in ministry to students and faculty. You can use the links at the bottom of this update to give online. Thanks for your investment in our area!
