Back In Chiang Mai, Thailand

June 16 to August 8, 2009 the Burkholder family was in USA. Our primary purpose was to renew our yearly Thai visas. Needless to say our time in America included a whirlwind of activities.

MTM Pokhara, Nepal

May 15-24 IGo-MTM was on the discipleship trail once again.

MTM Needs

The vision of IGo-MTM is no longer a vision but is now a reality. The fingerprints of God are clearly upon IGO-MTM.
