The past few months have gone by so fast since our last blogpost. After our family’s move to northern Myanmar in April, we’ve been busy getting the first KIEC building complete, hosting guests and starting our first preschool class. It’s been a whirlwind of activity! Through it all we’ve seen God’s hand guiding us and giving us opportunities to serve as well as opening our eyes for the need for growth.


As the saying goes, a picture says a thousand words so we hope the following pictures give just a brief window into the many events of joy we’ve had as we experience God’s grace and blessing on this work.

KIEC Preschool Students – First 10 Weeks

Jason Kinser takes some time away from being a college prrofessor to get into the nitty gritty of preschool education.

Sue Ellen Kinser assists KIEC during their first week of school introducing staff to Montessori methods and practices.

The center in early July. Painting work on outside and metal railing on outside almost complete.

House Family Settling In

Moving in upstairs into the center and unpacking pictures after being in storage for over two years.

Mornings tend to be cuddle and tea time with Enoch, Dad and Mommy.

Family and friends are close by and often are coming over for a visit and meal. This was a meal we had together during Austin’s birthday.

During the day, Austin teaches Ewing and Eliana homeschool upstairs while Sinte leads the preschool downstairs.

Breaks from homeschool mean garden time for Ewing to check on his eggplant, ginger and carrot plots.

Kids love the back yard with the pig house behind them.

Eliana enjoys riding her bicycle which was a gift from her grandma and shipped up to Kalay.

Enoch administers and assures the playground is always in working order.


Thank you so much for your prayers and support for Farthest Corners’ ministry.
