Default Matters and missions of the heart

Several requests here. First the mission that God has put on my heart. In regards to my getting a visa for Thailand, I have found a Christian NGO that specifically provides visa paperwork for self directed missionaries, but probably because of the flexibility that they allow, it will take quite a lot of work. Prayer for that would be appreciated. Also please pray that God will use me effectively once I get back, and Thailand and Burma in general could both do with prayer as well.
Meanwhile, I have found myself wanting to ask out someone back here in NZ. A scary if hopeful subject for which I would also appreciate prayer.
Thanks

Missed opportunities, even if they might not be such good opportunities, are nonetheless painful.
On the plus side, it draws me much closer to God.
Thanks for the prayer.
Please also pray that one won't distract me from the other.

Thanks for the prayer.
I have just heard from the NGO that I was hoping to get visa paperwork from, and they are at their capacity for supported missionaries.
I will need even more prayer for visa now.

Well, is there another organization you can approach?

An NGO I worked with before suggested just volunteering on tourist visas. These will need renewing more frequently and I'll need to be careful about my official purpose for being in Thailand, but it would probably work.
On the plus side, it may mean that I get back to Thailand sooner.

Visas for Thailand are getting more and more difficult. For me to get there and probably for any and all foreigners volunteering there is my impression.
Also my brother recently lost his flat and most of its contents.
Please pray, and also thank God that the firemen got my brother's passport out for him.
