Tim was the vicar of Christ Church, Bangkok and Julie supported Tim in his work. They returned to the UK in June 2019 to be involved with parish ministry.
In Bangkok, Julie used her creative gifts within varied mission activities. In particular, she taught cookery and baking at NightLight, an agency which befriends women who have become entangled in Bangkok's notorious sex-trade, offering them hope and a new start. She also taught creative activities to young urban refugees, of whom there are many in Bangkok.

Welcome to the final Eady prayer letter from Bangkok!
We came to Bangkok for three years and are finally returning home nearly seven years later! Older, more experienced, yes. Wiser…? Well you can judge on this latter point.
Bangkok has been an amazing experience for us and we thank you, our prayer partners, for sharing the journey with us. Coming here in our mid-50s, after an exclusively ‘English’ ministry, was like beginning all over again but with a little bit of knowledge under our belts. We have had a real sense of building the Kingdom of God here – Julie using her creative skills to work with Thai ladies and with asylum seekers and Tim through his regular work in the church. Perhaps our experience here is best summed up by our baptisms. 95% of the baptisms at Christ Church have been adults; the vast majority have been converts from other religions. It is exciting to see the Kingdom of God growing and to feel that in some small way we have been able to make a contribution to this.
