Busy in Ministry
The last few months have been a busy time here in Thailand. In August we took over teaching our international group twice a week. On Sunday’s we teach the English Speakers Sunday School class. Then we started a Thursday night discipleship group for them at our home. It’s awesome to see the excitement they have when studying God’s Word together. This group is growing spiritually and will make a great impact for Christ around the world. Please pray for them and for the people our class is witnessing to.

In the last few months we’ve had members move to Canada and China. Both of these families have a desire to serve the Lord and to share the gospel. It’s such a blessing to be a part of teaching them and bringing them forward as they follow Christ. We’re very thankful that we are able to work with this group while also serving in the Thai ministries of Bangjak Baptist Church.
Since we moved to Thailand we’ve been working hard to connect with our neighbors and share the gospel with them. We’ve made friends with the families on both sides of us and there have been exciting steps made towards reaching them. One family has two boys who want to learn English so we’re working on getting them to come to English Outreach and hear about Jesus. Just recently we’ve been talking with another family who have a friend who became a Christian last year. They told us they want to learn about Christianity and have promised to come to church. We’re trying to meet with them and share the gospel. Please pray for our neighbors to get saved.

We’re so grateful that God has blessed Bangjak Baptist Church in the last few months with salvations and baptisms. Four individuals have accepted Christ and we’ve had six baptisms at the church. Even in the midst of COVID-19 restrictions God will build his church! Thank you for your support and prayers that make the gospel message go forward here in Thailand.  

Back to Language School
In August we were excited to have language schools re-open so that we could return to studying the Thai language. While we’ve been studying God has opened so many doors for us to witness to classmates and teachers! Please pray for our friends and teachers we’ve been witnessing and reaching out to. Also, thank you to those who are praying for our language learning. God is answering those prayers and we’re able to communicate in Thai more and more everyday.
