Adam and Ayla Cottrell are missionaries in Bangkok, Thailand, sent out of Cherry Street Baptist Church in Springfield, Missouri.  They have a one year son named Jaxton. The Cottrell’s arrived in Thailand in December 2019, and pray to be used of God to see many Thai souls saved, decipled, and men trained up to start churches all around the city.

They are currently serving at Bangjak Baptist Church with veteran missionaries Ricky and Tammy Salmon while they learn the language, and the ministry.

Ministry Update
What an exciting, but overwhelming time here in Bangkok. Every Wednesday evening, we continue to have our English International Group over to our house for a weekly bible study. We have three new faithful attendees! Two of which are saved, but one is not. Please pray for clarity and understanding for each of them as we dive into God’s Word together on a weekly basis.

Adam continues to minister to our soccer kids on Saturday afternoon. We have an average of 10-15 kids come weekly to practice soccer and hear a bible lesson. As Adam teaches in Thai, along with the help of one of our young adults, Master, we are seeing God’s Word prick at each heart. Please pray that these kids come to know the Lord as their Savior.

 Our English language classes on Saturday evening continue. Oat, one of Adam’s students, is now attending English morning worship service as well as morning bible study. He is asking many questions. He understands the gospel and the decision whether to accept Christ as the ONLY way to heaven is weighing heavily on his heart. Please pray he comes to know Jesus as his Savior soon.

We are also blessed to be involved in the planning and prep of outreach events at Bentai Baptist Church. Shane and Kayti Salmon, along with an amazing launch team have done a great job reaching the community of Samut Prakan. This last month the outreach activity was family DIY classes. Adam has been able to help prep many projects ahead of time. Many families and kids have attended morning worship service because of these events.
Family Update

Thank you so much for praying for the ministries here in Bangkok. With a heavy heart, we ask that you also please pray for our team here, specifically Ricky Salmon and his wife Tammy. Ricky was diagnosed with multiple myeloma mid-June. He is undergoing chemo weekly as well as battling with low kidney function resulting from the cancer. Please pray that the doctors here are wise and do what is best for Bro. Ricky to recover quickly and completely. We know that the Lord is in control and that His power and comfort is all we need. Please pray for the people of Bangjak Baptist Church as well as the missionaries that band together to fill in and serve where needed
