GOD IS TRULY CHANGING LIVES IN NORTHERN THAILAND. I just finished meeting with Nong Fang and also met with Nong Ploy earlier today in preparation for a baptismal ceremony this coming Sunday. Both of these young women are the first persons in their entire families to become followers of Jesus. We first met Nong Ploy several years ago when she began studying English with us at Grace Language School. Grace Language School is one of our key platforms that we use to reach into our community here in Northern Thailand.
One of our teachers at the time, Kara Conner, had a very strong impact in her life and she and Pii Phet (Phuangphet Sombatjaroenkit) led Nong Ploy to Jesus several years ago. Nong Ploy has been studying the Bible with Pii Ja (Sutasinee Srijai) and with others since Kara returned back to America and she is now ready to follow the Lord in believers baptism.
We first met Nong Fang about a year ago when one of her friends from Happy Home began to invite her to church and then this past May 20, Nong Fang gave her heart to Jesus. Now she is ready to follow the Lord in believers baptism. What a great joy it is for me to join God in BUILDING HIS CHURCH.
Jesus said, "I will build my church and the gates of Hell will not stand against it." - Matthew 16:18
Let us be careful not to build our own kingdoms but to be intentional in joining God as He builds His Church and His Kingdom. Please also join us in prayer for Nong Ploy and Nong Fang as these 1st generation believers take this next step of baptism and as they continue to learn how to walk as salt and light before their families and friends.
It takes a lot of time and resources to build relationships of genuine trust with people but we are thankful to God for allowing us to be a small part of His plans to draw people to the cross and to a personal relationship with Jesus.
Thank you for praying for us as we seek to lead others to Jesus and disciple them. Thank you for coming on mission trips to help with God’s work.
Thank you for giving through NTIM so that we can serve here and insure that the gospel reaches into some of the least reached people groups in the world.
Your Servant to the Nations in and around Northern Thailand,
Michael for the team
