It has been an incredible journey thus far in Thailand, so here is an update on whats been happening this past month in this new year!
It has been a privilege to be a part of the baptisms of some of our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ here in Thailand. In total, five people were baptized into Christ family this month, and was able to share their testimony to people who have not known Christ yet. Both Hope Center, and Bethel Church came together to celebrate this joyful event. Let’s hope and pray for more of these celebrations to take place in the new year!
Phanit Nahkom “The Garden of Eden Farm”
My Trek team and I got an opportunity to go to Phanit Nahkom and work on a farm. For five days we got our hands in the dirt, putting up fences, digging holes, cutting grass, etc. It was a great way to bless some of the other ministries outside of Chachoengsao. The pastor who owned the farm, calling it “The Garden of Eden” was pleased to have us, and let us be a apart of his farm life, church, and family. It is a joy to see God provide for this faithful family, and church with all their needs, which encouraged us to have faith in Our God with our ministries in Chachoengsao. Their passion to share God’s word is inspiring. Not only do they use the farm as a retreat center, they also broadcast Christian music and the message of the gossip over the radio. Always looking to share their faith, there is nothing stopping the gospel when it comes to this family, and church – pray that is passion flares all over Thailand. Also pray for God to continue to bless this family.
We took a little adventure down south to go up in the mountains too a school. The reason this trip took place was out of the Buddhists belief that by supporting schools they would earn merit for a better reincarnation. However we did not have the same intentions, and so we went to be light for the people there. It was a long over night drive, and a challenge to stay awake during the events at the school. Yet we pulled it together and preformed a drime, and at first they said we would not have enough time to explain it. However after the performance every one was eager to understand what it meant, and therefore one of the Thai people went out and explained its meaning – sharing the gospel to all who were there. We do not know if any seeds were planted, however we have hope that one day some fruit will grow. Please pray that seeds may be cultivated, and grown for God’s kingdom.
