Teerapat

I am a Thai national. My grandfather, who was an evangelist and preacher, taught me about Christ as I was growing up. When I was fourteen, I trusted Jesus as my Saviour and was baptized. Through a series of events, I finally answered God’s calling to serve Him full-time when I was 24 years old. Shortly after, I attended Gospel Baptist Bible Institute. After graduating, I continued working with Gospel Baptist Church under our missionary pastor Emmanuel Sinoy as the Thai children and youth pastor and driver. Currently we are making plans to branch out of Gospel Baptist Church to start a church for Thai people in one of the nearby villages that doesn’t have a church.

I grew up in a Christian family and always heard about Jesus and Bible stories. When I was four years old, I told my parents I wanted to get saved. That evening, my mom shared with me how to receive Jesus as my personal Saviour. The following day, I was baptized. While in high school, my church had an outreach ministry for Karen and Burmese refugees who started attending our church. I was a part of teaching them English and picking them up for church. God used this time to knit my heart with them and give me a desire to reach the Thai and Burmese people. I spent my last semester of Bible college with the Thai missionary team in Hua Hin, Thailand. While there, I visited the Sinoy family’s ministry in MaeSot. That is when I knew God wanted me to return and serve with them.  After graduating from Hyles-Anderson College in 2013, I began to raise support. In October 2014, I arrived in MaeSot, Tak, Thailand. I have been involved in the church’s children ministries – a Burmese migrant school, children’s home, and children’s Saturday and Sunday school as well as any other church programs going on. On April 15, 2017, my husband, who is on the staff at Gospel Baptist Church, and I were married.

We are serving in MaeSot on the border of Thailand and Myanmar reaching Buddhists and Muslims for Christs through soul winning, discipleship, English Bible Clubs, and church planting.

Teerapat Phaisarnpiwat Prayer Letter: Slowly Getting Back to “Normal”

Teerapat Phaisarnpiwat Prayer Letter: Slowly Getting Back to "Normal"We are so grateful to be living in a country where the COVID-19 situation has greatly improved. Besides fever checks and mask wearing in public buildings, life has slowly gone back to “normal.” Since July, we have all been meeting together for services and were even able to have a small Mother’s Day celebration. Our small building has been full nearly every service, and we are all so happy to be back together again. People are bringing their friends with them, and we are seeing people trust Christ at church and during visitation. Thank you so much for all your prayers and for those who have checked in with us to see how we are doing. Please continue to pray for our health, as rainy season always brings about different sicknesses. We would also like to ask prayer for spiritual growth in our church.

English Camp in a Public School

Last year, Gigi, one of our faithful teen girls, asked my wife for her phone number to give it to her teacher. Her English teacher had enjoyed our English Christmas activity at their school and wanted us to come back to participate in their English Camp the next school year. Her teacher kept in contact with my wife during the year. Due to COVID-19, we were unsure if the camp could still happen. Thankfully, since the situation has greatly improved, on August 27, we had wonderful time at MaeKu Noi Elementary School. The teacher told my wife we could bring our own team of teachers, lessons, and activities. Many students from the Burmese migrant school where we used to work now attend this school, as well as some of our church children. It was so great to reunite with some of our old students. My wife, a teacher from our church, and I spent the day with about 60 students. We taught them a Bible story, a Sunday school song, and a grammar lesson. Before leaving, each of the students and the teachers received a booklet that told the Gospel story, starting from Genesis. One of the teachers announced to the students that they should let us know who would like to come to church and that we would pick them up. We are so thankful for God opening doors and giving us opportunities to plant seeds and build relationships.

Bible Studies

About five years ago, I was privileged to lead a teen boy by the name of Wut to Christ. His spiritual growth was up and down for quite a while, but for about two months now, he has been coming over to our house for Bible study and discipleship every Friday and Saturday. I am enjoying seeing him understand more and more of his faith and seeing him put that faith into practice. He has a heart to serve God and reach his village for Christ. He has been leading the songs at church, and two weeks ago, he began to co-teach our teen Sunday school class with me. Please keep this young man in prayer. He is the only one in his family who has accepted Christ as his Saviour.

Visitation and COVID-19 Outreach

Saturday is our usual day to go out into the communities to visit our church families and their neighbors. Often we had enough people going out so we could split up into a ladies’ group and a men’s group. During one visit, we came upon a Christian couple whose parents were not saved. They were so excited that we had come to visit and asked me to share the Gospel with their parents. We were able to see 10 people profess faith in Christ as their Saviour, and many seeds have been planted.

Many of the families we get to know don’t have much, and due to COVID-19, life is even more difficult for them. Thanks to your generosity, we have been able to help some students with their school registration fees, school transportation fees, or purchasing their uniform. We have also helped with some medical expenses and given dry food and basic supplies to families in need.

God bless,

Teerapat and Tiffany Phaisarnpiwat
