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 village that doesn’t have a church.

 

Tiffany

I grew 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 apart 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: Our Time in America

Teerapat Phaisarnpiwat Prayer Letter:  Our Time in AmericaGoing to America and visiting fellow brothers and sisters in Christ around the country was an honor and blessing. Thank you so much to everyone who welcomed us at their church, as well as some who welcomed us into their homes. My wife and I arrived in America not having much, and from the beginning, God provided for us exactly what we needed when we needed it, whether it was a spiritual, physical, or financial need. In addition to visiting current supporting churches, family, and friends, we had several meetings in new churches. One church increased our support; a couple decided to personally take us on for support; two churches took us on for support; and five churches showed interest in wanting to take us on for support in the future. God put the right people in our paths. We were able to raise a little more than $2,000 to go towards buying a truck. Please pray that God will give us the truck He wants us to have and that the rest of the money needed for the vehicle will be raised.

Visiting churches wasn’t our only purpose for going to America. Since our wedding was held in Thailand, we had a small second wedding to legalize our marriage in the U.S. Afterwards we began the process of changing all of Tiffany’s documents into her new name of Phaisarnpiwat. Amazingly, all of this went rather smoothly and quickly, including her passport, which came back less than two weeks after sending it out.

Soul Winning in America

After being in America for a couple of weeks, I learned how blessed America really is. Everywhere we went, I saw many churches. About as many churches you will see in America, you will see temples and pagodas in Thailand. Nearly everyone knows a little bit about Jesus, and soul winning is a lot simpler than in Thailand.

My wife and I really enjoyed being a part of the ministries in the different churches we went to. In August, we were with Pastor John Horn at a church-planters’ meeting in New York City. Pastors and some of their members from different places gathered to encourage a new church plant and go soul winning. While my wife was sharing the Gospel with a couple of people on a bench, I walked down to another bench. A young man was sitting there by himself. I asked him if he knew about God—and he did! Maybe 10 minutes later, he trusted Christ and promised to visit the new church. Every chance we got, we joined the weekend ministries and soul-winning programs of the churches that we were visiting. We are praising God for the souls saved and the many seeds planted!

Back in Thailand

In between traveling, our last two weeks were filled with preparation for returning back to Thailand. On October 19, we landed safely back in Bangkok, and that night we took a seven-hour bus trip up the mountain to MaeSot—our home. We returned just in time to partake in the last week of the mourning of the death of the Thai King. After one year of mourning, the King was cremated on October 26. Please keep Thailand in prayer, as the King’s son will be put on the throne.

Many of our church members are afraid to go to church because of the law requiring certain IDs for the Burmese people. Gospel Baptist Church still holds services on Sunday mornings and Sunday nights on the church property. On Wednesday nights, we now rotate between different church members’ homes, holding services with them since they are afraid to go out. We are also asking prayer for this situation.

Thank you for partnering with us, whether in prayer, finances, or both.

Your servants in Christ,

Teerapat and Tiffany Phaisarnpiwat
