Our theme verse for deputation has been Isaiah 6:8, “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.” As we travel this great country and present in many different churches, time and time again God refreshes our desire to serve Him in Thailand. We are thankful to have such great churches praying for and supporting us. We continue to ask God to send us to the churches where He wants us to be, and we are amazed at the journey that we have been on with Him directing us.
Since our last prayer letter, the Lord has allowed us to present our ministry to many different churches, with the majority of them being Missions Conferences. This time of year gets very busy, with back-to-back conferences and much traveling, but we are thankful for the full schedule the Lord has provided! We’ve enjoyed meeting other missionaries, connecting with pastors, and fellowshipping with church families. We’ve had opportunities to preach and teach in school chapels, Sunday school classrooms, men’s meetings, and church services. While we enjoy serving any way we can while we are at a church, we most enjoy our time out soul wining with different church families. While attending a Missions Conference at Lewis Avenue Baptist Church, we had the opportunity to go soul winning with the teen group on Wednesday afternoon. While walking down the street, we met a man named Billy. He was walking home from work, and I was able to give him my testimony and tell him about Christ. After sharing the Gospel with him, he admitted that he was a sinner in need of a Saviour. That day he called upon Christ to save him. He would like to come to church, but he normally works on Sundays. Please pray that the church will be able to follow up with him and that Billy will be able to grow in the Lord.
These past weeks have been very busy, but it has been very encouraging to be with many churches that want to partner with us. Please pray for our safety as we finish out the year. Pray that the Lord will continue to raise our support and that we will fill the rest of our schedule for next year. If you know of any churches or pastors around your area that might have us present our ministry, please let me know. As we wrap up this year, we desire to be serving in Thailand more than ever. Thank you all for your prayers and support. Our desire is that we represent you and our Saviour well.
