March was an exciting month, as Independent Baptist Church of Hua Hin had its first Summer Program. Our three-week program, “Bringing Others to the Saviour,” started on March 1. We were privileged to have Dr. Mark Bosje (director of FBMI) and three pastors from America—Bro. Danny Allen, Bro. Warren Johnson, and Bro. Steve Hobbins—for that first Sunday. God blessed our staff and members as they worked together and brought 55 first-time visitors. Souls were saved and baptized, and folks walked away excited for the next week!
The second week we had veteran missionary, Dr. Philip Pope, along with his wife and son, and Pastor Santisuk (a pastor in Korat, Thailand, who was reached by our Thai pastor, Bro. Sakrapee, and later influenced by Bro. Philip Pope). Our members and visitors alike enjoyed hearing the testimony of Pastor Santisuk and how the Lord worked on his heart through Bro. Sakrapee’s witness and brought him to believe in Jesus.
Week three of the program, our special speaker was Missionary Phitak Jomhong (Bro. Sakrapee’s older brother). Our church has supported Pastor Jomhong for several years now. It was a joy to hear how the Lord is blessing his faithfulness in the ministry.
We had a total of 109 first-time adult visitors during the program. Please pray as we follow up on these converts and encourage them to continue coming to church.
It is our goal, as a church and team, for each visitor to receive a follow-up visit from one of our staff/team members. We are keeping records of each visit and praying that God will open doors for us to teach and train many more for His work.
God has allowed our team and church to lead over 260 souls to Christ this month through personal soul winning and visitation. It is a privilege to serve the Lord where He has called us, and Team Thailand is honored to represent you in this part of Southeast Asia.
Thank you for your faithful support and prayers!
