How does God lead His followers to join in His work? It starts as a burden. Some Thai believers from a large CMA church in Bangkok had a burden to help us do an outreach in our town. They planned and fasted and prayed. When the day came it was pouring rain at our house – a problem when the ministry was to be a prayer and evangelism walk on the way to various homes to share testimonies with seekers. We prayed, and by the time we got to the church, the skies were blue. We had planned to meet Chim, a brand new believer, at the home of Nun, but Nun was sick so they ended up going to Chim’s house. While wondering why God allowed Nun, a core believer in our church, to be sick on the day of our big outreach, I learned that Chim’s sister, Noi, was at home and ended up accepting Christ during the visit! Meanwhile, some of the others went to visit Nought. Nought has been coming to church for about a month at the insistence of his family, who, while Buddhist, believe that the Church could help him with his drug addiction. Well, after that visit, his Aunt Ta prayed to receive Christ, and a few days later Nought chose to follow Jesus as well. In addition to these three new believers, the group from Bangkok also introduced us to Ter, a Christian woman they knew who had been living in the area for some time without a church to attend….until now that is! “The evangelization of the world waits not on the readiness of God but on the obedience of Christians.” –Bill M. Sullivan

Praise God for these 4 new additions to our little church, and for the group of Thai believers from Bangkok who listened to the burden God placed on their hearts to come share their faith in Baan Paeo!

Pray for Thai people who have just come out of year of official mourning after the death of their beloved King. The anniversary of his death this last month and the official funeral has been a time of deep sadness, and we pray for the Thai people to come to find comfort in God. “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” (Psalms 34:18)

Please pray that God will free Nought from his bondage to drugs. Pray that God will strengthen the new faith of Nought, Noi, and Ta.

We are excited about a team from Glenview Alliance Church coming to serve with us from November 2-14. Pray that God will use this ministry for His glory.
