Tales from the Journey - May2021

Dear friends,

We are in the midst of the third wave of COVID here in Thailand which is significantly worse than the first two waves. While there is slow improvement in some areas, many other areas are still not improving. Most of Thailand’s 77 provinces are requiring a 14-day self-quarantine for inter-province travel. So, we have no plans to travel outside of our province of Udon Thani. This means that we cannot go to help the Thai C&MA Nong-bua Lum-pooh Church during this time. We thank God that the CLD group at this church, lead by Max, is still meeting weekly in the evening. These 5 students are likely the future leaders of this church. Please pray for Max and this CLD group to be blessed spiritually and physically by the Lord.

SPECIAL PRAYER REQUEST:
After a month in the hospital, Kep has been transferred to Bangkok Hospital in Bangkok to prepare for a bone marrow transplant. Her brother and sister are with her to hopefully be her bone marrow donors. Please pray for God’s hand of blessing and protection to rest on her and to bring His healing through this treatment.

Ephraim is now studying online and is doing well and learning a lot each day. Mark helps him in English subjects, which he enjoys. Studying Thai language is the most difficult for Ephraim, but he is working very hard and improving with Kit’s help.

Recently, the Evangelical Fellowship of Thailand announced that all churches under their authority should shift worship services to online to help curb the spread of this wave of COVID. Please pray for churches in Thailand and especially small churches, that they would be able to shift to meeting online (including the Thai C&MA Nong-bua Lum-pooh Church and the Udon Thani City Church). Please also pray for all believers, including us, to be strong in Jesus. Jesus said, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, …who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty”. Revelation 1:8

Thank you very much for your love and prayers. May God sustain you and always be your help in every area of need.

Love and prayers,
Mark & Kit and Ephraim
