June 2020 Ministry Update

Dear friends,

Ezra 8:22, “The gracious hand of our God is on everyone who looks to him…” has greatly encouraged us to keep praying with great hope for God to overcome this COVID-19 crisis. The situation in Thailand is getting better, even though the Thai government continues to maintain the state of emergency until at least the end of June. They have begun to loosen some restrictions, such as now allowing travel between provinces. We are moving forward in our ministry plans and we rejoice in the Lord that many churches are beginning to open.

CLD Ministry: June 9-11 will be a CLD Level 2 Center Leader Training which will focus on training the current Center Leaders in coaching skills. There will be 6 CLD Center Leaders from 4 different churches. Please pray for God to bless with safe travels and effective training while maintaining the government’s COVID guidelines.

We are rejoicing with Nutt in the birth of her daughter, Melody. Melody is now 3 months old and is getting big and so cute now. Nutt has returned to work with CLD. Please pray for God to give strength to Nutt and her husband, Bert, as they both work and help each other care for Melody.

Opening for Sunday Worship Services: Most churches in Thailand are now allowed to open while maintaining social distancing, wearing masks, using hand sanitizer, etc. The Udon Thani City Church (C&MA) has been opened since the second Sunday in May, however children and the elderly are still not allowed to join. So, for us, only Mark can attend this church at this time. We still have a desire to see this church become a healthy church someday and continue to look to God for help. Many people still have some deep wounds and there is a need for reconciliation within this church. Please pray for God to bring revival and healing. God “forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases” (Psalm 103:3).

Local government workers come to check temperatures, register attendees and make sure everything is in order every Sunday morning at the Udon Thani City Church. People wear masks and sit far apart with the windows open for ventilation.

The Nong-bua Lum-pooh C&MA Church just opened this past Sunday, June 7th. We rejoice in the Lord for increasing the number of new believers, even during this COVID pandemic. Please pray for God to continually bless and guide Pastor Don and us as we make plans for ministry.

Driving school is open: June 15-17 Kit will be attending a local driving school and will have 10 hours of supervised driving practice. Please pray for Kit to gain confidence and be a safe driver.

Thank you very much for your faithful prayers and support by giving to the Great Commission Fund. May the joy of the Lord be our strength always!

Love in Jesus Christ,
Mark & Kit and Ephraim
