Greetings in the Lord from Thailand! We are working on a new prayer letter, but wanted to send out a quick update and prayer request for you now.
“The Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; he will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed” (Deuteronomy 31:8). This verse is very encouraging to us right now. As you may know, we’ve finished our allotted time for full-time Thai language study and are now shifting our focus onto the ministries of evangelism and church planting. We’re planning to reach out to university students through the bridge of teaching English. This age group is most interested in learning English and also most receptive to the gospel message. In order to be most effective in this ministry, we feel it’s important to move closer to one of the universities surrounding Chiang Mai. This is where the need for prayer comes in. At this point, we’re considering two different universities located on opposite sides of the city. To our knowledge, there are not English ministries specifically targeting either of these schools. Also, there is a possibility of volunteering in the English departments at both universities. Another factor is housing nearby the two schools. We’ve found a possible rental house near one school and are still looking for housing close to the other university.
So, where do we go? We feel that God is opening doors at both locations, but are really seeking His leading as we make some big decisions in the coming weeks. Thanks for partnering with us in prayer as we wait on the Lord. We are confident that He will lead in His timing. We’ll keep you posted on what happens!
