Staying In Touch From Thailand - June 2011

Dear Friends and Partners in Christ!

We trust that each of you are doing well in the Lord.  All is well with us here in Thailand and with our son, David Thomas, in Ohio.  PTL!
Our hearts are filled with gratitude toward God, as we continue to draw near to Him to hear His Voice and to do His Will.  His grace and peace and love are being ministered to us in abundance by the Holy Spirit.
He is working all things together for our good, as we are being conformed into the image of His Son, Jesus.  His Word is working mightily in us and through us, and He is meeting all of our needs according to His riches in Glory by Christ Jesus.
We have been in Thailand a little over five weeks now, and are planning in the Lord to be here another eight weeks or so, that is as of June 14 when I am writing this.  We are so thankful to God for opening many doors for us to preach and teach and share the Unsearchable Riches of Jesus Christ with other people.
We have preached twelve times so far in four Thai Churches and two English speaking fellowships and at Southern Theological Institute in Prachuap Khirikhan, which is a four year Thai Bible College about an hour and a half South of Hua Hin. 
Most of the time we have ministered together, but on a couple of Sundays, Susy has spoken at one Church in Thai and me at another in English.  We have been blessed by the response from the people, with some praying to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior for the first time.
The emphasis of our preaching and teaching so far has been on evangelism and discipleship.  There is such a great need among the Churches and believers here to reach out to the masses of unsaved people who they are around every day in their homes and where they work.
We are trying  to help them see people from God’s perspective and how valuable every lost soul is, and that they have a responsibility and ability to reach out to them with the Gospel, so they can hear and put their trust in Christ.
Some believers are responding to the message and seem hungry to know more and seem ready to embrace their responsibility to share Christ with others.  Susy has also been sharing with a group of Thai Christian ladies each week, and we are working with others on a one on one basis as we can.
The Training Seminars in individual Churches has not yet worked out as I thought they would.  Instead, we along with David and Pamela Hall, are presenting an all day Regional Christian Conference, entitled “Radical Discipleship and Power Evangelism”. 
Please pray for this 12 hour Conference which will be held on Monday, July 18, and will be presented in both English and Thai languages for local and International believers.  We are expecting participants from all Churches in Hua Hin and surrounding cities and even from other nearby Provinces.
The Church we are meeting at has a seating capacity of 120, so we are praying for at least that number of believers to attend.  This will be the first event of this type in this part of Thailand and will be a beginning at bringing Churches and believers together in unity of purpose and spirit.
Please pray for Susy and myself, as well as David and Pamela and Pastors Nippon and Khampee, to be led by the Holy Spirit in everything we say and do.  Pray also for every attendee to have ears to hear what the Holy Spirit is saying to the Church in Thailand at this time.
We are expecting revelation and breakthrough in the hearts and minds of all of us attending this Conference, and that God will raise up an army of Radical Disciples of Jesus Christ to move out into the streets and homes and marketplaces where the lost souls live and work, armed with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, proclaiming Him to all who will hear and believe, by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Your prayers and support in all of this are so important and powerful.  You are a blessing to us!
We love and appreciate you all!
