Dennis' Upcoming Trip To Hua Hin, Thailand

Dear Friends and Partners in Christ!
Thanks for praying for Susy and her ministry trip to Thailand.  Her time of ministry was extremely fruitful.  She is back home now with David and I, while I make plans to travel to Hua Hin for a month of ministry work there, leaving on May 15th and returning June 14th.
We are so blessed and encouraged to see what God does each time we go to Hua Hin to minister, either separately or together.  The open doors and hearts that He leads us to and through are truly amazing.
So many lost souls have already come to know Christ during our times of ministry there, and we are beginning to identify some of the faithful and hungry believers in Hua Hin who we will be able to work with in the coming months and years to make a great impact for Christ in that city and region and to the South of Thailand, extending even to the surrounding countries of Southeast Asia.
We want to not only continue to win souls ourselves, but to challenge, teach and train existing believers to do the same.  We also want to encourage and help pastors and Church leaders to reach out and multiply and even plant new Churches so that more and more precious Thai people can come to know Jesus Christ.
Susy and I see and believe that the fields are ripe for harvest, and we are laboring to see the workers go into the harvest fields each day.  We know that the hearts of people are empty and ready to be filled with the love of God as the Gospel is shared with them in a relevant and loving manner, and we are laboring to help the Thai Churches and believers to see  and experience the same truth.
We desire to see every person living in and visiting Hua Hin to hear about the love of Jesus and have an opportunity to believe in Him and receive Him as their personal Lord and Savior.
This is our desire for every Thai person, every English speaking foreigner, as well as the many Burmese, Nepali and Indian people living and working in Hua Hin.
During my upcoming trip to Thailand, I will be working with a fairly new English speaking International Church in Hua Hin.  They have asked me to help them in the areas of preaching and teaching  the Word of God as well as training them in personal soulwinning and Church growth.
I am excited about this opportunity, since they are so young and hungry and desire to reach out in various ways so that everyone can come to know the Lord.  Please pray for their openness to receive the Word of God as the Holy Spirit directs us.
I will also be working with the Thai Churches in preaching, teaching and training believers to win souls in their daily lives as I have opportunity.
And of course, I will be doing that which I love to do the most, I will be out among the lost each day in the streets and marketplaces distributing literature and praying for people and with people to receive Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior.
Thank you in advance for praying for all aspects of my upcoming trip, and for God’s provision in every area, and for my sensitivity and obedience to the Holy Spirit, as He guides, directs and empowers me each and every moment of each day.
In closing, I want to mention the new book that David and I worked on while Susy was in Thailand.  After our discussions and planning, we have decided to wait until we get clearer direction from the Lord before we go any further.
It may be that the content of the book may be developed as a seminar and then later turn into a book and even a curriculum for teaching and training believers in service for the Lord.
We will keep you posted concerning this project as we know more and when we resume working on it.  We know that God will direct us and make everything clear, then it will be worth doing. 
Thank you so much for your prayers and support for Susy, David Thomas and I and for our ministry outreach in Thailand and around the world.  You are all so precious and important to us.  May the Lord continue to bless each of you in every way.
We love and appreciate you all!
Dennis, Susy and David Thomas
