Another Awesome Month Of Ministry In Hua Hin, Thailand

Greetings in the Wonderful and Powerful Name of Jesus!
Thanks to each of you who have been faithfully praying for us and for the people of Hua Hin, Thailand.  God is certainly answering prayer for open doors and for the salvation of souls and for the expansion and growth of the Kingdom of God here in Hua Hin.
This is a picture of Sister Pan, our new sister in Christ.  We had met a Christian girl named Tik, who was working in a local café.  As we were visiting her and praying for her and sharing the Word of God with her, her co-worker, Pan, was watching and listening to us.  When we noticed her at the café, we introduced ourselves to her and Susy began sharing Christ with her.
Pan let us know that she had been to Church several times with Tik and that the Pastor had come to visit her at work and talked to her about Jesus, but she made it clear to us that she was not interested.
Susy continued to talk with her and get to know her and shared with her how God had changed her life 23 years earlier when she received Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior and how her entire family came to Christ.
I continued to pray while Susy shared in Thai with her and we could really sense the Holy Spirit opening her heart to the Gospel.  To make a long story short, Pan gave her life to Christ that morning and was radically changed by Jesus.  She was so blessed and wept and wept with tears of joy, as she sensed the power and presence of God in her life.  She began going to Church and then her teenage daughter received Christ that day.  Please pray for her husband to also be saved and the remaining members of her family.  Praise the Lord!
This is a photo of our new sister in Christ, Nok.  I was walking down the aisle of a bunch of kisosks in a shopping center one day, and giving out tracts.  I laid one on a counter behind a lady who had been praying to an idol for a long time. 
As I walked on, Nok who was working in the next kisosk called me over and motioned to me that she wanted one of the tracts I was passing out to people.  I greeted her and gave her one, even though I couldn’t talk to her.  I really sensed that the Holy Spirit was already dealing with her.  I walked on and came back a while later and she was very excited after reading some of the tract.  She kept patting herself on her chest indicating that something was going on in her heart.
Several days later I took Susy there to meet her.  As soon as she saw Susy, she started weeping uncontrollably, and Susy started crying also.  Nok couldn’t talk for a while, just kept showing us the hair on her arms standing up as they hugged one another with an instant bond.  Everyone was watching as they fixed their makeup and began to talk.  Nok sent one customer away because she wanted to hear what Susy had to say.  Susy shared the Gospel with her, although by this time she had read Susy’s story about how Jesus had changed her life and she let Susy know that is what she wanted.  Susy helped her pray to receive Jesus right there in front of all of her peers, and God touched her heart in a powerful way.
Pray for Nok as we follow up on her and help her get started in Jesus.  She has such a tender heart.  Pray for all those other vendors and workers around her as well.
The other day at lunch, Susy prayed with a man and woman to receive Christ, and then last night at Church she prayed with two more people to receive Jesus after the service was over.  Praise God!
Pray for our November 25 Sunday Thanksgiving Service.  We have invited many unsaved people to a free brunch at the Hilton Hotel where we meet.  We are expecting 150-200 people, many are unsaved.  Pray many will come to Christ.
Thanks for all your prayers and financial help and encouragement.  You are all such a blessing to us.
We love and appreciate you all,
Dennis and Susy
