Thailand Evangelistic Association - T.E.A

Susy and I continue to make Personal Evangelism our highest priority in our daily ministry activity wherever we are each day.  We are always sharing the Good News about Jesus with others and trying to help them receive Jesus as their Savior.  In order to multiply our ministry efforts and to be as fruitful as we can, we also are teaching and training and equipping other believers and Churches to do the same.

To facilitate this effort among Thai believers and Churches, we have formed the Thailand Evangelistic Association or TEA for short.  The group of people consists of Born Again Believers in Jesus Christ who have a desire to tell other people about Jesus Christ and help them believe in and receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

The purpose we share is to Evangelize Thailand through personal one on one evangelism out where people work, live, shop, go to school, and move about each day.

We all evangelize wherever we are each day, and then gather together locally each week for a couple of hours to encourage one another, to discuss and share experiences and ideas and to learn from God’s Word about Personal Evangelism.

Each participant personally agrees to the following three things:

1.  Jesus Christ has commanded me to share the Good News about Jesus with others that I come in contact with each day.

2.  The Holy Spirit has empowered me to be a witness for Jesus Christ.

3.  I accept and will fulfill my responsibility to tell other people about Jesus Christ so that they can believe in and receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

These weekly TEA meetings are proving to be extremely powerful and life changing for those who attend, and are already impacting lives and bearing much fruit.  Our minds are being renewed as we study the Word of God concerning Personal Evangelism, and strongholds and fears are being broken as we receive and obey God’s Word.

Believers and Church leaders who have struggled with fear and shyness for years, are starting to share their faith with others on a daily basis, and some have already led people to faith in Jesus Christ.  They are now also telling other Christians about how being obedient to God’s Word in sharing their faith has changed their own life.

We are now beginning to help Churches start their own TEA meetings at a local Church level, as weekly cell and support groups for believers interested in learning how to tell other people about Jesus, outside the Church, wherever they are each day.

We are offering to help Churches get started with these cell groups, by teaching and training and equipping the leaders and their people with the Biblical and practical knowledge they need to share their faith and help unsaved people receive Jesus.  We will work with them for 6-8 weeks and then they will be able to continue without us.

We believe this can spread to many Churches throughout Thailand as believers and Churches see the impact that Personal Evangelism done on a daily basis, OUTSIDE THE CHURCH WALLS, can change and grow the Churches and the people.

Please pray for us and this movement as we continue to preach, teach, challenge and conduct Seminars, as well as establish and initially lead these groups.  Pray that we will have the Wisdom of God and be led by the Holy Spirit, and pray that our personal effectiveness and fruitfulness will increase as we continue to share Christ daily.

Some Trophies Of God's Saving Grace In Thailand!

Below are some a few photos and short stories of some of the people who have come to Christ recently in Thailand.  We have taken these from our Facebook pages and shared them here.  Follow us on Facebook if you can for a much more complete picture of our daily activities and ministry in Thailand!

-------------------------------------------------

Meet Khun Yod, our new brother in Christ! Susy shared Jesus with him this morning. He was so eager to be forgiven for his sins and receive the Gift of Eternal Life.

Thank you God for helping us help Khun Yod pray to receive Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior!
 





This dear Thai lady prayed to receive Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior near the Train Station in Hua Hin when Dennis and Joe were out passing out Gospel tracts and telling people about Jesus!




We met this 15 year old boy on the bus today and Susy was able to share Jesus with him and help receive the Gift of Eternal Life! He and Susy prayed together right there on the bus as he opened his heart to receive Jesus! Thank you Lord!



Thank you Lord for a great day of outreach and witnessing for Jesus with my wife. 

Here's a photo of Susy with Noi and Lek. They both prayed today to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. 

We also visited Nan today. She works in a local coffee shop where we shared the Gospel with her the other day. She told us that she prayed to receive Jesus after reading our True Happiness tract. 

Thank you Jesus for Your Amazing Love and Grace toward these precious Thai people.



Thank you Lord for saving this precious Nepali lady.  Susy and Dennis were able to share Christ with her at her store in Hua Hin and then help her pray to receive Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior!



Meet our new Sister in Christ, Nee! She saw Susy today at a small Shopping Mall where she works. Nee asked Susy if she could speak with her in private. She told Susy that she had been reading our True Happiness book that we had given to her Supervisor. 

She said that every time she saw Susy she noticed how happy she seemed to be. Susy explained to Née that her happiness was because of Jesus Christ, and then shared the Gospel with her.

Susy then helped Nee pray to receive Jesus as her Lord and Savior. Née was so blessed and happy after receiving Jesus. She expressed her appreciation to Susy and told her that she was overwhelmed by Susy taking the time to help her know the Lord right there where she worked.

Thank you Jesus for saving Née and forgiving her and for giving her the gift of Eternal Life.




We were blessed tonight to attend the wedding of Tik from Hua Hin and Fred from Australia. 

The most exciting part of the evening was when Fred prayed with Pastor Nippon and I to receive Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. 

Tik was already a believer in Jesus and had been praying for Fred to come to Christ. Thank you Jesus for answering her prayer on their Wedding Day!



I met Anton this morning for the first time. He is 82 years old and is from Norway, although he has lived in Thailand for many years. 

When I told him that God loves Him and that Jesus died for his sins so that he could forgiven, he cried and cried. 

Then I led him in a prayer to receive Jesus as His Savior, after which I prayed for the strengthening of his body and mind. 

Praise God with us for saving Anton and pray for him, too.



Just ran into Susy and our new little sister in Jesus, Pornpan, who is 18 and prayed to receive Christ yesterday over the phone with Susy, after receiving a Gospel tract from me. 

They are sitting at Market Village studying the new Bible that Susy gave her, as she begins her new life with Jesus. 

Pray for Pornpan to grow and be given the Spirit of Revelation as she reads the Word of God. 

Thank you Jesus for saving Pornpan and for revealing yourself to her and for guiding her into all Truth and for directing her steps!




Sunday afternoon with sister Gawn, after she attended a ladies meeting at a local Church. She is already telling others her story of how she met us, and then how she met Jesus!

Please continue to pray for God to direct her to a new job as she leaves the bar scene behind, and continues to follow Jesus! She is so grateful that we shared Christ with her!



Meet our new brother in Christ, Pong.  He was our taxi driver one day to a nearby town and I gave him a Gospel tract and then Susy shared Jesus with him.  We then helped him pray to receive Christ as his personal Lord and Savior.  Thank you Jesus for saving Pong.


Mr. Pong, our taxi driver who received Jesus as his Lord and Savior last week, introduced us to his sister and daughter from Bangkok today. 

Susy shared the Good News about Jesus with them and then helped both of them receive Christ as their Lord and Savior, too.

Thank you Jesus for saving Pook and his daughter Grace!

How Can They Believe Unless They Hear?


Dear Friends and Partners in Christ!
Greetings in the Wonderful and Powerful Name of Jesus!  We are getting ready for our return to Thailand, leaving Ohio on May 4 and arriving in Thailand on May 6.  Thank you for your prayers for all of our preparation and for our flights and travels, and good health and safety and favor with all those in authority.  Pray also for God’s supply of everything which is needed to do  the Kingdom Work that God has called us to do in Thailand and elsewhere.
Romans 10:13-15)  says, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!"
Our desire and goal each day in Thailand is to help the Thai people and the foreigners living and visiting there to hear the Good News about Jesus, so that they can have a chance to believe in Him and call upon Him as Lord and be saved by our gracious and loving Heavenly Father.  We know that God has chosen us and ordained us to go and tell and bear fruit that will remain and that the Holy Spirit has empowered us to be witnesses for Him, as we boldly proclaim JESUS.
We are absolutely certain that the fields are ripe for harvest, because Jesus said in John 4:35, I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.  We are going into the Harvest Fields of Hua Hin, with open eyes, looking each day for those ripe to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior, right where they are, on their job, out shopping, on the buses, or out walking.
We will go with confidence in the Power of the Gospel, since Scripture tells us that the Gospel is the power of God unto salvation to all who believe.  We believe that as we share the Good News about Jesus, the Holy Spirit will open the minds and hearts of the listeners, and that our God will confirm His Word with signs following as we faithfully Preach, Teach and Publish the Unsearchable Riches of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit.
We will also go out with confidence each day because we realize and know how great is the Love of God for each person that we meet and talk with.  We know that God loves them more than we love them and that He is directing our steps.  We go with confidence also because we know that people everywhere are the same, and want peace and forgiveness for their sins and a relationship with their Creator God!  They just need to hear!
We go with confidence also because we know that you at home, our senders and partners and friends, are praying for us and for the salvation of the people we talk to and that God is using your prayers to open hearts and minds to the Gospel.  We believe that the seed you are sowing into our lives and ministry, through prayer and finances, is making an eternal difference in the hearts and lives of those we minister to in Thailand, and that the sower and reaper will rejoice together.
Susy often reminds Christians in America how salvation came to her in Thailand when Christians here in the States sent me to the other side of the world in 1989, and because of some of you doing your part as Senders, Susy was given an opportunity to hear about Jesus for the very first time. After hearing about Him, she believed in Him and called upon Him as Lord.
Then her family heard about Jesus and came to Christ. Since then thousands and thousands of other Thai people have had the opportunity to hear about Jesus through Susy’s testimony as you have helped to send her for many years.
Thanks to each of you who continue to serve as Senders and who pray for us.  Let us know how we can pray for you.
Love and Blessings to you all.  Dennis and Susy!
