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!
