Dear Pastor and Praying Friends,

We are praying for all of you, that this year, each of us will see God work mightily in our lives and that we will see fruit that will remain from each of our labors for the Glory of God!

Last month after teaching for about 3 months, I finished teaching in Sunday School about “What is the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.” I know that the Word of God will not return void and I am continuing to trust the Lord to do the work that I cannot do, which is working in the hearts of the Thai members about their responsibility to reach the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Also last month we were able to teach and preach again for Missionary Enrile Badua at the Bangkok Baptist Church for their Mission’s Month. And I believe that the Lord really did a work during their Mission’s Month and there will be fruit in heaven because of this. It was also good to meet again some of the members that have been faithful in serving the Lord at that church for several years and also some new people that we did not know.

We have been trying to follow up on several of the people that we have asked you to pray for in the past and these are some updates from it. Because of one of the news paper ministries, Sompasong came about 2 years ago to Wiang Ping Baptist Church for a couple of times but then moved somewhere else. Later he returned back to the area and came again but somethings happened and he did not receive some correction from the Bible so he stopped coming. We have been praying for him and 3 weeks ago he came back and got right but sadly the doctors have told him that he has around 18 months to live because of intestinal cancer. But we know and he knows that God is in control of all of this but sadly, he has only been back one other time to church. So pray with us that Sompasong will fully follow the Lord and will be an example to His wife, which is a new Christian and his daughter, which is around 7 years old and that this family will grow spiritually and that if Sompasong does have only 18 months left that he will leave a good testimony of living for God. We have also been trying to followup on Phon but we have yet to catch him at home once he has gotten off from work. So please pray that we will be able to catch him at home and will be able to talk to him about his spiritual life.

The Lord has opened up some new opportunities for us also. Over the past couple of months we have been witnessing to and have invited a Thai man named Paul to come to church. About 3 weeks ago he started telling us some about his life and during our conversation I asked him if he would give me around an hour a week to study the Bible with me and he agreed. Today was the second time that we have studied together and the Lord is working in his life. Today he basically said that he has a desire to be back in fellowship with God but many things have happened in his life. Please pray for him that he will seek the Lord and will allow the Lord to work in his life, and that the Lord will lead me in knowing what we should study together. Also I have started twice a week teaching through a Bible College curriculum with Abhisit and his wife at the church in Lampang. Pray for us as we are doing this and for this couple because they have already surrendered their lives to serve the Lord fulltime and the Lord is using them there in Lampang. Plus we are continuing to teach English and I am continuing to teach Sunday School every week and I am also preaching along with these things.

Also please pray as we are preparing for our 3rd annual English Camp that will be here in Chiang Mai from April 2-6 and over 35+ people has already registered and we are praying that we will have 100 campers and will see a number of them saved and decide to follow the Lord. Plus most of the Thai Independent Baptist Churches will be having church camp together from April 14-17 and we have invited the families of our English students to come, as it will be a great time for them to meet other Thai Christians from around the country and it will be a great time for them to take time to listen to the preaching and teaching of the Word of God. Please pray along with us for these camps that God will work and we will see people saved and surrender their lives to serve the Lord. Also pray for the political system of Thailand because their have been street protests for several months and even though they have decreased in number the differences do not seem to have been settled yet.

For the Millions of Untold Souls in Thailand,

Brian, Evelyn, Ruth, and Rachel McClain

Dear Pastor and Praying Friends,

We hope that you are already enjoying the blessings of God this new year. We have been truly blessed by your prayers, Christmas and birthday cards, and the special Christmas and birthday offerings that you sacrificially sent to our family.

Just as the past several months were busy times in the USA, they have been busy months for us here in Thailand also. During the past several months Lanna Baptist Church in Lampang has been building their first church building and we have been able to help in the building process and also with some of the cost of the building. And as a result of your faithful support for our ministry here 3 people have already made a profession of faith in Jesus Christ and this past Sunday 8 people received baptism at the new building in Lampang, so your fruit in heaven has been increased.

December 22, we had our Christmas service at Wiang Ping Baptist Church here in Chiang Mai and we invited several of the Thai people that we know and the grandfather of our English student Naam waan came and Phue the mother of Naam and Noot came also. Neither of these made a profession of faith but the seed of the Word of God has been planted and we are asking God to help us water the seed and let us see the harvest of these seeds.

During December 30 to January 1 we had a new year countdown revival meeting here in Chiang Mai with Wiang Ping and Lanna Baptist Church and Grace Baptist Church in Pathumthani. Missionary Ronaldo Gutlay preached and the Lord moved in our hearts and in the hearts of others to do more for the Lord’s glory this year.

In our last prayer letter we asked you to pray for Nung and Phon, who had recently started coming back to church after being out of church for over a year. Nung had decided to sign a contract with the airforce and he has not been back in a couple of weeks. Sadly, there have been a couple of times in his life where he has been faithful to church but something would happen and he would leave and not come back for a while but then he would come back again and then leave again. As for Phon, at one time he and his wife Mae were faithful but one new year’s holiday they went back to his parent’s house and then he did not come back to church for over a year. From what I understand his family are not Christians and they put pressure on him for going to church and he gave in to their pressure. Around October, Phon started coming back to church with his wife Mae, who has been faithful even though her husband has not been, then they went back to his parent’s house for this new year and he has not been back. Pastor Srithone and I went to visit him about 2 weeks ago and tried to challenge him and then he did not come to church even though he said that he would, then I called him the next week and he said he would be at church but he did not come. So pray that we will have wisdom in following up on these guys and that they will allow the Lord work in their lives.

I am continuing to teach on What is the Great Commission of Jesus Christ in Sunday School and for most of them its the first time that they have ever studied this in detail and I am trying to be as through as I can because I know that God has commanded every Christian and every church everywhere to obey the Great Commission and that God will bless the Christians and churches that obey and follow our Lord’s command. I think some of them are understanding it because several weeks ago I was using 2 Cor. 8:1-3 and the story of the widow lady in 1 Kings 17 to help explain giving by sacrificing and giving by faith and a member asked if this was different than tithing so we said it was and then the following week I gave a brief review of the last week’s lesson and explained more about how giving by sacrificing and giving by faith were different than tithing. And then I used the story of Hannah to help explain giving by faith more. Please pray along with us that the Holy Spirit will work in their souls and they will not only see and understand their responsibility to obey and follow the Great Commission of Jesus Christ, but that they will put their understanding into action.

Please also pray as since Lanna Baptist Church’s building is now finished, I will be starting weekly to help Pastor Srithone teach the Bible College curriculum there to some of the members, along with us continuing to teach English, preaching, and teaching Sunday School. 

For the Millions of Untold Souls in Thailand,

Brian, Evelyn, Ruth, and Rachel McClain

October 2013 Prayer Letter

Dear Pastor and Praying Friends,

We are very grateful for your emails, letters, cards, prayers, and faithful support for the ministry and our family here in Thailand. 

As you know we have been praying for God’s direction in our ministry here in Thailand, whether to go start a church in one of the several cities that we have been praying for, that only have a few “Christian” churches in them or pursue one of the ministry opportunities that have been presented to us by another missionary and another one by a Thai Pastor. During June and July we surveyed several cities in northeastern and central Thailand and handed out around 8,000 tracts total. We have been praying that if the Lord wanted us to go to one of these cities that we would receive some responses from one of these cities and we would move there to followup these responses. While we have been praying and anticipating the direction that the Lord would be leading us in, we have continued helping Pastor Srithone by teaching English, teaching Sunday School, and preaching at Wiang Ping Baptist Church here in Chiang Mai and we have also preached several times at Lanna Baptist Church in Lampang. As several weeks past I started wondering why the Lord had not lead us to move to another place already but then starting around the second week in August we faced some opposition from our adversary, the devil in which Evelyn came down with Bell’s Palsy. Then about two weeks later from what it seems she started having some rare side effects to some of the medicine that the Neurologist had given her. But unfortunately the Neurologist did not know that some of the things that Evelyn was experiencing were in part rare side effects from these medicines. Since these things have happened, the Lord lead us to the Christian doctor that we are currently seeing that is actually here in Chiang Mai, who has over 30 years experience and knew of the rare side effects that Evelyn had from these medicines. Looking back now I see the loving hand of our loving Lord, who did not allow us to move to another city because we would have not had the help that we have received from Pastor Srithone, his wife and our fellow missionaries that are currently studying the language here in Chiang Mai and because these other cities do not have the medical treatment that Chiang Mai has.

Therefore after prayer and counsel from our Pastor Harold Blankenship and from Pastor Srithone, I believe that it is best for our family to stay here in Chiang Mai for another year. During this time we will continue helping Pastor Srithone at Wiang Ping Baptist Church here in Chiang Mai and also some at Lanna Baptist Church in Lampang with teaching and preaching and also with training several men in these churches.

Within the last couple of months at Lanna Baptist Church in Lampang 3-4 people have been saved and several of them have shown a hunger to know the Word of God. Also in Wiang Ping Baptist Church two young men that have been out of church for over a year started coming back. Please pray for Nung and Phon that they will not harden their hearts to the working of God in them and that the Lord will use us to be an encouragement to them. Also I have been using the ABCs of Christian Growth as a guide in teaching Sunday School and this month I have come to M which stands for Missions. I am using various materials in order to teach in detail about what is the Great Commission of Jesus Christ according to the Bible because it is essential for the Thai Christians to realize their responsibility to be a witness here in Chiang Mai, throughout Thailand, and around the world all at the same time. Please to continue to pray for my Thai speaking and for the hearers to be able to clearly understand the necessity for them to obey the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.

In our last letter we mentioned a lady named Plaa that responded to one of the newspaper articles and came to church. The day she came to church Pastor Srithone and his wife witnessed to her while I was teaching Sunday School and Plaa said she wanted to prayed and receive Jesus Christ as her Saviour but after she prayed it was like she was expecting some type of power to fill her body and solve the problems in her life. And there are many people here like this that have done many of the things that the various beliefs here teach them to do in order to be protected from evil spirits, danger, and to bring good fortune, happiness, etc. Plus within the last two months there have been several newspaper articles that have talked about the belief in different spirits. You can read a summary of these articles at Transport accidents and this article Protestors to enlist divine spirits which will give you a greater understanding of the beliefs here in Thailand. Please continue to pray for us as we are trying to tell these people about the love and redemptive work that Jesus Christ has done for them and for everyone in the world.

July 2013 Prayer Letter

July 10, 2013

Dear Pastor and Praying Friends,

We praise the Lord for giving America another year of freedom to proclaim the Glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the World! May all of us be found faithful in this freedom that we have!

These are some of the different ways that the Lord has been working here in Thailand.

Every week I have been teaching Sunday School and I have just started using another teaching method with the goal of getting the Thai people more involved in the lesson by giving them a lesson sheet with questions about the verses we are studying together. My goal is to help them realize that God wants us to study His Word and that they can individually study and understand the Word of God. This also opens up another way to help me in learning Thai because they are giving the answers orally therefore I need to understand the answers they are giving me.

From April 17-21 we had the church’s 2nd Annual English Camp. We had around 50 students from middle school age to senior adults that were mostly from Chiang Mai and Lampang and the rest were from different parts of Thailand. We had teams during the camp representing the different countries in Asean and every morning and evening we preached the Gospel to them. We had 2 girls in our group from the same town named Sai and Khawpaeng and both of their parents told them before they came to the camp to not believe in Jesus. On the Sunday which was the last day of the camp I made a lesson in English and Thai from Acts 17 which is Paul at Mars Hill for my team group. 

I taught them how most religions and people in the world agree that Jesus Christ did live on this earth and died but they do not agree that He rose again or was God. And the reason why is because if they did agree, then they would be admitting that Jesus Christ was the only true and real God and that He would be the one that will judge all men of their sin. I gave them each a copy of the lesson in English and Thai with a picture of Mars Hill today and explained to them that this event really did take place in history and that one day Jesus Christ will actually judge all of us for our sin.

We thank the Lord for the 9 students made a profession of faith in Jesus Christ during the English camp. One of these is a girl named Benz. Shortly after she arrived home from the camp, she told her mom that she believed in Jesus and her mom asked her why did she make a decision so quickly and her dad said do not waste your time on Christianity but focus on your schooling instead. So please pray with us for the 9 students that made a profession of faith in Jesus Christ because majority of them are the only Christians in their families and most of them will probably face some type of opposition from their families. Also pray for all the students that attended the camp that they will think upon the things that we preached and taught them about the real and living God that loves them.

So far this year we have had several responses from the church websites and the newspaper ministry. During the major flooding around Bangkok in 2011 a woman named Yimrack was saved and started praying for her husband named Abhisit, who was a monk for 8 years and then became a supervisor at one of the Toyota factories for around 12-15 years. As a result of his wife’s prayers he was saved also and they went to several churches but their desire to know more about their Saviour Jesus Christ and His word was never really satisfied. Eventually they started searching the internet for someway to study the Bible for free and then they found the church website. They started studying the Bible through the church’s website and started contacting Pastor Srithone. Through this God started working in their lives and they started desiring to serve the Lord full-time with their lives so Pastor Srithone invited them to come and visit the churches in Chiang Mai and Lampang and challenged them to pray about moving and studying the Bible fulltime. This family has stepped out on faith, quit their jobs, moved from Bangkok and have started studying the Bible full-time. And during the English camp Abhist and Yimrack gave their testimonies and several of the students asked them a lot of questions about their lives and how they came to believe in Jesus Christ.

Just this weekend a lady here in Chiang Mai named Plaa who has done many of the things that Buddhism teaches a person to do in order to be forgiven of their sins but none of it has satisfied the longing in her soul and she read the newspaper article and called Pastor Srithone and asked him if Jesus Christ can really wash away sin and he explained to her that Jesus Christ is not a man but is God and can forgive anyone that will believe in Him of their personal sin.

Please pray for Plaa that she will sincerely study the Bible study materials that we are sending her and that she will let nothing stop her from coming to the church in Chiang Mai this coming Sunday.

There are also several other people that have recently responded to the newspaper articles and to the websites that we have invited to church and have sent the Bible study materials to. So please pray along with us that satan will not steal away the seed of the Word of God from their souls and they will seek the Lord for the forgiveness of their sins and serve Him with their lives.

In our last letter we mentioned that we have been praying for God’s direction for the next step in ministry here in Thailand, whether to go start a church in one of the several cities that we have been praying for, that only have a few “Christian” churches in them or to help a Thai church get more established. Since we just recently finished the homeschooling year for Ruth and Rachel, almost two weeks ago our family traveled to the northeastern part of Thailand to survey the cities of Roi Et, Kalasin, and Maha Sarakham. In each of these cities we passed out at least 1,000 tracts and are praying that we will see some people respond from any of these cities that we could followup and eventually see a church started in one of these cities. Please pray along with us because we have a real desire to know and go only in the direction that God wants us to go in. Therefore because there are so many doors of opportunities before us and we are asking God to close the doors that he does not want us to go through and give us wisdom and clear direction in which step He wants us to take.

April 2013 Prayer Letter

Dear Pastor and Praying Friends,

Thank you for your letters, emails, and faithful support that continually remind us of your prayers and love for our family and the ministry here in Thailand!

During the last couple of months God has reminded me of several scriptural truths:

Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Psalms 126:6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

Galatians 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Around 13 years ago, God started putting me in contact with many Asian teens and children that lived in the area of my bus route and one day I meet Philip. Philip’s family is from Laos and his sister, brother, and himself started coming to church. One night after I did a Bible study at Philip’s house I gave him a tract and soon after, he read the tract and made a profession of faith. For several years, Philip and I served the Lord together and he was basically my right hand man but then Philip started missing some services and eventually stopped coming to church. I could not catch him at home and when I would reach him by phone, he was not interested and it continually broke my heart to see this happen. For almost 10 years of praying and sometimes weeping for him and his family and asking God to do a work in their lives and with 3 of these years being in Thailand with not knowing how to contact Philip or his family. God had been hearing my prayers and had been working in Philip’s life! Just several months ago, Philip got right with God and used the internet to track me down and called me here in Thailand. Now Philip has joined our home church and he is burdened for his family and friends. Already this year his dad and mom have made a profession of faith and have been baptized at our church and he is teaching a Sunday School class and is involved at our home church.

Through this God has showed me again that His Word will not return void, the importance of truly being burdened in your heart for someone, that God can and will do more than what we think, if we faint not in our walk with the Lord then we shall see the fruit of our labors, and not to give up on the other people that I am praying for! So it is very important that we do not stop asking God to work in our own lives and in the lives of others!

Since February, Pastor Srithone has given me the opportunity to start teaching Sunday School every week at the church. This is really challenging but it is helping me get a better grasp of the Thai language. Please help us pray as I want to get to the point where I am not relying on my Thai notes and will only be using my English notes. Plus I want to try different methods of teaching and see which one is most effective in helping the believers understand and know more about the Word of God, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Please also pray with us as we are preparing for the church’s 2nd Annual English Camp from April 17-21. We are asking God to give us 100 students and let us see at least 20 of them profess Jesus Christ as their Saviour and become a servant for Jesus Christ. We have been passing out flyers, have advertised in the newspapers, and are praying everyday asking God to do a great work at the camp.

We are continuing to pray for wisdom as I am trying to develop and research some ideas of the most effective way to survey the cities that we have being praying about going and starting a church in. These cities have only a few “Christian” churches compared to the population. Please help us pray as my goal is to have a plan put together by May and immediately start using it to survey these cities and try to find the people where God is working in their lives.

Dear Pastor and Praying Friends,

We sincerely are very grateful for all the emails, cards, letters, gifts and special offerings that we received over the Christmas season, for Evelyn’s and Ruth’s Birthdays and for the prayers for my dad before he went to be with the Lord on October 19. I am thankful that I was able to talk to my dad several times over the phone from Thailand and that God has allowed me to continue to witness to my brother and sister especially during this time. Please continue to pray that they will allow the Lord to work in their lives for His Glory. We are truly blessed by all of your continued thoughtfulness and love for our family and the ministry here in Thailand especially during these times.

The Nationwide Independent Baptist Church Camp

Thank you for praying for God to meet with His people during the Church Camp. There were over 14 churches represented at the camp and around 190 people. Many were helped by the preaching of the Word of God and several people made professions of Faith in Jesus Christ.

Baptism at the Wiang Ping Baptist Church

During the Church Camp Wiang Ping Baptist Church also baptized six Thai people. One of these was Skate, who is part of the spiritual fruit that was added to your account in Heaven because she got saved at the English Camp that we had in April. Please continue to pray for Skate because she is the only Christian in her family and she wants to see her family be saved also.

Also baptized was a family of 3 who contacted Pastor Srithone through the church website wanting to study the Bible. Before they lived in Bangkok and went to a charismatic church but now they have moved back to their home province of Loei which is around 6 hours from Chiang Mai. Several times our family has traveled with Pastor Srithone to followup on this family and their extended family to establish them in their faith and see a church get started there. Please pray for this family because God has been working throughout this extended family but now there has been a change in their heart to know the truth of God’s Word. So please pray with us that they will reject the teaching of men and accept the truth’s of God’s Word.

Along with this we have been reminded of the opposition of the Devil to the work of the Lord here in Thailand. Two examples among several that we have experienced this year are our neighbor Khun At, who made a profession of faith in January 2011 and Daaw, who was one of our English students who was very interested in the Gospel. Both have been forbidden by their families to go back to church. Please pray for the people that are seeking the truth of the Gospel and for the Christians that are growing spiritually but Satan is working to stop them.

Our Travels in Thailand

During the last couple of months not only have we continued teaching English, helping teach the men in the church, homeschooling, and have been traveling with Pastor Srithone to followup on the contacts in the province of Loei, but also during December we have traveled several times to survey the capital city of the province of Buriram which is around 12 hours away from Chiang Mai. A Thai Pastor had a member move to Buriram city about 2 years ago and he has asked us to pray about visiting Buriram city to see if the Lord would lead us there to start a church. Therefore during the past several months we have been traveling to both Loei and Buriram in seeking the Lord’s direction about these two opportunities that are before us along with continuing to pray and research the other cities in Thailand that we have already been praying for. Since December we have really intensified our praying and asking God for clear direction to where He wants us to go to start a church. Our desire is to know the direction of the Lord and then move and start a church this year in the city that the Lord wants us to be in. Please pray along with us that we will soon see the Lord’s direction in this for the glory of God.

Dear Pastor and Praying Friends,

We are very thankful for your continuous prayers and support for our family and ministry here in Thailand. We also want to thank you for your thoughtfulness in all the birthday cards that we have received for Rachel’s birthday and for the letters and cards that we have recently received for our family. We currently have several things that are coming up that we want you to help us pray for.

The Nationwide Independent Baptist Church Camp

From October 22-25 Wiang Ping and Lanna Baptist Churches will be hosting the nationwide Independent Baptist Church camp. We are expecting around 13 Thai churches and about 200 people from all around Thailand to come. Please pray with us that God will allow everyone to have safety in traveling, that God would give good health to the pastors that will be preaching during the camp, for the lost to be saved, for God to revive His people, and that God will call Thai laborers into His harvest fields here in Thailand and throughout the world.

Our Visa Situation

Please pray for us as we are leaving for Bangkok this coming Monday and will be renewing our religious visas and work permit on Tuesday. The news is reporting that Tropical Storm Gaemi is suppose to hit the Bangkok area this weekend so please pray that we will be able to get to the government offices that we need to go to on Tuesday and that the offices will not be flooded or closed and that we will be able to renew our visas and work permit with no problems.

Our Thai Language Studies

We praise the Lord for Pastor Srithone for giving us opportunities to serve and preach in the churches that he pastors. Since our last prayer letter I have been able to preach 2 more times and have lead many of the church services. For about a month I have been helping Pastor Srithone in teaching the Bible to Khun Prawit and Khun Sumet who are two men in the church. I am teaching these men twice a week for about two and half hours each time and I am using a Bible coarse that is already in Thai. I praise the Lord for these two men who are not only patient but are also helping me with my language abilities. Please pray that God that will continue to help Khun Prawit and Khun Sumet in their Bible studies and as they serve the Lord with us here in Thailand.

Evelyn has also been busy with homeschooling Ruth and Rachel, with us teaching English on Fridays and Saturdays, and she has been helping teach the children’s Sunday school class. We are excited because 3 of our English students have been faithfully attending the church services on Sunday for the past several months. Please pray that the English students and also the regular church kids will be saved, will commit their lives to the Lord, and that we will be able to reach the parents of our English students.

Please also pray for my dad who is currently in a hospice care unit in NC and has cancer throughout his body. Pray that God will give him grace and mercy during this time, that my dad will make sure of his salvation, will be prepared to meet the Lord, and that my sister and brother will allow God to work in their hearts during this time.

Brian, Evelyn, Ruth, and Rachel McClain
