Dear Pastor and Praying Friends,
We sincerely thank you so much for praying for us and the work of our Lord Jesus Christ that we are trying to do here in Chiang Mai, Thailand. In our last prayer letter we told you about the working of satan, demons, and society working to keep people from hearing the Word of God or to get them away from the Word of God. Even though most of the people I mentioned have not given time to hear the Word of God and others have stayed away from hearing the Word of God, a few have came to hear the Word of God. One is a girl that was studying English with us in her neighborhood. We thank the Lord she started coming to church with us and is also coming to the English classes at the church. She has helped in getting some of the other students that were studying English with us to come back to the church also. Then about three weeks ago while talking to my wife at our house, she made a profession of faith. Please pray for this girl that she will grow in her relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and the others from her neighborhood that are also coming to church, that they will decide to be saved and allow the Lord to use their lives for His glory.
In our last prayer letter, we told you that along with sending one of the guy’s in Samuel’s house leadership and Bible training school back home because he was not open to developing his life, we also had to talk again to another guy about his life and he choose to go back home but praise the Lord, he choose to come back to the school and we are continually working with him and the other 4 guys in the school. Please pray for the 5 guys currently in the school because some of them are realizing that they are going to have to choose to follow the Lord Jesus Christ in their lives or follow their flesh and the world. We know that they individually have to sincerely make this decision for themselves and purpose to follow the Lord by choosing to obey His Word in every area in their lives. One need that we have with the school is for the Lord to give us a growing and dedicated Thai Christian man or family to come help Pastor Srithone and I with the school. Please continue to pray with us that each of these guys will let the Lord mold and make them into one of His servants and that the Lord will give us a Thai worker to help with the school.
In our last prayer letter we mentioned about us starting to work with another fellow missionary in trying to adjust things with his evangelistic websites in hopes of seeing more people get further in the online and offline Bible studies and hopefully see more people actually finish the Bible studies. So far I have finished adjusting half of one Bible study series and soon will be testing it out to see if these adjustments work or not. I am also trying to get the Christians in the churches to help me plan out an online page where we will be dealing with everyday life situations from a Biblical perspective. Please pray as we have faced some hindrances in trying to get these things accomplished for example the missionary I am working with has been battling some very intense physical problems with a bone spur in his neck pinching a nerve and causing him severe pain. He is currently trying to find out which is the best way to try and solve this problem, so please pray for him and his family.
We are still working with Pastor Srithone in training Apisit and his wife and we praise the Lord for their growth in the Lord! The Lord is currently using them in leading most of the ministry of Lanna Baptist Church in Lampang and Apisit will be come the pastor of the church within the next year.
Please remember to pray for our upcoming Christmas celebrations at all three churches on December 16, 22, and 24. We are praying to not just see many people come but praying that the lost will hear and understand the Gospel and be saved, and the saved will rejoice about God keeping His promise to send the Saviour to redeem all mankind from our sins.
Please remember that if your church or sunday school class has any questions about our ministry here, then please send us your questions and I will make a simple web cam video answering those questions and will email you a link to download the video to show your church or sunday school class.
For the Millions of Untold Souls in Thailand,
Brian, Evelyn, Ruth, and Rachel McClain
