- Praise God for His help in settling into the house. The task has been a bit daunting, but we are 80 percent finished. We hope to have the church members over later this month for a time of fellowship and dedicating this house to the Lord.
- Praise God, it looks like we have enough money to purchase the car. Thank you to all who donated to our vehicle fund. We need to wait until the new model cars come out at the end of August or beginning of September, because the one we hope to buy is out of stock. Pray that God leads us in the purchase and provides a good car that will serve us well.
- Praise God also for helping us start right back into ministry. We had to quickly catch up with all that has happened in the last year. The church has grown significantly and there are many people to follow up. Ed has started discipling Nong Baw and Nong Bam, both in fourth grade. They both truly believe and want to grow in their faith. Ed also began working with Bly, Nun’s teenage nephew. He has been away from the Lord for about two years but wants to start over. Pray for Ed as he begins to disciple Nun’s two adult sons: Frame and Bawn, both starting out in the faith.
Meanwhile, Sue has jumped in with the ladies. She has also been hanging out with Bale and Manao, our two most stable teenagers. They both serve on the worship team and help Sue with the children. They are burdened to see other teens come to faith. My kid’s club has become more of a middle school/junior high group. Pray for wisdom as “my kids” have grown over the four years I have know them. These are precious (and crazy) times to be able to help guide them through the teenage years. Pray that they each truly put their faith in Jesus.
- Praise God for our mother church! Pastor Sukprasan has been helping a lot, especially with the worship team, as we wait for Sittichai to finish his summer internship with YFC and begin a nine-month internship at the church at the end of August. Pray that God continues to raise up the Thai leadership for this church.
We deeply appreciate all your prayers for us. God is building His church in Thailand in answer to prayer! Thank you also for your faithful and generous support to the Great Commission Fund of The Christian and Missionary Alliance. These funds supply our living allowance and ministry funds. We appreciate all you do to help us financially. You can go to https://www.cmalliance.org/give type in our name and select “support.” Or you can give to the GCF through your local C&MA church.
Love in Christ,
Ed and Sue Danneker
