Praise and Prayer Requests – Sept 2021

Please pray as the Mahapawn Baan Paeo Church continues to reach out in practical ways to the Baan Paeo fire victims.    Major renovations are in full swing at our mother church’s new home.  God led the Mahapawn Living Water Church to a good contractor. Thanks for praying!  Pray for safety for the workmen, and wisdom for Pastor Sukprasan as the work progresses.  Pray too that these workmen may come to know Jesus as their Savior. Please pray for the church members who are recovering from Covid.  Pray that God will be their strength and they will quickly be healed.  […]

From Beautician to Barista

After a noble attempt to stay afloat among the Covid waves, Belle had to close her beauty salon at the end of May.  But as God closed that door, He opened another for her at an up-scale coffee shop and restaurant right here in Baan Paeo.  Now as a barista, she is experiencing a whole new “mission field:” her co-workers.  Belle praises God for the natural conversations she has been able to have with them.  For some, she is the first Christian they have ever spoken to.  Belle is also experiencing being employed full time, with only Wednesday off.  At […]

Praise and Prayer Requests – August 2021

Pray for Belle that she will stand firm in her convictions at her new job and the Lord will continue to give her opportunities to share her faith.  Pray for her co-worker, “Ice,” who is showing the most interest In Jesus right now. Fire broke out in Baan Paeo’s quaint market situated along the main canal the evening of July 31.  The old wooden structures were destroyed in minutes.  The firetrucks defended the concrete road bridge on one end of the market and the wooden foot bridge on the other.  But they could not get to the heart of the […]

Praises, Updates, and Prayer Requests – July 2021

The COVID situation here is still concerning.  Infections are higher than before as are the deaths. Hospital beds in the Bangkok area are quickly filling up. Vaccines are not yet widely available.  Please pray for God’s mercy on Thailand, and the rest of the world. The Mahapawn Baan Paeo Church continues Sunday worship on-line.  Very small groups of local members join in person, but we can’t formally “open” yet.  Pray for our members that are scattered farther away, that they will stay close to the Lord.  Some are the only Christian in their family and they long for fellowship. The […]

New Home for Mahapawn Living Water Church

Praise God!  Our mother church, the Mahapawn Living Water Church, has a new home!  The purchase transaction was completed on May 14.  Their new three-story building is double the size of their current rental and is just 200 meters further in the lane.  The church will be able to seamlessly continue to reach out to the same community where they have established many relationships over the 13 years they have been at their current rental.  When the new neighbors saw Pastor Sukprasan, they all greeted him as an old friend and were very excited to know the church is moving […]

New simpler way to partner with us

Thank you for your partnership with us as we come alongside Thai believers to plant new communities of faith in least reached areas of Thailand.  Your financial gifts to The Great Commission Fund (GCF) of the Christian and Missionary Alliance benefit us and over 700 International workers around the world as we serve communities, multiply church networks and develop people who’ll continue the journey of following Jesus. That will continue to be true and we greatly appreciate these general gifts.  This year, these general funds will provide over 75% of our compensation package and ministry funds.  Like before, you can […]

Praise and Prayer Requests – June 2021

Please pray for the Mahapawn Living Water Church, our mother church, as they do the renovations on their new building.  Pray that God will lead them in new and creative outreaches into the community.  One young child who lives next to the new building told Pastor Sukprasan that she would be the first to attend the services at the new church. The Mahapawn Baan Paeo Church had another free give away in front of their church building on Saturday afternoon May 22. In less than 45 minutes, 100 packets of face masks, hand gel, gospel tracts and bottles of cold […]

And God stopped the rain

Manao was eager to make the annual trip to the family village in Northeast Thailand over the Thai New Year holidays in April.  She especially wanted to see her ailing grandmother.  Belle, another young person in our church, was reluctant since she is from Baan Paeo and wanted to keep her hair salon open.  She decided to go along to honor her husband and his family who are from the same village as Manao.  I told her, perhaps God will use her and Manao in a special way this year. The first night they arrived, Belle and Manao shared the […]

Praise And Prayer Requests – May 2021

The Mahapawn Baan Paeo Church is back on-line for Sunday services due to the third wave of COVID after just 5-weeks of meeting in-person.  Please pray that we can creatively continue to care for the church members and reach out to the community.   The current COVID wave is more severe and widespread than the previous two waves.  Pray for God’s mercy and protection.    The planned outreaches at Mahapawn Baan Suan and Baan Bo are on hold due to the current COVID restrictions.  Praise God, the Lord is not restricted in any way.  Please pray with us that God […]
