A Dream Come True

It has been very exciting to see the Mahapawn Living Water Church, our mother church, use their new building for worship in October, albeit on-line.  The worship team fits comfortably on the new stage.  The church members are so excited to have a new home that they continue to donate for additional repairs and help where they can. This building is quite functional.  With land at a premium in the city, churches need to think “up” rather than “out,” and be multi-functional.   Pastor Sukprasan and his family now live in a nice apartment on the third floor.  The second floor […]

Praise and Prayer Requests – November 2021

Praise God, on October 30, the Mahapawn Living Water Church, our mother church, was able to distribute care packages to 200 neighbors.  Teachers from the Mahachai Christian School joined in to show the love of Jesus and be a witness.  Pray that the conversations will continue and many of their neighbors will come to a saving knowledge of Jesus. Praise God, after more than seven months, we were able to physically visit the Mahapawn Baan Suan house church now that Covid is settling down and the members there have all recovered.  Pray now as we move forward in helping this […]

Diamond in the rough begins to shine

It’s amazing what ten guys, skilled, experienced, and with the right tools, can do.  The Mahapawn Living Water Church building (our mother church) was transformed before our eyes in 20 days! After the building was purchased in May, Pastor Sukprasan began directing teams of volunteers to do what they could during June, July, and August.  And a lot was done, from clean-up, painting, to knocking down walls. They hired an electrician to update the distribution panel and increase the electrical service to the building.   But when the contractor came with his team on September 1, “mountains were moved.”  Thanks for […]

Praise and Prayer Request – October 2021

1. The Mahapawn Living Water Church, our mother church, has already begun reaching out to the community around the building they purchased in May.  During August, they packed 40 relief bags and distributed them at a nearby apartment complex to help with their neighbors’ economic struggle due to Covid.  One lady was so thankful that she cried when they knocked on her door to present the relief bag.  Please pray for fruit that will last as the church continues to reach out to their neighbors. 2. Praise God, the number of Covid infections and deaths started decreasing at the beginning […]

Coming Together

When we received the video clip that Pastor Sittichai posted on the church Line group the night of July 31, our hearts sank.  Baan Paeo was on fire!  We ran outside our home and could see flames and smoke shooting into the air less than one mile away.  The urge was to run and see, but we restrained, stayed home, and prayed.  Then we began to contact some family and friends around the world asking them to pray for God’s mercy.  Meanwhile, with the church building almost directly across the canal from the raging fire, Pastor Sittichai felt the heat […]

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 […]
