Praise and Prayer Requests – December 2017

The team from the Glenview Alliance Church (Glen Rock, PA) was amazing. Their enthusiastic two weeks of ministry alongside us touched every corner of the church.  God has a way of sending the right people at the right time.  Our “Kid’s Club” children loved them and several kids bonded with the team members in a special way.  Many kids came who we have not seen for a while.  God arranged “divine appointments” when we took them to visit believers and seekers in the community.  One of the team members had experience in helping people get free of addictions.  He was […]

Welcome to the Family, Nought and Ta!

“Ed, can you meet me tomorrow at the church?  Nought is ready to trust in Jesus as his Savior,” Aey said over the phone.   “Definitely!” Ed responded and they set up a time.  What a delightful surprise and what a wonderful change of events.  Up until that point, we were concerned that Nought was not really interested in the Lord. Nought, a young man 30 years old, first came to our church with his Aunt Ta right after our church dedication service at the end of August.  His uncle had attended the dedication.  He was impressed with what he saw […]

A lady named Jim (and an evangelist named Nun)

Jim and Nun

“God is using my shop again!” Nun excitedly told me.  “I have prayed for the people on this street between my shop and the fresh market every day for the last year and God is starting to move!”  Indeed people were starting to stop by Nun’s hair salon again and ask questions about the Lord.  She was putting up more Bible verses in various spots around the room and laying out more Gospel literature for people to take.   Nun was most thrilled that a lady named Jim was starting to show an interest in the Lord.  They have known each […]

Thai Mother’s Day Outreach

The children came early, full of excitement and all dolled up with a little stage make-up.  We were going to celebrate Thai Mother’s Day (celebrated August 12 each year).  After almost two months of practice, the children were more than ready for the two songs they were going to present that Sunday morning.  Now, would the moms come? We had been encouraging our Saturday Kid’s Club children to invite their moms.  “My mom’s not free.”  “My mom won’t come.” Was what I had been hearing.  Several children told me, “I don’t have a mom – my grandma takes care of […]

Mahapawn Baan Paeo Church Dedication Celebration – August 27, 2017

Praise God for the church dedication celebration of the Mahapawn Baan Paeo Church.  Everything went very smoothly.  Thank you for praying.  In the morning, 28 members from our mother church, the Mahapawn Living Water Church, joined us for a joint worship service.  Pastor Sukprasan, the mother church pastor, brought his worship team and led the service.  Ed preached the message from the Word.  It was so good to fellowship with our mother church members again.  Ed and I had been privileged to help with planting that church from 2007-2014.  We all enjoyed fellowship lunch together then started to prepare for […]

Praise and Prayer Requests – September 2017

Praise God for Sittichai, a third year Bangkok Bible School student who has joined us for weekend ministry. The Lord sent him to us the weekend before our big dedication service, just in time to help with so many logistics of handling such a crowd.  We are impressed by this young man’s dedication to serve the Lord.  He comes to Baan Paeo Friday night and stays at the church through Sunday afternoon.  He has classes Tuesday through Friday.  Please pray for him that God will bless his ministry and his studies.   After our dedication service, the assistant mayor of […]

Spiritual Hunger


Nok and her husband Roong had asked Jesus to be their Savior this past Christmas.  But due to the nature of their work, building concrete roads, their attendance at church has been sporadic.  “When we are pouring the concrete, we have to finish, we can’t take a break.  And sometimes we are under a deadline and don’t dare take a break either,” they explained.  Nok was “revived” after the short term team from River Valley Alliance Church came at the end of June.  We took several people from the team to visit them at their worksite.  Nok was able to […]
