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 renovations at our mother church’s new home continue. Its been a blessing to see teams of their young people enthusiastically working. The Mahapawn Baan Paeo Church has sent several work teams as well. The electrical contractor updated the electrical system. Please pray that God will lead them to the right contractor to update the water system and bathrooms. Pray for wisdom for Pastor Sukprasan as he directs the renovations.
Attapon, the Bible School student serving with us on weekends, is meeting with Ed for Soul Care. Pray that God uses this in Attapon’s life personally and as a tool for him to help others experience freedom in Christ. Attapon wants to be all in with Jesus and live a victorious life pleasing to God.
On June 4, the Lord confirmed in Pastor Sittichai’s heart the He has indeed called him to be the pastor of the Mahapawn Baan Paeo Church. Pastor Sittichai was meditating on Isaiah 41 that day. We have seen a difference. Pray that God will continue to bless Pastor Sittichai’s ministry.
Another milestone: on June 29, Pastor Sittichai organized and met with the newly formed church committee. Pray for these four adults as they serve alongside pastor to help with the church finances and other decision-making issues in the church.
Praise God, we are already at 20% towards our goal of raising $1,800/month for our strategic needs and partial support for this fiscal year (July 2021-June 2022). Please pray that the rest will soon be met. If you would like to specifically partner with us or know of someone that might be interested in knowing more about our work in Thailand, please contact us.
Thank you so much for your partnership with us as we come alongside Thai believers to plant new communities of faith in least reached areas of Thailand. We can’t do this alone. Your prayers are vital and very appreciated. Our great God hears them and is building His church here in Thailand as a result.
Your financial gifts to The Great Commission Fund (GCF) of the Christian and Missionary Alliance enable us to continue serving as “boots on the ground.” Every gift is very appreciated whether it is to the general GCF fund, which benefits all 700+ of us International Workers, or to our specific ministry needs. You may give to the GCF though your local Alliance Church or online at www.cmalliance.org/give To give to us specifically, you can designate your gift for the “ministry of Ed and Sue Danneker.” Thank you for your generosity.
May God continue to bless you and keep you in these uncertain times.
In Christ’s love,
Ed and Sue Danneker
