We have been pretty busy getting ready for the Calvary Chapel Valle Vista team that will be joining us July 17th-23rd. We will be spending some time in Phuket and also doing a large youth conference for both the Thai and Burmese. On the 23rd the whole team including the Nelson family will be heading to Cambodia for the remainder of the trip, until I believe the 28th. We will be applying for new visas at that time as well as participating in short term missions with Water of Life foundation. We are really excited to welcome them and see so many of our friends and family. Please pray for the team, their visit, Cambodia, and our visas.
I have written about the twice monthly Bible reading before, by request we have now begun to hold this study every week. Last week there were 9 people that came to hear and discuss the Word of God. I am very excited to see what the Lord is going to do with this group. Prayerfully we will have to find somewhere else to hold study, with 9 it is already pretty full.
As we attempt to witness to the Thai of our village we continue to run into one roadblock. The animosity between the Thai and Burmese. Many attempts are thwarted as soon as the relationship between myself and the "Burmese Church" is established. Calvary Chapel Ban Nam Khem is of course not a Burmese Church it is a Church that holds services in both Thai and Burmese, but getting the Thai to understand that has not been easy. Satan has alot of strongholds in the lives of the Thai, making them very hard to reach. Please join us in fervent prayer for wisdom as we are faced with these strongholds and work with the Lord to tear them down.
