Your prayers made an eternity of difference

Whenever we send a prayer request to you, our prayer warriors, we know that you are faithfully lifting up our needs in prayer because we see the fruit of God's handiwork here in Thailand.

We asked you on our last blog update to pray for the Santa Clara KUMC mission team the Thai evangelism team that would be working with them.  And we know you prayed because it was a tremendous success.  Hundreds of people were served, receiving eye glasses, portraits, health checks, and electro-accupuncture.  And at the four locations this team served, over 70 Thai people were saved, receiving Jesus as their Savior.  Praise the Lord!

Here are some pictures of the outreaches.  If you do not receive the pictures, please click on this link and go to our blog to see the pictures  >>> http://msmorrissey.blogspot.com/

This was our first experience with electro-accupuncture, which uses electricity rather than needles for therapy.

The queue was long at Ta Phraya.

An Opportunity for Prayer

Prayer Warriors, we have a special opportunity for you to lift to the Lord in prayer.  When you pray, mountains move in Thailand.

Please pray for the Santa Clara Korean UMC Mission Team that will be coming to serve with the Thailand Methodist Mission on Feb. 9th.  This team will be joining a Thai Christian Evangelism Team to work together to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to Thai people.

The Santa Clara team will be doing the Lion's Club Eyeglass Program, and health checks, and electro-acupuncture, and taking portraits to give to the people who come to the outreaches.
While the people are waiting for the services of the Santa Clara team, the Thai Christian Evangelism Team will share one-on-one about Jesus Christ with everyone who comes.  They will also give Gideon New Testaments (Special thanks to the Gideons!  We have no idea what we would do without you!)

This team will be in three locations: Blessing Home Ground Zero in Pattaya, God is Good Church in Ban Bueng, and also at Ta Phraya in the Sakaeo province.

Ta Phraya is located right on the border with Cambodia.
The region in Ta Phraya that the team is going to was evacuated years ago during the Vietnam War and in only recent history has the Thai government been encouraging people to re-populate the land.
There is one church that we have helped to establish in Ta Phraya already, but it needs many more.  What makes this a special opportunity is that the region this team is going to has no Buddhist temples.  So we can plant churches and there is less resistance because Christians are the first to establish places of worship. So please be praying for this evangelistic outreach in this strategic location.

Pastor Banya (who leads the Life Center UMC and Blessing Home ministry) has travelled early to the region to speak with village chiefs and elders and prepare the way for this outreach.  Please also pray for his health, which is fragile.

On a note of praise, we are thankful to the Lord and to His Children who have been generous in giving to the Building Fund.  We have received $82,000 of the $110,000 needed for expanding the Blessing Home Ground Zero facility.  The goal is getting closer and closer.  Please continue to hold this in your prayers as well.

Three Praises

All of the TMM missionaries and the staff of both Blessing Home Centers would like to thank all of our prayer warriors and supporters for a year of great victories.  When you pray, mountains move in Thailand.  We would love to give praise to the Lord for three of the many victories that are answers to your prayers.

The FIRST victory is that we now have over 3,000 prayer warriors praying for the Pioneer Pastors and Blessing Home children and staff.  At every church that we have re-visited, prayer warriors come up and introduce themselves and let us know they faithfully pray for us and the Thai Christians.  And we know they do because we see the fruit of their prayers in Thailand.

We are also thrilled to see people forwarding the blog update emails and posting them in Sunday School and on church bulletin boards.  Thank you for broadcasting the good news.  As prayer warriors, you are the powerhouse of the mission.  We and the Thai Christians depend upon you.

The SECOND victory is that TMM missionaries Carol and Vicki opened the new Blessing Home Isan center and now more children than ever are being saved and protected from child sex and drug traffickers.

In 2014, 191 children received daily services at the two Blessing Home centers.  And they are making a huge difference in the lives of these children and their families.

We are hitting the target, reaching children who would be in the brothels and opium dens of Pattaya if it were not for the love of Christians like you.

Here are some of the stats about the children that were served at Blessing Home Ground Zero in Pattaya in 2014.
•  Avg. household income of the families served was $125/month)
• 55 of the children had been abandoned or orphaned
• 48 have guardians who are sex workers
• 31 have guardians who are addicts
• 22 children live in Opium dens (centers of selling drugs)
• 6 have guardians who are mentally or physically disabled
• 13 have guardians who are over 60 years old
• 20 children have chronic health issues

• 13 children are mentally or physically disabled

The THIRD victory is in the progress towards raising the funds for expansion of the Blessing Home Ground Zero building.  We need $110,000 and we have received $61,000 so far.  This is a victory in progress and we thank the Lord who Provides for all of our needs.
