Prayer needed for Vicki

Hello Prayer Warriors:

TMM Missionary Vicki Brown needs prayer.  Vicki is heading in for knee surgery on Wednesday.  Vicki is the Director of Blessing Home Isan and is the Master Teacher for the Blessing Home ministries.  She develops curriculum and trains missionaries and volunteers who serve at Blessing Home.  We know she wants to heal and get strong quickly so she can serve the children and teens whom she loves dearly.

The leaders of the church at Blessing Home Isan
pray for healing for TMM Missionary Vicki Brown.



























We are claiming James 5:16
Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.

Your prayers are powerful and we are blessed to have faithful prayer warriors like you.  Thank you!

We know you pray faithfully for this mission because we see the Lord at work every day.  Every month, Thai pastors contact us about new believers being baptized at their churches.  And it is a great privilege to meet these new believers, hearing about how the Lord has given them abundant life in Christ!

Below are a couple of baptism pictures we received from Loepahan Church just yesterday.

Mission Team and Fire of Glory Church Building Updates

First a reminder for those who are interested in joining the Mission Team.   Then an update on the Building Fund for Fire of Glory Church.


TEAM THAILAND 2018


WHEN?: February 23, 2018 - March 5, 2018

WHAT YOU WILL DO ON THIS MISSION TEAM?
  • We will visit Blessing Home Ground Zero in Pattaya.  We will be taking the Blessing Home children on a special treat... we will all go to the ZOO.  Most of these children have never been more than a few miles away from home, so this will bring joy to their lives.  We will also paint and do some work on the Blessing Home building so that it can be beautiful for the children.
  • We will help with English VBS Camp at our newest Pioneer Pastor location, Sai Noi Church.  This will be the first VBS in this county and we expect this to have a huge impact on this community.
  • We will visit the homes of Blessing Home children and other families in the community to pray for them and bless them.   
  • We will also take some time for a tour of Bangkok.

Fire of Glory Church is bursting at the seams and needs a building.


Pastor Somsri and her daughter Pastor Warin.
They are Pioneer Pastors of Fire of Glory Church

Fire of Glory Church meets in the home of Pastor Somsri, which is just one large room.  Her home, which serves as the church building does not have any bedrooms.  Pastor Somsri's family and the homeless people she takes in, sleep on the floor and pack up their belongings every time the church meets.  She gave up a good job and a nice house in order to be a Pioneer Pastor.  And God has blessed her sacrifice and the church has grown to the point that they can no longer all fit into her house.  They need a building.

The members of Fire of Glory Church are setting aside special offerings every week to buy land and build a church building, but it will take them over 25 years to be able to do this on their own.  


So we are requesting that every supporting individual of the Thailand Methodist Mission, every supporting church, every supporting church group (Sunday School, UMW, UMM, Youth Groups) will take up special offerings during Christmas and even special offerings each month so we can help them with a building.  This will help the church to grow, since it is at capacity now.  $150,000 is needed for the Building Fund, and we have just received the firstruits of giving towards this fund.  $4,000 has been received.  


We will keep posting the progress.  Please lift up this need in your daily prayers.

Global Theological Institute - 3rd Graduation Ceremony

This past week we had the privilege of participating in the 3rd graduation ceremony of Global Theological Institute, which is a ministry of the Thailand Methodist Mission led by Drs. Tanapong and Muanreedee.  17 students graduated with B.Min and M.Min degrees.  Now a total of 76 graduates from the Global Theological Institute, serving all across Thailand.


The graduates bow as everyone lifts them up with prayers of blessing.

Three of this year's graduates are Pioneer Pastors, having planted the first church ever in counties in Thailand that have never had a Christian church before.

Global Theological Institute graduates Pastor Arpan and Pastor Weelahwan pioneered the Blessings of God Church in Chachoengsao province.  Pastor Arpan received her M.Min degree and Pastor Weelahwan earned her B.Min. degree.  Blessings of God Church is the only Christian church in Samet Tai, a rural county with a population of over 5,000 people.
