We want to thank all of our fellow Kentucky United Methodists who helped to purchase this pickup truck for Bowin UMC. Now they have a means of providing transportation to some of their congregation who would not be able to go to church unless someone picks them up. Pastors Jerron and On described this pickup to us as a "truck that seats 15 people" In our minds, we imagined a huge truck but forgot that 15 Thai people can easily fit into a regular size pickup. We joke about this vehicle as being a "15 Thai" or "8 American" sized vehicle.
Pastor Kyung Hwan Oh and Mrs. Soonok Oh of
Cerritos (CA) KUMC visited us for several days to see the Mission in Thailand and spend time with the Christians here. It was a blessing to fellowship with them. They first went to China to spend time with the Christians there and then they came here. Pastor Oh prayed for the city of Pattaya where we are in the midst of planting cell groups which will form a new congregation there.
Today (Sunday, August 19), the polling places are open all over Thailand as Thai citizens vote on a new constitution. Please pray that the results of this election will bring about peace and unity here and that it will lead to new elections soon.
