Last Sunday, we surprised Pastors Dang and Maow of Prarachagit UMC, the first United Methodist Congregation located in the capital city, Bangkok. We surprised them by showing up unannounced for Sunday morning worship, and it was a blessing.
The congregation is small and spirit-filled. We were especially blessed when 3 women went up front to sing a special new song, teaching the congregation to sing with them. They sang with passion for the Lord and their love for the Lord was contagious! Two of the women demonstrate a real gift for leading worship.
But the highlight of the service was when a young couple gave their lives to Jesus Christ. They came to the front of the church, and Pastor Dang and us laid hands on them in prayer. We pray that they will grow to be strong disciples for Jesus Christ.
Prarachagit church joined the UMC last month. Pastors Dang and Maow now receive support that allows them to be full-time, and this frees up their time to work for the Lord more so there will be more fruit to their ministry. This young couple who came to Jesus Christ last Sunday was evidence of how their ministry in Bangkok is effective at making disciples.
Pray for the Lord to raise up more Christian leaders, both lay and clergy, all across Thailand.
