Akha gathering in Pattaya

Yesterday, on Nov. 17, we joined Pastor Sarah of Pradumri First UMC and Pastor Nimmit, a new UM pastor from the Akha tribe. He is planting a new Akha UMC church in Pattaya, and we had a second organizational meeting at the beach sidewalk in Pattaya. Twenty four Akha hill tribe Christians came to the meeting, taking a break from selling their handcraft items to tourists. Everyone was very excited about starting this new church. The problem we have is that we need a place to meet that is accessible by walking for the Akha people. Pattaya is a very expensive city, so we cannot afford to rent a building there. Please pray that God will provide a building that we can use on Sunday afternoon or evening for this new church.
