A New United Methodist Church Opening in Nakhon Pithom
Pastors Ekerat and Da moved to Nakhon Pithom today to the plant a new church there. They have much work to do. The building needs to be cleaned, painted, and made ready for worship. Right now, the building is just a tin and concrete shell with a few hanging light bulbs.
Ekerat and Da will be investing their time in planting cell groups in the area. There are already some members there who are strong leaders to work with them, so we expect fast growth in this new church.
We want to give our thanks to St. John's UMC in Aiken, South Carolina for sponsoring Pastors Ekerat and Da. Because of their generosity, a sub-district in Thailand that was unreached now has a church opening there this week.
On a different note, our friends Peter and Nuc will be going on a pilgrimage to Israel next week. They are very excited and we are happy for them. We wish every Christian had the opportunity for pilgrimage to the Holy Land. A pilgrimage makes the Bible come to life by giving context to the stories of Scripture. It is an enriching experience.
Peter is a student at Phayao Bible College who is completing his 3rd year of study. This year, he will serve as an intern at Pradumri First UMC in Chonburi.
