Fruitful Startup


We had a blessed visit with Pastors Akerat and Da who have recently planted a new United Methodist church in Nakhon Pithom, a city that is about a one hour drive west of Bangkok.

They have a church building set (we are standing in front of it in the picture), and Pastors Akerat and Da and their son Meemo live next door. They had their first worship service two weeks ago and they had 30 people attend (17 adults- 13 children), which is a fruitful startup. Most of the adults work at night at the open air market which is in a field across the street from the church. Because the people work every night, their first cell groups are held during the daytime.

Pastor Akerat does much visitation on his small Asian motorcycle as well as a children's program where he teaches music (playing guitar and singing) and teaches the Bible.

Please pray for them. They have had many transitions and much work to do for the Lord. Pioneering is difficult, requires great sacrifice, and is often quite lonely. Your prayers make a difference.
