Akha Pastor in Pattaya is a Pioneering Pastor
We are pleased that Pastor Ahlong is participating in the Pioneering Pastors Program, and were able to supply him with some of the equipment needed for church planting, like this motorcycle.
Please pray for Pastor Ahlong, who is planting a church in perhaps the most difficult place in Thailand, Pattaya, the center of sex tourism in Southeast Asia. This setting is another one of his challenges. Most of his members sell hand-made crafts to tourists, and they are seasonal workers. Although some of his members live in Pattaya year-round, most will go back to the mountain villages in the North. This reminds me of the Hispanic congregation at our home church, College Heights UMC in Elizabethtown, KY. That was a congregation that had members who were seasonal workers as well, and it always presented a challenge.
Your prayers are needed. Thank you for your faithfulness.
