Nong Phikun is a beautiful rural area, where they grow many things, especially corn. They type of corn grown here is used to make corn oil. We are resourcing Pastors Rungroj and Somjit for agricultural projects which will support them in their ministry. They have many plans, including building a fish farm.
This is how we do church planting in Thailand, we help train pastors in the Cell Group method of church planting and we help them form business plans and coach them to implement them, so they can support themselves. Self-supporting pastors and churches are permanent ministries.
Please pray for Rungroj and Somjit as they prepare to pioneer once again. Your prayers make the difference. Also pray for their youngest daughter, who is in the picture with them. She is in her final year of high school and will remain with friends of the family on Sichang Island, so she can graduate. This is a big transition for her as well.
