|Global Theological Institute in Chiang Dao, Thailand|
But even though it is humble, in the past 4 years, this ministry has produced 35 Bible college graduates who are now serving in ministries all over Thailand and in Laos too. Two serve as Pioneering Pastors with the Thailand Methodist Mission. This has been a very fruitful ministry and we are privileged to serve as visiting professors and TMM partners with GTI, helping with funds for economic development and other projects.
Drs. Tanapong and Muanreedee, directors of GTI, invited ambassadors and their families from many different nations to come as VIP guests to this past graduation ceremony, which was held at a nearby resort. The ambassadors and their wives came and have been generous givers to help remodel the chapel and the men's dormitory.
Look at the before and after pictures of the inside of the chapel.
|BEFORE (bare unpainted concrete floors, it was like being in a barn, but we use whatever is available and affordable at the time)|
|AFTER - tile floors, nice ceiling and lighting, bright walls. What a blessing! A great transformation.|
Through your help, this woman has undergone several operations and is now able to walk and can do light lifting. She and her daughter received Jesus 2 years ago, and we have never seen two Thai believers who were so hungry to read God's Word. Every day, both mother and daughter read the Bible and other Christian books, and they always have tons of questions to ask us. God has called the mother into the ministry, and soon the mother will begin as a Bible student with TMM providing scholarship funds for her.
This is the first guardian of a Blessing Home child to go to Bible college. Praise God!
