Pastors Jerron and On planted the Mai Ya church three years ago, planting cell groups throughout the unreached region. Many times, more than one cell group begins to grow rapidly, and two or more churches are formed to make a circuit. God blessed the ministry of Pastors Jerron and On, and now a second church, the Phayamengrai church, opened this year, and we see very rapid growth there.
A few months ago, new believers from the Mai Ya and Phayamengrai churches were baptized, showing the world that they have new life in Christ. Everytime we see the joy on the faces of these new believers and they tell us how Christ has made them new, we are just overflowing with great joy ourselves. This would not be possible without faithful Christians who support this mission. Thank you, for giving to the Lord. These are lives that have been changed because of you.
Phayamengrai church has very quickly developed a large children and youth ministry. Pastors Jerron and On approached us because they had over 40 children and youth coming to Sunday School and to Saturday School (one time per week was not enough!) to learn about Jesus Christ. They had no furniture, so the children sat on the floor and did their activities there. They asked if there was any way TMM could help purchase some tables and chairs. It was a great pleasure to be able to say, "Yes, of course."
Now, to a different location. Many of you generously gave to open a new Blessing Home center called Blessing Home Isan. It took awhile to find the right location, and then we had to build retainer walls and add landfill to raise the land about 5 feet, so it would not flood. Then we had to have water tank trucks come everyday to wet down the landfill, to make it settle and become solid so we could start building construction. We were all set last month to begin construction, but the contractor had a series of medical emergencies in his family and had to give up the contract, leaving us to find a new contractor. God led us to the right contractor, and he began construction 2 weeks ago. We hope to have the new center built and ready to move in by the end of January 2014.
