Pray for Peace in Thailand

Thailand is a politically fractured nation with two political parties that identify themselves by colors, the red shirts and the yellow shirts (For a good news article, see the BBC news on this link > http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-25099105.)
These two groups have had many protests over the last ten years, however the last 2 years have been peaceful.  Now the protests have started up again, and the yellow shirts have invaded and shut down some government buildings in Bangkok.  Yingluck Shinawatra, the prime minister of Thailand, invoked emergency powers to gain control of the situation.

Please pray for peace.  Each time we have seen a wave of protests, they have been more severe than the one before.  And the last one was bloody.  Thailand is not near the point of civil war, but these protests make it trend towards danger.

It will mean a great deal to the Thai Christians, knowing that Christians in America are praying for them and praying for peace in their nation.

Mission Teams Info Meeting AND A Request for your Prayerful Consideration

For all of you who are interested in serving on a Mission Team to Thailand:
We have an information meeting at College Heights United Methodist Church in Elizabethtown, Kentucky on November 16 at 9am.
All of the information for the 2014 Mission Teams is on our TEAM THAILAND website at this address >> http://thailandmethodist.blogspot.com/

The mission in Thailand depends upon your prayers and financial support.
It is only through your prayers that the mission is fruitful.  And it is only through your financial support that children are saved from traffickers through the ministry of Blessing Home and churches are planted in unreached counties in Thailand so that all Thai people have the opportunity to know Jesus Christ.

Here is what we are asking you to do.  Please pray to the Lord for what He wants you to do.  And if the Lord leads you to make a commitment to support the mission, follow the Lord's leading.
So as individual Christians, pray to the Lord and follow him.
As Sunday School classes, UMW and UMM groups, and other groups, pray to the Lord and follow him.
As congregations setting your budgets for 2014, pray to the Lord to see if TMM should be on the church budget.

Here are some numbers to keep in mind.
$500 provides education, nutrition, and Christian care to save a child through the ministry of Blessing Home for one year.  Can you, or your group or church sponsor some children to save them from trafficking?

$4,500 plants a new self-supporting church in an unreached area of Thailand, expanding the Kingdom of the Lord into new territory.  This provides Biblical and Financial training and a business grant to a Pioneer Pastor to start a business that will support his/her family as they plant a new church.

$20,000 builds a church building for a rural church that has outgrown their place of worship.  This is the final step to making a newly planted church secure and permanent.  We encourage all churches that are doing building projects to pray about including a mission church in their plans as well.

Remember TMM for Christmas
Many faithful Christians and churches give special offerings to TMM for Christmas.
This year we are requesting special giving for the TMM Building Fund.
Our goal is to raise $60,000 by the end of the year.
As we have been building the Blessing Home Isan center, we realized we needed one extra large classroom that would also be used as a place of worship for the church.  Part of the funds would go towards completing the Blessing Home Isan building projects.
We also need to remodel a barn at Global Theological Institute that is currently being used as a women's dormitory (it is truly like a tabacco barn), but we need to make it truly livable.  We are also building two classrooms and a restroom building to replace the outhouses that are presented used by the students.
Please be sure to write "Building Fund" in the memo section of your check or online donation.
