Mission Team and Fire of Glory Church Building Updates

First a reminder for those who are interested in joining the Mission Team.   Then an update on the Building Fund for Fire of Glory Church.


WHEN?: February 23, 2018 - March 5, 2018

  • We will visit Blessing Home Ground Zero in Pattaya.  We will be taking the Blessing Home children on a special treat... we will all go to the ZOO.  Most of these children have never been more than a few miles away from home, so this will bring joy to their lives.  We will also paint and do some work on the Blessing Home building so that it can be beautiful for the children.
  • We will help with English VBS Camp at our newest Pioneer Pastor location, Sai Noi Church.  This will be the first VBS in this county and we expect this to have a huge impact on this community.
  • We will visit the homes of Blessing Home children and other families in the community to pray for them and bless them.   
  • We will also take some time for a tour of Bangkok.

Please join the Kentucky Conference VIM Team by contacting the VIM Team Leader, Dr. John Kalz via email >> johnkalz@buechelchurch.org

Fire of Glory Church is bursting at the seams and needs a building.

Pastor Somsri and her daughter Pastor Warin.
They are Pioneer Pastors of Fire of Glory Church

Fire of Glory Church meets in the home of Pastor Somsri, which is just one large room.  Her home, which serves as the church building does not have any bedrooms.  Pastor Somsri's family and the homeless people she takes in, sleep on the floor and pack up their belongings every time the church meets.  She gave up a good job and a nice house in order to be a Pioneer Pastor.  And God has blessed her sacrifice and the church has grown to the point that they can no longer all fit into her house.  They need a building.

The members of Fire of Glory Church are setting aside special offerings every week to buy land and build a church building, but it will take them over 25 years to be able to do this on their own.  

So we are requesting that every supporting individual of the Thailand Methodist Mission, every supporting church, every supporting church group (Sunday School, UMW, UMM, Youth Groups) will take up special offerings during Christmas and even special offerings each month so we can help them with a building.  This will help the church to grow, since it is at capacity now.  $150,000 is needed for the Building Fund, and we have just received the firstruits of giving towards this fund.  $4,000 has been received.  

We will keep posting the progress.  Please lift up this need in your daily prayers.
