of Prasiri Bangkok UMC in 2008
In 2008, we helped Pastors Sila and Wassana plant the Prasiri Bangkok UMC. Through the years this church has moved to 3 different locations. At their present location, the church owns one house which was converted into a sanctuary, and they rented the house next door, which is used for Children’s Sunday School and also has the only restrooms and kitchen for use in either building. The house was being rented with a contract to buy the house by December 2017. If they did not buy the house by then, the owner would sell the house to another buyer.
Pastors Sila and Wassana told us that they were short by 400,000 Thai baht ($11,700 USD) and that the church was unable to save up enough money to meet the deadline, putting them in crisis. After much prayer we gave a gift through TMM to Prasiri Bangkok UMC to complete the purchase of the church building. We are thrilled that this church is now a permanent church, that is both self-supporting and owns their own building. God is Good!
