Fire of Glory Church Building Fund Update



We give thanks to the Lord touching the hearts of people to give generously to the Building Fund during the Christmas season.  Now over $77,000 has been raised to buy land and construct a building for Fire of Glory Church.  Pastors Somsri and Warin, veteran Pioneer Pastors, have planted 2 churches in unreached counties and have assisted in the planting of 2 more Pioneer Pastor churches.  At this time, Fire of Glory Church cannot grow larger because they are filled to capacity.  The new church building will enable them to continue to grow and thrive and plant more churches in unreached areas of Thailand.

We now have received enough funds to completely pay off the bank note on the land (we look forward to having a ceremony to burn the bank note!) as well as funds to raise the land by about 6 feet because it is a rice paddy at this time and needs to be raised above street level so it will not flood.
We will continue to raise funds now for constructing the building itself.

If you would like to give to help Fire of Glory Church construct a much needed building, please be sure to designate your gift to the Building Fund.

We praise the Lord for making things grow

1 Corinthians 3:6-9a
I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow. So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labor. For we are co-workers in God’s service.

New Year’s Day is always a very special day for us.  It is a day of thanksgiving and praise to the Lord for the wonders that He bestowed in the year 2017.  As we see all of the myriad ways God has blessed the Thailand Methodist Mission, it humbles us because we know it is all because of the Lord.  We are just workers in the fields fulfilling the purpose for which we were called. 

Your faithfulness in prayer and generous financial support bless us and the Thai people, and the Lord has made things grow.  You make this mission possible and we are thankful for your service to the Lord. 



























In 2017, the Lord blessed this mission in numerous ways:
  • ·         Over 300 children are receiving weekly services at the four Blessing Home Centers.  It is always thrilling to see the children in their school uniforms, knowing that they will not be in the brothels and opium dens, but instead have a bright future.
  • ·         Three unreached counties that never before in history had a Christian Church now have one planted through the Pioneer Pastor Program.  In 2017, churches were planted in Nonthaburi, Chachoengsao, and Ubon Ratchatani provinces.  Now there are a total of 35 churches planted in formerly unreached counties in Thailand.
  • ·         Seventeen students graduated at Global Theological Institute, receiving their Bachelor of Ministry and Master of Ministry degrees.  These graduates serve at churches throughout every region of Thailand.  Now there are a total of 76 graduates in the past 5 years, and many of them have planted new churches.
  • ·         Thailand Methodist Mission provided the majority of funds to purchase a Sunday School building for Prasiri UMC in Bangkok.  This provides permanence and security for this church.
  • ·         A children’s building was built at House of Immanuel Church in Buriram province so they would have a place to teach the Bible to children.
  • ·         Over 85 Thai Christians are members of Abundant Life Savings Groups and are making vital progress in saving money for emergency funds, getting out of debt, and learning family budgeting and small business management skills.  We see their progress as they get out of debt and send us pictures of themselves cutting up credit cards.  We see them develop as they speak with joy about having saved money for emergency funds for the first time in their lives.  We see happiness on their faces, as they learn and save together.

New Year’s Day is special to us, for another reason.  We look forward to this coming year and all the wonderful blessings God will shower down upon Thailand in 2018.
Through your continued support, we will continue to work “in the field” to bring the love of Jesus to Thai people.

Our goals for the Thailand Methodist Mission for 2018 are:
  • ·        2 or more Pioneer Pastor Churches will be planted in unreached counties in Thailand (please pray as we are interviewing pastors and leaders now and seek God’s Will).
  • ·        Curriculum and videos for the Abundant Life Savings Groups will be completed and a group of trainers will be educated and developed.
  • ·        We will begin planting churches and ministries in the Southern region of Thailand.  This region has a high percentage of the population is Muslim.  Four of the provinces in the Southern region have a Muslim majority.  We need your prayers because ministry must be done in a different way here, especially in the Muslim majority provinces.  Please pray for safety for the Thai Christians that will work with us in this region (and for us as well).
  • ·        Blessing Home Centers will become places where Thai Christian leaders from other ministries can come to be trained in ministry to children and youth.  TMM missionaries can help train Thai leaders and missionaries from other organizations for fruitfulness.


Sherri and I are honored to serve as your Ambassadors for Christ to Thailand.  We wish you a Blessed New Year!

And a RE-POSTING of an important article for online donors

Please Read: Crucial Information for Online Donors

Thailand Methodist Mission has recently needed to change our online giving portal to QGIV since the former company, JustGive has now closed.  All of you who have automatic monthly donations through JustGive, your donations stopped last month.

We are asking all who are have automatic monthly donations through JustGive to please continue to set up a recurring monthly donation through QGIV by clicking on this link >> https://secure.qgiv.com/for/thametmis/
Your giving is crucial to the operation of the Blessing Home Centers and other ministries of the Thailand Methodist Mission.

Our website (thailandmethodist.org) is currently being renovated and should be up and running by the end of January.  I (Mike) tried to change the old website to link online donors to the new QGIV site, but it was beyond my abilities.  So I am waiting for the website renovation to be complete.  However, I was able to change the link on our blog at http://msmorrissey.blogspot.com/ so that it directs online donors to QGIV.

We are grateful for your faithful support of the Thailand Methodist Mission.
