First, I (Mike) want to thank all of you for your powerful prayers for me while I was in the hospital. I had a prostatitis for a few years (and didn't know that I had it) and it turned into a sepsis infection that damaged my heart and organs and I also developed pneumonia. Praise God, the damage to my heart and organs has reversed and my lungs are clear. God is good! I was healed by God through your prayers. Thank you!
Now that I am healthy again, I will be re-scheduling to visit churches from September through December. If you would like for us to come to your church, contact us via email at email@example.com.
Second, I would like to announce that our mission is working together with Pastor Pranee to plant a new Pioneer Pastor church in Thungkwang county in Chonburi province. This county has no Christian church and over 5,000 people live there. Last year, Pastor Pranee planted a Pioneer Pastor Church in Huathanon county, 12 miles away from this location. She will serve on this circuit of two churches, proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ in an unreached places. Because of your faithful giving, we were able to give funds to help Pastor Pranee to build a simple house in Thungkwang, that will serve as her residence and also as a home church. Please keep Pastor Pranee in prayer.

Thai new believers are of all ages!
Both of these Pioneer Pastor Churches are daughter churches of Promise Church, which is led by Pastor Somchai. Pastor Somchai sent us a video of baptisms of new believers at his church.
Please take time to watch the video and enjoy. It will warm your heart and is worth taking time to be blessed by it.
Finally, I would like to thank you for your faithful support that has allowed us to send food relief to the Thai pastors serving in urban areas. The lockdowns in the urban areas of Thailand have devastated the economy. This lockdown will continue for many months because the Delta Variant of COVID has spread to all of the provinces in Thailand. At this time, only 14% of Thais are vaccinated. Please pray that the vaccination efforts will increase. Your prayers make a difference!
