Very Engaged Children

Our Saturday and Sunday school goes well, but has decreased some in numbers since we started it up this winter. It is mainly the oldest children/youth, from 13 years of age and upwards, we struggle to get engaged.

We have the opportunity to reach out to more children on our Saturday and Sunday too, but we are not able to do it at the moment since we only have one car.

Mawkkham does a very good job with the youngest children on Sundays (4-9 years old) and they are very engaged. The days Mawkkham does not come, the children always ask for her.
She is good at making them interested in hearing Bible stories, and even those up to 13 years listen carefully to her when she tells stories and teaching from the Bible.

We still gather between 10-17 children each week.

The following would have been a grate help for our ministry:  

  • Volunteers who could helped us with English teaching and youth ministry
  • Visits by team
  • A car we can use in our ministry. It will be used for picking up the children etc. We have more children we could have pick up as mentioned, but it will be a bit too much driving with only one private car

     

  • A local couple (or one person) who could help us in the ministry. Teaching Shan, Thai, Burmese etc. (and financial support for this)

    If there are anything you could help us with, from volunteers, teams, donations and not least in prayer, please contact us!

    If it is only to visit us for one our two days too, you are very welcome!

We have had two weeks summer holiday in our ministry. I mid May we started up our Sunday and Saturday school again. Some people had sadly left to another city, for better work, but there where also some new children that came.

We have possibilities to reach out to more people, but because of our small team and lack of another car we are not able to pick them up at this time.

Mawkkham have started to do more Sunday school teaching now for the smallest children, she has not been able to do so because of her pregnancy.

One Sunday she asked them if they had some prayer subject. One girl said: Pray for my mother and father. My mother is pregnant and they arguing all the time now.
A few days later we had a meting for new believers, and both of them came to our meeting, and heard the Good News, it was the first rime for the father to come any meeting like this.

A Need We Have
A need we have right now is to have one more car.
At the moment we only use my car and it's difficult to run the Saturday&Sunday school when I, Tore, are not there. I will also go to Norway soon for two weeks.

We could also have picked up more children/youth and be more efficient if we had a car for the ministry.

Pleas pray with us for this.  (Please feel free to contact us for more information, if you want to help)

We also pray for volunteers who can help us with children and youth ministry and teaching English for a shorter or longer time (see Teams&Volunteers).

In the last month we have had a small Easter party and celebrated Thai New Year, Songkran (a water festival) togather with the youth and the children from our Saturday and Sunday school.

We had planned a larger Easter party, but because it coincided with a Shan Buddhist festival, we were not able to gather so many. But about 30 people came, also some adults and we had Easter eggs, food, sweets and we shared the Easter's message.

During Songkran we had around 20 youth who came too. Before we went out and had a water fight, I shared with them that they are very important. They are all VIP's.
The Shan people really need to hear this, as many people have a low self-esteem.

I also teach more English now and there have bee coming some more local Thai's from the village we  have our ministry in too.

A Need We Have
A need we have right now is to have one more car.
At the moment we only use my car and it's difficult to run the Saturday&Sunday school when I am not there. Like now when we will travel to Myanmar.

We could also have picked up more children/youth and be more efficient if we had a car for the ministry.

Pleas pray with us for this.  (Please feel free to contact us for more information, if you want to help)

We also pray for volunteers who can help us with children and youth ministry and teaching English for a shorter or longer time (see Teams&Volunteers).

We are in one of the hottest months of the year now, and the summer vacation has already begun out here, but in our ministry we are not going to have a vacation right now.

This newsletter will mainly be about a piece of land we have rented for our ministry: Good News for the Shan, which has been an answer to prayer for us and has a great potential for the future and we have already seen some good results by just having it for a few weeks.

Got a Heart for a Village

When I moved to Thailand as a missionary for the first time in early 2000, I was quite sick and did not do a lot of ministry, but I had a motorcycle. I took a ride on my motorcycle every day on a hill where I had a good view of the whole Fang valley, and I prayed for the Shan people and that people should hear the Good News here. I also prayed for a village behind this place, and this is where we now have rented a piece of land and have a lot of our ministry.
I got a heart for this place and the village, but it was quite far (about 30 minutes with car) from where we started the ministry I was part of until 2016 (2003-2016) and we did not have much activity there, just a few sporadic house churches.
