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!

A Karen Woman Received Jesus
Our main ministry is close to a city called Fang, but we also follow up house fellowship in Chiang Mai. We went there last week and we always feel very welcome.
This day, a Karen woman came to our house meeting, she was sick and had recently started to believe in Jesus. She had been going to a Thai congregation for six months.
Even though she already believed in Jesus, she had not prayed to receive Jesus in her life, so today we prayed and led her in this.
We encouraged and pray for healing for her too, and she was visibly encouraged and happy for it.
She has problems with her muscles and legs in her body. She has spent a lot of time and money on finding out what it is, but no doctor has given her a clear diagnosis.
Remember to pray for her!
House Church is Growing
We have house fellowship/church almost every evening, and on Fridays we go to the village where we have our land and Saturday and Sunday school.
We have a monthly gathering at out land now, where we gather around 20 people including children, most of them are new Christians.
There are several Shan who have become more interested.
A married couple where the husband had problem with drinking, said he had stopped drinking now. Before he never came to our meetings and did not talk to us much, but now he is very interested and he is eagerly talking to us.
We also help a woman with a few months old child, where the man left her when she became pregnant.
We recently gave a toy troller to the child, soap and some food for this woman. She is also a lady we regularly follow up.
The picture shows the woman, the child and what we gave to them.
