Dear Churches and Friends, July August 2017
Paul says in Corinthians that “there are many adversaries”. That is certainly the case here in Thailand. Spiritual oppression is very strong here and has been for hundreds of years. As a result, there is strong resilience against the word of God; however, there are open doors as well. And God’s word is always stronger than the opposition. Consequently, we were very pleased when we received our new leather bound Bibles. It was neat to see the smiles on the young men’s faces when they each received a nice gold-trimmed leather Bible.
One of the young men recently saved, ToToe, asked to be baptized. This is encouraging because he asked to do this on his own. In Thailand, it is easy to influence someone to pray the sinner’s prayer or to get baptized… So, one needs to be very careful that the influence comes from the Lord and not from the missionary. After his request to be baptized, we did a study on baptism with the group. That way all had a better understanding of baptism. Christians here have very little teaching on even the most basic doctrines of the Bible. Consequently, I try to teach each doctrine carefully. Thanks for your prayers and support. May this be fruit to your account.

Romans 6:4 – “Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.”
