Dear Churches and Friends, July August 2019
We had one young man (Note) come forward for baptism this past month. He believed on Jesus Christ about a year ago. We have several other young men that are candidates for baptism as well. Each has received Jesus as their Saviour, and each has been coming to church and Bible studies. However, they are reluctant to follow the Lord in this important step of obedience. For some believers in Thailand it is difficult to follow this ordinance ordained by Jesus. There is an undercurrent of fear from family and society to step out and stand with our Lord Jesus Christ. In addition, our young men are first generation Christians. So, they have no good Christian example to follow. They are setting the example, which is not easy for Thai men.
One of our goals at Bible Baptist Church is to teach and train these young men to be good leaders in the church. Consequently, we try to provide opportunities to practice what they have learned by doing different outreach ministries. One outreach ministry is going to children’s homes. We recently went to a home that cares for about 60 children. The Thai young men put together a gospel message where each one had a part. They also took their violins and played a couple of songs for the home. These young men do an excellent job and are getting more and more comfortable giving the gospel. Thanks for your prayers and support.

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
