Dear Churches and Friends, July August 2018
Bible Baptist Church is going well. This last month we had several new visitors. Most were invited by our college students. We also had two young men get saved; both are students at the university. Their names are Non, and Note. Both had come to Bible studies and to church for over a month before getting saved. Life is not easy for Thai’s after salvation. Our group is nearly all first generation Christians and face not just spiritual opposition, but emotional oppression. Emotional oppression comes from family and society. One example: a new Christian is made to feel like he betrayed his family and Thai tradition by becoming a Christian.
In addition, we just finished a three part tract series. The three tracts are an explanation of God, sin and salvation. The culture here is a mixture of Buddhist and animism. Their view of words like “God” “sin” “heaven” “hell” and “eternal life” are different than what the Bible teaches. Many Thai’s think Christianity is a western foreign religion. Consequently it takes time for some barriers to come down before a Thai will understand what salvation is. Therefore, our prayer is that these tracts will give a clear meaning to each term using verses from the Bible. Thank you for your prayers.
