Dear Churches and Friends, September October 2017
We were able to help start a church in the city of LamPhun, about an hour south of Chiang Mai. We helped Cornerstone Baptist Church for two years. However, our group from the university area is growing, and we are unable to continue to travel to LamPhun. The Lord has blessed our group and Cornerstone Baptist church in LamPhun is growing. Therefore,we have decided to attend Bible Baptist Church in Chiang Mai instead. This Bible believing church is a church plant that has also just started. Our attendance has been a great blessing to the church. I have been preaching the Sunday morning message, and ask for your prayers that my language skills improve.
On recent semester break from college, three of our recent converts were able to travel home. This was their first trip home since becoming Christians. All three experienced grief. All are first generation Christians in their homes. This becomes very difficult times for families. Family members are often fearful and confused at what it is to be a Christian. The opposition that comes from families is hard on a new Christian. It then becomes difficult for a new Christian to stay in church and grow spiritually. Pray that these three young men, ToToe, Daet, and Bluem don’t become too discouraged, but grow stronger in the Lord. Thanks for your prayers and support. They are greatly appreciated.

Song of Solomon 8:6-7 – Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned.”
