Prayer Request: Week of June 23rd, 2019
Although the Gospel arrived in Thailand nearly 200 years ago, 95% of the 80,000 villages in the country still didn’t have a church. Our partners in Thailand focus on taking the Gospel to over 75,000 villages that have never heard about Jesus. A comprehensive national church database diligently records where the need is greatest, and accurately demonstrates where churches are being planted, in real time (see Christianity Today, April 2019). This past January, 520 new Christians were baptized in an outdoor service! In village after village, Thai people who have never before heard the name Jesus are now following Him. This surge of church growth is so rapid that they have a hard time keeping up with the demands of training house church leaders and providing Scriptures to new believers. What a wonderful problem to solve!
Please pray for the rising tide of new churches in Thailand. All praise and thanks to the Lord!
