Rev. Paitoon is one of the key leaders from this group
and the man responsible
for organizing the event among the Baptist Convention. Paitoon studied with us 24
years ago in our very first Bible Training Center. He was a 17 year old kid back then....he is a
prominent, highly respected leader today. What a blessing to see Paitoon and
dozens of other LWMI graduates who are faithfully serving in the ministry. Our
original vision when we came to Thailand was to "Train National Christian Leaders
to Minister the Gospel with the Anointing of the Holy Spirit." This has
been the benchmark of our ministry all these years. Now we see the fruit of
that vision coming forth in abundance. "Jehovah Jireh... do Your thing!"
Our goal was 250 ministers, but I truthfully
expected about 200. When 350+ came I was impressed. Of course that meant an
extra 100 beds and 1000 more meal servings over the three day conference. We
are confident that the balance of the conference budget will be met. We kept
the budget as low as we could; the total event cost us $7000.00. We were
blessed with $1500.00 from our local church here in Thailand and the partners
of LWMI have given $2210.00. We extend a hearty thank you to all who sowed
their seed towards this event. Your gift was invested in good soil! Earlier this month we hosted a team from
Water of Life Church in the USA.
The team was a great blessing to our ministry as they blessed our children, our
youth and our bible school students. Tremendous outreach opportunities opened
up as well. Four villages were targeted for evangelism and medical clinics.
Over 400 patients were seen in the clinics. The team also ministered in three
different schools to over 900 children. The majority of these children were
from Buddhist background, who heard the message of God's love towards them
through Jesus Christ for the first time. It's like a giant net that is being woven
Every conference, every outreach, every life
that is touched and every church that is built.....A net of salvation, healing
and peace with God is spreading across the land. Tens of thousands have already
been "caught." Multitudes more are on their way.This really is fun!
What a better way to invest our life than to
help people to know and experience Jesus Christ and God's love towards them. Thank
You for partnering with this ministry. We are privileged to serve God in His
ministry and to represent you in foreign missions.
God Bless You Richly!
