Please pray that the Lord will send a new Media/ Radio Trainer to assist with the many opportunities for Christian media ministry in the Asia Pacific region. We continue to develop and expand online training but there is a need for more face-to-face contact with groups in countries such as Indonesia and Thailand. Pray the Lord will call the right people to this work.
Praise God that BMS’ partnership with the Thailand Karen Baptist Convention (TKBC) has enabled the training and sending of women evangelists to plant churches. Pray God’s wisdom for BMS workers Paul and Sarah Brown as they work with TKBC.
Members of the Aldor* Bible storying team in Southeast Asia have had to flee violence in their home areas. Pray for continued connection to teammates so they can keep going with their work. Pray that the team can focus amid the political crisis in the country where Aldor is spoken, and that God would give them grace and wisdom to manage their stress. *name changed for security reasons
CMS mission partners I and S are based in Southeast Asia, where they lead an international congregation, teach English classes and come alongside people to preach, teach, disciple and help lead them into a transforming encounter with Jesus. Pray for both I and S to get to know students outside of class, for God to show each of them who to come alongside and invest in.
Pray for the Karen people in Thailand and thank God for the Thailand Karen Baptist Convention (TKBC) and their work spreading the gospel and encouraging people in their faith. Pray for the TKBC, that the opportunities they have for mission workers to collaborate with them in community transformation will be appropriately filled.
Martin and Joyce (from the UK) will move to Thailand to serve with WEC’s International Directors as Deputies, having served as Directors of our EastWest College in New Zealand recently. Pray for Renate who takes over that role. The college is very low in students (mostly from abroad), so pray for more new applicants particularly from New Zealand in 2023, and for the two short-term workers from the College spending 1-2 months abroad in this holiday break.
Give thanks for 10 new Christians baptised at the end of July at Fullness of Joy Church in Bangkok, Thailand. There were 6 women and 4 men. Some were elderly, some young. Among those baptised, there was a village leader, a cook, a cleaner, a young man recently released from prison. Please pray for these new believers as they learn to walk with Christ each day and to find their place in his body.
