Reaching – Planting – Training - Serving

Christ said that the opportunities for the harvest would be great, but the workers would be few, and this has never been truer than it is today in Thailand. The harvest is great...but there are so few workers. Lord, send us workers for the harvest.

We see our purpose in Thailand to be facilitators of the Word through an array of programs that reach the never-reached, planting churches where none exist today, training up a new generation of missionary and Thai church planters and disciple makers, and serving compassionately those who are at greatest risk in our community. 

Prayerfully consider joining our team, either as a prayer and financial supporter or as a member of our ministry team in Thailand. A month, a year, or a lifetime, whatever the length of service, your presence with us in Thailand will have an eternal impact on the Thai people you serve.

We are publishing a daily prayer request on our Facebook page. Follow https://www.facebook.com/TheVitalMessage for the latest prayer needs and updates.

The Brown Family News & Prayer Update
The Vital Message, Year 16, Number 2
It's hard to imagine something positive coming out of what's now a 9-week Coronavirus lockdown but with God, all things are possible. 

Those who knows me (Tammy) know that I love to bake. Therefore, as Easter Sunday approached, I decided to bake cookies for the people who live on our floor in our apartment building. I included a note that told my neighbors Happy Easter, that we were praying for them during these pandemic times, and that Jesus loves them. As a result, I meet Ann and Christina, two Korean Christian women.
A few weeks later, I made brownies and labeled the plates with Isaiah 41:10. 
Isaiah 41:10 - So do not fear for I am with you, do not be dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

When I knocked on Ann’s door she showed me the Easter note that I had given to her. It was taped prominently on her refrigerator door. Ann got very emotional as we talked and told me that she feels depression setting in. She said her husband works in another city Monday thru Friday and she is alone at home with her ten-year-old son. I prayed for her right then and there. She threw her arms around me and hugged me for a very long time while she cried.

At that moment God put it on my heart to commit to her that I would ask one of my Korean missionary friends to help me do a Bible Study on Zoom with her and Christina. Sonny speaks Korean and therefore can help me to bridge any language gaps. Ann said she knew May, another Christian in the building, and she would ask May to join us as well.
Ann asked that we do the Bible Study in English so she can improve on her speaking skills. We had an initial meeting and we are continuing the Bible studies through Zoom. Although we will each be in our own home, I’m baking something special for the ladies before each meeting and dropping it off at their doors before we start.
People from all backgrounds here in Thailand are hungry to know our God more intimately (and also hungry for some homemade baked goods, HaHaHa!). Please pray that more will join us in this Zoom Bible study, that we will all grow closer to the Lord as a result, and that this will become a catalyst for reaching people from all nationalities who live in our apartment building.

While we never dreamed that we'd be living through an extended lockdown where getting together with our neighbors face-to-face could result in an unplanned trip to the district jail😮, God has been faithful, allowing us to continue to minister here in Thailand. With the latest news that the virus is likely to be an issue here in Asia for a year or more to come, I guess this is going to be the new normal. If so, I'll embrace it and continue to push forward with the opportunities God has given me.

Prayer Requests

The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man accomplishes much.
- James 5:16(b) MEV
Did you know that everything we do in Thailand is only possible because of you? As missionaries serving among the least reached peoples of the Buddhist and Muslim world, we depend on your daily prayers and monthly financial support. Both are critical to our ability to continue in our ministry. Please join with us in prayer over the following critical areas:
1.   Pray for Ann, Christina, and May, that they will grow strong in their faith and bold in sharing their love for Jesus with those around our community who do not know Him.
2.   Pray for our family, that we will continue to make wise choices as we balance our desire to reach the lost in Thailand while staying clear of the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak.
3.   Pray for government officials here in Thailand as they balance their desires for a robust economy with the need to protect the citizens of the Kingdom from the virus.
4.   Pray for patience for all as we wait out the impact of the virus and adapt to the new normal.

As Assemblies of God missionaries, we are dependent on prayer and financial support from individuals, families, businesses, and churches. We work in partnership with our donors back in the USA and the family of believers in Thailand to spread the gospel throughout this country. When you support our work with a financial gift, you become part of our ministry team, reaching the never-reached with the good news, bringing light into spiritually dark places, true hope to those who've never heard about Jesus. 
You can make a one-time donation to our ministry as well as set up a recurring monthly donation and faith promise on our donor management page at http://give.thevitalmessage.org/. On the donor website, click on "Give Now" to make a one-time donation or "Set up New Recurring Schedule" to set up a faith promise and an automatic monthly contribution.

We are truly a blessed family. At a time when the entire world is gripped with fear and uncertainty related to the current Corona Virus pandemic, our supporters continued to give. We actually received nearly 96% of our budget for March, giving us sufficient funds to do what we are called to do throughout the month of April. Thank you to everyone who is sacrificing deeply to support our work here in Thailand. And thank you to all who are continually lifting us up in prayer. Your prayers and sacrifices are having an eternal impact on the lives of many here in the Kingdom of Thailand, even during a pandemic.
