A Great Start - May 2023
The Brown Family in Thailand – The Vital Message, Year 19, Number 1
It is crazy how fast the time is flying by as we launch our new outreach programs and prepare to establish the church among a completely unchurched village in northeast Thailand.
Our new outreach program is called Happy English. We spent much of the fall and early winter season remodeling a building to turn it into a multi-purpose training center. Then, in January, we launched our first semester of Happy English.
In the starting of this new outreach program, we were blessed to have every available student slot filled for our three levels of training. Classes included beginning English for children, conversational English for youth, and an entrepreneurship training class using baking as the first business model.
In addition to English and career training, we are also passionately focused on the eternal prospects for our students and their families. Towards the end of the first semester, we started integrating Bible stories into our lessons and the children were fully engaged with these stories.
The Happy English Community Center was not on our radar when we returned to Thailand in 2019. God has blessed us with resources to remodel the community center and launch the educational outreach programs. However, our budget did not include funding for ongoing operations of this ministry.
Here are several ways that you can pray for us:
Thank you for your prayers and your support for us as we work to bring Christ to the people of Srichiangmai.
As Assemblies of God missionaries, we depend on prayer and financial support from individuals, families, businesses, and churches. We work in partnership with donors in the USA and the family of believers in Thailand to spread the gospel throughout Thailand. When you support our work with a financial gift, you become part of our ministry team, reaching the unreached with the good news, bringing light into spiritually dark places, providing real hope to those who’ve never heard about Jesus. You can donate to our ministry as well as set up a recurring monthly donation and faith promise on our donor management page at https://giving.ag.org/donate/600001-293917.
