Dear church family
Thank you for your encouragement, support and prayers for our church missionaries Gerry and Yahui. They left for Chiang Mai in June 2012 and have completed 3 terms (total 9 years) of missionary service with the Deanery of Thailand. They will continue serving for one more term till June 2024.
I have attached their latest prayer newsletter to this church bulletin and summarised a few key highlights below. As the Lord provides and enables you, pls consider freewill giving to our church Mission Fund for their support, especially for the education of their three children. May I encourage you to communicate with Gerry and Yahui regularly and keep them in our prayers. Thank you.
Thailand’s COVID-19 third wave has tapered down, especially in Chiang Mai, albeit some clusters still surfacing in districts near St. Andrew’s Centre. Thank you for praying with us.
ST. ANDREW’S CHURCH: Online church services and cell meetings will continue till the end of June. We thank God for regular attendance of 40 to 45 members. Pls pray that our church members will continue to cling on tightly to the Lord despite the challenges due to the pandemic.
COMMUNITY LEARNING CENTRE: We thank God for the opportunity to befriend the boys who have been hanging out in the carpark in the evenings. Gerry and Khun Mai (our housekeeper) refurnished our old goal post for use by the boys and they were elated. Pls pray for the boys to respond to God’s work in their lives, for relationships to be built and for opportunities to share Christ.
SIRIAUNDA SCHOOL (ST. ANDREW’S ANGLICAN SCHOOL): (1) We thank God that Khun Boe, the mother of one of our students (Tin-Tin) contacted Yahui to share that her whole family (Grandmother, Father, Mother and 2 children) have accepted Christ and would like to attend St. Andrew’s Church. Praise the Lord of the Harvest for His redemptive grace at work. Pls pray with us that the Word of God will take root in the lives of Khun Boe, Tin-Tin and family. (2) Pls pray for our parents and children that they will experience God and receive Christ, especially in this time of difficulties and uncertainties. Pray for all the children as they return to school on 14 June and that they will be able to adapt to the C-19 precautionary measures and school life. Pls pray for our school director, teachers and school staff for God’s strength, wisdom and grace as we nurture the children.
