The Lord continues to raise our support for Thailand! We are currently at 10% of our needed monthly support in just two months! We have driven about 8,500 miles and have had opportunity to present the ministry in Texas, Louisiana, Georgia, Alabama, and Florida in the last month.
Life on the road is definitely different, but Lori and I love what He has called us to do, and churches have been very encouraging and excited about starting churches in Thailand. It continues to amaze us how the Lord provides things for us, big and small, as we depend on Him.
Survey Trip to Thailand
Praise the Lord that He has provided money necessary to purchase our ticket to go to Thailand in February! Thank you for those who gave many generous gifts toward this need. This was our urgent need to purchase the plane ticket at a reasonable rate, but we still need about $800 in the next 3 months for the other expenses associated with our survey trip.
If you would like to give toward this, you can send a special gift to:
Vision Baptist Missions
P.O. Box 442
Alpharetta, GA 30009
Or online at www.VisionBaptistMissions.com
The need for gospel preaching churches in Thailand is still great. The latest version of Operation World, the de-facto handbook for religious activity around the world, was released last month and shows the entire evangelical population of Thailand to be 0.5%. That is even lower than what we thought.
Never in the history of Thailand has there been a great awakening to the gospel. Please pray for a surge of laborers to Thailand!
Our Generation Summit
This December 31-January 1, we will be a part of the Our Generation Summit, a family-oriented missions winter retreat in Pigeon Forge, TN. We would like to encourage you to consider being a part. We have been involved in the Summit for the past 5 years and have seen God do incredible things every year! Some have described it as a missions conference on steroids, and we look forward to seeing what He is going to do this year. For more information visit www.bcwe.org
Yours for the Gospel in Thailand,
Philip and Lori Bassham
