Dear Friends & Family,
Thank you for praying for us as we serve in Bangkok. I don’t have any major events to report on but I do want to give several updates so that you know how to best pray.
In our last prayer letter, we asked you to pray that God would provide some house help for Sun. Praise God that He has provided woman to come help with some household tasks and cleaning five days per week. This allows Sun to spend more time with the children, and homeschooling, as well as some other projects that she has wanted to work on. It also means that I am needing to do less dishes and cooking as well.
Time with Students
In the past, I have not been able to get to know students as well as I’d like, but this term I have started eating lunch with them two days per week. This informal time provides more opportunity for relationship building and talking about things that they are thinking about or going through, whether related to class or not. Recently, a couple students have been asking me about what it looks like to emphasize grace in preaching and what that means. It is encouraging to hear these kind of questions because much of the preaching in Thai churches is moralistic and there are not enough models of Gospel-centered preaching for people to see. Pray that Bangkok Bible Seminary students and graduates would have a firm grasp on the Gospel of grace and what it means to live by grace, not by works.
