I Fooled You All…

Well, I’ve tricked you long enough.  It’s time to pray.

Yep, It was all part of my master plan.  Suck you in with pictures, videos, stories of grand travels to exotic island locales.  Whet your appetites for more.  And you fell for it.  Suckers!

I didn’t even want to go to any of those beautiful, tropical islands – or those mysterious churches tucked away in forbidden Burma.  It was awful.  Torture!  I did it all, gritting my teeth – for a purpose.  🙂

I did it all to lure you in – and when the time was just right… POUNCE!  SPRING THE TRAP!

IT’S TIME TO PRAY!

All joking aside, we need your prayers.  Why?  How about the OPPORTUNITY TO DOUBLE THE NUMBER OF CHRISTIANS IN THE ENTIRE COUNTRY OF THAILAND!?

 

 

On the Road to Every Province in Thailand

100 plus Thailand Campus Crusade for Christ staff.  76 Provinces in Thailand.  2 Weeks to Reach Them All.

Time to hit the road.

With this goal in mind, we recently split up into small teams to make phone calls, set up appointments with churches, and then go.  Our objective is to help train pastors and church leaders in how to prepare for the Billy Graham My Hope project that has the goal in mind of sharing the gospel with 1 million Thai people from December 17th-19th.  At each meeting, leaders and pastors gathered from local churches to learn how they can go and train their congregations for this incredible moment in church history in Siam.

Take a look at some pics from my travels thus far below, but don’t miss the realty of the spiritual atmosphere in Thailand as you ponder the statistics.  Let the meaning of these numbers soak in… and then join us in prayer.

Continuing the Journey

The numbers above aren’t isolated, strange occurrences.  They aren’t distant provinces deep in the jungles.  They are in fact, bordering provinces of Thailand’s capital monster-city, Bangkok.

These figures are found throughout the country, other than 3 northern provinces which account for about half of the total number of Christians in the entire country.

Should these figures make us despair and give up?  Certainly not, rather these numbers should make us fall on God in dependence.


Ang Thong Province:

Ayutthaya Province:
