Latest from Thailand

Check out the latest letter from the Flinchum's mission to Thailand: June 2020

Dear All, 


In spite of so much negative and bad news we are happy to report that God's Kingdom is still moving in Thailand! Whenever we receive word that new believers have come into the Church we are elated! And we thank you for your faithful and loving support of this ministry! And we are happy to report that ALL of the home parents and children at the homes we minister to are well with no one having been infected by COVID-19!

 We continue to visit supporting churches throughout the summer although we will be unable to visit all of them at this point. But our plan is to schedule speaking dates in those we have yet to visit early next year. Two things we always emphasize are our visits with you and monthly updates of our ministry in Thailand!

 As we had mentioned previously, Mike is planning to return to South East Asia in early September, circumstances permitting. He is scheduled to teach at two Bible Colleges and one church leadership seminar in Myanmar (Burma) this Fall. And of course, ministry with the orphaned, abandoned and refugee children await him in Thailand as well.

 Again, thank you! And God bless you!

 Mike and Debbie

Latest from Mid India Christian Mission

To Salem Church of Christ,

I am reaching out to share with you a few pieces of media to share among your team or congregation!

 child opening present  Ladies receive their presents   Christmas Pageant    
nurse papers   church up   church construction

Included you will find some photos of our nurse assisting college program that just recently was approved by the government of India! We also have the ad for the new nurse assisting program that's running locally in India as well for you to get a peek at the facility! We are so proud of this project coming to completion.


You will also find photos of our team working hard to finish our Mercy Home for Boys building. We have the 3rd floor (of four floors) completed and are beginning to plaster the inside and outside of floor one!


Thirdly, you will see a few of our Christmas photos -- of our Christmas pageant from our Mercy Home girls and of the gifts we were able to distribute to all of the villages where our Asha Learning Centers are present!


And finally, a photo of our latest church plant construction project. We are just now starting to lay the foundations for a new church in Batiagarh. (We ask that you do not share this last item online or on social media in order to avoid any persecution to the community.) 


We hope you enjoy these assets and will share the latest from Mid India with your staff and congregations! We would not be able to do all this work without you!!


In Him,
