Dear Family And Friends,
Mike has been back in the States now one month. His travels were safe and uneventful and we are grateful, as always, to the Lord for this! He is currently preparing to teach a 6-weeks Bible study for the Adult Sunday School class at Salem Church Of Christ beginning May 1st. He has been asked to lead a study of Basic Bible beliefs (Christian Doctrine). He is also co-leading a small group on Wednesday mornings. Debbie continues to teach her weekly Thursday morning Ladies' Bible Study group and is now coordinator for the Hospitality Ministry at the Salem Church.
We are also preparing to visit churches we were unable to visit this past year once Mike’s class concludes in early June.
Covid cases in Thailand, since the beginning of the pandemic, have surpassed the 4 - million mark. As of this month of April, Covid related deaths have exceeded 28,000. Approximately 73% of the Thai population has received two doses of the Covid vaccine while about 36% has received boosters.
In spite of the restrictions caused by the pandemic the Good News continues to be spread in Thailand and in Myanmar. Please pray for the ethnic groups in Myanmar who are still being attacked by the Burmese military. We thank so many of you who have given to our refugee aid project this year and to I.D.E.S. for their faithful and generous donations for food and medical relief for quite some time now.
We thank you, humbly, for your partnership in supporting evangelism, education and care for orphaned, abandoned, underprivileged and refugee children in Thailand!
With Grateful Hearts!
Mike and Debbie
