Hello from Thailand!
We and our team landed in Chiang Mai last Tuesday night (Thai time). Our first two weeks of ministry have been going very well. We are in the city working with a ministry called Lighthouse In Action. They are doing a lot of work all over Northern Thailand. Here in Chiang Mai they have teams working with the kids in the slums, doing relational ministry in the red light district of Chiang Mai, and a outreach to buddhist monks. They are also who first got us connected with Nahong and still are senders to various villages. It’s been really cool to see all the good things God is doing through this ministry and hearing all of the testimonies. We have been a part of the Monk outreach, intercession for the red light ministry, english teaching, renewing the new ministry center and are planning on doing slum kid ministry.
The new Lighthouse center here in Chiang Mai is a 6 story building and they are in the process of painting all the walls white to turn the center into a “blank canvas”. Teams with artists then come in to paint a prophetic mural in each room. Cheyenne is working on fixing a mural right now, and she LOVES the opportunity to paint and create.
Yesterday our team volunteered to help teach English with a ministry called Abba house. We didn’t know what to expect, only that they needed help and we were available. It turned out to be an awesome experience for us and the team! The team split into two’s and taught four classes at three hours each. They were part of an accredited English class at Maejo University. It was really good experience for our team before going to Nahong where we will be English teachers. The students are now filled with confidence because if they can handle teaching a university class, they can handle grade school!
So, our time here in the city has been fruitful and encouraging. We have one more day here and then we will head up to Nahong. Please be praying for our team as we follow God’s call to bring His love to Nahong!
Love, Luke & Chey.
