Dear Praying Friends,
Since first moving to Phuket, God has seen fit to use us to start an international church. Recently God has opened the door for us to begin a Thai language church here in Phuket also. One of our Thai friends has invited us to start using a room at her shop to hold our meetings. Her shop is centrally located and we meet in a very nice room on the second floor.
Our friend's 15 year old daughter recently attended an English evangelistic camp with our family and trusted Christ. Please be praying that the Lord would use these new church meetings to bring many Thai people to Christ.
As we come to the close of 2011, I want to share an excerpt from a note that Joy and I just received from one of our church members.
“David, with your teachings it always seems that you have a message direct from God that had to do with my life at that time. I want to thank you for your time every week. Without coming back to church and admitting that I need Jesus Christ in my life I don't think any of the last year would have been possible.
Without Jesus Christ, You David, and You Joy, I really don't see how we could have made it through this past year. But God has a plan and with Jesus Christ in our lives I have a new faith and hope I did not have last year at this time. Jesus Christ gave us the strength to keep going. I have witnessed the change this past year and it seems to be happening faster every day.
Thank you again for all your time, teachings and prayers.”
How much value can we put on a life that has been touched by Jesus Christ? Our goal and reason for being here is to introduce people in Thailand to the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you so much for partnering together with us.
Yours for Thailand
David M. Speights
