Beloved in the Lord Christ,
How are you? It was a surprise for the reporter to see that no one from Somprasong 4 had left for Chayapoom to be at the Christian Homestay as planned. Brother Thong-in had telephoned to call off the meeting due to very heavy rainstorms in the North-East. So the team from Somprasong 4 did not get to go there, and SisterSanan will continue to be in Bangkok until the Lord gives a green light for her to make a move.

Fellowship at the Table
Bill McDonough, Director, Partners in Progress (PIP), shared his mission experiences with the congregation. PIP has worked in 58 Countries, and is now focusing on four: Cambodia, Myanmar, Guyana, and the Caribbean. Bill makes sure he recruits health care personnel to work on board the Ship of Life wherever he goes. In Myanmar, 20 Christians meet in house churches as it is illegal to hold a meeting with more than eight people. Sister Winsome and her mother are among the faithful worshipers there.
Bill and Marie-Claire McDonough will return to Myanmar as soon as they get their visas renewed. We were greatly encouraged by their presence in the morning assembly.
