The 13th Alliance Church Association (IPHC Thailand) Annual Conference on April 27th to 29th in Pak Chong, Rachatsima was a success. There were 140 pastors and leaders who participated: 30 of them were installed as Mission Workers, 8 as Licensed Ministers and 24 were ordained as Ministers of the Gospel. We were encouraged and amazed to see more and more workers in the vineyard to carry out the Great Commission. The teaching, preaching, worship and fellowship were awesome and the presence of God blessed every one of us. Hallelujah! Thanks to our National Director, Dr. Wallapa Wisawasukmongchol, Russell Board, Jeff Willhoite and the team from NC (Rose Boyd, Phillip & Holly Bland and Lou Spencer) for doing their role/part to make this event meaningful and blessed. Praise the Lord! Another conference followed on May 9th in Khanchanaburi. The Lord allowed us to host and organize the Igniter Training Conference with the help of Pastor Tewa Sangamangmoon (one of our leaders) and in coordination with Mike Maksimowicz and Pastor Jerry Heyne. It was attended by 90 pastors and leaders from different denominations. Praise the Lord! At the end of the event, during the altar call, the participants responded positively in committing themselves to reaching out to the unreached people in Thailand- both Thais and tribal groups. Indeed, we were ignited! Moreover, a woman possessed by an evil spirit was delivered. Glory to God! We were also able to minister to the children at a nearby village of Pastor Tewa’s church that day. There were about 50 children who came and gladly received gifts from Ignite the World Ministries. It reminds me that “Jesus loves the little children”
The Pantamit Don Muang Church is growing!
Praise the Lord! There were seven (7) new believers baptized recently from Pantamit Don Muang Church. The church is not only growing spiritually but also in numbers. Jiep and I are honored and pleased to lead this church and also serve as missionaries. We thank God for Pastor Phillip Bland, of Bizzell Grove PH Church in NC, for the powerful preaching during the Sunday morning worship service at the church on May 1st and revival night service on May 2nd. The Lord was glorified and the people rejoiced for His presence. Thank you Pastor Phillip! Thank you Rose Boyd for bringing the team to Thailand to be a channel of His blessings.
Church Project and Dedication
We were honored and privileged to be part of the team led by Dr. Wallapa Wisawasukmongchol in the ground breaking of the new church in Ratchaburi on May 22nd. The Lord led us to contribute financially even in a little way for the construction of the Motana Philadelphia Alliance Church. We also had the opportunity to join the church dedication of the Mae Chai church in Phayao (North of Thailand) on May 29th. It’s good to see the ministry keeps growing by the mighty move of God through His faithful people like you. Thank you for your continued prayers and unwavering support.
