Dear Partners and Friends,
Blessed be the name of the Lord! We are pleased and honored to be one of the recipients of the 2021 Project Antioch Grants. Our sincere thanks to Bishop Talmadge Gardner and the WMM Council for awarding Thailand Theological Seminary’s ongoing building project (Project Account #74520P) the additional $50,000 grant. It was very much needed for the completion of its construction by August this year as scheduled. This building will be the venue for the graduation of about 300 TTS students in October 2021. It has a 1,000 person seating capacity. We also thank each of the donors and Dr. Terry Tramel and his staff for being an instrument to this endeavor through the "GO Offering."
Praise the Lord! The ongoing building project at Mekong Bible Training Center (Project Account #74015P) in Mae Sai is continually progressing under the supervision of Rev. Russell Board and Pastor Chi Chang (Director of Mekong Bible Training Center), with the help of Doug and Jill Nelson. Thanks to Valley Harvest Ministries in Dublin, Virginia, for their kindness, generous giving, and unwavering support for many years in keeping the project going until its completion and effectively training workers from the Indo-China area. Mae Sai is strategically located in the far north of Thailand near the Myanmar and Laos borders.
Praise the Lord! The vision of Pantamit Don Muang Church in Bangkok to be a church based training center is beginning to shine as the ongoing project on the fourth floor of the building progresses. This floor will be a lodging facility to accommodate 42 people with two large rooms (one room for 20 men and the other is for 20 women) and a room for a guest speaker. There will be a small lobby and bathrooms for men and women. Besides being a church venue, the building is currently being used to train small groups of workers who spend nights on the floor of the sanctuary and other available rooms. The initial funding of this project comes from the church members, and we believe others will help us to keep the construction going until it is finished. If you feel led by the Lord to be part of this endeavor, kindly send your donation to IPHC-WMM Oklahoma City under Project Account #74505P. Please join us in prayer for the additional funds of $30,000 to complete it.
Thailand has declared a state of emergency until the end of July due to the surge of infected cases of the Covid-19 pandemic. We are not allowed to gather nor have our church activities. We have been holding our worship services, Bible studies, and prayer meetings online for these past two months. The negative effect of this pandemic economically causes many people, including our leaders and IPHC Thailand/ACA members, to suffer financially. They could hardly pay their bills. In our Don Muang Church, we are trying to help one another, even in small ways, just to encourage one another. If you would like to be an instrument of His blessings to help your brethren in need here in Thailand, kindly send your donation to IPHC WMM Albert & Jiep Gonzales Ministry Account #20201M. Your kindness and generosity are greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your continuous prayers and unwavering support.
Your Co-laborers in Christ,
Brother Albert and Sister Jiep Gonzales
