The Thai students are finishing up their current school year. Since March to May are the hottest months of the year this is the time for summer break for the students. Our family recently had the last gathering until after camp at Nong Phok, the church in the community about 1 hour and 20 minutes from where we live, where we go weekly to teach English and love the kids there. We served them pizza, pepperoni or seafood flavors. The favorite was seafood, with ketchup on it. It was a blessing watching them enjoy it.
Most times there are between 30 to 45 students who show up to learn and be in community. God has blessed this time together. One of the Thai men who owns the coffee shop connected to the church has been coming up to read Bible stories to the children in Thai. We also pray with them. Please join us in prayer for this ministry and for more workers to come serve in this community.

The camp in Bangkok is about to start. We are planning on taking a group of 23 to Bangkok for March and April for a four week camp. Students arrive in Bangkok March 11 and will stay at the Muang Thai Church. The team has been preparing for the camp and the theme this year is "You are what you believe". Each week has a different focus- You are able, You are special, You have choices and You are a Child of God. We have asked Believers to come lead devotions each morning for the students. We have asked them to weave in their testimonies and stories to share with the students. Please join us in prayer that these times will be fruitful in sharing the hope and love of Jesus for these Buddhist students.
We would like to share the nicknames of each student attending camp and would ask you to put them on your daily prayer list. God hears prayers and we covet your prayers more than anything else. It doesn't matter if you can pronounce the names :). God knows them because they are already his.
