Bangkok, Thailand -

Aiming to reach more attendants for the upcoming Easter, the ministers of Immanuel Church co-working diligently while setting up more group Bible studies as a channel to raise students according to their respective levels.

By the grace of God, there were three newcomers who attended the recent study where a brief introduction of the Bible and a message entitled ‘Bible as the Light of Life’ were delivered. Following a time of sharing and discussion after the study, it is encouraging that the students expressed their interest to learn more in the future.

Among the newcomers, Brother Mek has been raising many questions regarding life. Expressing his joy of finding answers in the Word, he shared, “As I have been asking many questions, it appears to others that I am a crazy guy. I tried to search for the answers but it didn’t satisfy my heart. Thank you so much, I now know that the Bible has a deep spiritual meaning within. I discovered that the Bible is interesting to study. I can feel that my heart is released as I received much comfort through the study.”

As the ministers resolve to walk the path of the cross with faith and obedience to the Word, it is with hope that many lost souls would be comforted by God during this period of Lent.

Meditating on the deep meaning of the path of Cross and love of Christ, the ministers will be striving towards keeping the daily standards of 3 hours each for evangelism, teaching and self-study. Various mission strategies and deep conversational approaches will be deployed and evaluated from time to time to challenge mission with the method of faith.

It is with hope that as the ministers resolve to challenge mission following the path of the Cross daily, they would experience resurrection in their mission field throughout the season of Lent.

Bangkok, Thailand – By the grace of God, the 3-days leadership training begins in Bangkok Immanuel Church where the local leaders were exhorted to persist in mission with faith in the active presence of God.

Firstly, the theme of faith were explored in greater detail through studying the faith of Abraham who obeyed the calling of God to leave his comfort zones though he did not know where he was going. Instead of being overwhelmed by expectations of the future, the leaders were reminded to take each step forward with faith in the promises of God that will be fulfilled in His time.

The study of Isaac’s faith in both his father and God that led him willingly subjecting his life to their will. In addition, Jacob’s eagerness for God’s blessings which led him to wrestle until the end further spur the leaders to seek for greater gifts in faith and persistence for mission breakthrough.

The last day, the Bible study series on the ancestors of faith drew to a close with the study of Joseph. Through the study, the leaders were inspired by Joseph who never wavered in his faith towards the predestination and plan of God despite facing unending challenges in his life. Rather than finding excuses to give up amidst difficulties in mission, the leaders were encouraged to set up greater faith towards the God of Immanuel

A time of evangelism soon followed with a renewed passion to reach more people in deeper conversations and faith in God’s promises. The training then continued with a seminar that identifies each other’s strengths and weaknesses that enabled them to know each other better. Through this seminar, the leaders were urged to co-work better in unity and bear each other’s burdens in love and a serving heart. For greater effectiveness in church growth, the roles of every leader in the church were further discussed and defined.

It is with hope that the hearts of the leaders will be renewed to pursue mission in faith and unity as the training prepares to enter the final day.
