On December 5th, we hosted a two-church youth meeting. Several teens from Nakhon Nayok Baptist Church (an hour away) came to join our teens. We had a total of 20 young people. Four young men from Bangjak Baptist Church in Bangkok lead in the event. There was singing, a really silly skit, games, sharing of God's Word, and of course, eating. Most of the teens from Nakhon Nayok were non-believers and it was their first time to hear anything about God. Praise the Lord for seeds planted that evening!

December 5th also happens to be King Bhumiphon's birthday and so it is Father's Day in Thailand. On Sunday, December 7th, we had our first Father's Day celebration in our church plant. Our friend, Rick Caynor, shared his testimony and about how God is our loving and caring heavenly Father. The kids and teens performed skits, several songs, and Bible verses in English, and sang a song of encouragement to four dads and other adults who came to the event. Three of those dads had never been to our church before. We were so delighted that they stayed for the lunch fellowship and chatted with us. We continue to plant seeds in this hard soil.
