Freedom weekend

Every day counts! This week some of our new friends asked us if we could do something over the long weekend (this Friday was a red day). So we decided to hold an encounter, a "Freedom weekend" as we call it in LifeCenter. So on Friday morning we started and what a weekend we had! Totally seven people people have been with us. We have had a lot of fun and food and we have been teaching the Word and praying together. This is such a great way to get to know one another and at the same time help these precious people find the liberating life principles in the Bible. (The picture above is from the bookshop when they got their own Bibles.)

On Sunday we went together to the Jaisamarn Church at Ramkhamhaeng Soi 68. This is the first Thai church that we visited when we came to Bangkok in 2007. When we, for the first time, saw hundreds of Thai worship Jesus, we had tears in our eyes. This time we had the honor to share the Word. We were treated like royalties but had to leave directly after the service. We had to press through the traffic jam to our own LifeCenter service at one oclock. So far there has been new people every Sunday and we feel like we have got a family of youth in Bangkok. Thank you Jesus!
