Beach party with baptism

What a weekend we have had! Amazing! This Saturday was our LifeCenter trip to the beach. We were playing in crystal clear water, playing volleyball on the white sand, enjoyed good food in the shadows of the trees.

Everyone seemed to have a great time. 39 people had come with us. New friendships were formed and we believe this weekend will effect the rest of this year in a very positive way.

The best part was the worship time. Simple worship, some testimonies and a message illustrated in the sand. All wrapped up with a baptism. Powerful day of celebrating Jesus and his church!

Toys for my boys

Today we have been in some parts of this town that we have never been to before... We passed the weapon shops on our way to the Instrument shops. So far in LifeCenter Bangkok we have only used a guitar when we have come together to worship.

Today we visited more than ten shops, playing, listening and comparing prices and different models. We had a lot of fun together with the boys of the band:
Chaart - worship leader and guitar
Pop - guitar, base, keyboards
Jean - keyboards
Boy - drums, base
Nut - guitar, base, drums
(What a boy band!)

Music has such a power. Music creates atmosphere and life. Just think of what the right soundtrack can do to a movie. The Bible speaks quite a lot about music and intruments. Worship is a mighty weapon.

We ended the day on Black Canyon Coffee with a long detailed list of instruments, prices and notes. We want to honour God with our music, then the instruments are important. (We need a base guitar, two amplifiers, one keyboard and a drum set. We have already some money to buy this, but not enough. Totally we need around THB 90 000 ( SEK 20 000, US 2 700). This Sunday we do a special collection for this in LifeCenter. Please let us know if you want to be a part of this but can´t come. You can transfer money (marked with "Instruments") to our Thai account:
