ED Habal's Testimony

Written by

I praise the Lord for the opportunity to come to Thailand and teach computers. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I’ve been teaching free computer classes for years now in Hawaii but did not have very many students. I understand now that the Lord was training me for this trip. Information Technology/Computers is my specialty, it is the talent the Lord gave me to be used for his honor and for his glory. It also helped that the students were all fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. The Thai people also are a friendly people. These classes were the best classes I’ve ever had. Lord willing, we plan to return someday.

Crystal Krug's Testimony

Written by

The highlight of my visit with the Frederick Family in Thailand this month was having the chance to interact with and teach English to local kids at a public school in grades 1st through 6th. There were 4 days of the English camp, and each day was a new and exciting challenge. Day 1 Matt and I only had 15 students in our group but the other days proved to be much more difficult with twice as many students and half the attention spans as the older kids, they were a handful! Most days we had around 45 students, all who learned very quickly that right answers merited a Jolly Rancher! No matter how the English portion and the game time went, at the end of each day, the students were quiet when Matt presented the wordless book in preparation for the craft at the end of the week. We were able to teach Weather, shapes and colors along with the Bible lesson so that the kids could explain their version of the wordless book (a wiggley eyed caterpillar) to their family and friends. It was truly a blessing and an honor to be involved with the Fredericks in their ministry in Thailand. Please keep them, and the New Life Baptist Church in your prayers! Crystal Krug (October 2009)
