Dear praying partners,                                                                                                       January 2017

Happy New Year to one and all.  On January 1st, we celebrated our arrival in Thailand 14 years ago.  A lot has changed since then.  All of our children have left and have gone or are currently in college.  Our four children have now morphed into four grand-children with one on the way.  Thankfully, we are still able to continue to serve the Lord here because of your faithful prayers and support and special offerings.  This ministry in Thailand is truly our ministry (each of you and us) for the Lord in reaching the Thai people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.          

Church Events: We have received many special offerings to help with the expenses of the Cambodia missions trip.  Everyone is fully funded, reservations have been made, passports purchased, and now we simply wait for January 24th to see how the Lord is going to work.  Interestingly, our churches faith promise program has been in the black for several months now.  What a blessing that this small church can have a part in world-wide evangelism as well.  You can follow our travels and events on our facebook page.  Simple search for and add as a follower.

Outreach:  We have started live-streaming our services to be a help to those who are in locations without a church and hopefully allow unsaved in our community to see a service and understand what we do.  Many Thai’s have never been in a church and therefore understand all church activities such as singing and preaching in a Buddhist context.  In most Buddhist temples, the monk will chant in the Pali language and no one understands what is being said.  The fact that a Christian message is from a Bible written in an understandable language and the preaching is done in an understandable language is often quite surprising.  If you are curious, or have Thai friends that would like to watch and hopefully be encouraged, we are on You-tube live, New Life Baptist Church Chiang Mai, Saturday nights 2130 EST Sunday School, 2245 EST Sunday worship service, and Wednesday morning at about 1930 for our Wednesday night service.  We tried another outreach program last month by offering a short Creation to Christ or “Get acquainted with what Christians believe” course on Sunday evenings.  Two lost men joined together to study as well as two newly saved ladies. One of the men dropped after the first week, but the second man diligently came, listened and has been faithfully attending church since.  Please pray for this man’s salvation in the near future.      

Bible Institute:  Our Bible Institute suffered a set-back.  One of the students had to be suspended due to a moral issue.  So the school will be temporarily set-aside until we have more students.   

Please pray for:  Mike’s student’s and fellow teachers for salvation.  There is a man who come regularly but has yet to be saved.  Please pray for his salvation as well.  Backslidden members to return or find a good church.  Hannah (our youngest daughter) for her college school bill and her university studies.  A Bible school student to repent and return to school.  Al Allshouse (our associate) for ability in learning Thai.  Wisdom in ministry matters.  Results of outreach.

May God continue to bless you as you serve Him

For Christ in Thailand,



Mike & Francis Frederick  facebook:
