Give a Meaningful Christmas Present

I, Tore Johannessen, work as a missionary in Northern Thailand and I lead a ministry among immigrants from Myanmar, the Shan people.
One of the things we to is to run a weekend school for around 30 children.
Christmas is approaching, and we need some donations for our events and gifts. Our biggest expense item is gifts.
In December we we have a Christmas party, with food, sweets and gifts for around 70-80 people.
We have 30-40 children that we want to give gifts to plus around 20 families.
We need around 1000USD for this.

Baptism and Opposition For New Believers

Newsletter from Tore and his family working in Northern Thailand among the Shan people from Myanmar

The rainy season is soon ending, and we are waiting for the winter to come out here in northern Thailand. That means: Clear weather and cool mornings. This is the best time of the year, but it’s still a bit hot and humid here now, so we’ll have to wait for a few more weeks.

We recently had a baptism, we have started up Sunday meetings again and at the end of August we saw a couple receive Jesus.
The new Christians have also experienced some opposition because of their new faith.
We have seen a total of seven people receive Jesus during July and August.

They will crucify you

One of those who became a Christian recently comes almost every Sunday. She lives near our weekend school.
One Sunday she did not come, and Mawkkham went and visited her, while I taught English in the afternoon.
After one hour, they returned together. Mawkkham told me: When it was a Buddhist holiday a couple of days ago, their boss had asked why they did not go to the Buddhist temple in the village. She said they had become Christians now, so they did not go to the temple. The boss had then said contemptuously: If you have become Christians, then they (i.e. us) will soon do with you as they did with Jesus, crucify you.

Encouraged Many Shan During a Difficult Time

Like most people in this world, we are still influenced by the Covid-19 situation, even though other things have occupied the news lately.

In Thailand, there are not many cases of the Corona virus now, and things have started to open up a bit more, but there is still a state of emergency and curfew at night time until the end of this month, at least.

People in Thailand are beginning to feel the the negative effect of this situation financially as well, and we have been able to providing some hope and help to some of those affected, such as poor Shan people in orange farms and rice fields.
We will tell you some stories in this newsletter.

A World in a State of Emergency

Here is a new newsletter from us in Northern Thailand, and we are not unaffected by the world situation here in the north of Thailand either.
It is a State of Emergency and curfew here as in many other countries in the world today.

In this newsletter I will include how we experience the situation out here and a how it affects our ministry and everyday life. We haven’t shut down all ministry, and I want to share about that too.
