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.
