God Is at Work In a Challenging Time

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

It is the end of the rainy season here in northern Thailand, and the “cold” season will soon begin, with temperatures below “20 degrees” Celsius at night.

In the last three months, we haven’t done much external activity in the ministry because of increase in Covid-19 cases in Thailand. At the beginning of August, it peaked at around 23k people who got Covid-19 per day, but now it is down to 11k, some days, so it is on the right track.

Our ministry during these three months has not stopped up because of this. We have not been able to do some things, but we have had a lot of contact with people through Messenger, Facebook and telephone, and we pray for people almost every day.

There are many who are hungry for the Good News now. We have several who wants to receive Jesus, and we have also experienced people who have been healed trough prayer, but we have also experienced some challenges especially in connection with the Covid-19 situation.

An Eager New Christian and Baptism

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

Here are some news from us in Northern Thailand.
In the West, summer is just starting, while summer in Thailand is over and the rainy season has begun. The Thai school year have started too, but due to local Covid-19 outbreaks, it is home school for our children. For the same reason, we have not been able to start our weekend school

We have nevertheless been able to do a lot in the ministry. Among other things: We saw a woman in her twenties receive Jesus in May, and this month she was baptized.
You can read more about this and other news from the ministry in this newsletter.
(Remember to watch a video from the baptism!)

Great Openness and the Third Wave

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

Here in Northern Thailand, it is the hot season and summer time now and the school holidays should have soon been over, but there is a third wave of Covid-19 here, so the school start has been postponed, and we don’t know how long? This applies to both our weekend school and our three children’s schooling.

I know most people are tired of hearing about Covid-19, and we all hope that it will soon be over, so we can start planning things again, and living normally. We are also very much looking forward to that, but we are a bit behind Europe and the States when it comes to vaccination, so possible we have to wait longer?

Just before the new Covid-19 wave hit here in Thailand, we were luckily to be able to have a big and successful Easter party at our weekend school, where we experienced a great openness. There was also a woman who recently wanted to receive Jesus who was at this feast.
This newsletter will be about this, plus some news from us as a family

From Shutdown to Growth

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

About a year ago we had to shut down the weekend school and much of our
ministry because of Covid-19. Within a few months, a couple who worked
with us for almost three years also left.

We did not know how things would be when we partially started up our
ministry again in August 2020, but most of the children still came to
our weekend school even though we had closed it down for over five
months, and we had between 15-25 children until Christmas time.
 
This newsletter will be about growth and progress in our ministry, and about and the situation in Myanmar. Feel free to read to the end.

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.

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.
