Our biggest project that we are working towards at the moment is the building of a multipurpose facility that will allow us to reach the nations for Jesus at a greater capacity. It will also strengthen the integrity of the outreach platforms we have created and will continue to create in the future. We believe this is our way of saying to the darkness “we are here to stay”. The building will be strategically located between two major universities in Chiang Rai. This entire project started with a vision and God has been faithful to help that come to life. This building project was sectioned into 2 specific phases. The first phase of this project was about vision and the purchasing of the land. We are overjoyed to share with you that we have purchased the land and have entered into the second phase of the project. The second phase includes partnering with construction volunteer teams, as well as raising the last part of the funding. We are abundantly thankful for all the generous donations that we have received over the year. If you have not given and would like to, we are still taking donations. We are asking all of our friends and partners who have not given to this project to please pray about giving to this very strategic cause. We are requesting that all funding from the U.S.A. or other countries outside of Thailand for this specific project to be routed through NTIM. All of your donations to NTIM are tax deductible. Checks can be made out to NTIM, P.O. Box 26115, Birmingham, AL, 35260 or you may donate online here http://gontim.org/main/donate/.
Another project we are working on currently is related to Christmas. Christmas is one of the most natural ways to share the story of Jesus to the Thai people. Every year NTIM and Baan Athitaan Church takes special effort and care to make the most of the time and financial resources that God has given us to share the love and message of Jesus in Northern Thailand. We have many events that will surround the next two months such as university and community outreach. We will also be doing specific outreach in a few villages where we will have the opportunity to share the message of Jesus Christ through the telling of the Christmas story. Please pray for our staff, volunteers, and the people we will be ministering with this Christmas Season. Pray for our planning process that God would guide us to do what He wants us to do and say what He wants us to say. God is at work in Northern Thailand and we are so thankful that He is allowing us to work alongside Him.
