Today is one of those days when I have been reflecting on the goodness of God as He has expressed that goodness through what we call “partners in the ministry.” Let me give you a brief picture of our work first and then let me speak to various areas in which we want to say thank you.
As many of you know if you have been friends on Facebook with us for any length of time, God has allowed the Johnson family to be a part of His plan to take the message of Jesus into some of the least reached people groups in our world today that are living in the heart of the area in and around Northern Thailand. Over the 19 years we have lived here in Thailand, we have seen hundreds of people from this part of God’s world become the first or second persons in their entire family to become a follower of Jesus. Less than 1 person in every 100 people in this part of God’s world know Jesus as their personal Savior yet even amongst millions and millions of people who have yet to hear the gospel clearly even for the first time, God is doing something amazing in our day by allowing us to be a part of Him reaching into some of the least reached peoples and seeing people give their hearts to Jesus and begin this transformation process of what we call “discipleship.”
We could share so much about what God is doing but today we want to be clear and say a special thank you to a group of partners in ministry. We have one group of “partners in ministry” that live here and work alongside us every day as we seek to advance the Kingdom of God here on the field. We are so grateful for the Thai and Western partners God has given us as partners who work the fields of God’s harvest every day and pour out their lives so that God will be honored and His kingdom expanded. But today we want to say a special thank you to another group of partners in ministry that are also very critical to God’s Work getting done here. These are the partners in ministry that support us through finances, prayers, advocacy, and encouragement. To this group of “partners in ministry” we want to say a special thank you today.

If you are one of those people who sends in a donation to NTIM from time to time on our behalf, we also want to say THANK YOU and to say to you we promise to be good stewards of these resources.
If you are one of those people who sends in a donation to NTIM every month to assure God’s work is supported on a regular basis, we want to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, and THANK YOU and we also want to say that we promise to be good stewards of these resources.
If you have ever prayed for us and asked God’s blessings on the work of NTIM, we want to say THANK YOU.
If you are one of those people who prays for us from time to time, we want to say THANK YOU.
If you are one of those people who really understands that we are living and serving God in enemy territory and prays for us every single day that we might be the salt and light of Jesus among the nations, we want to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, and THANK YOU.
