Dear Family, Friends, Partners in Ministry,
I must confess that yesterday was an incredibly joyful day when all of us connected to Grace Language School (GLS) (our ESL outreach into the community for our local church and for NTIM) along with our first team of volunteers from the USA since covid hit 2 years ago, got to do an amazing ESL outreach. We are so thankful for our partnership with Crosspoint Church in Gulf Port, MS and our close relationship with the Piper family. About 19 of us got into 2 trucks and a car and drove about 30 minutes to a school on the outskirts of our city (Chiangrai) and put on what we call an “English Fun Day.”
As I understand it, this school had never had a native English speaker come and teach English on their campus and let me tell you, these kids were pumped and very excited about having our team. Let me also tell you that we had a blast. We had lots and lots of fun. We even got a natural chance to share about the real story behind Christmas, which most had never heard before in their life. Imagine a place where you can grow up all of your life and never hear the real Christmas story. That place does exist actually in many places in our world but one of those places is Northern Thailand. What huge opportunities God has put in our hands.
y come to work with us and to go out together all throughout Northern Thailand, into China, into Laos, and all over Southeast Asia blessing this part of our Lord's world and being the salt and light of our King and reflecting His love to those who have never heard. Here is the link to see some of our pictures of our outreach activities yesterday but we have also included a short video clip of our time together yesterday.

Also, a special thank you to all of you who give to NTIM so that we can live and serve the Lord here right in the heart of some of the least reached people in our world today. Out of approximately 150 children that we interacted with all day yesterday, according to the statistics there were less than 2 or 3 of those children who were followers of Jesus and most of them do not know that Jesus died on the cross as the payment for their sins. How will they know if no one tells them?
email@example.com Thank you for your prayers.
May God richly bless you. Thank you for your generosity and for sending us to Thailand. Any gift you would like to make to our normal, everyday ministry, no matter how small or how large, helps us reach people who are the first persons in their entire families to know Jesus.
Until the People in and around Northern Thailand know Him,
Michael for the team
