Chad and Sarah Inman Prayer Letter: Growth, Salvations, and an Amazing Conference

Chad and Sarah Inman Prayer Letter: Growth, Salvations, and an Amazing ConferencePastors’ Conference

May ended well with a Pastors’ Conference organized by Thailand Team Leader, Bro. Tim Shook, and Bro. Curtis Hall of BEST Missions. National pastors from all over Thailand came to be encouraged with like-minded believers. Encouragement abounded as Spirit-filled, growth-challenging sermons were preached by Pastor Bob Gray from Longview, Texas, and other men of God. We thank God for the work done in the hearts of pastors, workers, and church members. The conference spanned from Wednesday night into Friday night. Preparations were made months in advance: music, food, transportation, cleaning, greeting . . . and the list goes on. Our family personally enjoyed serving these servants of God with our team and church members. Our daughter Harmony made the decision to serve God with her life. What a great, Godly week it was!


The Monday after the conference, the Nong Phlap church had a wedding. Thaw Thaw and Noe Noe, a faithful church couple, wanted to dedicate their lives to God and be officially married in church. Roughly 150 people attended. Four families cooked delicious food for everyone. Pong and Star conducted the ceremonies, while Sarah and I sang, ushered, and took a lot of pictures. We are blessed with Spirit-filled families in the church.

Souls Saved

The Wednesday after the conference, Star, one of our teenagers named Noo, and I went soul winning in a nearby aloe vera field. Noo and his parents may be moving to America this year, likely Omaha, Nebraska, through a UN agreement that took place many years ago when they first came to Thailand from Burma. Three other families in our church face a similar situation, where the UN might require them to move to various cities within the USA. Please pray for God’s will to be accomplished in the lives of these dear, faithful church families. Star and Rain, faithful servants and staff of our ministries for close to ten years, are one of these families. Please pray for wisdom and God’s providence in these times of possible transitions; we know God is in control. Okay, back to the soul winning. The Laotian people we witnessed to in the aloe vera field did not get saved, but they listened well. Just about two miles away, we met Naw Cho and her family. Naw Cho wanted her son, nephew, and newly arriving dad (from Burma) to hear the Gospel. They did and were wonderfully saved. While we witnessed to these three, Naw Cho called a neighbor friend of hers, Pawreeaye, to come over with her two boys. All three listened to the Gospel and trusted in Jesus for salvation. Wow! What a morning it was. Noo, the young teenager with us, was so excited. Naw Cho told us she knew of others who needed to hear about Jesus but were out looking for work at that time. We agreed to come back the next evening, Thursday evening, but that night, Wednesday night, Naw Cho came to the Bible study and brought three unsaved friends with her. All three were saved after the service ended. We discovered that these three had only been in Thailand a short time (arriving from Burma). They had not found a job yet, didn’t have very much money, and had very little food. Three other friends of theirs were in the same situation—no food, no money, no jobs. That Thursday morning, we purchased some food supplies for these in need. Thursday afternoon at 5:00, we arrived at Naw Cho’s house in the midst of flashes of rain. Naw Cho was home and ready to take us to her friends. About three miles away sat a little home with seven people living in it. Here, four more souls found salvation. Afterward, all of those in dire straits were given the food supplies to help them while they searched for jobs. They were so happy to learn of Jesus and overwhelmed when the unexpected food came into the house. Serving God is so much fun! A short time later, Pawreeaye led us to her house to tell the rest of her family about Jesus, and three more of her family found salvation. Praise the Lord! Friday, June 7, was my birthday. Bro. Tim Shook and all of our staff men took me to Starbuck’s for a big coffee, fellowship, and prayer. I am blessed to work with such good, Godly people who love the Lord. I thanked them all for their friendship and encouragements. A short time later, Star and I took time to see two men hear the Gospel and be saved: a cooking-gas deliveryman named Dton and a construction foreman named Phoeng. God gave us quiet, uninterrupted visits on a clean, clear day in Hua Hin. Now these men know the Greatest True Story of God’s Love! That is a great birthday gift in itself.

Nong Phlap, 152 – June 9

On this Sunday, we as a church celebrated four years of being a full-time, autonomous church. Many families attending today first started attending our Karen Sunday school class, which began in August of 2013. For the four-year Sunday celebration, Sarah made special cakes for all. God has done an amazing work since that first Sunday morning service of June 7, 2020. Attendance on that day was 40. Today, the Lord has given averages more than triple that amount. Praise God for the faithful families, full of desire to grow in the Lord.

Nong Phlap Church Building Fund

Thankfully and amazingly, the church already owns two acres of beautiful land. Very soon, the land will be leveled and cleaned (trees remain). Our next step is to work on the water hookup and bathrooms, followed by electricity. If God would have you to make a donation for buildings, please send it to FBMI, #6480 “Nong Phlap”, 507 State Street, Hammond, IN 46320 or through the online option at, Fund: Nong Phlap 6480.

Grateful to serve,

Bro. Chad Inman & Family
