Teerapat and Tiffany Phaisarnpiwat Prayer Letter:  New Home and New Place of MinistryA lot has been happening these past two months as we’ve adjusted to our new home and place of ministry. Doors we thought were opening closed. Everything we thought we were going to do in our new location wasn’t working out. Little did we know that God was preparing for this future transition eight years ago before we were even married. At that time, Tiffany and I were serving with another missionary and had gone with the youth to a Youth Conference. There was another missionary there who had lost his visa in India, where he’d been previously serving, and was temporarily helping the host of the conference. We met each other briefly there but hadn’t been in contact since. Fast forward to now, we were reintroduced by a friend who had come to visit. After meeting with him, Pastor Abel invited us to come for a service and asked me to preach. Over the past month, we have been getting to know Pastor Abel, his family, and the people at his church and helping wherever we can. He has two churches a little over an hour apart from each other that he is pastoring. He had been praying for a Thai pastor to come and partner with him. At the same time, I’ve been praying and looking for someone to partner with in the ministry. Pastor Abel has invited us to serve with him. We are slowly finding our place and hope to be a blessing to the growing ministry here. On Saturday morning, they have a children’s program, and in the evening, there is a youth group. Right now, we are going to be helping a lot with the youth and Saturday activities and eventually help with the morning services in the church near us.

My niece came to spend a week with us. Before our move, our nephew (her brother) lived with us, and she spent a lot of time at our home. They moved at the same time we did to their mom’s house about an hour and a half away from us. We had a wonderful visit with Ing and got a recommendation of a church from Pastor Abel that our niece and nephew could attend near their new home. We drove Ing back home early the following Sunday morning to pick up her brother and take them both to the local church. Praise the Lord, my sister and her boyfriend came along too. This was the boyfriend’s first time ever going to church, and my sister hadn’t been in quite a while. They all attended church the next Sunday on their own. Please pray with us for the salvation of my sister’s boyfriend.

I have a personal praise and prayer request. Praise the Lord, my dental procedures are finally completed, and I received my teeth implants. Right after coming back from getting my implants in Maesot, I got food poisoning. I was really sick for about 2½ weeks. This affected my old ulcer and my immune system, causing me to be sick and weak off and on the entire month of May. Praise the Lord, it seems like I’m on the mend now and regaining my strength.

Prayer Requests

Please pray for us as we continue to transition and become a part of Door of Life Baptist Church and their outreaches. One of the churches is having their one-year anniversary at the end of June, and there will be a special Sunday. Please pray for salvations, visitors, and everyone who will be helping to serve on that day. Also, please keep praying for my health.

My wife and I celebrated our 7th anniversary in April. Thank you for all the emails, messages, and cards. Being remembered means a lot to us.

God bless,

Teerapat & Tiffany Phaisarnpiwat
