- #Repost @omf_int (@get_repost) ・・・ What do you think of when you hear the word ‘catechism’? Some evangelical churches today still use catechisms to teach the faith, but other believers view catechisms as just ‘a Catholic thing’, or as outdated relics from the Protestant Reformation. When you mention the word ‘catechism’, words like ‘fresh’ and ‘innovative’ don’t often spring to mind. But sometimes the best way forward is by looking backwards. For the past couple of years, I have been working together with Dr. Natee Tanchanpongs (pastor, Grace City Bangkok Church) and Mr. Chaiyasit Suebthayat (elder, New City Fellowship Church in eastern Bangkok) to write a new catechism in the Thai language. The three of us have written the new Thai Christian Catechism from the ground up, borrowing from the Westminster Shorter Catechism at times, but organising the catechism differently and covering slightly different ground in terms of what is included and how it is expressed. Although catechisms have waned in popularity, it is our conviction that the question-and-answer format of the catechism is fundamentally sound and can still be used effectively today, even in non-Western contexts. We aimed to write a catechism that includes turns of phrase, vocabulary, and points of reference that Thai readers would understand. The catechism is a constructive presentation of the Christian faith, but written in such a way that common misunderstandings and objections arising from Thai Buddhism, animism, and popular false aberrant teaching are answered. Eg: One of the major themes of Buddhism is suffering and how to escape from it. The true source of suffering and the only way of real escape are addressed. Q: What are the results of sin? A: Sin is the source of suffering that is experienced by individuals, in society, and in the environment. Q: What plan does God have to fix the sin problems of this world? A: God the Father sent Jesus Christ, his only Son, into this world to help humanity to escape from sin, suffering, and death because one cannot depend on oneself. #thetaskunfinished #PrayforThailand

- Healed cat, healed heart. Four years ago, Manisin met Phil, a motorcycle mechanic-turned-OMF missionary from the U.S. He began studying the Bible with Phil and he saw God answer prayers in powerful ways. Manisin seemed on the verge of giving his life to Christ. But when Phil returned to the U.S. for home assignment, Manisin returned to his old way of life. After Phil’s return, however, the two began meeting regularly again. Manisin began praying again and saw answers to those prayers. At the start of this year, Manisin estimated that his faith in Christ was at “about 90 percent,” but wanted it to be 100 percent before trusting Jesus. In April, Manisin returned home for Songkran, the Thai New Year celebration. While there, his beloved cat became sick. The vet told him the cat did not have much longer to live. Manisin was devastated. He loved that cat. He made the cat as comfortable as possible, but watching it suffer was more than he could bear. He felt as though a dear friend was about to die right before his eyes. And so he prayed. Manisin had never prayed like this before, but he told God that if he would help the cat not to suffer too much, that he (Manisin) would commit his whole life to Christ. As soon as Manisin finished praying, the cat’s symptoms began getting better. Within 24 hours, the cat was healed! Manisin was astounded. He could no longer deny Christ. He had no more excuses. God had answered another prayer in a powerful, undeniable way. Since then, Manisin has been baptized and begun to grow in his faith. He once was a completely serious man who never smiled. Now, he smiles all the time. But there are challenges still. He is trying to pass a government test to be a teacher and has to spend long hours studying in order to prepare for the test. He also fears sharing his new faith in Christ with his family, who will probably not approve of his decision. Being a Christian in Thailand can be a difficult thing when less than two percent of the population professes faith in Jesus. But God has worked mightily in Manisin’s life already. He is faithful to complete the good work he started (Phil. 1:6). #thetaskunfinished #PrayforThailand #pray #prayer

- May the truth of God become clear. A Thai proverb says, “The truth never dies, but the one who speaks the truth must die.” May the Thai come to see how this was fulfilled in the death and resurrection of Jesus, who is the Truth. #PrayforThailand #TheTaskUnfinished #pray #prayer #prayers #praying #willyoupray #prayfortheworld #prayerworks #powerofprayer #gospel #jesus #god #jesuschrist #outreach #commission #greatcommission #Unreached #unreachedpeoples #unreachedpeople #missionary #missions #mission

- I have served in Thailand as a missionary for about ten years, of which the last four have been spent in Bangkok, teaching church history and missions at a seminary, assisting a Thai Christian book publisher, and helping lead a new church plant. Before that I was involved in church planting and evangelism in Central Thailand. Now I spend more time teaching (or preparing to teach) at the seminary than I do in direct church planting and evangelism. Some people may conclude that I am no longer doing “real” missionary work. In a country that is less than one percent Christian, I can see how people might think that. But as people become Christians, grow in faith, and lead their churches in evangelism and church planting, how do we help those Christians and churches to maintain long-term healthy, sustainable growth? One part of the solution is theological education, both formal and informal, at various levels. For most Christians, their theological education is informal and church-based, as it should be. In a church that is led well by leaders who have a mature knowledge of God and his Word, that can be a life-giving experience that leads to growing, healthy churches. But if those leaders are lacking, the church can be like a ship adrift in a storm. Believers are tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine or strong personality that comes to bear upon the church community. As a supplement to informal church-based theological education, formal theological education helps local leaders go beyond the training available to them locally. Formal theological education equips church leaders who will, in turn, ground local believers and local churches in the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. Church planting is essential but we need to use all means possible to equip those churches to endure and grow in a healthy direction. Missionaries involved in formal theological education can play an important role in helping the churches that other missionaries plant to stay planted, and to grow into strong, life-giving trees that will stand the test of time, bear healthy fruit, and spread their good seed elsewhere.

- Before making a one day visa run to Bangkok, I prayed that I would have an opportunity to share Bible stories with the Thai people I encountered that day. The first was a retired civil engineer who was going on vacation. I told him the story of the Tower of Babel with an emphasis on the shoddy construction materials they used and the scattering of the nations. The next was on the way to the Labour Department with a taxi driver who had never heard about the resurrection of Christ and so I told him both the crucifixion and resurrection account. The return trip gave me an opportunity to share with my 64 year old chauffeur. As often happens when they hear me speak Thai they say, “Oh, so you must have a Thai wife”. I revealed to him that I am a widower and have lived in Thailand for 30 years, and he inexplicably replied, “I had a wife, with also 3 minor wives in the past … but now I’m down to just one.” I ended up telling him the story of David and Bathsheba with all the repercussions that flowed into David’s life afterwards. In each meeting with these men, I gave them a gospel tract, encouraged them to pursue more stories in the Bible and urged those with Christian friends to ask them about their faith. My basic approach is to seek to start a winsome conversation and then insert a Bible story that fits their felt need or situation. My goal is not to force the entire gospel message into the conversation, but to at least present the Word of God accurately (which will not come back void…my own words do not have that same guarantee). Then I pray that the gospel tract I leave with them will be read and they will follow up on my admonition to talk with a Christian they might know, search for information on the internet or attend a church. If I sense genuine interest then I may try to arrange another meeting with those that live near me. There are many unreached people in Thailand. Telling Bible stories is one way for Thai Buddhists to learn who Jesus is and turn to him in repentance and faith. Many who hear the gospel in story and song then go on to tell others. #thetaskunfinished #PrayforThailand #pray #prayer

I revealed to him that I am a widower and have lived in Thailand for 30 years, and he inexplicably replied, “I had a wife, with also 3 minor wives in the past … but now I’m down to just one.” I ended up telling him the story of David and Bathsheba with all the repercussions that flowed into David’s life afterwards. In each meeting with these men, I gave them a gospel tract, encouraged them to pursue more stories in the Bible and urged those with Christian friends to ask them about their faith. My basic approach is to seek to start a winsome conversation and then insert a Bible story that fits their felt need or situation. My goal is not to force the entire gospel message into the conversation, but to at least present the Word of God accurately (which will not come back void…my own words do not have that same guarantee). Then I pray that the gospel tract I leave with them will be read and they will follow up on my admonition to talk with a Christian they might know, search for information on the internet or attend a church. If I sense genuine interest then I may try to arrange another meeting with those that live near me. There are many unreached people in Thailand. Telling Bible stories is one way for Thai Buddhists to learn who Jesus is and turn to him in repentance and faith. Many who hear the gospel in story and song then go on to tell others. #thetaskunfinished #PrayforThailand #pray #prayer

- In Thailand it's more common to learn by hearing than reading. Bible story-telling is one method cross-cultural workers use to share the gospel in an accessible way that's now bearing much fruit: On my first day in a small village in Mukdahan province of Northeast Thailand, I was sitting in my host’s house and noticed an eight year old girl who seemed to be leaning over a fence. When I observed her for a couple of more moments I realized she had fallen into a barb wire fence! I rushed out and picked her up, but her clothes were caught on the barb wire. The whole time she didn’t utter a word, which I thought odd. Then I noticed that she had a large cut on her knee.. Yet still no sound from her mouth. Finally her mother walked up slowly and explained that her daughter, Mint, had epilepsy. I was struck with how causual the mother was about helping her daughter. I also noticed that the girl was filthy and unkempt. A day later she was still wearing the same clothes and the cut on her knee had gone untreated. Since our team was doing story training in the village, I decided to prepare the story of the man whose son had seizures from Mark 9. I chose this story because just as the demon was trying to destroy the boy by throwing him into water and fire, it seemed that something was trying to destroy Mint by throwing her into barb wire. The next day I visited Mint’s house and noticed that her Grandma was having to watch a number of children as well as a young teenager who was holding a small baby. I told the Mark 9 story to them all and made a few comments before praying for them and then left. Pray for the Bible story training that is taking place in various parts of Thailand, that we would learn how to communicate the word of God in a way that truly fits the learning style of Thai people. Pray also that the scriptures in story form would touch the hearts of Thai people and bring them to repentance and faith (Hebrews 4:12). #thetaskunfinished #PrayforThailand #bible #biblestory #biblestories #scripture #biblescripture #pray #prayer #prayers #jesus #jesuschrist #gospel #god

- It has been 12 days since I left these sweet girls at the Abundant Life Children's Home, Main Campus Dorm. As my internal clock wakes me at 3am I am compelled to pray for my new friends in Chiangmai, Tatong Village, MaeChaem, MaeLaNoi, Huey Peung Village, and the remote villages we visited in the hills of Northern Thailand. The staff at LWMI are so amazing, and their hearts to serve their community will stay with me always. I am so grateful and my heart is full. #eyeofthethaiger #wolglobal #prayforthailand #jetlaglife

- This is the sign for “House of Two gods” village near Changmai in Thailand. At first I wondered if there had been some kind of mythical battle in the past between two rival gods … a kind of Buddhist version of the “Battle of the Titans”. But it turns out there is a temple in this village that has two Buddhist images made out of different metals (usually there is just one main Buddhist image in a temple). As I reflected more, it reminded me of the tendency of the Thai to absorb and adopt whatever god they think can be of help. That is the reason why many Thai wonder if you can simply add Jesus to their pantheon of dieties. The exclusive nature of our faith (John 14:6) often ends up being a stumbling block to a Thai world view. To counter this, I often use a series of Thai proverbs to help them see why it is necessary to make a firm decision about who you follow as your master in life: 1) Step each foot into two canoes (chances are you’ll split right down the middle); 2)Love the older sister, but forfeit the younger sister (you may fall in love with the older one, but forfeit the cuter younger one); 3)Catch a fish with two hands (trying to do two things simultaneously). In each case, the lesson is that one must make a clear choice in life, you cannot vacillate. Lot was sternly warned by two angels to flee Sodom, but in Genesis 19:16 it says he “hesitated”. Fortunately the angels pulled his whole family out of the city and even with that, Lot’s wife hesitated again and turned to a pillar of salt. Pray that our message to the Thai will be clear enough that they can easily see the uniqueness of the gospel and be able to make the correct and eternal choice of Jesus. #PrayforThailand #TheTaskUnfinished #pray #prayer #prayers #praying #willyoupray #prayfortheworld #prayerworks #powerofprayer #gospel #jesus #god #jesuschrist #outreach #commission #greatcommission #Unreached #unreachedpeoples #unreachedpeople #missionary #missions #mission

- ‘Monday’ lives in a remote village in Isaan, Northeast Thailand. Two years ago she heard the gospel for the first time through a Christian radio program. The church was over 60 kilometres away, but she started attending. Slowly the Gospel got hold of her. She had worked as a witch doctor for many years but now burnt everything to do with her witchcraft. She started telling the man she lived with, who had another wife as well, about Jesus. He came to know the Lord and went to church with her. Monday even shared the Gospel with his first wife, and she believed too. This presented a problem, as they could hardly go to church with the three of them. While the man and his first wife went to church together, Monday started to come to our services in Yangsisurat. She knew very well that the relationship with this man was not right in the eyes of God. Many times she decided to leave him, but she didn't go through with it. When the first baptism service was held, Monday wanted to be baptized as well. But the church would not allow her to receive baptism as long as she continued to live in sin. Monday turned her back on God and picked up her old life as witchdoctor. That was very disappointing for the church. We could only pray for her and we did. For months we couldn’t get in contact with her, but a couple of weeks later she called the elder of the church and said: “God helped me remove all sin out of my life. I want to follow Jesus now and be baptized.” This was her testimony: “For so long I tried to change my life in my own strength, but I couldn’t do it. It was impossible. When I turned my back on the Lord I missed Him so much. I wanted to get right with Him. So in the end I prayed that God would help me to make the painful decisions. And He did. The fact that I stand here today and can be baptized is because of His grace. God did something I couldn’t do. He saved me from sin and death.” Please pray for Monday as she follows Jesus now. Pray that her life will bear fruit and that she will be a shining light and testimony for others. #thetaskunfinished #PrayforThailand #mission #missions #outreach #gospel #Jesus #pray #prayers #god #prayer
