Most of you are sleeping right now. I’m 12 hours later than Eastern time.
I want you to meet our 4 team members from Thailand:
From Left to Right:
Fai – She’s our newest staff person in Thailand. In her second year, having just finished staff training and still working on raising her support.
Kosit – A key volunteer. Assistant pastor but has a degree in sport science and well-connected to the higher sport world.
Jo – Just resigned his pastorate and joining our staff full-time. In the process of raising support.
Pranee – Our Thailand AIA leader for the last dozen years or so. Finally getting a team to help her in the thousand or so things she has going.
This photo was taken in the hotel where the Thailand delegation is staying – all the athletes and coaches. The gigantic lobby is proving to be a great place to just hangout and meet athletes.
Please pray that God will use the contacts they already know to open further doors for ministry. Pray for the many, many discussions I’ll have with Pranee – that we can find the solution to most strategically use the resources she now has to create spiritual movements among the athletes of Thailand.
I’m off now to meet with some Christian archers from Singapore – who just lost. They had a chance to win a medal but it didn’t come about. This is the least fun part of ministry at global events – much more fun to celebrate victories. But God has great lessons in losses.
