Fredericks’ March 2018 Prayer Letter

March 2018

We arrived back in Thailand from our brief trip to visit family and hit the ground running. Since returning it has been pretty hectic, but that is the way we like it. We were thankful to be able to spend time with our children and grandchildren, although it is certainly not long enough. Below we will give a synopsis of our ministry this year

Soul Winning: After returning I did a short seminar about soul winning for the members of our church. The goal was to try to get folks more active in sharing their faith. In February we took eleven members door to door in the area to actively share the Gospel. They all did a great job. A few good contacts were made as well.

Bible Institute: I am teaching two courses this term; Hebrew Poetry and Greek II. Both classes are progressing well with good attendance. We are trying to record the sessions but keep running into technical issues. As I mentioned in previous letters, we are making due with the system we have in place, but it is proving inadequate. Initially, I wanted to buy a couple of Mac computers for our video and audio editing, but have since downgraded my wish list to one or two PCs. We are also in need of sound equipment so we can get a decent audio track. In total, we are still short about $2000 for computer equipment and about $500 short for audio and video equipment. If you can help, please designate your special offering as Frederick Computer when you send your gift to our Mission Board, BWMOM. You can also give (non-tax deductible) through our website www.thaimissions.org.

Ministry: I continue to teach a big load at our local universities. This is a great open door to reach young people who are away from home and the heavy Buddhist influence of relatives.

Misc.: Our support is less than desirable at this point, so I am planning a 4-6 month furlough in 2019 to try to raise some more funds. We haven’t actively tried to raise support since we came to the field in 2003. Needless to say, our spending power is not so powerful anymore. We appreciate the special Christmas offerings we received, our faithful supporters (many who have supported us since 2001), and of course, the many who pray regularly for us and Thailand. We are most grateful for all who share in this ministry.  

Please pray for: Mike’s students and fellow teachers for salvation. Pray for salvation for a man who still comes regularly (more than two years). Pray for Hannah (our youngest daughter) for her college school bill and her university studies. Pray for wisdom in ministry matters and the results of outreach. Pray for the Britten family as they make their final preparation to go to England as our church’s first missionary family, especially for their visa application. Pray for a young lady in our church who is struggling spiritually. (Names are not included for privacy reasons. I hope you understand.)

We are truly humbled to be a part of your mission’s program and look forward to many more years of service together. May the Lord bless you as you faithfully serve Him.

For Christ in Thailand,
Mike & Francis Frederick
