The Fredericks in Oct. 2016

October 2016

Dear praying partners,

I am currently preaching through the book of Jeremiah for our Wednesday evening Bible studies. It is an encouragement to know that the success of our ministry is not measured by numbers but by faithfulness. May the Lord find us all faithful about the task He has called us to do.

Church Events: We have received many special offerings to help with the expenses of the Cambodia missions trip. We are very grateful. The cost for those going will be almost half of what they were initially expecting. Even though the trip is several months in the future, please pray for a fruitful trip.

Vehicle: We praise the Lord for the many special offerings for our vehicle. We are shopping and will see what opens up for us in the near future.

Outreach: The semester at the university is in full swing. We had a special game night at our church for the students. Unfortunately, no one showed up. It can be quite discouraging sometimes. But it isn’t uncommon to plan an event and for whatever reason have many come or none. We will continue to plan monthly events to make personal contacts between our church members and the students. The Facebook ads have been well received and we are continuing to pursue this avenue of sharing the Gospel. After many years of trying to be a witness to the man who cuts our grass, I was finally able to spend some time with him sharing the Gospel message in a very brief, but clear way. He has said he really desires to know more and has said he will come to church. Lord willing, he will. Please pray for his salvation.

Bible Institute: The first course of systematic theology is almost complete. In a few short weeks, we will start part two. The students are energetic and diligent. I praise the Lord for those that desire to know more about God’s word and spend the extra time to come to classes.

Please pray for: Mike’s students and fellow teachers for salvation; a man who comes regularly but has yet to be saved (pray for his salvation); backslidden members to return or find a good church; Hannah, our youngest daughter, for her college school bill and her university studies; Matthew, our oldest son, while he is deployed; bible school students and myself (teaching them clearly); Al Allshouse ,our associate, for ability in learning Thai; wisdom in ministry matters; results of outreach; fundraising for Cambodia missions trip and funds to purchase another vehicle.

May God continue to bless you as you serve Him

For Christ in Thailand,
Mike & Francis Frederick
