The Fredericks’ March 2017

March 2017

Dear praying partners,

Greetings in the name of our wonderful Lord and Savior. Let me begin by thanking each and every one of you for your faithful prayers and support. It amazes me when I reflect on the wonderful team the Lord has assembled to plant churches in Thailand.

Missions Trip: Our churches missions trip to Cambodia was a great success. We visited several churches and missionaries while in Cambodia. It is a tough field with many similarities to Thailand but with their own challenges. The trip has had a positive impact on our church members. We are thankful for those that gave to help offset the costs of the trip. After returning from the trip, one young man expressed interest in starting back to Bible Institute to better prepare to serve the Lord in the future. He seemed really burdened about the Cambodian people. Who knows, maybe our church will have the privilege of sending out another missionary!

Ministry: Mike continues to work at the university to make contacts with students and staff. Recently a student has started attending faithfully and has since joined the church. She brings a lost friend almost every week. Lord willing, she will be saved soon. The university ministry is a great outreach opportunity. Like most ministries in Thailand, it is slow, but the Word is being sown and we will trust the Lord to give the increase in His time. We were just notified that our co-workers are leaving the field in the next week. This will be a huge blow for us as Mike will have to assume many more responsibilities. It is also a setback from a fellowship aspect. It is encouraging to have fellow laborers who can lift us up in times of discouragement. It is an unfortunate reality that so many Independent Baptist missionaries labor alone.

Bible Institute: Lord willing we will be starting classes again in April. As of now, it is possible that we may have three students attending. Please pray for the potential students and their future ministry.

Please pray for Mike’s students and fellow teachers for salvation. There is a man who still comes regularly but has yet to be saved. Please pray for his salvation as well. Please pray for: Backslidden members to return or find a good church; Hannah (our youngest daughter) for her college school bill and her university studies; a Bible school student to repent and return to school; wisdom in ministry matters; results of outreach.

Words cannot express our thanks for your faithfulness to support our ministry both spiritually and materially for the past fourteen plus years.

May God continue to bless you as you serve Him.

For Christ in Thailand,
Mike & Francis Frederick
