MISSIONARY NEWS - THE MCCLAINS - We want to thank you for your faithful support and prayers for our family and ministry here in Thailand! About 75 Thai youths and adults came to our 3rd Annual English Camp in April with 15 campers responding to the Gospel and receiving Christ as their Savior! Many asked questions about the Bible, the Gospel, Jesus, etc., which reminds us that before the harvest, there must be sowing, watering, and then God will give the increase. Later in April at the Thai Independent Baptist Church camp, 4 people made professions of faith, and others gave testimonies of what God has done in their lives. Praise the Lord that we have been able to faithfully teach almost every week in our English classes, Sunday School and Bible Study, and I have also preached several times here in Chiang Mai and in Lampang. I have started using a Creation to Christ Bible Study and am explaining it also in Thai to help the students understand it better and am looking forward to God using this to continue working in the hearts and building the faith of our English students. Please pray for the completion of the paperwork to extend our missionary visa and work permit for another year. We’re not sure how the recent military coup will affect the processing.
