A Place of Grace

We as a family have been praying for a long time now for a building so that we could have a place for a office and prayer ministry, as well has outreach projects into the slum community
near where we live.

God has answered our prayers in a mighty way . We have raised 85 thousand Bht; we still need 60 thousand Bht (about £1200) to move in - this is rent for 6 mths.

Please read our news item 'A Place of Grace'

Please pray for books

We have seen some awesome responses to the Nobody's Child books and comics translated into Thai and also the comic cops and robbers in Thai but we now need prayer for raising some money to buy more copies of the Thai Nobody's Child and also Somebody's Child and Nobody's Child in English for the men. In one prison in Bangkok I do a Bible study for men who are English speaking from Africa.

Wow what an interesting three weeks it has been. Today Friday I got my results of the two biopsies I had on my colon; clear thank you God but had a parasite inside that now my body has dealt with this and now much better but have to be careful what I eat.

Me and gillian joel natty and leah are so grateful for your prayers and support,as you can imagine we hugged each other and even the two doctors were over the moon as they were concerned.

January 2011

We are doing OK and praying at the moment for a building where we can open a coffee shop and prayer room for the people living and working on the streets as well as when they come out of prison.

I have just given the last copy I had of Nobodyschild in Thai. People have really related to the story of feeling nobody cares. Here in Thailand there is not a lot of help for homeless or people coming out of prison or if they are ill.

Happy Christmas!

Merry Christmas = suksan wan kris-mas

Happy New Year = khor hai mee kwam-suk wan pii mai

My new book Street Smart has just been published by Lion Hudson and Monarch .

For prayer:

Please would you pray for the urgent for political situation this weekend
Please pray for wisdom and discernment for our health and cockroaches and mossy bites.
Also would you pray for our finances, setting up costs have been hard on our budget
God is good and is our rock on which we stand here in Thailand and we know God is doing amazing things already.
