Current events

A couple contacted me though our church website, friends of theirs have a daughter who was sick in Southern Thailand with Dengue Fever.  We got her phone number and the name of the hospital.  Kay, not her real name, a 20 year old from the state of Washington was traveling alone and staying on the island of Koh Lanta, a three hour boat ride south of Phuket.  She had just been released from the hospital, but knowing from experience of the many symptoms and side effects, we invited her to come stay with us.  We picked her up at the pier on Friday and took her to Mission Hospital where they determined she had hemorrhagic (bleeding dengue) as I had suspected with her bloody noses. She stayed with us ten days and did remarkably well in answer to prayer. The nosebleeds stopped but she had nausea and vomiting for six days and stayed in bed with little appetite.  Cindy took her to the hospital twice to have blood work done and the second time it was determined she was well enough to travel.  She spent a couple of days in a beach bungalow before flying back to Seattle, Washington much to the relief of her parents.

On the 21st we celebrated my 60th birthday with a trip to our local water park, Splash Jungle, and had a very nice day.  In June the new international terminal will open at the airport, providing a lot more additional space for the many travelers we get here. Cindy is going to change her teaching schedule with Habitat for Humanity to Wednesay and Friday afternoons so she can join me at the airport every Tuesday and Thursday for Tourist Police volunteering.   In February of next year the Billy Grahan Evangelistic Association will be conducting a celebration (crusade) here.  Praise the Lord!  I am serving on a committee to help reach English speakers here and hope to be involved with churches, too.  We had our first meeting of the international committeee and we have a big kick off rally at the Merlin Hotel with all the churches and committees on May 13.  On May 12 I am performing a wedding.    


Teaching the Word in Thailand  

 We have radio programming every day,  The radio station is now streaming live on the internet so we can reach Thai speakers around the world Star FM 98.75 mhz..  We are studying the book of Matthew in God's Word for Today radio program.   I am translating answers to questions at with help from Wanta.  Podcasts of the programs are at and  listed also on iTunes.  Sunday mornings at church we are studying Psalms, and Wednesday nights we are studying the book of Job.  See  Some of you may have noticed that the main website was redirecting to the podcast, that problem has been fixed.

 Praise and Prayer Requests
