The King of Thailand died October 13 at the age of 89, he was king for 70 years.  His death will be mourned for one year with everyone wearing black.  The first serveral days all TV and radio was taken over by the government for mourning.  We were off the radio for two weeks, now most regualr programming has resumed.  These are uncertain days for Thailand; please the Nation in prayer.

The Effective Christian Life Explores biblical principles for living a life that pleases God, the preeminence of the Bible, and reliance on Godís power for effective service. The Victorious Christian Life Examines the reality of our daily walk with God and presents Godís provisions for it. The result is an abundant life walking with Him, victorious over temptation and adversity. The Christianís Witness Shows how our lives, yielded to God, can be a powerful witness to others. Practical tips for an effective witness are presented. Follow-Up and Care of New Christians Presents the concept of friendship evangelism and shares practical ways we can follow up with those we lead to Christ. How to Lead Small-Group Bible Studies Teaches the principles of leading new believers in discovering the basics of Godís Word.
