Current events

Thailand has 80,677 villages. Churches in Thailand are located in just 3,419 of these villages. Only 4% of the villages in Thailand have a church. 95% of Thai citizens live in a village without a church. If a village does not have a church those living in that village have almost no possibility of becoming a Christian.  Dwight Martin E Star Foundation

.Our visa renewal trip to Bangkok last month was successful, we have another year missionary visa and work permit.

We had a wonderful Calvary Chapel missions conference in Chiang Mai with 180 in attendance representing missions in 13 countries.  The speakers were great and great fellowship with those we've grown to love over the years as well as making new friends.                                    .

Operation Andrew is starting across Phuket and other southern provinces in preparation for the Will Graham celebration February 17 - 19, please pray.  The Christian Life and Witness Course will be available for all churches in Phuket in Novermber and instructor training, which I attended in September.  Tonight October 7 will be a kick off rally for the international churches an evening of worship and fellowship and the need to evangelize. 

The evil holiday, the vegetariean festival, is October 1-10.  Thankfully it has rained most every day, greatly minimizing the attendance where participants seek to be indwelt by a spirit and then perice themself wiah a skewer or sword.


Teaching the Word in Thailand  

 We are studying through the book of Genesis on God's Word for Today radio program. 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 Nehemiah.  See 

 Praise and Prayer Requests

Praise the Lord we have a radio station to broadcast on with a much wider range in Phuket and Phang Nga.  Everday 7:30 - 8:00 streaming on the internet.  Pray that many will listen to the broadcast and the Holy Spirit will help them to understand.

Pray for the salvation of the people in our village and for the discipleship and maturity of the believers, equipping them for the work of the ministry.

 We are very thankful for those who support us each month.  Our personal and church month-to-month expenses are covered, but things like visas and conferences and furlough trips to the States and major repairs/household purchases are not.  Please prayerfully consider monthly, quarterly, or one-time giving.

May God receive all the glory for what He has done and is doing in Phuket and Phang Nga Thailand and beyond.

Thank you for your prayers and financial support. God bless you, with love, Dana and Cindy Bratton
