The Christmas season is one of the slowest times for deputation, but we have stayed pretty busy. This month, due to some special circumstances, we have driven almost 7,000 miles and have had some very good meetings.
Since our last prayer letter in November, we have seen the Lord add 7 new supporters and brought our support up to 86%. Pray for these last 3 months of deputation that the remaining portion of our support to come in! They will be extremely busy as we make final preparations, pack, and get ready to leave!
Last Christmas with Family before Thailand
We took some time this Christmas to spend a little extra time with family. We are both from TX and don’t get through there very often, and this Christmas was our last time to get to see them before we leave for Thailand.
2012 Summit Starting Monday
The Summit is an event put on by our mission board and church and this year is shaping up to be one of the best. There will be 25 missionaries and over 300 others to gather and consider missions.
I will be speaking on the Lord’s provision for stepping into Chaos (Thailand) with Confidence, as well as presenting the need for laborers, especially in Thailand. Pray the Lord will use us and send forth laborers into his harvest.
You can watch select sessions at www.visionbaptistmissions.com.
Setup Fund Progress
I want to thank those who have sent in money for our setup fund. We are extremely thankful. There is a way to give online directly into the fund at Vision Baptist Missions if you would like to help!
Thank you so much for the prayers and support on our way to Thailand.
Yours for the Gospel in Thailand,
Philip and Lori Bassham
