In the last month, we have added 4 new supporters. Continue to pray for these last 2 months of deputation that the remaining 12% of our support would come in.
We had a great start to the year, beginning with the Summit, but then heading up north to OH, MA, VT and then down to TN, FL and GA. The year has started with some really good meetings and we are thankful for every opportunity to present the ministry.
Less than 2 months now and we will be arriving in Thailand. It seems strange that we will be leaving everything familiar to us in such a short time, but I know the Lord has the way prepared ahead of us and will guide us as we seek to serve Him.
Our 1st House in Thailand
We were able to find a place for our first month that we will be able to move into as soon as we arrive while we look for a more permanent place.
Pray for our Visas. We are going on a visa that we will hopefully be able to convert to a religious work visa very soon. Until this happens, we will have to leave the country (just cross any border and come right back) every 90 days. Please pray that this will happen quickly.
The Summit (missions retreat that we were a part of) was incredible and I was glad to have a small part. We saw many called to the mission field and were very encouraged as we saw the Lord calling and preparing laborers for the fields. Thank you for praying.
Setup Fund Progress
Thank you to everyone that has given! We have had some very generous gifts toward our setup fund in the last few months, and we cannot thank you enough for helping us with the move. There is still 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
