This month felt good, like we made a lot of progress. When you learn a language, you learn a lot of random words and phrases that you can’t really make much conversation with, and then you finally get to a point where you crest the hill and know enough to begin to have more natural conversations. That feels much better and is the sweet spot of language learning, so we are glad to be there.
Along with more ability in the language comes more opportunity to share the Gospel. We are grateful for the opportunities and friends he has given us here, and this month marked the first month we have been able to share the Gospel completely in Thai.
There are several ongoing conversations with people that The Lord has brought to us. We have already seen evidence of The Lord’s working in their heart and we are asking the Lord to save them, so please pray with us about these opportunities and people he has brought across our path.
In our last prayer letter we mentioned our need of a car, and we praise The Lord that he has provided one! We purchased a little 4-door Toyota truck that has already proven very versatile for getting the whole family around, as well as being utilitarian.
Come visit in 2014
We are looking forward to the trip we are hosting next year June 16-25. If you are interested in coming, the price, including airfare, is going to be $2900. Start planning now and we look forward to the ones that he is going to lead here to help us for those 10 days.
Yours for the Gospel in Thailand,
Philip and Lori Bassham
