Got a building!
Praise the Lord, we finally got a place to meet! It was slow, as with most things in Thailand, but we are very happy with the place the Lord led us to. It is a great location on a main road with plenty of space for everything we are wanting to do and more.
Since signing the contract we have been getting things ready for our first event on March 14th, tomorrow. Meaning — working to get chairs, A/C’s, tables, signs, banners, flyers, utilities all ready so that we can have a smooth start. As well as handing out lots of those flyers all around the area.
In order to get the word out, and meet new people in the community, we are handing out 10k flyers per week for 6 weeks in the area immediately around the church, and having 6 weeks of free English classes. Each flyer has an invitation to the first official service as well. We have already gotten out about 9k so far and start teaching on Monday! I have no idea what to expect at all, for the english classes or the church, but we are trusting the Lord and asking Him to work!
First Service on May 1!
The first service of Grace Baptist Church of Din Daeng is scheduled for May 1st. Please be praying with us as we work toward that day!
Be praying for Lori in these last days of pregnancy as there is a lot going on. I praise the Lord for such a good woman at my side. She has been helping get a lot of things designed and ready. Being 8 months pregnant with 2 little ones at home, I still had to talk her out of going out every day to hand out literature with us.

Yours for the Gospel in Thailand,
Philip and Lori Bassham
