Testimony on Thanksgiving Worship and Banquet

Rev. Saeng Sirithienwanichkul, Pastor of Pakred Church, Nonthaburi Province

November 7, 2009

“Praise the Lord for this evening that I was invited by Journey Into Light.  Our church has received many blessings from JIL. 

We are working together with JIL in proclaiming the Gospel.  We have had the opportunity to share the Gospel on the radio programs and our church has been able to contact those who are interested.  We also have been informed about the news of other churches through JIL.  As a result JIL is a great benefit for churches in Thailand and our church has had the opportunity to work with JIL.  

Actually we have known JIL for many years and received the news about this Thanksgiving evening last month.  We are very happy to join in this thanksgiving celebration.  

Many of our church members receive news and encouraging text messages from JIL. They say that while they were feeling anxious or having problems, the text arrived just at the right time and it is God acting, He really knows what they need.  For the past two days my wife has been feeling unhappy and then the text message appeared with the Word of God.  It’s really wonderful that God really knows her heart and we receive so many good things from Him.  

Our church has prison ministry in three prisons: at Khlong Pai, Nakornrajsima Province and Nakornsrithammaraj Provinces.  The prisoners requested Bible lessons, but we do not have any materials available, so we asked JIL to help with this matter.  We were able to talk to JIL staff, who immediately contacted the prisoners.  We praise God that we have the opportunity to work together.  

My wife and I continue to pray for JIL and this is true, every morning at 5 a.m. we wake up to pray.  I am very happy that JIL has organized this Thanksgiving evening and would like to join in the work of JIL.  We hope that we can participate in this ministry together and that it will benefit the churches in the future. We thank the Lord and may God bless you all.”
