Moriel Thailand Missions Newsletter November 2012
Dear believers in grace,
Yesterday was the first day of the term for me at the college., This term I’m just teaching 4 hours a week instead of 6 like last term., And, I’ve decided to drop the junior high classes., Last term at the college, out of 44 students, I gave 24 of them F’s., Compared to my university classes of old, the most I failed in one term was 9 students from about the same # of students., I simplified my college class as much as I could (e.g. at the university I taught and tested the students on about 600 new words, whereas at the college only about 100 new words)., So, I think the F’s were justified., This term I have most of the same students.
One of these students, who came with us for the camp September 29/30 has decided to become a Christian. ‚ I just saw today on her Facebook page that she’s changed her religion status. ‚ And, yesterday in class she wrote something about Jesus on her student name card. ‚ She plans to come with us to church tomorrow. ‚ This is encouraging. ‚ I wish there were more, but broad is the way to destruction. ‚ We still have the after school Bible study for these students also.
Khae’s Dad had a rough week at home. ‚ Last Sunday morning Khae’s Mom woke up at 4 am ‚ and came to the Dad’s room to ask him ‚ if he’s going to church. ‚ He said yes, at which she scolded him severely. ‚ He still went to church that day. ‚ A couple of days later, she told him that he’s not related to her. ‚ They’re only related by marriage, so that’s in effect saying that he’s not her husband.
We plan to go visit the sunken ship community soon. ‚ Please pray for us and that community. ‚ Also, please let us know if we can pray for any of you about something.
