Baptism in Mae Wang, Thailand

http://Malachi's home school high school basketball coach was a terrific guy named Rob, who married a lovely Godly young woman named Jordan, who was raised in a missionary family, in Thailand. When Rob and Jordan got married they knew that God was calling them into full time missions, maybe to Cambodia, but probably to Thailand. That is where they are. This video came from them tonight and is a wonderful testimony of what God is doing in this little village.( Rob is the tall "white guy") Please scroll down and turn my playlist off while you watch this so you don't miss anything? Be blessed as you watch , be a blessing after you watch!!
I wanted to share Rob and Jordan's latest update as well:
Power of Prayer team,
May the peace and grace of God rest upon all of you this new year. As we reflect upon what God has done throughout 2009 we see his good and perfect will in our lives. We cannot express how grateful for your continued and persistent prayers. We cannot count the shower of blessings that our good Lord has given us by his grace. As we are half way done with our time here in Thailand, we have been through struggles, pain, hurt, and disappointment, but he has always been faithful and has always seen us through. We have seen huge works of God recently and by God’s grace have an opportunity to share these praises. On Christmas day we had 70 people in our home for Christmas dinner. We got a chance to share the true meaning of Christmas and why Jesus birth was sign of God’s love for all humanity. We then started a new group, at a nearby university, in one of our partner’s home. Pray for them as starting a group in Thailand is only possible with God changing the hearts of man. During that same week our team baptized 12 people in the village that we had been faithfully working in for the last 8 months. God is good and His story changes people’s hearts. Nong Nat the boy who cannot walk was one of those that was baptized. Our group that meets in our home is growing with what can only be explained as the Holy Spirit. The group of believers have grown to people who are focused and giving their life to serving God. They are all working full time jobs and yet are working tirelessly to proclaim the good news of gospel. Always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. If there is one thing that we have learned since being over here is there is a battle going on but it is not a war that we normally think of, it is the battle for souls of men. Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand. Ephesians 6: 10-13.
We love you and miss you dearly. Send us your prayer requests that we may lift you up during our times of prayer.
In Christ,
Rob & Jordan
