Warm greetings from Thailand...
By Alejandro Cardiente
Pastor Brian Wilson, an ordained pastor from Chiang Rai spent his weekend with our Mien members in Pangkhon church. Pastor Brian conducted a weekend spiritual revival while reviewing the baptismal vows with our four baptismal candidates.
The baptismal candidates went through a lot of struggle because Satan was working very hard to stop their baptism plans.
I was expecting 4 baptismal candidates, which later became 3 and as the Bible study became deeper, it became 2. Then when the final day arrived (Sabbath, August 8) to confirm their decisions, it turned out that only 1 was ready to accept Jesus in baptism.
We have been calling the other one since Friday but her phone seemed off.
Satan is working very hard and so I was not surprised. Out of love, we have been trying to do the best we can as the Holy Spirit impressed us to do (but no forcing)...but somehow others refused to listen to the Holy Spirit's voice. So, only one very precious soul accepted Jesus this Sabbath.
We praised the Lord for what He has done. I can't hold my tears (tears of joy) seeing this precious soul being baptized.
Many thanks for your support. Whatever outreach success God has given us here, you are part of it. Outreach here couldn't be easier without you to stand by our side.
God bless your heart.....To God be the glory....Please help us pray that others will also finally decide to accept Jesus.

We thank God for the successful seminar and we thank all the sponsors of AAMI for your continued support through funds and prayers.
