Ministry News – 29 September 2007
One night there was a loud noise of bottles being broken on the street thrown by a young gang near our church. Pastor Banjob woke up and heard they were fighting. One girl scolded a boy who had sex abuse with her while she was drunk and slept in her dorm. Pastor Banjob came out, talked with them until dawn and convinced them to think about their lives and future. After that night pastor Banjob shared the problems of this gang with the elders of the church. We have had the burden about them since then.
In the year 2004 the Thai Lanna Church began the football team. We play football at our football field in the church. The boys who lived nearby came to watch and wanted to participate, so we let them join us. Later they felt comfortable going to church on Sunday. After a few months we set up a special Bible class for them. Nine of them accepted Christ as their Savior. One boy brought his mom to know Jesus also. One day his mother told us that her son did not go to school. We talk with them and learned that the boy could not do the homework and did not understanding the lessons in class especially Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. So the pastor asked the youth leader, who is an engineer, to help them by starting a tuition class in the evening. In three days they could catch up with the class.
This year 2007, Pastor Lito Yutuc is now our department head of the SANFAN Ministry. Reaching the Thai children thru teaching them English,Math,Arts & Skills.
