love the Lord, thy God,
thy heart, and with all thy soul,
all thy mind.
Day, a day in which we especially thank the Lord for those special
people whom He has brought into our lives, whose love and kindness
brings to us much joy and happiness. It is also a special time to
think about the love that we are to have for our Heavenly
Father--with all of our heart, soul and mind. We love Him,
because He first loved us. (1 John 4:19)
Thank you for your
support of our ministry with NTM. Your thoughtfulness is greatly

prayers as well. We continually thank the Lord for you!
We are thankful to
report that I (Linda) am “on the mend.” Thank you for praying for
me. The final test that I had (one of many) still wasnt completely
conclusive, but the specialist did diagnose me as having gastritis
and esophagitis. I am taking several medications, and it is taking
some time, but we thank the Lord it was not more serious, nor
We are enclosing an
exciting update from the country of Thailand. Please pray for the
Prai tribal people, that many of them would come to know the Savior

come to the Prai village of Gem Forest.
Missionaries are glad because lights will be helpful for the evening
teaching sessions. But electricity also brings the novelty of CD players
and TV's to the remote village.

the village run by batteries, which had been drawing quite a crowd,"
wrote missionaries Dave and Fran Jordan.
Several Prai, however, decided that the Bible teaching is more important
than keeping up with the nightly soap operas. In fact, the group has
grown to about 35.
So Prai believers Ba-dee and E-shy, a husband and wife team, have begun
teaching in Genesis 1 again for the newcomers, which provides a good
They spend three nights a week in Gem Forest, teaching Bible lessons to
a beginners and an advanced class, and at times the couple does one on
one teaching in the mornings as well.
Literacy classes also continue but with difficulty as attendance are
inconsistent and people are at different levels of understanding.
Sometimes other Prai believers assist Ba-dee and E-shy but most of the
ministry falls on their shoulders.
Often Ba-dee and E-shy express their desire to be able to spend more
time at Gem Forest. With responsibilities at home and three children in
school, this is difficult. They are looking forward to March when school
vacation begins and they can bring their children with them to stay
longer in Gem Forest.
Pray for Dee and Shy, as they work to spread the light of the Gospel
among their own people.
