Thai Villager Finds Peace in Jesus After Neighbor’s Passing

In June this year, members of the southern ACT churches in Isaan visited The Church in Khamsanya in Nanongthum village. They divided themselves into groups and went to do outreach in the neighboring villages.
In the Nakae village, they came across Mother Sangwan and shared with her about Jesus and the salvation story. She became very interested. The church members in Nanongthum continued to visit her to teach her about Jesus.

A few weeks ago, Mother Bun Mi, Mother Sangwan’s neighbor who had just become a believer passed away.
Mother Sangwan wanted to become a believer too because, she said, “When Mother Bun Mi died, I could see that she had so much peace. I want to have peace like that too.”

(Thai culture will often refer to each other using terms of endearment such as Mother, Aunty, Gran, etc.)
