Hi to everyone, this has been a frustrating month (toward the end) and we appreciate your prayers.
Starting out I reopened my class, and had a bunch of kids come back, this went well. However fang had a problem with her fb page, where customers typically stay involved regularly. Turns out that in 2019 fb asked her to confirm her id via email, but she doesn't use that email, and now she has been completely locked out of advertising. So we had to make a new page, and have everyone go like the new page. We had 1000+ followers on the old page so it will take a while to get back up to that number, but fortunately many of our customers gave us a nice review when we asked them to. Hopefully fang will be selling better soon.
Last month I finished a tract on islam that took me a long time, this month i finished a tract on buddhism, and i like it a lot. I hope i dont get arrested or anything. I did keep it respectful, but direct and informative, so hopefully it will be received well by buddhist customers who are eating at fangs shop and curious what the bible has to say about buddhist doctrine. For sure it will destroy the typical misconception "all religions teach people to be good" that your average buddhist likes to say. The tract has a clear gospel message spelled out by the disagreements with buddhist doctrine. Its actually strange but it does seem that i didn't have to add anything else to share the gospel, simply pointing out how the scriptures agree and disagree with each of the 4 noble truths, seems to have painted a clear picture of the gospel. Im planning on taking the next couple months to finish the bondage of the will, and i will do it in a similar format, but will create a subseries of tracts called "historical works" that will be sermons, and chapters from old books by dead guys that have been helpful in evangelism and sermon prep.
Calvin can say mama and papa, and sometimes mum or dada. He loves to sing now and has started singing along with me in the morning, and even when he is sitting and playing by himself. He is cute stuff for sure. Fang and I are doing well for the most part.
I don't think i have an intolerance to rice, however going without thai food for a while seems to have helped. It doesn't have to do with spice, so my intolerance is not to rice or peppers, it must be something else that is common in thai food but not western. You would think this would be easy, but its proving to be more difficult that we thought. Keep me in prayer.
Thanks again for all your support, and for keeping us in prayer. Hopefully things will be opening back up soon and things will go back to normal.
My name is Kaison, my wife is Kritti, our children are Calvin and Abigail, we are a missionary family living in Nakhon si thammarat Thailand for the longhaul. I want to start blogging regularly but pretty sure the posts will be pretty random about things i think are not being covered at all, or family related updates. So follow along and leave a comment, i love comments, thankyou.
