At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.”
Pattaya - we will go
VisionThe aim of this branch is transformation of the world’s largest red light district in Pattaya/Thailand. Our ministry combines three elements: The city-mission called „Worship & Mission“, the international missions-training of the Revival School on the Move and we are dreaming of a mercy-ministry for women working in the red-light. Like it is mentioned in Hebrews 12:26 we are longing for the city and its people alike to be shaken by the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
In the recently past months we adjusted and developed our strategy to make it happen. Right know we have a team for Pattaya of five staff, who are preparing themselves for living and ministering in the city. Schöttlers gained experience in Thailand in our ministry for some years already. Our current steps are aiming for our team to become well prepared for the the requirements of serving in Thailand. This includes developing ourselves in administrations, intercultural competences, building a framework for sending students and staff to other nations and it includes team building as well.
A new Beginning
While we had our missions conference in Pattaya we were able to make some further preparations for the start the ministry in Thailand. To do so we went as a team to Pattaya's city hall first to pray for the government and to bless the district. In town we could build relationships to ministries and language schools and received councel of an attorney regarding the application for a HELP International foundation. As a team we are meeting regularly for prayer so that the beginning of this new chapter can be modeled and prepared in prayer.
In near future
In near future we will need a place that can host our team and the vision alike. We have our eyes on a building, that is not only capable to do so, but that’s available, too.
The main-house was always intended to host a staff-team, while the extension is near perfect to accommodate the students of RSotM or outreach-teams! The house shall become the HQ for our outreaches to Pattaya. But it is also a place of equipping and training as it will be the launching-pad for our students to go into other nations.
We are thankful and glad alike to see that many people donated already. Every single donation is supporting and enabling our team to make Jesus know in Pattaya.
