Where God' people gather to worship, the presence of God is manifested - perceptible and visible. Where two or three are gathered together in the name of Jesus, He is among them ... in Pattaya, too!
Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in You? Show us your mercy, Lord, and grant us Your salvation.
Pattaya is a city that has most of its economy in sex tourism. But God’s grace and His love for the people remains unchanged. His will is still to save, heal and deliver this city and its people; and that too, is exactly what we want to see. Everything starts with prayer and worship; it influences people, cities and whole nations. Worship and prayer opens heaven over people, places and cities because God’s presence breaks through. It shows itself in the natural and supernatural realm .... and it always makes an impact ...
A house where Jesus is the center is what we are aiming for. And this starts with a life-style that is focussed of Jesus before all other things. That includes prayer, searchings Gods heart for the city. A place of worship so powerful, that chains and addictions will fall off from people like when Paul and Silas praised God in the prison. A home discipleship takes place in the community-life and people are getting equipped and encouraged to take this presence of God to the streets.
Worship and Mission in Pattaya
To do so we started with the REVIVAL SCHOOL on the Move to train our students in Pattaya and to send them out also to share the gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit and to serve the poor and needy.
It seems like the night-life and the sex-tourism have a lock on the city, but that’s exactly where we expect the power of God to move! It’s His love, His victory at the cross of Calvary, which gives hope.
And this is our message to the people in Pattaya, so that they can find a way out of their unworthily circumstances, the results of the sex-industry, poverty and social or family problems into a dignified life. We believe that by what we do, the love of God will reach the hearts of these people and bring a lasting change in their life. We support people who are looking for help to change their lifestyle. We will establish communities with a familial atmosphere that will train them to be integrated into society and become disciples of Jesus.
God has spoken to us and has called us! In order for all these things to become a reality, we have to be in Pattaya for a couple of days every month. With prayer walks as well as prayer and worship at strategic points, we are ploughing the ground in the spiritual realm for transformation.
Step by step
At present, we are still living in hotels. Our next step will be to rent a house or apartment with the REVIVAL SCHOOL on the Move Thailand in order to have a permanent place in Pattaya. Though it may not be the final location to live permanently, it is important to have a place which is according to our vision for Pattaya: To build up a spiritual altar on which will burn a constant fire of prayer and worship that shakes the city with the power of the gospel.
