In our prayer time today we’re going halfway around the world to the Asian nation of Thailand. We are going to pray for Dr. Doug Derbyshire and his wife, Cheryl. They have served in Thailand since 1992.
Doug is a physician at the Bangkla Baptist Clinic in the city of Bangkla. Along with the clinic ministry, Doug and Cheryl visit areas of the country with no churches. Thai medical staff and volunteers from the U.S. work with them to hold mobile medical clinics that treat many patients.
Along with medical care, Doug and others address spiritual needs by presenting the gospel. Doug says sometimes the people have never heard of God nor worshiped Him. He says being the first to tell them about Jesus is a burden.
Our church supports Doug and Cheryl over in Thailand through our Cooperative Program giving. They are “our” missionaries! Let’s ask God to keep them safe as they travel and to bless their ministry with many patients who are healed of both disease and sin.
