From Missions Coordinator Lana Davidson:
I would also like to express our gratitude to Michel-lyn Mattiussi, Associate Missionary, for her eight years of service in Thailand. Michel-lyn returned just before Christmas as she received the hard news that her Visa was not renewed. Using her gift of the Thai language, Michel-lyn has been serving in Bangkok working with University students. Every week day, Michel-lyn provided English clinics giving her the opportunity to dialogue with students with the ultimate goal of friendship evangelism. I had the privilege of being in Thailand in October with her and was blessed to see some of the students who have been impacted by her ministry.
We are very grateful to Michel-lyn for her love and dedication to her students and we pray that God continues to grow the seeds that she planted during her years in Thailand. May we celebrate together in heaven alongside of many who were impacted by her ministry. I also want to thank Pastor Louie Foster and the Durham Foursquare Church, her sending church, who have been serving as her Missions covering. Please keep Michel-lyn in your prayers as she re-enters life in Canada and for the new doors that God will open for her here at home.
