Last month we had an incredible team from Connections Community in Meridian, ID (USA) bless ACC and serve along side us. Many incredible things happened. Below is a highlight video set to Dusty Taylor’s original song “Amazing”. You will be blessed to see it. Dusty is also a professional videographer and he did some great video’s of most of the days we were here. To see the individual video’s check out the ConnectionVids YouTube Channel.

ACC – Ao Nang Community Church performed our first Baptism in the Andaman Sea in Amazing South Thailand on Nopparathara Beach on Feb. 8th, 2012. Our dear brother Andre Johansen accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior on Jan. 1st, 2012 and was excited to get baptized. He shares his testimony of what his life like was before accepting Jesus, and how he has changed thus far.
For anyone interested in getting up really early, this Monday (Feb. 6) at 6:30AM is the NFL Super Bowl, featuring the New England Patriots and the New York Giants. Yes, that is 6:30AM, that’s why I said it’s a Super Bowl “Party”. The drink of choice will probably be Coffee Open to anyone interested in coming. We will show it using the projector at Jeremy and Lisa’s home. Please contact Jeremy for directions, or if you think you might stop by.
If you have attended an ACC service you know that we don’t pass around a tithing or offering basket. There are a few reason’s we do this:
1 – People who haven’t grown up in church (and even some who have) believe that churches are all about taking your money. This definitely is not the case when the church is functioning properly, however when we have people join our community for celebration who believe this and then we pass around an offering basket, it reinforces that myth.
2 – Even people who do give often feel guilty when an offering basket comes around and they aren’t giving at that exact moment.
This is the verse from the New Testament that we follow in regards to our giving model
2 Corinthians 8:11-12
“…Let the eagerness you showed in the beginning be matched now by your giving. Give in proportion to what you have. Whatever you give is acceptable if you give it eagerly.”
Our friends at Eagle’s Rest Foundation recently posted something similar on FaceBook that I wanted to share:
“So Moses summoned Bezalel and Oholiab and all the others who were specially gifted by the LORD and were eager to get to work. Moses gave them the materials donated by the people of Israel as sacred offerings for the completion of the sanctuary. But the people continued to bring additional gifts each morning. Finally the craftsmen who were working on the sanctuary left their work. They went to Moses and reported, ‘The people have given more than enough materials to complete the job the LORD has commanded us to do!’ … Their contributions were more than enough to complete the whole project.” Exodus 36:2–5, 7The people brought their gifts willingly, enthusiastically, and the gifts were more than enough. God furnished his people with enough resources to get his work done and have plenty left over for their own needs. Do you give with this in mind, that what you bring will be more than enough and that there will be plenty left over for you?”
Walking with God: Conversations with God given by Zina Docto at ACC – Ao Nang Community Church in Ao Nang Krabi Thailand on Jan. 15, 2012. It takes a look at the numerous examples that we have of intimate conversations between real people and God. Zina invites us to have our own real and intimate Conversations with God.
