MISSIONS MOMENT - Becka McMurphy - Missionary to Thailand

January—February 2018

One Year Anniversary: I remember when I was in college, one of my writing assignments was to write a one-year report letter as if I had been on the field for one year.  I can’t believe I’m actually writing it now!  Feb. 1st marked the one-year point of being in Thailand.  It’s so crazy to look back on the past year and see all that the Lord has done.  He has given me so many blessings that I could write page after page of all that the Lord has done for me, in me, and through me.  I have officially finished with language school.  I’m nowhere near fluent, but I have learned so much.

As I reflect on this year of living in Bangkok, one thing is constant—the Lord’s faithfulness.  No matter what the situation, good or bad, He was always by my side.  This past year has been full of learning a new language and culture, making new friends, and experiencing new things.  I’m so
thankful for this opportunity to minister alongside other missionaries here in Bangkok to reach the Thai people for Christ. Thank you so much for your love and support this past year.  It would not have been possible without your prayers and financial support.  May the Lord bless you for your faithfulness!

In Case You Didn’t Hear—I’m Engaged! I have been dating Justin Trill for about a year and a half.  I’m grateful that the Lord has given us strength to continue a long-distance relationship. Justin is the son of Pastor Matt Trill in Largo, FL, and during this past year, he has been completing his internship requirements at Cherry Street Baptist.

January was definitely full of surprises—my favorite being when Justin came over to Thailand. While he was here, he asked me to marry him!  We will be getting married June 23 in Largo, FL. We are looking forward to what the future holds and are excited to be in the process of becoming career missionaries through the BBFI in September this year.

Our hearts will forever be in Thailand, and we can’t wait to be back here and start our ministry
together.

Prayer Requests

  • Please pray for me as I transition back to the States in April.
  • Pray for those who will come behind me in my ministries here at Bangjak, and that it will be a smooth transition.
  • Please pray for Justin and me as we pursue our call to missions in becoming career missionaries to Thailand through the BBFI.
  • Continue to pray for all the different ministries connected with Bangjak Baptist Church and wisdom for the leadership of the church.
