“MV Dannok Church welcomes you”

Meet the Head Pastor and family

Introducing Pastor Nipon and his wife Kanyanat, who were originally serving with the Thai ministry on Langkawi Island, Malaysia.  Pastor Nipon and family were called to serve the Lord in Dannok, a border town in Thailand near Malaysia. Pastor Nipon and sister Kanyanat started a church in Dannok in 2014 with just 5 believers.

MV Dannok Baptist Church has grown to around 50 plus committed believers, with about 30 children over this time. God has blessed this ministry bringing children who are either abandoned by their parents or single mothers who are involved in the flesh trade. 

Impact the children with family values

There are many street kids that have been forgotten or been abandoned in Dannok roaming the streets without suitable shelter or a proper family environment.

We would gather them up every Sunday and bring them to church to be together.   Pastor Nipon and sister Kanyanat and the church family reach out with love in action, providing them with both physical & spiritual food, taking the opportunity for them to be part of the family.

At times we organise special outings for these children. Indeed we see that this means so much to them who often do not know their biological parents and have not had the benefit of someone caring and loving them as they are.  Many of them work in the nightclubs there or try to survive on the streets each day.

At the moment, we do not have a Christian children’s home in South Thailand to shelter and protect these precious children with house parents and amenities.  Its our vision and prayer that the Lord will provide us with the finances to build a church sanctuary and a place and home for these children in Dannok township.

Pastor Nipon also has on his heart to reach out to the women and young girls in the sex trade.  Some have already received Christ and turned away from their previous profession. Our goal is to provide a training program and safe environment for these women to learn practical skillsets and be more self-reliant with other professions such as hair styling, cooking, home economics, office or retail work etc.

Nurturing the Nurturer as a family

Our goal also is to help them find productive work or source of income to be better equipped as homemakers. So they are able to sustain themselves and take care of their own children more effectively (sometimes this is where the street children come from). The ongoing issues with “street kids” could be potentially resolved by addressing these two important areas.

Life with MV Dannok Blessing Families

Blessing families with needs in Dannok with foodstuffs and second-hand clothing, especially milk powder and rice to single mothers who have babies…this is part of our Little Hugs Ministry for the community.

Partnership in Food Relief with the community

Since last year when this pandemic started, this church has been actively reaching out to the needy communities in Dannok and those badly affected financially by the closure of the borders.

Praise God that His light of love in action has started shine brightly for Jesus. Many pre-believers are already recognising that reaching out and connecting with their neighbours is changing things for the good of the community and are now ready to partner alongside with us, reaching out more into their own community.

Pray that God will bless them richly and they will come to believe that only Jesus can be their Saviour and Lord.

Food Relief for the Community

Dannok’s Prayer life

“In addition to the relief and social issues within the community, there are other important tasks to address. Such as praying for each other, for family, and various needs that arise. But mostly bringing all the Praise and Glory to God for what He has done and doing for us all…Hallelujah!”
