Pastor Warawuth (Oie) Touttah's Ordination Service
1 October 2009

Order of Service

First, Word Baptist Church voted to organize and called for the examination of Brother Touttah which he passed with flying colors. The Ordination Committee (Presbytery) then laid their hands on Brother Oie with prayer for him. Missionary Richard Guay then preached the charge to him and the Church. They then called him as their Pastor, and he took charge of the service. Pastor Oie's first official act as pastor was to recommended that they call and license Brother Somsak (Sak) Selanitneron to the Gospel ministry as his helper which they did. The votes for both Brother Oie and Brother Sak were 100%.

Picture #5 & 6: Missionary Richard Guay preached the charge from the text of 2 Timothy 4:1-3:

"I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears."

A Few Words From Missionary John Henry & Pastor Warawuth Touttah

Since becoming a missionary in April, 1988 I have been used of the Lord to help ordained 5 Thai and Laotian men that I have helped to train. Bro. Oie is the last of those 5. I am very proud of him and pleased with his strong Biblical stand. Bro. Oie continues to help me with our daily Gospel radio program, and with the Bible Institute. Bro. Oie asks for your prayers in the following activities. -- John Henry
