But it doesn’t stop there. That is just the beginning. It also gives me great joy when that new Thai believer begins to learn to walk with God as a disciple and follower of Jesus and begins to share their faith with others and lead others to Christ and learn what Jesus meant when He said in Matthew 4:19, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” It gives me great joy to see them give of their time and mentor new believers.
I want to thank all of you who have been praying for us and reading these updates each day. I pray that they have helped you to see what an awesome God we serve and how deeply our Lord loves all these unreached peoples living in and around Northern Thailand and how He has invited us to join Him in His great work.
Today, I want to ask you to join us in praying for a few missionaries that partner with us in a very special way on a regular basis through Grace Language School like Keith & Taran, Alexa, Glen, Jodie, Derek & Jodi, Brian, and a host of other people from our church family… like Gary and Mem, and Kim and Gahn, and Jon and Chrissy, etc…. who all serve on the field here in Northern Thailand. I think I speak for most of us when I say that this is a time of year that is a time of high emotional strain and adjustment.
Pray for them - us. Yes. Pray for us earnestly. We need your prayers. But do not stop there. Write us an email. SEND US A CHRISTMAS CARD. Send us a care package. Send our children a small gift for Christmas. Make a small Christmas donation on our behalf expressing your support of our mission. Reach out to your missionaries this Christmas in a meaningful way
Our last Prayer time focused our time of prayer on God’s Word changing the lives of people. Today we want to follow up on that concept and highlight what God says in His Word about what should be one of the main objectives of our lives.
Prayer Example: “Lord, we thank You that You are at work in Northern Thailand and establishing a church that has a community focus and wants to be used of you to reach into all areas of their community with the Word of God. We pray for them as they gather for worship and a time of teaching this Sunday. May you help Pastor Michael and others who preach speak the Word of God boldly and may you bless Phet and others as they translates these messages into Central Thai. We pray for Your Word to change the hearts and lives of people and help them to love You with all of their heart and to reach out and love their neighbors and be the salt and light of Jesus in that place. We pray this in Jesus name and for His sake. Amen.”
