A Prayer Challenge for YOU

I love being in Thailand. The longer I am here, the fonder my heart grows for the people.  The Thais need Jesus!!!  But, there is a specific group of thais that I would like to write about….the prostitutes. I have a challenge for you tonight. Later this evening a large group of us consisting of Christina and me, a visiting team from South Africa and Bible School students will be heading to the streets to minister to the prostitutes. This will be a brand new experience for all of us.

So this is my challenge to you…Please pray for us while we are out. We will be gone from 8 o’clock pm (3 hours from now) to probably 10:00 or 11:00. If you could stand with us in prayer for those few hours it would be appreciated so much. And it would be even more encouraging if you could leave a comment on this post letting me know that you will be praying. That way I can let our group know. Also, I know that I don’t need to mention this, but, please don’t just pray for us, but pray for the women we will be talking with. Pray that they would realize that they can be set free in Jesus’ name! That there is hope for them!

Thank you so much!

Vegetarian Festival ~ Please Pray!

It is now October and in Thailand this month  marks the time for the “great” Vegetarian Festival of 2009. Or in other words, marks one of the darkest spiritual times of the year in the country.

The Vegetarian Festival a.k.a. the Gin Jay Festival is celebrated by Buddhists of Chinese descent and is started with the raising of a pole at Chinese temples around the country which signal the nine gods (I’m not sure what these gods are) to come down to earth. This event is a very colorful and dramatic celebration which takes place during the first nine days of the ninth lunar month of the Chinese calendar. The 9-day event is usually in late September or early October. During this time, devout Chinese Buddhists dress in white clothes, convert to vegetarians and observe a certain list of ten rules in order to purify their minds and bodies. Besides a strict vegetarian diet and temple offering, some other “(demonic) highlights” of the festival include acts of self -mortification such as climbing knife – blade ladders, walking on hot coals, a ritual of bridge – crossing and a street – procession in which mediums dressed in pink and are in a state of trance have their cheeks pierced and bodies spiked with various types of sharp objects. I will also mention that Brian said all of this is done without any bloodshed.

To me, all of this information makes me want to pray more and harder for the Thail people and for our team. Satan is always on the attack. I have already been experiencing some fear and both, Mary Beth and I, have been experiencing bad dreams. I know that doesn’t sound like much, but, Brian says things like these usually happen even more during this time of the year as results from such strong demonic forces around us. But, we know that we are children of the Most High God and we will not give in to these attacks. Please pray for us!

New Pictures!

Hey Ya’ll!

I just went to Malaysia with Brian and Mary Beth last week to get a new visa so that I can stay in Thailand longer. We had a great time together! I kept forgetting to take pictures while I was there, but, I did take some of the beautiful view I had from my hotel room. Check them out ! ~ From the Land of Smiles
