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!

His Love

How can one express the sweetness of Christ’s love? Are there words? Because when I try to describe His ever steady and unfailing love…I am speechless.  And when I think of how he has made me his daughter and the bride of his Son, I am so overwhelmed that all I can do is smile and cry. What have I done to deserve this love?  Have I not sinned against him and broken his laws? Have I not broken his heart with my rebellion? So why has he placed me in such a place of honor and trust? His love is just sometimes…unexplainable.

Thailand Happenings

Wow! Today marks 1 month and 12 days that I have been here in Thailand already, and, I can honestly say that everything is going very well. I can’t imagine being anywhere else at this moment in time. God has been so good to open my heart and show me things that I have never seen or experienced before.

Quite a bit has been happening here in the last couple of weeks. On the 11th and 12th, a few groups of students from one of the schools in Hat Yai came to our house to interview me for an English project. Long story short, It ended up that most of their questions were about Jesus and how to have a relationship with Him! And because there were a few groups from the same class, the Gospel was shared with their class probably 3 or 4 times!

Then, on the 14th, the team took the Bible students from Hat Yai on a retreat to the Pruett family’s house in Naratiwat. It was so much fun! I was able to reconnect with some of the students that Dad and I had met in January and hung out with them for a few days. It was an encouraging time together as brothers and sisters in Christ.  I also got to help Mrs. Pruett at their coffee shop which was opened a few months ago. That was also a lot of fun.

On the 17th, I went to a village with the Garsee family, called Ow Luk (at least that’s how I think it’s spelled). Being with Garsees and in Ow Luk was also a really neat experience. One evening we went to a rubber tree farm to show the Jesus Film to about 60 people. After the movie, we prayed for some people who needed healing in their bodies and guess what….they were healed!! And not only that, 22 people raised their hands to accept Christ as their Savior!  We just kept thanking the Lord because it was nothing that we did that could have turned their hearts towards Him.

Well, those are the biggest things that have been happening around here lately. I’m still taking Thai and doing outreach and helping Mary Beth with her children. And tomorrow morning I start teaching Sunday school class at church!

I’m sorry there are no pictures this time. I can’t find my camera cord! 😦

And Oh! Did I mention that I just got back from learning how to drive a motor scooter???   God bless!

Thailand At Last

Hello from Thailand!!! I am officially here 🙂 . Wow, what a great journey to a great place filled with great people.  It feels so good to be back with Brian & Mary Beth (MB) and their family again.  Tonight we had a very nice fellowship, worship, and prayer time with the Garsee family and Christina (fellow single girl 🙂 ) I truly believe that the presence of the Lord was and is with us. It was encouraging to be with everyone.

 I haven’t really taken any pictures yet, but, I hope to start tomorrow. I did put one up of my little friend though – www.megan-picturesfromthailand.blogspot.com .

 

Thank you every one again for your prayers! I apologize if this post was poorly written, but, I am struggling with heavy jet lag at the moment.  

And oh, did I mention that it’s very hot here????…and that I have no air conditioning in my room? Thank the Lord for fans!!
