Right now I am up north of Thailand in Chiang Rai, one of Avodas projects with three other group members. We are living among two different tribes where we are teaching and building a church building out of bamboo. I am teaching English to children and adults and have a wonderful opportunity to share the good news and invite them to church. One man is interested and asks many questions about God, as well as started to visit church.
One woman who also started visiting classes, but whose health is in critical condition is in need of prayer as well. Please pray for an opportunity to share the good news with her and form a good relationship.
The Lord is softening the hearts and allowing good relationships to form with my students. Once a week I also have an opportunity to spend time with a group of teenage girls where we share what foods we can cook and teach to pray one for another.
Please pray for wisdom in preparation of English lessons and in understanding their language.
We are hoping now to meet up with a group of teenagers from Laos who had lived with us a year ago, but have returned to their homes. They had heard about God before and it would be great to meet up with them and encourage them to stay strong in faith. Please pray for everything to go well with their visas that we could spend a few days together.
In February, I will be opening a new visa in order to continue my stay here. Please pray for the Lord to open the hearts of the officials.
May you be blessed! I am thankful that we can continue the same work in different parts of the world!
