Life's a Journey! Since the beginning of the year, Life has been a journey! We have had many retreats and traveled a lot.
Women's retreat in BKK for staff women and wives. January 28-30.
It was arefreshing and encouraging time.We did activities to help us focus on the Lord and what He has done in our lives. Thank God for all who hosted and helped. They were such a blessing.
Resource team retreat. February 11-13.
I am excited every year when we have our RT retreat! I am excited about what we focused on and learnt together. Our Theme this year was “Effectiveness”. The passage we used is from Ephesians 5:15-17. As a team, we would like to develop in effectiveness in our lives and our work.
CT women’s retreat. February 21-21.
God’s love compels us! This was our theme for CT women's retreat. It was our first time to have a retreat to encourage our postgraduate women who are serving and laboring in love at the church. It was encouraging that God reminded us to give our lives to Christ and then give our lives to others. The love of Christ in us will compel us to do these things by reflecting the glory of God. 2 Cor 5:14-15
KKU Evangelistic Retreat. February 26-28.
There was an evangelistic retreat in Ubonrat Dam. There were about 40 people including 20 non-believers, which was more than last year! We went to volunteer at the Disabled Center. We painted a mural on a wall, cleaned, planted trees, played games and did a craft with them. There was also a speaker who came and talked about how we rely social media and put our identity into that instead of God. Please pray for their salvation.
Please pray for Gibgob. She is a second year German major. She attend the COSC last year and knows a lot about God. She went to the Evangelistic retreat and heard the gospel again. After the retreat, she initiated hanging out and told us that she wants to know even more about God and how he can help her with her current problems! Praise the Lord! One barrier to her is believing only Jesus died to save everyone. She wonders how only one person can manage that while playing a part everyone’s life! Please pray that God will open her heart to understand and receive Jesus as her savior. Pray for Earn, who is going to meet and help her to learn more about God in the Knowing God book.
God Gives Great Opportunities!
I’ve seen God use me to meet people and share the gospel at the walking track around the lake. God can use us through our normal activities that we do! There are opportunities!
Mindmintis a Statistic freshmen girl. She likes to exercise by walking with me in the mornings and this has become a regular thing. This is a great opportunity to be her friend and share the gospel with her. Kung is an old friend I met, at the lake. She just moved to work in KK. I think this is also a great opportunity to share the love of Christ with her!
"Thank you so much for your love, prayers and support"
Sharing the true meaning of Christmas and giving gifts.
"Church Christmas Service"
"Give Jesus story books for students from Nonmaung school"
"Caroling at the village near our church"
"Showing love by prayers"
I was encouraged by PenNy.
She invited her high school students to come to her house for a Christmas party. She used this opportunity to share why we celebrate Christmas and got into the gospel. It was the first time that they knew that we celebrate Jesus' birthday!!! It was such a blessing timeand it was fun playing games.
Giving gifts and sharing what we thankful for through the pass year.
The students I know learn a multicultural class, so they came to interview the foreigners in our church. Thank God for the opportunity to share our belief with them.
“I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.”
"Thank you so much for being a part of ministry here. Thanks for your love, support and prayers"
God bless you in everything that you do and be the blessing to others. I am really excited for what God is going to do in our lives through the coming year!!!
