Faith in Adversity

God does not promise that there will be no persecution. On the contrary, there will be. But at the same time, He offers to those who follow Him the gift of a great family of Christians who will support one another and fill the emptiness of the hearts of those who abandoned loved ones to follow Christ.

The Hill Tribe People of Ratanakiri

Later, when Jonathan told me about the mission’s invitation to start a new project in Ratanakiri province, I was very surprised. We had felt drawn to this area since our first visit. And just two weeks earlier, I had begun praying for God to open a way for us to work with dedicated young people and to apprentice them in mission service, a calling we have sensed building over several years. Could this be God’s answer to that prayer?

Enough and Loved

Like a ship hoisting full sails, yet without a rudder, every gust of wind blows them in a chaotic course with no discernible destination. Yet, we believe that as we work to establish emotionally healthy spiritual family groups here in northeast Thailand, these children and adults will find a place of healing and hope.

Striving for More

Even though the church was not actively ministering, Deon and I began praying in front of empty pots before feeding homeless people. God would miraculously provide everything we needed.

Tractor Man

Over and over, Madu and Asli thanked us profusely. Shortly after, Madu came unannounced with his big tractor, mowed thick brush on our property for several hours, and refused payment. I could not believe it was the same Tractor Man. We could not believe how God was answering our prayers.

Despite my handicap, the Overcomers’ Conference was a tremendous blessing, not just to those who attended but to Laurie and myself as well. We have been asked to do another similar conference as soon as possible. Thank you for your prayers.
