thank God for answered prayer.
Ying is back at home now. She went to stay with a friend. The parents have come down from the hometown and we think she’s got everyone really mad. Pray for love, peace and Christ to be magnified in the family and Ying’s life.
Thank God today we had 2 new faces that came voluntarily to the club. They are pschology majors who needed to make an english presentation the next day. One remarked that English Club is really helpful to her and she’ll like to join us on Friday.
Worked out the menu to have curry chicken and Nasi Lemak for the friday singapore themed english club. Tomorrow, we’ll be doing some shopping and cooking.
Today, we were at Carrefour when Bro Nat called and said that suddenly there was an influx of people in the English club to learn. This wasn’t planned as we don’t have club that day and all our appointments with students that day ended up with Students not coming, that’s why we decided to head to Carrefour. When we were in the carpark heading back, the truck we drove was reversing when I made a turn too early and it hit the honda civic on the right. It caused scratches and a crack. I was feeling really lousy that I wasn’t careful enough and now I had to cause so much trouble and delay to the ministry. I was also worried for what sort of owner would come. Would he/she be a difficult person to deal with? I prayed and asked God to bring a nice person along and to settle the situation amicably. The lady that came was very nice. And eventually the insurance agent came down to help settle the whole situation. I felt really bad for not being more careful when driving a car I’m not used to as it was much bigger then anything i droved before, but Bro Nat, Sis Pat, Gwyneth, Eugene and the other Thai Christians like P Gade, Koi and Apple were all very kind with their words. Gwyneth mentioned that this could be Satan’s way of keeping us away from doing God’s work. Nonetheless, we still succeeded in helping those students out. Earlier in the 1st week, I had reversed Sis Pat’s little red car into a ditch(though with no injuries or damages, except for koi’s feet being pricked by thorns while pushing the car out). Please pray for God’s hand of protection to continue to rest upon the team. To make me more careful that the Devil may not have a foothold to delay or obstruct the ministry here. The lady of the Honda Civic was quite greatful that we did not just leave as she said others would. It’s interesting how something similar happened to Eugene a couple of weeks back too. That experience helped me in deciding fast what was the right thing to do. Thank God for that. It’s a very eventful few weeks I must say. Many “1sts” for me and the team in Chiangmai.
Pray for me that God may give me wise and knowledgeable leadership.
Pray for Eugene and Gwyn who continue to take Pi Pa Gao to sooth the cough and phlegm. They are getting better, thank God.
Pray for a Christian retreat camp by Payap University where we are asked to help plan some station games on sat.
Pray for the baptism of 5 others and 2 transfer-ins for lighthouse BP church on 15th July.
Pray for English camp next Fri-Sat. That we may be able to reach out with the Gospel of Christ.
Pray for Nelson as he shares his testimony on Sunday.
Praise be to the Lord.
Oh Lord our Lord, How excellent is Thy name in all the earth! (Psa 8)
