Looking Back…

Written by

A few months ago, the Lord gave us an opportunity to do two English teacher seminars. During the seminar we were able to continue forming the relationships that had been slowly building for the past two years with the teachers. We had the freedom to give out brochures to them and share the gospel with a few teachers. Two of them in particular were very open and asked questions. The Lord gave the right words in Thai to help explain the truths. One teacher said she will share the story with her children and students. She had previously stated, ”You are so kind.” This was an opportunity to share the power Christ gives to do good, and the victory over sin that belongs to His children.

On the last day of Saturday English school for the kids from the village, two students walked up and invited Oksana and I to visit them at their home. 20 minutes later we arrived in their village where we got to meet the families. This was the first time we got to see where our students live. We went to visit the mother of one girl at a field where she worked, farming. It was hot and the mother appeared tired as she shared her hardship of the little fruit the ground had yielded due to the dry rainy season. She offered us a melon and we went off to the other students’ house. Her family lived far out in the jungles. Her father got us coconuts from their backyard and the girls proceeded to invite us to sleepover. Our director said they could sleep over at Avoda and after much begging, the parents allowed them to come over. One girl joyfully replied,” I prayed to Jesus, and my parents let me come!” The fact that their parents let them come was a big step in building relationships. Praise the Lord!

There have been a few changes on our team. Oksana and I are back in the U.S for more training. We are now looking for Gods direction for the near future. Natasha is paying off her loans with a plan to go back to Thailand as soon as she’s done. Anita is in the North of Thailand. Thank you to all who are involved in our lives!
