So much to write about so little time to write.
Sometimes we just do not understand. We think we know but really we do not. I think it is that way a lot when we think of God. We think we know Him or how He thinks but really we haven’t got a clue. He even tells us (Isaiah 55) His thought are so far beyond His thoughts that we can not even begin to comprehend what He thinks, but yet, many times we still think we know, and we try to put God into a little box and tell ourselves He must be like this. We have so much to learn yet never will. No one can comprehend God. We can not. It is impossible for us to do.
Anyway we have had a lady living with us off and on for many months now. She is not quite right mentally. Very normal in many respects but sometimes she just speaks things that seem to make her seem not of this world. She goes off sideways at times. Just before the ladies conference she was speaking foolishness and with the work load that Phimpha had we just could not deal with her at the time so we took her to the hospital where they work with people like her. We assumed she was not taking her medication and that is why she was going off. She was obsessed that she had to protect Phimpha from one of our helpers. She accused the help of stealing from us. She told Phimpha not to eat the food that this person cooked for her because it was poisoned. She would not let our helper into our room and would block her way and follow her around. She did not even want her walking by Phimpha’s clothes hanging on the line because she was afraid the helper would drop poison on them and make Phimpha sick. We just could not deal with her so we sent her out for help. She needed more attention then we could give her at that time. As she was leaving she told Phimpha she was praying God would reveal to her that all she was telling us was true. Then last week we come to find out it was all true. Seems while I was in the states our help decided to get rid of Phimpha thinking then she could take over her position and I would return from the states to help her continue the ministry. She wanted to be the “big person” like so many here in this country do. At first she asked her boyfriend to kill Phimpha outright but he said he could not do that. So she decided to poison Phimpha. So for a couple of weeks she prepared special meals for Phimpha, which Phimpha said was really great tasting. She ate and ate and said she even gained weight from eating so much of the good cooking. Little did she know it was laced with poison. It should have killed her many times over but Phimpha never even got sick. God protected her as His word says in the book of Mark:Mar 16:17 And miraculous signs will follow to those believing these things: in My name they will cast out demons; they will speak new tongues;
Mar 16:18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them. They will lay hands on the sick, and they will be well.
Can you imagine what our helper was thinking. She should be dead by now with as much poison I have feed her. This stuff must be no good. I’l add more tomorrow. I guess she finally just gave up. And she was stealing from us in more ways than just money. All the time the one who knew we thought was a little crazy was right on track. She was trying to protect Phimpha. So today we are off to get her back from the hospital. She is still a hand full at times but we do what we can.
Our helper has left for now after Phimpha finally revealed to her that she knew everything. Please pray for her to turn so God can heal her.
Also pray for a new cook for us. Low pay if any. Many hours of work, with many hungry kids around. Preferably one who is content with where they are at.
What is your calling? We are ALL called by God to do work for Him. To further the spread of His word. We all have a gift. Some may seem more important that others but they are all necessary. The feet are a low part of the body but with out them we are severely limited. All parts of the body of Christ are important. We must do our part or loose the blessing. Wake up! Get out of your comfort zone and follow the call. He IS calling you.
Blessing from our house to yours.

This is Phimpha’s personal experience being protect by God. It is not about Phimpha being special it is just Grace from God to His servants. She is nothing without God.
