Woke up last night to a very loud sound of something rustling around in my room. Half in a daze I thought, what the heck is in here? Then I realized it was next to my open window. A medium size elephant was pulling up the flowers that grow outside my window. They have not been much trouble lately but come by now and then just to say Hi and let us know they are still around. They will be back more when the dry season comes.
I wanted to tell a quick story. A few weeks ago Phimpha was at a conference. There were around 400 attending. They were in worship and prayer and Phimpha was near the stage praying when the Holy Spirit said: “There is a lady here tonight who is planning to commit suicide when she goes back to her village. I want you to pray with her.” Phimpha replied: “Lord I do not want to just speak out and ask who it is. Lord you know who it is, tell me her name. “ The Holy Spirit told her the first and last name. Phimpha was standing next to a microphone so she reached over and said. “The Holy Spirit just told me that ______ . You are planning to commit suicide and God wants to help you.” The lady stood up and began to cry. Phimpha prayed for her.
It is amazing how God can know everything about each one of us. He knows our name and He knows what we are thinking. He wants to help us. He is such a personal God. At times we think we are alone and no one knows or cares. God knows and He cares and He wants the best for us. He will use others to try to get through to us. He is pure Love.
Jesus said a sparrow does not fall to the ground unnoticed by His Father. How can any being keep track of billions of people and animals and planets and universes? It is beyond comprehension. God is God. There is no other.
Please pray for Thailand and for God’s kingdom to be revealed to the nation. I believe something is going to happen soon. I feel it is going to bring a revival to this land. If we all pray, God will answer. He wants us to pray so He can do His part. The persecution is getting heavier for us so I know satan is trying hard to discourage us. If you are not under attack from satan in one way or another you are not a threat to him. That means you are not following God’s plan for your life.
Thanks to a family out in NH our truck is now debt free. That is one monthly headache out of the way. We were usually late on the payments so if feels good to be done with it. I have almost 650,000 kilometers on the old beast but it is still running pretty good. I will make another run to the north next Monday with rice and supplies for the ones we help there. We are supposed to have a group of around 100 people this Sunday so we are praying we get a lot of items to make the trip more worth it. We have had just a few people the last couple of weeks come out. It has been a nice break for us. When you have no day off a few slow ones help. Many families from the villages nearby have been coming to get food and supplies. It is a great way to get to know them and to share the love of God.
Blessings to All
