Dear Brother and Sister in Christ.
Phimpha here. I am working as a missionary along the border right now. I know people who sacrifice their life to follow the Great commission of Jesus Christ (Mat. 28:19-20) must walk away from what they have if they are truly going to enter into a life of service. Before committing to the Lord, we were working in a different job for living. But when we offer our life to the one who is calling, our life belongs to the Lord and to His leading. No missionary, not even one, wants to sit and create a project just to raise support, or sit and wait for another person’s money to live on. It would be shameful to do that. I have choices but I choose to answer the Great Commandment. In the area where I am working now is along the border between Thai and Cambodia. I have started a project to build a center where broken people can come to receive healing and wholeness. This has been on my heart to do for some years now and feel that the time is right to begin. I received great favor from God as the people sold the land for a cheap price and they also agreed to take four payments as well. We are pressing into God, in faith for this money. I have a team around me praying support and encouraging me to keep on going, even as my faith is being tested! I only seek to follow the vision that God has given me. Some days that is easier than others as I know you all will understand as a child of God. I work in a border region that has seen so much ugliness, where lives have been so affected and are still being affected by all the poverty around them. There is so much despair, brokenness and loss of hope for a better life. Alcohol, drugs and trafficking, both of people and goods is rampant in this area and you can easily think there is no way to help them – but God who came to save those who are lost, to heal the broken and bring sight to the blind has a plan! I can do nothing without Him, of myself I have no wisdom or power, but again and again I have witnessed the power of God’s love turn things and people around. So I am excited as we look to the future and picture the people that are going to come through our doors and find that God has a future and a plan for their lives! I am so thankful for your support financially. We are past the time for the third payment for the land but we have not of what we need. Please patient with me. Please pray with me and offer to support the kingdom of God.
Thank you so much for your love and support.
Phimpha, your sister in Christ.
Mat 28:18 Then Jesus came up and told them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Mat 28:19 Therefore, as you go, disciple people in all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
Mat 28:20 teaching them to obey everything that I’ve commanded you. And remember, I am with you each and every day until the end of the age.”
