What a whirlwind of events happened this side of the globe. We had to leave the country due to not getting a visa to Thailand and the only option was to fly to Malaysia. Off course we did not mind visiting our friends and FGC church in Johor Bahru. All of this, only to get back over the border to receive our 3month visa and after that our 1 year visa. Drama, but we had fun. It was eat till you drop, 3 times a day. Gideon as crowned the King of the prawns, Anton the King of the bones!!!! We had wonderful fellowship with dear friends and could even sit back and listen to our beloved Ps. James, preaching to us. What a privilege to know these guys around 20 years now and still be able to keep in touch. Felt like home in Asia.
Currently having a team from FGCJB here and off course they are hard at work. Praise God for 2 students that gave their hearts to the Lord on Sunday. For this week there will be Power Kids and there will be a very busy time laying ahead for these guys that came and visit. Pray for these 2 teams from FGCJB that the Lord will bless them mightily and that Jesus will be heard by many kids. Took them to Apo and they prayed for him. Good to see people investing time, praying for the sick. Pray that we can come up with some ideas to give more Hope to Apo in ways of giving him some kind of a job to do. Any ideas please. Remember he is paralyzed.
Today, one of my good friends from Thor Piang Rosey, got badly hurt, while crashing into a car, on his bike. They are the leaders of the small church there. Currently they are on their way to Battambang to the same hospital that I went to. I will go down tomorrow to go and see how they are doing. Seems that he broke his leg badly and has some head injury as well. Some of you that went with me there will know this guy as we always stop at his house and do medical. Pray for healing and restoration for his health.
One of our friends in Lowman report that the Lord sent just enough rain in one night to damp the fire enough so that the firefighters can better control it. they are already back in the cabin again. Praise the Lord as there are still people that cannot go home, due to the huge forest fires. Pray that God will intervene.
Our prayer for Syria this week:
Isaiah 61:2 “To proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn”
Father, thank You that Syrians are in Your hands. Thank You that You have not forgotten them and that You have not looked the other way. Thank You that You see and You hear… and You will take back the land that the enemy has stolen. Thank You that You hear our prayers. Thank You that not one prayer that is prayed will fall to the ground unanswered. Thank You that You will act on our behalf. You will act on their behalf. You WILL seek vengeance. You WILL comfort all who mourn. You WILL take back the land (land, people, hearts, lives, lies of religion… truth of relationship) that the enemy has taken. God, this is the year of Your favour! Come, Lord Jesus, come!! Holy Spirit come and take Your place in people’s hearts I pray. You are near to all who call upon Your name.
Thank you again for praying for us. The enemy is really running around here to destroy lives. The stories out of the villages are horrifying as people make use of witch doctors for healing.
