Chiang Rai, Thailand – July 7th, 2014
A torrential downpour greeted us as we emerged from our rooms this morning for an early-morning prayer time with the children from Home of Grace. After eating breakfast, we walked these precious little ones to school.
Next, our morning and early afternoon consisted of praying for members of the local church in their own homes.We sang and worshiped God and laid hands on them. You could feel the heavy and peaceful presence of God in every place even though the rain continued to fall.
We then crossed the border into Myanmar, a country with a military dictatorship that makes Christianity illegal. Some Chinese Christians living there took us to lunch and then to a nursing home where we shared the Gospel boldly and laid hands on and prayed for the residents. It became a powerful time with some of them in tears from the presence of God. After that, we drove to a home church to pray with the pastor’s family before hurrying to make it back across the border before it closed.
At this point, we rejoined the Home of Grace kids for dinner and a show they performed for us. Afterwards, we taught them some English and then finished the day with evening prayer.
We can’t believe how much we did in just one day! God’s presence remained with us throughout the day. Although soggy and cold all day as the rain continued to pour down, we felt grateful for the cool temperatures and full of praise for the opportunities to minister.
