… And God went before them.
Dave and Steve are reaching out to Phrom Khiri, a small town in southern Thailand. They have found their “men of peace”—two Christians who want to see a Christian cell group formed. On Friday Steve prayed for encouragement—some indication that God was doing something in this town.
The next day Dave and Steve visited with the family of one of their English students. The father, Mon, who came out to greet them was wearing a shirt that had the caption, “Power of Jesus”. Of course he had no idea what he was wearing, but it became the focal point of conversation as they explained to him the meaning. As if this was not enough, they recently saw a man wearing a shirt with Romans 1:16 “I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.”
Christ is showing this team that in fact He is powerfully present in Phrom Khiri, that no matter how many signs they see of the evil one’s activity, Jesus is the One who is really on the throne.
