Ask, seek and knock
Recently, we were able to host a short-term team of 8 people from our home church back in the U.S. Part of the trip involved having the team help us with a 2-day English Camp at a local school in Phrom Khiri. Since the agreement with the school and the emphasis for the 2 days was on English teaching, we weren’t quite sure whether we would be allowed to share about Christianity as part of the camp. Would it be okay to share about Jesus Christ?
The bible says, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you ” (Matt. 7:7). And so we decided that the best thing to do was to pray and simply ask! When we arrived at the school on the first day in the morning, I asked the Thai teacher whether it was okay for us to talk about Christianity and Jesus. She responded by saying that we could do whatever we want, and that it would be good for the students to learn about Christianity as well.
As a result, we were able to share openly about the meaning of the body worship and drama skit the short-term team had prepared, and every student heard the gospel through the salvation bracelet activity as well. Praise God for these open doors and spiritual breakthroughs. Praise God for a successful 2-day English Camp. Please pray that the seeds that were planted during this time would grow and that this would be a good beginning to building relationships with the community in Phrom Khiri.
