One more month has gone by, but it’s been a great blessing! After many prayers with tears and fasting, God let us see the breakthrough in many areas of our ministry!
One of the most amazing news is that our factory workers have accepted Christ! Avoda has a small alum crystal factory, where we produce deodorants to support the basic needs of the ministry, give jobs to people in the village and shine the light of the Gospel to them. We have six ladies who have been working with us since the factory was opened, and daily they were taught the Word of God at morning devotions, and had seen the prayers answered about orders, still their journey to salvation was quite long in our human understanding.
However, we thank God for His mercy and faithfulness, that His promises are always true “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” (Luke 11:9). Wepray for these women, for the Holy Spirit to guide them and give them wisdom in their relationship with their families, which is the main stumbling block for many Thai Christians. Also, the football ministry started by our teen boys is really flourishing! The target group is boys who live in the villages around our mission station. Many of them have no purpose in life and start using drugs and alcohol since early age. Our goal is to tell them about the Way of Salvation through Jesus Christ, and sport is a universal language that transcends all cultural, religious, and economic barriers, that we can use as a tool to reach the teens with the Gospel! Before every practice we build relationship with the young men, sharing with them about our belief. Then we go to the practical application, honoring God and giving all glory to Him. We teach the young men to apply Biblical principles they’ve learned, bringing the best out of them, maintaining standards of excellence, encouraging and challenging them, and demonstrating respect to one another. For now we’re working at three locations with 45 boys, and more are willing to come! In March we plan big tournaments between the three teams. We invited all the boys, their friends and families and we pray for God to do His work in the hearts of these people through us.
With all these great things coming, we pray that devil might not outwit us, for we are not unaware of his schemes.(2 Cor.2:11). We ask you to join in prayer for all the people that we work with, that God would open their hearts and minds; for those who already accepted Him, that they would not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of their mind. Then they will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2
