Let the children comeWork among the children in an Isaan village in Thailand is challenging. The children are bright and energetic but have no guidance or consistent, loving discipline at home. They are often in trouble, skipping school and doing anything thing to get attention. Many times they are rude and disruptive during classes taught by members of the Isaan Team.
This month, the Isaan Team writes: “Although the work there continues to be frustrating and slow, God encouraged us recently through one sixth-grade girl’s actions over her spring break. She went to another part of the country to visit relatives (none of whom are Christians), saw a church (she didn’t know anyone there), and asked her aunt to take her there on Sunday! M attended church there all on her own, not knowing anyone – amazing for a young Thai girl. We’re so thankful to hear that God is working in her heart, encouraging her to take so much initiative to seek out God and Christians.”
Pray for this girl and other children in this village to seek the Lord with all their hearts. Pray for the Isaan team as they work in this village. Ask God to encourage them and bless them with wisdom, creativity and insight. Pray that God will continue to draw these children to Himself.
