Coming Back to Phra Baht

Written by Karl Dahlfred on .

It has been really good to finally arrive back in Phra Baht after four months in the States. We got in on Saturday evening and found our house in fine condition, with a very green yard due to all the rain during the past few months. Two of our banana trees had big big bunches on them, still quite green. Pastor Jarun and his wife had been taking care of the place while we had been gone. We are thankful for their help and are glad that they have been able to take advantage of our house while we have been away.

Aside from the surroundings, we really enjoyed seeing folks at church on Sunday morning and beginning to catch up with what has been going on in their lives while we have been away. One fellow may move to another province soon, one woman has changed jobs because her employer wouldn't allow her to go to church on Sunday. Sun chatted with two elderly ladies who may be interested in helping us with evangelism. Sun and I are both feeling rather strong these days and eager to get out there and share the Gospel - both on an individual basis and in more direct evangelism - tracting and open air evangelism. On Sunday evening, we got to chat with our neighbors who had gathered across the street from our house in the community area for our neighborhood. A few months ago, the neighborhood committee put in some

outdoor exercise machines and people come regularly, morning and evening, to use them. That's good news for us because not only do we have a convenient and free place to exercise, but we have a natural place to meet our neighbors, build relationships, and share the Gospel. Anytime we hear the squeak-squeak-squeak of the equipment, we know that some one is out there.

We are looking forward to seeing what the Lord will do as we get our there a lot more and spend time with people. We have high hopes of gathering some Thai believers, and little by little training them in evangelism as both they and we get some hands on experience in sharing the Gospel. May not only our words, but our lives be a bright and shining testimony to the truth and grace of the Lord Jesus Christ.
