Preaching in an Unreached Village

by Mike
Two hours away, in a small village in the province Chaochoengsao (Thailand), a woman has been praying for someone to share the gospel in her village. God told her He would send a team to her church, and that team would come to her village. But when she talked to her pastor, he said no one was coming.

In faith, she cleaned and prepared rooms for the team she knew God would send. Two weeks later, her pastor shared the good news with her — a team from Madison, Wisconsin in the USA was coming and they would go to her village!

Last night, we hopped into two pickup trucks and drove to this small village. We set up the equipment and met the locals. They showed us their banana trees and gave us mangoes. We invited them to our drama. Just before dark, about 40-50 people came on bicycles and motorbikes.

After we performed our drama, I grabbed the microphone. “We want to tell you about the God who made this world and made each one of us,” I said. “There are six billion people in the world, but He thinks about you every second and wants you to know Him.”

We all shared from our personal testimonies, prayed for the sick, and split into small groups to chat with them. Afterward, the pastor told me that none of the people there that night had ever heard the gospel before! Tonight was the first time many even heard the name of Jesus.

Please pray as this church continues to minister here!
