As we near the end of our trip, my mind goes through the events of the last nine days. Each day has started early and ended late. Opportunities to serve the Almighty God have been abundant.
Yesterday, we visited a government school. We were able sing for them and interact with them through a mini English lesson and craft. The ZOE Bible students were able to share the gospel with the children as well. It was amazing to see the attentiveness of some of the children as the Bible students explained the gospel through the use of the evangecube in their small groups. We pray seeds were planted and will grow.
These ZOE Bible Scool students have been a special blessing. We have spent a great deal of time with them, joining with them in ministering to the school, village and children's home outreaches. They have come from different places and range in ages from late teens to early 50's. Our common factor has been the desire to know the Lord and share His love with the Thai people. They have been our interpreters, partners and friends.
We will close our time in Thailand tomorrow by celebrating Thanksgiving with the entire ZOE family (children, staff, house parents, Bible School students and missionaries). We will play games, do crafts, and teach them about the American Thanksgiving Holiday. We know there is so much for which to be thankful. We are thankful for the ministry of ZOE and their desire to spread the gospel throughout Thailand, thankful for the work they do to rescue and teach the children the love of the Lord, and thankful for the blessing to serve alongside them for a short time.
