We visited "Tukta" at Ban Nong Song today for praise and worship (she is the ONLY CHRISTIAN in that village and sub district) But isn't it just great that Christians can praise and worship at any place and any time. Bring glory to God and praise Him anytime and any place. And so what if the flies are so irritating, sand flees crawling all over with dust - forget dust but sand all over where you sit, sweat running down your face and back . . . and so much more to "complain". BUT NOTHING OF THIS CAN STOP ONE TO PRAISE AND WORSHIP OUR GOD.
Every Thursday when we go there, people of the village (non believers) are scooping around the house to see what we are doing. Some deliberately sit outside their homes, watching us and listening to every song and word spoken. They are invited and they know that. But we are patiently waiting on God to bring them closer and closer to sit among us and hear His voice speak to them.
Ezekiel 36:22-28 was our Scripture for today. We studied it, discussed it and prayed it in for "Thuuk Thaa" and Ban Nong Song village.
"Tukta" is the only Christian in Ban Nong Song Village. It is really not easy to be in this situation but what a amazing warrior and disciple of Jesus Christ she is. She encourages us so much every time we go there. She lifts our spirit and teaches us about love, faith and hope.
"I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. I will place My Spirit within you and cause you to follow My statutes and carefully observe My ordinances. Then you will live in the land that I gave your fathers; you will be My people, and I will be your God."
