Just The Right Time
My husband, Ps Ping, and I thank God for His blessings over our ministry here in Thailand. He has been with us all the time - equipping and providing for us with all we need as we serve here in the Payakkaphumphisai Methodist Church. On top of this, He has allowed us to not only plant and work alongside the church members to nurture pre-believers but also to reap the harvest. Praise be to God for His grace, love, and mercy in this place.
A year before the COVID-19 pandemic started, Ps Ping gave out some audio players. These audio players came with an SD card pre-loaded with Northeast Thai (Isaan) Christian music, sermons, and devotions. Little did we know how useful this device would be in the time of lockdown during the pandemic.
He first distributed them to our church members and youth. They listened to their devices in their homes and they also brought them along while they were working outside. As they played the audio players, their family members and neighbours heard the Good News being proclaimed and they grew an interest to it. Soon, many of our church members requested for more of these audio players as their family members and neighbours were asking if they could acquire them. Thereafter, a follow-up session was organised in the form of a lunchtime gathering at our church member’s house. All our church members in her village gathered and the pre-believers were invited to join us.
Subsequently, during the lockdown when everyone could not go to church, they continued to listen to the music and sermons in the devices. When we reopened after the three-month lockdown, all our members including the pre-believers, who used to attend the church service before the lockdown, came back to church! We praise God that ever since, we have witnessed a constant stream of pre-believers coming to church, accepting Christ’s love for them, and getting baptised.
Galatians 6:9, NLT says, “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.”
Thanks be to God.
