Greater Things Have Yet To Come, Greater Things Are Still to Be Done in This City- Day 2, Thailand Missions

 

Today, my team and I started this morning in worship together at a beautiful Anglican Church in Bangkok followed by a Communion service.  What better way to begin a mission like this by worshipping our God in spirit and in truth.  Since we arrived I have felt an overwhelming since of heaviness due to all that is in this area. Although it was VERY different from what I am used too in my non-traditional church back home it was what we all needed.

As I kneeled to take communion I was surrounded by beautiful Thai, Indian, European, Caucasian, African, people.  I was comforted at that moment thinking, “this is what the Kingdom of Heaven must truly look like.” The service today gave me even greater peace, the peace of God that surpasses all understanding.

 

After lunch at a wonderful Indian restaurant, my team and I walked and prayed through the Red Light District of Patpong.  The streets were pretty much vacant for now, with few people setting up here and there for the great traffic of people to flood the streets later on.  The bars (fetish, gay bars, strip clubs, etc) with perverse names were empty, which we are told will look totally different a few hours from now. It was comforting to see Rahab Ministries (one of Adventures in Missions Ministry Partners) in the middle of the Red Light District.  This is a ministry that teaches women another trade who want out of working in the bars.  As I walked through this area, I prayed for the long term missionaries that come here.  I also prayed that more laborers will be drawn to this place to continue to water the seeds that are planted this week. This ministry serves as another reminder that….

Tonight, we go back out in groups with various tasks to various places.  I will update these blogs with photos after our trip.  Photos are being taken, but I am personally not taking them. For our safety most of us leave our cameras back at our accommodations. Our goal is simply to BE the light, Christ is in the world. We are to be His hands and feet.  We are to be His mouthpiece. What we do is for His glory, not our own.

  1. This is what the KINGDOM of GOD is all about, spreading the GOOD NEWS of the GOSPEL. It’s great just great, to GOD BE THE GLORY. Keep letting your light shine, before men, so that those who are in the dark places of their lives will want to come to the light and experience all that God has for them. Be Blessed and Be safe.
