Just to update everyone, we will not be starting bar ministry until next week so for the time being we are getting spiritually prepared, prayer walking, and intercession worship for the world race team that is staying with us at the time.
Phuket is so beautiful it takes my breath away, the scenery here is amazing! For me nature is how i feel connected to god everyday, whether its a beautiful sunset, a huge storm, rain, a bright sun, rainbow, or the wind. Less than 1 percent of the people here are christians, Most of Thai people practice Buddhism. Their are giant statues of him everywhere you go and their will be offerings laying around these statues with food,cloths,soccer balls, that the people offer everyday. Their are also spirit houses where you can go in private and make offerings and worship Buddha.
Its not that the people do not appreciate all of gods beautiful work ,there just praying and worshipping all of their thanks and energy into a false god.They worship spirits that they believe exist in natural objects such as , trees, stones, water. It makes me wonder if they ever think in their minds, how could such a spirit create all this? How could such an unloving god give me all this beauty? It has to cross some of their minds. And not just these people, people all over the world that believe in a false god. Thats what I pray for daily, I say god please make their minds wonder, because when we ask ourself questions like that our spirit always leads us to the truth or the next place that god can work in us.
How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news"!
