Have you found that the third time is the charm?
I’m not so sure about that saying myself, but I know perseverance is good. And I think that’s why Dee and Shy are making a third attempt to share God’s Word in another Prai village.
Dee and Shy are believers among Thailand’s Prai people group, which Julie and I plan to visit in October. A family invited the two to come and teach, but it’s not easy.
Getting there requires a long trek by foot. Excessive drinking, especially by teenagers, helps makes the village a wild and dark place.
The number of people showing up to hear Bible lessons has dwindled since they started in February, but there are reasons for hope.
Three people from one family have heard the Gospel and embraced it, trusting in Jesus. Two young men have not yet made a decision, but are coming to almost every lesson.
Pray that Dee and Shy remain faithful to the task and that the hearts of the villagers are softened to desire God’s Word.
Don’t you think it’d be great to interview Dee and Shy, so people can hear their story and be inspired to help expand the reach of the Gospel? That’s one thing Julie and I hope to do when we’re in Thailand.
