Thai Summer Project “More Than Enough ” @ Sin Siam Resort Rayong
We returned from the TSP beach retreat last week and now we have begun our summer training at church which includes about 10 students . At the beach there were about 40 students and half of them are not Christian. We focused on the theme “More Than Enough”. Many students said that they got to learn more about how our God is More Than Enough for all things. One girl (AM) said that “when I surrender my life to God then He blesses me more than I can imagine”. She is really growing in her faith which is very encouraging to me. One of the non-Christian students on the retreat said “I am so confused because I have never asked such questions as: Who am I?, Who made me?, Why do I sin?etc…”. I am so glad to hear how they responded so that I can continue answering their questions and helping them take steps forward in knowing our Lord. From this retreat I learned one thing which will impact the way I share the gospel. John 6:44 says, “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day.” I now understand more that knowledge alone cannot change people. God must do a work in their heart if they are going to come to know Him. I don’t have to worry so much about having all the right answers (but I try my best.) I know and trust that God will lead them on His way.
Please pray for :
· Keawwan and Wi; that God will open their hearts if it is His will. (Both girls went on the retreat and have many questions about knowing God.)
· All the students participating in our training over the next 4 weeks; that God will teach and help them to get to know Him more.
· Summer of Renewal staff retreat on 20th April – 14th May 09 .
Love in Christ
