“Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you,
that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and [that] your fruit should remain:
that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.” John 15:16
Last Sabbath we had a beautiful day worshiping with the EOF dorm students. We were especially happy because it was the first time that we were ALL together since arriving back in Thailand.
Lynette and Elyssa helped with the younger students, followed by Steve’s talk on John chapter 15.
Part of the afternoon program was to teach the students a song in English. As we were deciding, the Holy Spirit stepped in and impressed with an old song titled “Come Holy Spirit.”
The students were motivated, so for an hour and a half we diligently practiced the words and learned the tune. Our voices were getting hoarse by the time we finished, but our hearts were happy.
We are so grateful for the opportunities to spend quality time with these kids. The genuine love they show touches our hearts and gives us the determination and courage to continue to toil in their behalf.
Even though most of our work is administrative, maintaining a personal connection through active service keeps us grounded and focused on why weʼre here. It is our privilege to be the bridge that connects YOU to these students.
We convey our deepest appreciation for the sacrifices you make that they may grow in Christ; in knowledge and in purpose.
