His Peace

By

In the midst of continuing war here, God is working; every week people are responding to Him and finding His peace. It is precious! One Sunday in a new area, people gathered outside for a service and about 50 professed salvation. In another area, where a Christian man built on to his house to provide a place of worship, over 80 children come for Sunday school. Three new church groups have been started since I last wrote . . .

Above the daily noise of bombs, His voice is being heard. People are listening and obeying. The Lord spoke to a former church leader; he repented of wasted years away from God, is now going out onto the streets and has opened his home for services. God has spoken to Chheik, a man who was studying for his doctorate in Scotland; he has returned greatly burdened for his people and just in time to meet an urgent need in youth work. God spoke to us, as missionaries, and led us to set aside four hours daily for prayer and study together for two weeks. Pastors, youth, laymen are now gathering in prayer groups in the churches.

Rumors are that the battling will accelerate as the dry season begins; but He makes His peace precious and real in our hearts. He has kept us—a few weeks ago, a plastic bomb exploded just three blocks away. He has given daily help in language study; I am learning the script now. He has given precious opportunities to share His peace with some who speak English and French. Phong, a nurse whom I met at a hospital, has found Jesus and comes weekly for Bible study. A number of Christian young people come, too, for Bible study in French. Last week, one girl brought two Buddhist friends to whom she had been witnessing; they accepted Christ. On Saturdays, two Buddhist monks and eight girls come for English conversation; we use John’s Gospel as a basis. Sunday afternoons I teach English Bible to Chinese youth at the Chinese C&MA Church. . . .

Praise Him for answered prayer, for His peace and good will. Pray for the country, for all those whom I have mentioned, for the church; for the thousands yet to be reached.
