Our vision is to see our community and the world changed by Jesus one person at a time. This past Sunday we had the privelege of hearing Kelsie Witham speak about how she got to she this vision become a reality this summer. Kelsie spent her summer serving and sharing the Gospel in China and Thailand. We may not all be called to go overseas like her, but as believers, we are all called to pray for those who are. So how can you change the world from right where you are? Pray. Pray specifically. Pray believing that God will hear your prayers and change the world. Kelsie shared some specific ways to pray for these countries and the oppressed people of China and Thailand. Ways you can pray:
•Pray for salvation to come to the people of Thailand & China
•Pray for guidance about what God wants you to do about what you’ve heard
•Pray for God to open your eyes and break your heart for your sphere of influence
•Pray for the missionaries in Thailand & China (Ed, Glenda, Amanda, Roger, Courtney, Celeste, and Golf)
•Pray that more prostitutes and ladyboys would gain the courage to run from the lives they are living
•Pray for the men who fuel the sex industry. Pray that their eyes and hearts would be open to their sin and that they would find salvation.
•Pray for those who became sisters this summer; Hazel, Claire, and Cheryl. Pray for Christian encouragement and discipleship.
