Prayer Guide for GRN Thailand April 2024

简体中文 目前没有此页面.

Dear Prayer Partners,

A missionary going into an unreached people group discovered that God was already there! What does it mean in Ecclesiastes 3:11 where it says "He has put eternity in their hearts"? Could it be that an unreached people group has been thinking along lines that have a bit of an eternal look? During the storying workshop held in our office in February we did a lot of thinking about felt needs and redemptive themes. We're fortunate to have several language groups represented by our Thai staff. We chose three for our study: Hmong, Northern Thai and Isaan. It was very interesting to see the redemptive themes of Love, Family, Provider and Honor. We then chose Bible stories that highlighted the redemptive themes.

Please join us in prayer as we continue in a fresh way to match Bible stories to the heart longings of the people groups of Thailand and beyond! Thank you so much.
