On Mother’s Day, the River Team went with flowers to Pa Da’s home. Pa Da (in her 40’s) suffers from many illnesses, which make her fearful about her future. Although Pa Da always feels encouraged by our team’s visits, she has been slow to open her heart to be truly loved. As Yua (Thai team leader) pinned a flower on Pa Da’s blouse, sh reminded the lady about the day her father at the 11th hour found eternal life in his savoir. Yua, said, “Pa Da your dad is now in the loving arms of the Heavenly Father”. Pa Da’s demeanor changed and she exclaimed “You know what? I have not had any bad dreams about my father since he died! He truly was rescued from the dreaded cycle of reincarnation!” Pa Da was then ready to follow her dad’s example! On Mother’s day Pa Da became a child of God! With a grateful heart she sent the team on their way, asking them to come back for another visit as soon as possible.
The River Team has been regularly visiting Pa Khiou in her home. One day a call came from the relatives that the woman was in hospital. This request was great surprise to us, as in the past the family did not want our visit! We prayed as a team and then some went to visit Pa Khiou at the hospital. The lady was delighted to see the team members and expressed readiness to receive Jesus! Following the decision, her countenance changed and she said, “Now I feel so much peace in my heart!”
