World Snippets are short stories about what God is doing around the world. They are incorporated into the Pray Daily publication and distributed bimonthly (mail and email). These stories come direct from Global Interaction cross-cultural workers. World Snippets is suitable for use in church bulletins or for a short ‘mission spot’, as well as for small groups.
July - August
Many people in the rural area of Thailand where our cross-cultural workers live, are illiterate. Larry and Jan have been challenged to find a way that those who cannot read can study the Bible.
Thanks to Baptist church support, Larry and Jan have bought MP3 players. Larry loaded Christian radio programs and songs onto the first one and gave it to a local believer, Bua Gaew, who is house-bound. She loves it and has been listening to it with her husband, Yot. It has been so popular that Yot takes it to the fields with him and plays it to his friends!
Larry and Jan will now focus on finding Bible readings in the local language and will prepare this technology for believers and other interested Ethnic Thai people who struggle with reading.
Join us in praying for Bua Gaew and Yot to grow in their faith and continue witnessing to their local community.
Cross-cultural workers R & B were invited to take part in an impromptu anthropological forum in Professor Ma’s class. A Global Interaction volunteer has been working with this professor who is part of the H people group. R & B were asked about their own Indian culture and their belief system.
There were a few H students from the local community in the class and they asked very significant and interesting questions about their personal beliefs. Since it was not their own class and since they were asked the questions, R & B could answer the questions freely.
Professor Ma has expressed his desire to maintain regular contact with R & B so please join us in praying for him and his wife, also a teacher, that God will reveal Himself through this new relationship. Also pray for the students that heard about following Jesus for the first time, that God would touch their hearts and open further opportunities to ask questions.
