What We've Been Up To
We hope you guys are doing well! We wanted to catch you guys up on what’s been going on in our lives recently. Here’s a few pictures from the last few weeks.
This week one of our students is specifically on our hearts, because she will likely be having her first child this week! Every week some of us on our team visit the red light districts and bars to build relationships and offer them a way out. Gam had been working in one of the red light districts we visit, however, this isn't how we met her. Gam heard about Jesus for the first time ever on a video on facebook. She was so captured by what she heard, and she wanted to know more! She remembered she had once seen one of her facebook friends write about God, and so she reached out to him. He told her about a church he had visited before in Bangkok. This church happened to be Samaritan Creation's partnership church, AND it was only 5 streets down from where she lived! We met her that next day, and she was really interested in joining Samaritans.
Fast forward a bit, and she joined our program. It's just been so incredible so watch her grow and see how the Lord has been working in her life. She found out she was pregnant after just two weeks of being at Samaritans. She's continually said how thankful she is for God's timing in all of it- as now she has a family at SC and hope in Christ! It's been really sweet to see how excited she is to meet her daughter and to be able to share about Jesus with her! Please join us in praying for Gam and her daughter, Arin. Pray for strength, grace, and encouragement for Gam as she begins this next season of life and welcomes her daughter into this world!
We recently made a video for our home church, Christ Community Church, to share with the congregation. We wanted to share this video with you all as well. You'll hear more about Gam in the video below!
We are so grateful for all of you and the huge part you play in what God is doing here. Please let us know how we can be praying for you and your communities.
