3 days to Phetchabun!

Here are some photos of the team as we embark on our preparations!

Practising for the skit!

Young artists at work!

Origami hearts for the Hmong kids to remind them that each and every of them is loved by God. Also, we will be doing a skit using a heart with a cross-shaped hole in it to tell the kids that nothing, not even money, drugs, friends or games, can ever fill the void in our hearts except God, our Creator and Saviour.

This little light of ours, we’re gonna let it shine!
Practicing our “light sticks” formation to the song “This Little Light of Mine.”

Can you spot the heart?
Practicing our “light sticks” formation to the song “We are one in the bond of love.”

It has been a fun and hectic time of preparing for the trip. But let us bear in mind that without HIS grace, presence and guidance, all our programs will be reduced to nothing.

As we prepare our hearts and the programs, we seek to be HIS servants and shine not for our glory but for HIS glory alone.
Please pray for us that we guard our hearts and thoughts!

Also, let us continue praying for protection and safety of the Lao Hmong refugees and that they will be able to discover that there is still hope in their lives through Christ despite the harsh and difficult circumstances that they are facing.

2 Corinthians 4:5-9
For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake. For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
