I was talking with someone today about the Night To Be Much Observed/Remembered, and the conversation turned to how the Church is much smaller and seems more inclined for some congregations to meet together as a congregation rather as smaller groups in people’s homes. So, I put together a poll to see how many are meeting as a congregation vs in homes (vs something else altogether). The poll is at the side and also at the bottom of this post.
First, though, I came home to find an email prayer request from Leon Sexton of Legacy Institute in Chiang Mai, Thailand. There are very few workers in Asia as compared to the western nations, and SE Asia in particular. Please include them in your prayers.
Please pray for 2 of our Legacy team who were in a motorcycle accident last evening. Legacy employee Surachai and student Moe Palay were both on a motorcycle that was hit from behind by a speeding pickup truck on the main highway. They both flew off the motorcycle and sustained serious injuries. They were taken to the emergency room and Legacy instructor Tyler Kincade was quickly on the scene with Gloria following soon after.
Surachai had to be operated on for internal bleeding. He has a bruised liver and kidney and his spleen was removed due to severe damage; and a punctured lung from two broken ribs. Moe Paley sustained a lot of scrapes and bruises a sprained ankle and a fractured rib. Surachai is in ICU and Moe Palay is in recovery.
Please pray for their complete recovery. They are both very valuable to God’s Work in Asia. Surachai is my driver and handiman. Moe Palay is our translater and gives sermonettes.
We are grateful that God has already intervened to save them. Gloria told me she went to the accident scene and it is a miracle they survived the collision and the skidding on the pavement.
We all need the mercy of God. Satan is a roaring lion and it is Passover time.
Thank you for your fervent prayers for intercession and healing.
