THANK YOU Jakob and Oth

We have had since 2016 several very good Interns. And as we are all a learning Community ... we all fit into the picture. 1 April 2022 Jakob (Laos) and Oth Thailand came from the Bible school in Prachuab. They have been a great blessing for all we do in the Church and all we do in Child Safe. Thank you Children's Mission (Malmö) for your participation in this. 

THANK YOU for all you have done .... these 10½ months. 
0% problems. 100% Blessings.
You have been 100% willing to serve wholeheartedly.

Yesterday they went back to Prachuap for Graduation and after that they will be one-month on holiday with their families and .... Praise God after that God is calling them back to Ubon. 
Welcome back in March-April 2023 to work one more year with us.

Problems and Testings

We are these days afraid of Problems and Testings. Social Media (Facebook +++) these days speaks: Everyone is only happy. Because none put out hard and difficult things. We think that due to good education +++ we can avoid problems. We think we have oun-made power to lead our own life in a good way. When COVID -19 come Feb 2020 many disappeared into hiding. No we need Gods Power.

Problems and testings is part of our growth. When we pass through tests.... we will learn and come into new levels.  God`s Power will be visible, 

We all like to pray that God will help us ... so we can avoid Problems. But in life problems are coming and we need to pray that JESUS will strengthen us in the problems.

Sometimes in problem we might think;        I will not survive. I will die here

Or at best I will come through:                     I will come back to the same level.

No God has strength for us so:                    I will come through stronger. 

God bless so we will not hide. Not flee from them but face them with JESUS. Even if it takes some time.

In Nov-dec 2022 I felt very weak and had back pain. It was terrible and I felt the problems like darkness. Had problems to sleep at night. Time went very very slow. I use to be active and time goes fast. But now .... I felt down. 

In Jan 2023 I went to a doctor in Bangkok and after he saw my MRI x-ray he was positive. And I feel God said: Do not give up. As long as you live. 

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

When we fail our tests we feel ashamed and like to hide. But ..... that is not the answer, When we fail, let's help each other. We have all failed. 

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.        James 1:3-4

God bless you in the difficulties. Serve people and God even in Problems.
