.... it works 2024

Someone has been there, but now the Cross is empty and the grave is empty. The darkness and death could not keep Jesus. He opened a new and living way for us. It works.

We try hard to educate ourselves so we can be strong and successful. We try to understand and handle all.                                                                          


But still, we can not make it all. Life is full of matters we can not understand. Exodus 14 has spoken to me.

Go out of Egypt. And the People of Israel tried. But on the way they had big problem. They cried out to God for HELP.

Moses dared to stand up and say: “Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will work for you today...."  "The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.”    Wooow

The Egyptians.... came into panic. And they said: “Let us flee from before Israel, for the Lord fights for them against the Egyptians.”

And they had victory.

Today we can try to make good theology of God`s mighty hand in the past, and stop there. No. God is also today the same today.   
   1. God id working. 
   2. And people will see that God is fighting for us.

Have a blessed Easter with doing what you can do and give God space to do what only he can do. 

Easter greetings from Ingvar (Fred)

Outcome Mapping & Harvesting.

It was a great joy last week to have our daughter Mariam here in Ubon for a 4 days Outcome Harvesting & Mapping seminar. Ubon-Pakse is a very good place to be: 

The aim we have is to provide meeting places in the community. People can come in even if they feel that they have failed and are not good enough, And be encouraged to go out and do what they can do. We work on multiplications and movements among the people.   

Thank you Mariam. You encourage us all. 

Greetings from Daddy

PS. Today I will start my journey Ubon-Bangkok-Dubai-Copenhagen-Gothenburg- Bleket. Look forward to meet you all between 19th mar-31st July.

Happy to share the Living HOPE

As Ajarn Boy has been away for a Seminar, I have been sharing both on Friday and yesterday. To prepare a sermon is exciting and refreshing. It is like heaven is open and a river of Life flowing:
1. The Word of God (Logos) is becoming LIVING. 
2. God is speaking personally to us. His Rhema. 
3. We share the living witness (Matyrio) what God is done.

And on Friday evening the word was; We have a hiding place in Jesus so .... we do not need to hide.

Sunday the subject was; Tune-up with the Living Hope. Yes Jesus became flesh, lived among us and people saw the Kingdom of God. Jesus among us is Living HOPE for us right here today. The word is 100% working.

In Asia we have many religions, giving many demands how to please the Spirits. But all good works (Merit-making) is never enough. Only in Jesus we become accepted and God's Children. 

Corrie ten Boom served people in need. Many Jews had nowhere to go to find shelter. We have here also people who need somewhere to have a temporary shelter. First, they GIVE UP but when JESUS is touching them they find restoration and LIVING hope. Also equipped to help others. 

Have a good week, helping many who are rootless and need God`s agape-love so they can come back on their feet again.

Learning Loop with our daughter Mariam will have a workshop in Ubon this week. Happy to have her here 4 days.

Build trust....

 ... takes time. especially among people who have been manipulated and lured by family members or close friends to stop going to school and to smuggle drugs, sell sex or do other illegal involvements. 

Childen's Mission, Child Safe and Streams of Grace Church are cooperating in the project called "Left Behind...." and other specific tasks to help children/teens to be free from slavery. Together we can do more. 

This also includes the children/teens in the Juvenile Detention Centre. (Under 18 years old) 

  1. Help them in the Prison with baking, singing and counseling.  
  2. Help them to come back into the community.
They are so happy every time (2 times a month) a team of 5-6 people goes to them. They ask us to come more and go to all the sections in Ubon.

Have a blessed week.

Greetings from Ubon, Ingvar (Fred)
