Dear Praying Friends,
We continue to visit supporting churches here in the United States. As I have been speaking in different churches, my desire is to motivate folks to follow Jesus and consider missionary service. Here are some suggestions:
Be Available- Abandon yourself to God and to His call on your life. Tell Him you will go anywhere and do anything that He shows you as His will for you.
Be Informed- Don't hide behind ignorance. Gather all the information you can so you can pray and seek the Lord intelligently. If you know where the needs are, it will be easier for you to meet some of them.
Be Inspired- Watch missionary videos and get hold of some inspiring missionary biographies. You'll find out that most "missionary greats" are just common people who decided to let their love for God and their love for the lost overrule their own desires in life - allowing God to use them in bold and wonderful ways.
Expect An Open Door- Expect God to give you an opportunity to fully serve Him through this new information you are exposing yourself to. Then when He opens the door - walk through it!
Continue to pray for us as we make our preparations to soon return to Thailand. Joy and I will be returning to Thailand for the first time without any of our children. The Lord has greatly blessed during the past 30+ years of ministry and we look forward to many more years of sharing the gospel in Thailand.
Yours for Thailand
David M. Speights
