Some of you may remember me mentioning my Thai friend, Mr. Oh. We have been studying the Bible together for many months. Oh has been a great encouragement to me. He has suffered with debilitating diabetes for several years and it has taken a serious toll on his health. Because of the diabetes he is completely blind and has to endure dialysis three times a week.
In spite of these serious health issues, Oh is a faithful follower of Jesus. I am often amazed when he talks about all of the ways that God has greatly blessed him. He realizes that his physical health is nothing compared to his relationship with Jesus
I recently heard that Oh had his foot amputated. It breaks my heart that I can not be there right now to encourage him in the Lord. I would like to ask that you pray for Oh. His family who he lives with takes care of him and treats him well. But they are Buddhist and have expressed little interest in Christ. Oh often prays for them that they would come to know Jesus. Please pray that the Lord will use Oh's consistent witness to bring his family to Christ.
In spite of life's difficulties, those who know Jesus can trust in Him. I praise the Lord for our family and friends in America & Thailand. And I am thankful that I can commit them to the Lord's care. Thank you for your continued prayers for the people of Thailand.
