In All Things Pray

Clay & Amy Kreisky
Southeast Asia

Today we're going to pray for two of our missionaries
serving in a country in Southeast Asia that we will
not name. And we are using made-up names for
the missionaries because we don't want them thrown out
of the country or worse because we talked too openly.
Missions is dangerous in many places and this is one of
those. We'll call them Clay and Amy.

Have you ever thought about what people believe before
they believe in Jesus? In much of Asia, they believe in
spirits. They believe spirits are evil and are always trying
to hurt people. Where our missionaries serve, that's the
way most people are.

A man we'll call Ketoot was a welder by trade. He was
scared to death of spirits. He made offerings and prayed
to the spirits, fearing they would hurt him. When Clay
and Amy told this man God loves him, has a plan for his
life and sent Jesus to die for him, Ketoot was interested.
As a test, he quit giving the spirits offerings - and
nothing happened. He became a follower of Jesus Christ.
His fear went away. A year later, his wife was saved.

Some of our church's Cooperative Program dollars find
their way to Clay and Amy all the way over in Southeast
Asia. So we rejoice with them when we hear victory
stories like this.

Let's ask God to bless them and their ministry and let's
ask God that thousands and thousands of people will
turn from evil spirits to the one true God of love!
