The author of Psalm 107 four times wrote
“Let them give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds for men.” (NIV)
Let me tell you of one of the Lord’s recent “wonderful deeds for men.”
On 14 August Pastor K, one of the leaders of the Advent Christian Conference of Myanmar reported as follows…
“Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Nowadays in our country, there is too much rain in Yangon area and Bagu area. Our brother J is facing difficulties because of the flood around their house and their School area. We need your prayer support for our country. And this is my sincere prayer request for our children. We have four children who are in Middle School. The house now we are renting is a little bit far from their school, there’s no bus, we cannot use ferry. Therefore, we now praying to God to be able to have four bicycle for their school. One bicycle cost Ks.70000/ and for four bicycles, the cost is ks.240000/ and it would be equal with US$300.
Please do remember us in your prayer. I do very much appreciate and thankful for your concern and prayer support. I would like to say thank you to all the donors and all the prayer groups. May the Lord continue to bless you and all the prayer group and all the donors.
Yours sincerely in Christ,
K & family.”
Before I had the opportunity to publish the request, the request touched the heart of someone I discussed it with and they immediately donated the NZ equivalent of US$300 for the bicycles for the four orphans cared for by K and his family. We “happened” to be sending a remittance to the folk in Myanmar the next day – the remittance went through the banking system at record speed and on 23 August – 9 days later – Pastor K wrote, in a message headed “I send you the pictures of Bicycles with all our children!!!!”…
“Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I do very much thankful for your soon reply. And I also would like to say thank you to all the donors who have heart for the lost souls, the orphanage and all the mission work here in Myanmar. Especially we the Salem family really appreciate and thankful for the wonderful blessings through you and through all the donors. I send you the pictures along with this letter. We pray that God bless you and all the donors abundantly in your works.
Yours sincerely in Christ,
Please join in thanking the Lord for His very prompt answer to Pastor K’s prayers, and for using Pastor K and the other ACCM leaders and generous donors to care for so many orphans by providing them with loving homes, food, clothing, education, and, when necessary, bicycles!! God is good!!
