Coming back to Singapore was a mixed feelings of both sadness and rejoice!!
Sad because i have seen so much of needs out there in Thailand. SO many ppl living in poverty- both spiritually and physically, crying out for the presence of God to come into their land. I saw people being abandoned by their own children, infected by AIDS & despised by ppl ( all living in real poverty!!!)
When all these needs were placed in front of me, it just overwhelmed me. It pains my heart. My heart was filled with fears for these ppl. i asked myself what happen if they die one day, will there be anyone there to help them in arranging their funeral.
Being overwhelmed by these needs, i cried out to God. Becos i realised there is only so little i cld do for these ppl. Then God spoke to me. "My son, why do u have to cry? though these ppl do not have anything, but they have me. They need me. I am the riches of these ppl. Let the poor say they are rich.. and all u need to do is to be with them. Show them the love of God."
i was so touched by this voice. It was so real and lovely to me. It just encouraged me to press on n keep on praying for these ppl n show them the love of God thru me.
i was more than happy cos for the days in my mission trip, God has been unveiling His glory and love thru me. Lives were touched by Him thru me. i was awed cos God choose to use an unworthy servant like me to unveil His glory thru me.
these were the 3 women that i particularly felt burdened during the trip.
The old lady in the above pict is abandoned by her own daughter. Living alone in a small hut left by her daughter. Her daughter told her unless she take cares of the chickens, she is not allowed to stay in that small hut. Before we left Thailand, she falled sicked and no one was there to take care of her.
There were two another ladies that i am talking abt. They are Mother n Daughter. The mum is unable to see and walk properly. And her daughter is a mute. Their family members alrdy passed on. Both live in a very small hut too. The old lady has to depend on the daughter for living. Due to their disabilites, they were always hit n bullied by kids.
i will always keep them in prayers.
I rejoice becos of the precious lessons that i learnt frm this trip. well, if u want to noe do read the next entry tt i will blogging tml ya..
