Mini-Post: Michelle’s Comment

Michelle Brock gave a wonderful illustration regarding yesterdays post. I wanted to highlight this for you. Thanks for responding Michelle.

One of the treasures I own is a
platter my mom brought back from Thailand just after the Tsunami
several years back. She found it on the beach in perfect condition,
yards away from where many people lost their lives in a resort.

The missionaries in this area found many people willing to hear about God, because of this tragedy.

Your post reminded me of one of the stories that the missionaries
told of the Christians in a particular village who had been persecuted.
They requested permission to celebrate Christmas in the village, and
were told no. They were required to leave the village if they wanted to
do so, which they did. In this way, they were gone when their village
was completely wiped out by the tsunami. These Thai Christians were now
sought after by the people in the surrounding villages who had
survived, who wanted to know more of their powerful God.

Perhaps this would be a good time to bring out the plate again. Thanks for the thought-provoking post.
