We might often hear the phrase that a chance encounter was a divine appointment, as God certainly orchestrates our steps to be in the right places throughout our day.

The Power of Touch

Throughout Jesus’ ministry, He reveals to us the power of touch. He would often touch people on the part that needed healing, like touching the blind man’s eyes or the ear of the high priest’s servant (Matthew 9:27-31; Luke 22:50, 51).

At the University

It was a Friday morning, and I waited to meet with Pii Bee at the nearby university. I had been introduced to this professor through a church member, and Pii Bee and I usually met weekly to practice English conversation. This day she arrived accompanied by a student.

Teaching English in Thailand

This has been an exciting month, as things have moved from mainly planning and praying to getting started with English classes. I could sense God’s providence leading, as prior to this, any class I tried to start got rescheduled.

First Weeks in Thailand

As I headed to Thailand and a whole new situation, I wasn’t sure how much would be expected of me right off the bat. Would I have to buckle down and start working immediately? Push through any jet lag?

Lessons from Training

During this break as I prepare to leave for Thailand, I have had time to reflect back on my experience in training with Adventist Frontier Missions (AFM). There are many aspects that stand out but a few that impacted me most are learning about grit/perseverance, investment, and intentionality.
