During this trip, I was more intentional about outreach.
The reason why? Studying at bible college has made me more aware of the need to share my faith with others. As Paul says in Romans 10:14, “But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?”
We witness with our lives but we still need to share the good news with nonbelievers.
Thus, this trip, I took the time to have spiritual conversations about Jesus with Mr Vichea and Mr Pagna.
With Mr Pagna, I shared with him Mark 1:21-34. I wanted to show him that Jesus is greater than spirits, and he had power to heal. Mr Pagna has health issues and believes in animal spirits. Thus, I felt the Holy Spirit guiding me to tell him about Jesus’ power. I am praying that Mr Pagna continues to remain open to learning about the Bible and Jesus.
With Mr Vichea, we spoke about family pressures and the dominant religion in Cambodia being Buddhism. Thus, it is very hard for him to open up to his family about wanting to learn more about Christianity and even becoming a Christian. I am praying for him as he continues to learn more about Jesus and come to a decision for himself about his beliefs.
I am aware that what I am doing is just sowing seeds. However, we never know when these seeds will grow! Thus, I am urging you to be intentional in sowing seeds around you. People need to hear the good news presented to them!
