Today, after worship, Matthew Hilderbrand shared with the church a little on what it’s like when mission teams visited Thailand & how they impact them.  He also shared how the church family here can continue to pray for us while we are gone….

Here are some thoughts from Pastor Rob this week…

Thailand Team,


I trust you are continuing to prepare your heart for the adventure. Here’s a meaningful and relevant passage of scripture that serves us well to reflect on and remember.

Let’s carry the Apostle Paul’s “go with the flow” attitude, appreciate the culture, find common ground and enjoy building relationships!


Blessings,


Rob


1 Corinthians 9:20-23

20 When I am with the Jews, I become one of them so that I can bring them to Christ. When I am with those who follow the Jewish laws, I do the same, even though I am not subject to the law, so that I can bring them to Christ. 21 When I am with the Gentiles who do not have the Jewish law, I fit in with them as much as I can. In this way, I gain their confidence and bring them to Christ. But I do not discard the law of God; I obey the law of Christ.

22 When I am with those who are oppressed, I share their oppression so that I might bring them to Christ. Yes, I try to find common ground with everyone so that I might bring them to Christ. 23 I do all this to spread the Good News, and in doing so I enjoy its blessings.

NLT
