Our memory verse is Matthew 1:23 –
“See, the Virgin will become pregnant, And give birth to a son, And they will call Him Immanuel, which is translated, ‘God with us.’”
Today, would you pray for the community of Baan Po, Thailand?
Doug Derbyshire is a medical missionary in Thailand that routinely goes to places in Thailand where there are no Christians, but finding no Gospel witness during a trip to Baan Po troubled him the most.
For six years, he would visit Baan Po and bring medical teams from the U.S. to host mobile clinics and tried every evangelism technique that he knew, including knocking on countless doors. In January of this year, he pulled together another medical team to take the Gospel there. He would sit down with patients to meet with them and a Thai Christian on his staff would sit down with the patient and say… “This is medicine for your body. Now let’s talk about what you need for your soul.” On the first day, three people made decisions of faith, and Baan Po is now growing with a Gospel presence.
Wow! Christmas reminds us that when Jesus was born of a virgin God does the impossible.
