Day 3 (Sunday)
Travel to Hope Chiang Kham Sanctuary (5 mins drive from Pastor’s house)
Rehearse our skit
We had put together a loving mime entitled, “hands”. It is a mime about share about Jesus’ love. We had practiced quite a bit b4 coming. Jesus was none others than Steve…. Our Thai friends wondered why we had a very smiley Jesus indeed… who smiled while being “crucified”!haha Steve!
Had a short breakfast
All kinds of Kuehs displayed plus soy bean milk.
Joined the Sunday church prayer meeting followed by another breakfast
Pastor Chiang Khumwas worshipping enthusiastically. He smiled a lot and was really full of joy. He shared enthusiastically at the prayer meeting! Again, every thing was impromptu – our team were asked if anyone would share a testimony on the spot? My shy team members looked down.. Though I am shy too, as team leader, I have to show the example hence I took the chance to thank the Church and Ps Ben for encouraging us. Grace encouraged the church with her short testimony of how God blessed her when she gave to building funds.
Actual church service started
The church service started… on our right were a row of high school students. The new believer who sells the soy bean was here with his whole family. He had 2 tall and handsome sons whom we did not see yesterday. It’s a joy to see his whole family attending church early morning
Oh boy, the whole church was in heaven… we saw those we met on the stage who were playing for the church. Ps Ben, Pastor of Chiang Khum, the worship leader (a very cheerful brother too whom accompanied us yesterday in some visits) and 2 back up singers. They sang and danced with their might, there is just this sincere simple joy exuberating from the church! God be exalted! I saw the human “tutu” train formed by the high school students,… a rare sight indeed. They were running around the sanctuary, We used to do that in Hope Spore a few years ago,,, Hope BKK also… Now guess it is great to see people worshipping God with “tutu” train jog. Team mates all agreed that we ought to learn to worship God freely and joyfully like Hope Chiang Khum.
Had lunch with the church people and presented our token of appreciation to Hope Chiang Kham (love offerings)
Went to the land bought by Hope Chiang Kham… which a new sanctuary will be built (cost about S$40,000), Steve was great… he helped to lead the team. We walked around that piece of wasted land, praying that it will no longer be wasted again but bless many lives when the church is built there. Steve gathered us back and led in a closing prayers. It reminded us we prayed for Nexus too and wrote our pre-believing friends’ name on the cement before the renovation work. At this point we bid farewell to Ju and Pom, our translators.
Next Lap - drive towards
Winding and steep roads through the mountains. Ps Ben, we saluted you for driving us over the tedious terrain. Just the changing of vehicle gear over different gradient could drive people crazy.. at every bend, Ps Ben would carefully slow down his vehicle.
We enjoyed singing throughout the whole journey … sorry not we but the sisters.
Arrive at house of pastor of Hope Paklang in Pua district. Meet Pastor Tut and Kate (our next interpretor)
Met Ps Tut for the first time and our to-be-translator for the next 2 days, Kate. Surprised – Ps Tut is 29 yrs old and he is already pastoring a church (with few centres). Mark and Steve thought. “what were I doing when I was 29?” and Jun Ming said “pressure pressure….”
Pastor from Paklang is the leader over another Hmong village.
Had dinner with Paklang Pastor, Pastor Tut and Kate
They had some nice longgans planted themselves,,, bigger than what you could get in Spore, of course, freshly plucked and fresh. Pastor Tut and Kate were staying overnight with us in Pastor Paklang’s house. We had a great challenge… the family has only 1 bathroom and the whole family were queuing up to use the bathroom. Felt bad again that the host family has to wait long to use the bathroom.
Special Evening Meeting with
Pastor from Paklang had specially arranged a session for us to meet the church people all form the village. We busied ourselves preparing to lead praise and worship and share testimonies. Another surprises, people starting coming and they were least of what we expected…. Housewives (mostly)n and husband coming with their kids. They were all Hmong hilltribes who has settled own in Paklang village for a long time. We were worried if our praise and worship would minister to them… were our songs too “pop” for them? Not too usual condition for a praise and worship session I thot….. with noise from kids and lots of fidgeting as well as a lazy dog that strolled across the hall as when it felt like it. Funny huh… we felt inadequate to lead this session. Thank God,
That was followed by an extended prayer time for the church and the people. People rised up to be prayed by us… even praying I n proxy for the people. I was burdened to pray for the kids and the children’s ministry in Hope Paklang… so many children here and they need God. Towards the end, I was prompted to pray for a girl who has a swollen right eyes. This to me sounds like what Jesus was doing isn’t it? Sharing and praying for many people who came forward to him! Wonderful God, for you to teach me this!
Rest at Pastor Paklang house with joy (most of us din bathed)
