You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary. Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love. Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first.
May we remember that complacency is not intentional; it's where we all end up unless we do something about it.
- Praying for how to use my time here well. I'm involved in many ministries and such, but I don't know where to really invest. Longing to make some deeper impact somewhere...
- God is doing an awesome work at my church here, Evangelical Church of Bangkok. Our new pastor just arrived last week and I really sense a renewed energy and passion in the congregation -- so stinkin' exciting! Praise God! Oh and guess what I realized?? With the time change, I go to church in Bangkok at the same time my church back home is having their service (Calvary's Saturday night service). It's like, across the miles, we are still worshiping our God together. Crazy cool.
- Our school raised thousands of dollars for Haiti, and we're still praying for how to be a part of what God's doing over there -- as well as how to meet the needs of those all around us here. Maybe you're praying the same thing wherever you are.
- Looks like I get the phenomenal joy of traveling to Nepal with some friends this April!! We're going to do a week-long trek, admiring God's beautiful creation...namely, the Himalayas! :D
