MESSAGE FROM THE KLIEWERS
God has been so good to Mary and I over the last 17 years here in Thailand.
Our focus has always been to reach the non-churched people. Business is where most of us spend the majority of our day. So it is a good way to get to know your workers, to train them and the disciplines of life then allow you to share their lives in a very real way. They get married, have children, parents pass away, they get killed in tragic accidents, they die from serious health issues, and yes some of them get fired. So it is a very “real life” situation. We pray for them and look for the right time to be able to share deeper things with them.
God is working in different hearts. We think of this factory as our congregation, and would ask you to join with us in praying that God will show them the difference between true Christianity and Buddhism. It really does take the conviction of the Holy Spirit to bring a true change of heart.
This is our one prayer and greatest need. We have people who have been with us for a long time, and they have seen God at work. We continue to pray that they will come to a true trust and faith in our risen Savior. Please pray with us, as there is great need in Thailand.
In closing I would add that Mary’s father passed away on January 5 at the age of 90. It was something that we knew was coming even though he was in pretty good health right to the end. Her parents were missionaries in Taiwan for most of their lives before returning to the States and settling in Minneapolis. Her mother passed away in March of 2012. Although these times are always a bit sad, we are rejoicing that they are now safely in Jesus’ arms. We are learning how to joyfully lift our eyes upwards, and to look forward to the coming day when it will be our turn. The days and years are passing, aren’t they? We are reminded that this world was never meant to be our home.
