Mark 5: 15-17, NET
They came to Jesus and saw the demon-possessed man sitting there, clothed and in his right mind--the one who had the “Legion”--and they were afraid. .... Then they began to beg Jesus to leave their region.

Pray that fear will not stop the So people from embracing the Savior who gives life and freedom.

Breakthroughs Among the So People

by JS

Yesterday we read about the So people who live along the Mekong River in Laos. There are many barriers to reaching them. They are very remote, and their language is mainly an oral one; but that does not stop our Heavenly Father! He can touch lives that others cannot reach.
Remember the story of Jesus healing the demoniac in the Bible? When he was found and bound by chains, he broke them. When Jesus asked him his name, the demon-possessed man replied, “Legion,” because many unclean spirits lived in him. Jesus commanded those demonic spirits to come out of him.
Jesus is still doing the same thing. In 2009 a man roamed the jungles by the Mekong River. He too was possessed by demons. Finally, his neighbors captured and caged him. Like the demoniac in the Bible, this So man was touched, healed, and delivered from demon possession. He was a transformed man. When he told others that Jesus saved him, he was urged to recant, but he replied, “I can’t recant, not even a little bit.” Since that time 17 other families have come to know Jesus, and there are now three churches. It takes a transformed life to witness to others and draw them to Jesus.

Ask God to transform other lives so that their witness draws many to the saving knowledge of Jesus. Pray that transformed lives will overcome cultural barriers.
