Jn. 9:27, NET
He answered, “I told you already and you didn’t listen. Why do you want to hear it again? You people don’t want to become his disciples too, do you?”

Pray that those healed by the Lord will have the boldness to stand up for Jesus like the man born blind did.

Tai Lue Breakthroughs

by JS

Working with the Tai Lue people is a slow process, but God has provided an opportunity. Many of them suffer from physical, mental, and even demonically caused illnesses. One missionary, Amy (not her real name), has been witnessing to “Auntie Andrea” who suffers from glaucoma. Auntie Andrea complained that she felt hopeless about her failing eyesight. Amy told her the Bible story of Jesus and the man who was blind from birth. Amy then asked her if she would like prayer for her eyes. She said, “yes.” Startled after the prayer, she said, “I can see the mountains now that I could not see before!” Amy prayed for her eyes two more times, and each time her vision improved. Auntie Andrea then asked Amy, “Does this mean I have to follow Jesus?” Amy told her no, but added that Jesus did love her and wanted her to know him.
This kind of opportunity and response has been repeated several times with Tai Lue villagers suffering from demon possession, addiction, and depression, as well as other illnesses. Amy faithfully shares Bible stories with all of them and gives them tapes to listen to. Even though the Tai Lue are touched by Jesus, forsaking all other gods is a very difficult decision for them to make.

Pray for Amy and other workers who are ministering as Jesus did, praying for healing, praying for deliverance, and faithfully discipling them in God’s love. Pray that the Tai Lue will be convicted and convinced of God’s love for them.
