Working with Thai children who, through no fault of their own, have no documentation and therefore no identity and therefore no access to government services.

Your perspective on life

  • If you get this wrong, you’re in for a big tailspin

  2. We need pruning!
    1. God wants to make changes
    2. What is God changing in me right now? (If nothing, then am I in His will currently?)
  3. “Remain in me!”
    1. It is possible to not follow Him.
    2. You need to allow yourself to be changed by Him, else you are a useless branch.
  4. We bear fruit!
    1. He gives us that benefit.
    2. We look good, if we remain in Him.

    2. The 2 Commandments
      1. Love God with all your mind, soul & strength
      2. Love others as yourself.
  6. Joy!
    1. A promise for obedience
    2. Bitterness is a result of unmet expectations
  7. Love God & others
    1. Allow ourselves to be loved by God!
    2. We are adopted into His family.

Joy, love & a hard time.
