Two years ago a missionary family visited a city in southern Thailand with hopes of moving there to start a church-planting work. When they drove past a house that was for sale, they called the property owner and asked if she’d be willing to rent to foreigners. She peeked at them out of her window three houses down and decided she would rent to them. Though she’d turned down other offers on the house, she felt that for some reason she needed to rent to this family.
The missionary family moved in and over time developed a relationship with the owner and her son. Recently she shared with them that she had seen a difference in her son’s life since he had started spending time with the church-planting team—so much so that she’d begun questioning her Buddhist faith. She told them she wanted to become a Christian, and on Christmas Day, she put her faith in Christ. When they prayed with her she started crying for joy, knowing God had a plan from that first phone call.
