Road to Redemption

Sometimes the Lord gives us very special gifts in the most unlikely places. Today was one of those days! Our team caravanned into the jungle for three hours before arriving at our destination. As we traveled, our host told us of the beautiful story of the people we were about to meet. The pastor had once been part of the murderous Khmer Rouge regime when he traveled to the village of San Dann. Someone shared with him that it was Christmas time and he sought out a church to find out what Christmas meant. As he heard the redeeming story of God’s love through His Son, he accepted Christ and began sharing His story with everyone he could. Now Pastor Rim has a congregation of dedicated believers who had already been there four hours before we arrived–praying for us. I don’t even need to tell you what a humbling honor it is to be in the presence of these people. Their faces sparkled with the love of Christ and their loving eyes of appreciation penetrated our hearts forever. We wanted to be the ones to bless them, but it always seems to work in reverse. It is more than a privilege to meet those who say so little but impart so much. His mercies are new every morning! Taste and see that the Lord is good!
