Today I learned how much God can use people in the most hopeless of circumstances.
Our GoMissions team is currently in Cambodia - and for one of their outreaches they visited a remote village where every person there has the HIV virus. This was caused by a well-meaning doctor who used the same needle to give every person shots.
How sad that the very thing intended to help the people - doomed them to sure death. And chances are very high they've never heard about our Lord.
Our Crossroads team held them, hugged them, talked to them and the Asia's Hope leaders gave them everlasting hope in the message they taught. All the people listened intently and were very, very grateful!
Our team took them money for rice, a few clothes and the hope of Jesus Christ. They are praying to turn a death-sentence into a life full of hope found only in our Savior even if HIV makes their time on this earth limited.
Please continue to cover our team in your prayers! It's so amazing to understand that Crossroads gets to share in the lives won for eternity each time we send teams 'out' as Jesus commanded.
Obedience = eternal results
Can't you just see the day when we all gather around the thrown of Jesus to celebrate the ways God used Crossroads people to deliver this precious message?
What a day of rejoicing that will be
When we all see Jesus
We'll sing and shout the victory
