Frances’ Missions Testimony

When my husband went to Thailand on temporary duty, God began dealing with me about missions. Little did I know that God was also dealing with my husband at the same time. While I was doing my devotions from Romans God spoke to my heart through Romans 10:14, “How shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard…” I was convicted about this and asked myself, “how are people going to know about Jesus if no one will tell them?” I knew the truth while they didn’t. God then brought to my mind Isaiah 6:8, “…I heard the voice of the Lord, saying,


Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.” When my husband came back from Thailand, he shared with me the fact the God had called him to missions. I wanted to deny what was happening and was still unconvinced. Two months later the Lord opened the door and allowed us to visit Thailand. While in Thailand, I asked God to show me if this is what He really wanted for me. He did! While visiting temples, I witnessed children purchasing flowers to place on an idol and then bowing in worship to this false god. God broke my heart for these children and brought back the verses in Romans 10:14 and Isaiah 6:8. I truly realized that I was the one that God wanted to tell them. As I left Thailand I looked around one last time and said in my heart that someday I would be back!
