Bitten By a Snake and Four New Baptisms

Newsletter from Tore and his family working in
Northern Thailand among the Shan people from Myanmar

Here is a newsletter from a hotter and wetter parts of the world. It has rained more than normal during the rainy season this year, and there have been floods in several places, but it should be the end of the rainy season in the beginning of next month, and we hope it will rain less soon.

A lot has happened since I returned to Thailand in end of August, and it has been a busy time. It has taken me over a week to write this newsletter.

In this newsletter you can read about: Four baptisms and more have become Christians again, a constant growth in the ministry and about a poisonous snake.

I had a very good time in Norway in August and I want to say a some about in this newsletter as well.

When is God Pleased?

When is God pleased and satisfied with us? Many Christians struggle with this question.

I had a quiz on my website for a while back, and one of the questions I had was: When do we please God? I was amazed how many people wrote: It is when I pray, don’t do any sins, sing worship songs, do evangelism, lead someone to Jesus and so on.

The focus was on what we need to do, but what is it that really satisfies God?

I have good news for you today, your worth is not connected to what we do, but who we are (read also more text under!).

What does God require?

What does God require? Or what does he desire most of all?
Is it our nice works or behavior? Is it our devotion to him or how much we pray?

My question is this: Do we live under the law or grace? If we live under grace what is the requirement? Get the answer in this message!

Be Still

Psalms 46:10
10 Be still, and know that I am God;

In this world it is easy to be stressed out. It can be all from work, circumstances, family, bad report when it comes to sickness or even when it comes to know our identity.

As a believer in a mighty God, we should not give into this stress, but the reality is that we are not so much different from people in this world. We still let this things get to us and even control us.
And you are not alone, and sometimes I ask why?
We have an answer that this world dose not have, and a hope and a power that are beyond our circumstances. So why do we worry? Often it is actually because we feel we not please God enough, so he might not hear our prayers. And that brings us back to identity too.

The truth is or soul can be still and know that He truly is God.

They Lost Everything In The Flash Flood

Newsletter from Tore and his family working in
Northern Thailand among the Shan people from Myanmar

We are in a busy time right now. We have visits from a DTS team from Canada, and we also have been giving out Covid-19 relief as food to many families and individuals affected by the Covid-19 situation, which is virtually most of the people we are reaching out to.
The Covid-19 situation has worsened here in the north recently, but vaccinations are in progress. 

Last week we also visited four families who lost everything in a flood.

Love Keeps No Record of Wrongs

We have probably all heard that God is love (1Joh 4:8), but what does that really mean? 

Some believe that God only has love, it’s only one of his attributes, and he will show it to us when we deserved it or when we have behaved good.

Some believe he only loves me and will hear my prayer when I have repented from all of the sins I have done. Some may even think: All sins I have done since I was a child and I also need to know exactly what I did.  
So they search and search their past and life to discover what they have done wrong, but that is not what God wants you to do. It is about how much you are forgiven and loved, not how much you have sinned.

There are a lot of people who are not very confident in their prayer, fellowship and communication with him, because they believe that God keeps a record of wrongs.

God Is at Work In a Challenging Time

Newsletter from Tore and his family working in
Northern Thailand among the Shan people from Myanmar

It is the end of the rainy season here in northern Thailand, and the “cold” season will soon begin, with temperatures below “20 degrees” Celsius at night.

In the last three months, we haven’t done much external activity in the ministry because of increase in Covid-19 cases in Thailand. At the beginning of August, it peaked at around 23k people who got Covid-19 per day, but now it is down to 11k, some days, so it is on the right track.

Our ministry during these three months has not stopped up because of this. We have not been able to do some things, but we have had a lot of contact with people through Messenger, Facebook and telephone, and we pray for people almost every day.

There are many who are hungry for the Good News now. We have several who wants to receive Jesus, and we have also experienced people who have been healed trough prayer, but we have also experienced some challenges especially in connection with the Covid-19 situation.

What is it All About

Have you ever asked yourself this question: What is it all about?
It may be in several contexts we can ask ourselves this question, perhaps in relation to the meaning of life, but have you ever asked this question in relation to your faith and Christian life? Maybe you’re a bit scared of this question, because it may be associated with unbelief.
Sometimes it can be healthy to ask yourself some questions, and remember God does not get nervous because of it.

Don’t Worry About Anything

Today I believe that God has something very special and something new he want to speak to you about through this scripture: Phi 4:4-7.
Do not think that you’ve heard this before and you do not need to hear it again!
I think everyone has experienced and maybe you experiencing it right now, that you have or are worried. It can be anything from money to situations that you have at work.

Whatever circumstances you are facing, you can have a peace that surpasses all the understanding.

Before I was afraid that when I had a bad day, it was because God did not protect me, or maybe it was even He who made negative things happened and he was angry at me some how. He sent a curse because I forgot to pray or read in the Bible today, or maybe I did a sin? This is not so!

You will certainly deal with a bad day better if you have a attitude of gratitude and thankfulness, and by using time with God by praising Him, and having fellowship with him in prayer

But most days that are difficult is so because we are not living in an perfect world and we have a spiritual evil enemy too.
It has nothing to do with God punishing you in one way or another.

There was one who said, “It’s not what meets you in life that will break you, but how you handle it.” If you have an attitude of gratitude and thankfulness, and believe God is really good under all circumstances, you will handle life much better!

Do We Need More of God?

I have heard many say that we need more of God or Jesus, but do we need more of Him?
Does the Bible says that we must hunger and thirst for more and that we do not have anything of Him yet.
Do we need more power, more forgiveness, more of His nature, or more blessing from God?

My answer might surprise you?
