As I indicated yesterday, Jonathan spent a day at an orphanage in Myanmar with children and young people, teaching them how to study the Bible. Sometimes we wonder how fruitful times like this are and whether the time was well spent. To give you an idea of the response to teaching them, Mary handed Jonathan a “thank you” note. Here is a partial unedited quote from her note:
“Thanks a lot for everything. Especially, you used simple words. So, we understand what you want to share God’s message. We must improve our listening. Thank you.
If you didn’t come to Myanmar (in Tamu at Sophia), I will not get this file (book), or hear good news. Sir Jonathan, I really want to tell you my enjoyments more. I have a new dream after we met. That is to become the best follower of God. Please can you help me by praying to God. Thanks.”
This reminded me of Jesus prayer to the Father in Matthew 11; “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; yes, Father, for such was Your gracious will.” (11:25–26).
Taking in the Word of God is best done by those with ‘child-like’ hearts.
