The Old Old Story

 "Thank you for telling me!" she said over and over. 

Where she lives, in northern Thailand at the foot of the mountains, someone had once brought a movie about Jesus. 
She watched it many years ago, and believed that this Man really did die on a cross, and she thought that it had something to do with the sin in her life, but she wasn't sure how.
"I didn't know what to do next," she said. 
And there was no one to tell her. 

I don't know where in the world you're reading this from right now, but chances are, you're in a place where all of your neighbors have heard about God's Son carrying a cross. 
Did you know that 2.9 billion of the people on the planet have never heard about God's Son carrying a cross?
There are. 
If you're someone who believes that God's Son really did carry a cross, then you are commanded to tell the 2.9 billion.

Three days ago that number went down by 5. 
Life Impact sent a team to this village at the foot of the mountains and we told the old old story of God's great Love for man. This lady's questions were answered, and she most definitely wanted to invite God's Son to take over her life. 
We told her about His forgiveness, we told her about His righteousness, we told her about His Love. 

"Thank you for telling me!"

How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
-Romans 10:14
