Praise and Prayer

Praise: Some Christians traveled to a remote island in the Philippines with no Christian inhabitants. They expected to be refused permission to land, and were very surprised to be welcomed. After speaking about basic medical provision, installing a water pump and toilet, and telling some Biblical stories, they rejoiced that thirty people decided to follow Christ. One of the new believers told them "Our children always run away when strangers come, but on the day you arrived, they all ran to welcome you! And do you remember the family which invited you for a meal? They poisoned your food, but none of you died. You did not even become ill! We knew that God must be with you!"
