Thought it was about time to catch up with Pei Yee. She just got back from Appalachia in Tennessee where she helped lead adults and high school students on a missions trip there. She’s gearing up now to head to Africa. Please pray for her!
As I was looking back at the past 2 years, I saw how God took me out of Malaysia to go on the World Race, which was the start of an explosive journey with God.
On the Race, my idea of who God is and who I am was completely redefined. I began to see how personal God is – that He speaks through the day-to-day little things and I can hear His Voice; I started to understand who I am in Christ – His precious daughter, a princess in His Kingdom, somebody who is given authority in Jesus’ name. I began to learn to see people for who God made them to be, that He loves EVERY single person, and that I am to love them too (sounds so cliche but it’s one of the hardest thing to do).
My heart was broken for an African kid, challenged by a Cambodian young man, encouraged by the countless testimonies I heard and saw along the way.
As if this was not enough, God then challenged me to build up my faith by going on the Dream Tour. Even though we started with only a full tank of gas and $200, we came home with more than that after 40 days. Incredible? Not at all, for our God is a God who says “Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow…But if God so clothes the grass of the field…will He not much more clothe you…” (Mt 6:30).
Then God provided another opportunity to grow in a deeper understanding of the Holy Spirit and His works in Ecuador. That was when I experienced a man being healed right before my very eyes after praying for him.
Appalachia, Tennessee was then a very growing trip in terms of leadership and administrative skills. Preparing, teaching, leading 65 people of all ages from different denominations for 2 weeks was no easy task. But God showed me that He was able to move people’s hearts faster than I ever imagined, that it really is “my message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power.” (1 Corin 2:4).
This coming September God has called me to attend Iris Ministries’ Harvest School of Missions. It is a Spirit-filled and Spirit-led, hands-on, in the dirt, evangelistic missions training school, set in the Village of Joy in Pemba, Mozambique. Iris’ vision is “CALLED TO LOVE”. It costs everything. It’s passion and compassion. Extravagant love that gives without expecting back. A laid down life. A love that looks like something practical.
Pei Yee needs your help. She needs to raise $8,850 to make this happen. Her dream is to reach the lost youth in the 10/40 window. That’s the areas of the world who have the highest numbers of lost people. She wants to bring the love and truth of Jesus to them. This school will help train her with practical ways of making that happen. Please prayerfully support Pei Yee in launching her dream.
