One night I had a dream, just a short dream.
I sawmyself riding a brown horse and it was marked with the number 7.
In the morningI told my husband about the dream but he has no idea what it means.
So then I prayedto God, asking what He wants me to do.
There was a choice between building thehouse or going to Australia.
Then I just asked Him for a simple sign, if You want me to build the house,
let someone say "build the house"
and if You want me to go to Australia, let somebody say "go to Australia"
At that time,we had a seminar at the seminary, but just before then,
I went to the pastor’s house and I talked with his wife, a
nd within a minute of talking she started totalk about building the house!
(I didn't tell her anything about my situation) at that time I just thought to myself,
yes I should build the house first because last time we got flooded out in Bangkok a
nd had no house to stayin.
So after that I went to the seminar room at about 10:30 am (we had a break forabout 15 minute).
Then I got a text message from my husband saying that “7means perfect”
and he said a brown horse number 7 wonthe Melbourne cup in Australia.
Then we went shopping for luggage and bought a big suitcase.
Ithas a big pattern of a person riding a horse on the travel bag.
Initially wedidn’t notice this when we bought the bag.
The pattern explained my dream of riding on a horse (meaning travel).
Immediately one seminarian came to me and said "go to Australia".
I can'tbelieve it! Is he joking me? And I laughed out loud,
and I told that man aboutmy idea and today God gave me two answers at the same time.
Then I said tomyself, is it impossible? how can I do both of these at the same time?
so thenI asked one teacher whose seat was close to me: Have you ever asked a sign from God?
and she said, “yes” but hadto wait for a long time for the answer.
Then I told her about my situation, andshe said “everything is possible for God”
and I said Amen!Just a few days afterward,
I called to my mum to help me fill in the land with soil on the property.
Then I went to a seminar in Surin province for just a few days,
but at that time I sent some documents to the Australian embassy to get a Visa.Can you believe it?
3 days later they called me to collect my passport and wegot the visa!
Then I called my mum about filling in the landand she told me everything has been done.
So I thank theLord, and we began to journey to Australia.
While we are checking-in at Thai immigration, the officers took my best chili
(that made mevery sad and upset a lot).
And I thought, can I live without my chili?
Even if I buy it in Australia, it's not the same taste and I complained.
Then when we're arrived in Singapore the immigration staff took out our contact lens solution, mousse wax,
and again it made me angry and I started to complain, andI guess that they'll take out all my things.
And I’m going crazy again when theAustralian immigration took out my Vegetable seeds from New Zealand.
Then wepicked up the wrong parcel and opened a gift that didn’t belong to us.
Oh! everybody was going a bit crazy, but thank you Lord for getting us through it.
When wewent back to the airport, our parcel was still there
and we returned the wrong parcel back to the right owners hallelujah!.
So as can you see, this is the first dayof our journey.
I got a headache and itwas too cold, and you know what?
I used to hate winter, but now I love it because after I gave it a chance, I learned to like it.
To recap, I lost the best chili, contact lens solution, mousse wax,
Vegetable seeds and our parcels containing gifts were swapped.
Everything made me unhappy, but when I kept all of my things in the room
and then I just walked out around the house and saw chili trees all around the house I said Hallelujah!
And it made melaugh. I can buy contact lens solution, mousse wax, vegetable seeds
and everything I need right here in Australia. Thank God! He's good all the timeand all the time He's good.
So I’m very happy, God's cares for small things andeverything that happened was for a reason
and now I really know that God is alwaysgiving me full attention (and you too) thank you God!.
My testimony it’snot finished, before we went to Australia,
we went to the Mall and I saw an Apple Ipad that I really wanted, but had not enough money to buy it,
so I laymy hand on the Ipad in Jesus name and said I will get it.
Just a few weeksafter that we traveled to Australia on 28th of April 2012 and on the4th of May
I got the new I pad apple2 for free from brother Laurence,hallelujah! God is so good Amen.
May God bless you Lorry. You see? I am very excited aboutwhat God has done for us.
But I feel that I’m not worthy. Who I am?
that’s the question on my mind as I am just a smallperson, but God gives me full grace.
God is amazing. You are so beautiful and great is your faithfulness,I adore you.
After that myhusband bought me a SIM card and we got an amazing phone number: 048-777-9-888
it's so beautiful and easy to remember too. God is so good all the time amen.
And after oneweek my mother -in-law took me to visita baby girl in the hospital
that was born just two days ago and she is so cute.
I held the little baby in my arms and looked at the innocent baby
and said tomy daughter “looks at the baby, no evil,
just pure and innocent. Now the babywas born with dislocated hips.
Then I gave her back to her grandmother, and Iasked her
“can I lay on my hand to give a blessing to the little girl?”
she said Yes, so then I lay my hand upon the baby’s head and said “God bless you”
then I felt something hot transfer out of my body and it felt wonderful and Itold all how I felt,
and my mother-in law about the prayer.
Then in the morning my mother in law came to talk to me,
she said "thank you for praying for the baby because the doctor said
she doesn't need to operate on her Hip!”OMG!
A miracle just happened to the baby. Yes, I am very happy about that,
butI'm just a normal person, powerless and weak, so I praise the Lord JesusChrist,
You are the one, He did it; only God can do it. Oh mighty God I praiseyou Lord hallelujah!
About one weekbefore I returned to Thailand we went to visit the baby again.
She was crying alot and nobody could console her,
she kept crying until Aunty Doris gave me the baby to hold and she stop crying right away.
Everyone was surprised to see thatshe stop crying when I held her.
One day while I went to the Catholic Church with my mother in law.
I felt confused so I prayed and here is my prayer: “Here am I; send me” (Isa6:8)
suddenly a women sitting in front of me collapsed. Everyone was shocked, me too.
Because I just prayed to God and now this made me scared because this is the Catholic Church.
I'm waiting to see what happens. Suddenly my mother in law turned to me and shesaid
“Charis you need to pray for her”. Do you know what?
I responded to her,wait and see (as a pretext because I’m shy and don’t dare pray for strangers),
and after awhile mother again said “Charis you needto pray for her” At that time,
I thought to myself that, this is funny. Is God making a joke with me again?
I’m not prepared for this.Igathered all thecourage to step out.
Everyone turned to look at me with question marks.
Iwas speaking to a stranger and praying for the stranger;then a man helped me lift her up.
I prayed in the Thai language, but they might have thought I was praying in tongues or that I’mcrazy.
After my prayer was over I walked back to myseat.
I was feeling excited and nervous as I expected God to do something.
Then the woman vomited something out
and in only a few minutesthe woman recovered and was helped up to her seat.
Thank you, God. Hallelujah. SometimesGod has a humorous mood toward His children.
The reason is to help us to knowHim more and more Amen.
During my journey God provided me with more than enough funds ($1,478)
that came from an old tax return from 1995 that my husband lodged.
While I stayed in Australia after my husband returned back to Thailand,
I didn’t need to draw from ourdebit card in Thailand,
and the refrigerator was alwaysfull with good foods as God provided for us to the upmost.
Thank you Lord, and thanks to my dear mother in law who always cares us,
may the Lord Jesus blessyou mum.
Maybe you’retired from reading my long story, but please take time to continue.
Before I returned back to Thailand I went to Sunnybank for shopping
and then I walked past the jewelry shop and saw a gold cross pendant.
I really wanted it but didn’t dare to buy it because I feel it’s unfair to my husband
who works hard while I just spend money for nothing,
so then I just lay my hand on the gold cross pendant
and in Jesus name I said “I will receive it”. You know whathappen?
Just before I went back to Thailand one week ago my mother inlaw came to me and said to me
“you don’t need to go to the jewelry shop and youdon’t need to buy anything
because someone already bought it for you”.
Just afew days later I went to the jewelry shop and the gold cross pendant was gone.
Then on the last day my dear Dad and Jennybought it for me. May God bless you my dear dad.
It’s amazing for me andeverything is so beautiful, I love You Lord.Thank you, LordJesus.
You gave me a long holiday and wonderful rest, just eating, sleeping,
and looking for the beautiful things that you created, mums fruit garden, it’s so gracious.
I do not understand all that You’ve done for me, but I’ll put all my hope in you,
and in this moment if You are watching over me, then you’ll know what I wish,
even now when I’m feeling sad, pain, and disappointed about my dear daughter.
And I’m confused and don’t know where to start,
but the one thing that I’ll do, it’s always believe and trust in you.
I know that nothing is an accident with God, but everything is possible for Him,
He was in complete control and I believe that it is
Hewho continues to do and accomplish good works in my life.
I won’t rush to do my own works, but wait on the Lord to direct my steps.
Php 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that hewhich hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day ofJesus Christ.
Glory to God for All Things Amen!.
