An Unexpected Blessing

By Ed and Sue Danneker, serving in Thailand

Our church’s next-door neighbor, Nee, has been on the hearts of all of our church members for the last year. The small restaurant she owns is right next to our building, and she has warmly welcomed the congregation. One evening last month, Nee was ready—she prayed to receive Christ as her Savior.

Probably everyone in the church had witnessed to Nee at some point in time. But it was Noi Na’s consistent testimony and friendship over the past year that helped Nee feel free to explore Christianity and ask many questions about the Lord.

A Bold Request

Nee grew up in poverty and was unable to complete school beyond second grade. Then she helped her relatives with their food stalls and small shops until she married and had her own family. She always told us she could not read. After she became a Christian, her first prayer request was that she would be able to read and understand the Bible. And God answered!

Nee went home that evening with her new Bible, opened it up, and was amazed that she could actually read it. She told us the next day that she had never been able to read before. She had often tried reading other things over the years, but the words made no sense. Now, she is eagerly studying the Bible with Sue and wants to read everything herself.

It is amazing to see Nee read better each day and understand what she reads. Because Nee doesn’t write, Sue fills in the discipleship book for Nee so she can review the lessons later.
