It is amazing what God can do if we have a willing heart to follow Him anywhere. Gene Wray has this heart. Gene was a local lawbreaking citizen when God got a hold of his heart and took his hard heart and molded it into a heart for Jesus.
Gene went from living for himself to living for Jesus and decided he would follow Jesus wherever He led. Vietnam was Gene's stop. Gene has been in Vietnam for several years. Gene and his wife Hong have been preaching and teaching Jesus in Vietnam in what we call The Lambs Chapel Vietnam Campus.
Over the past few years the idea of church has changed for Gene and Hong. After the police shut their church down, they started carrying the gospel throughout the villages and jungles on foot. They have helped countless people with food, clothing, and physical needs. They visit the jails and offer juice and share the good news of Jesus. They also work with those that live along the flooding plains near the river by helping them rebuild their homes. As they rebuild homes they also start the rebuilding process of their spiritual lives as well. Gene also teaches English to all ages of children and weaves the Gospel in as he teaches.
It is not uncommon to get a call from Gene late in the evening or early morning to ask a question or to make us aware of something we need to pray for. Gene and Hong are growing in their faith and God is changing countless lives through all they do. Gene describes it as abnormal, but what can we say, everything I read in Scripture was abnormal.
Pray for their ministry to continue to grow as they build and rebuild homes and lives.
Pray God would open up the opportunity for the church to be opened back up so that others can be discipled and can hear the gospel.
Pray for Gene, Hong, and John's health and for them to have strength and endurance to finish the race that is set before them.
Pray that Gene, Hong, and John would find favor with everyone they meet, and that God would establish the work of their hands. (Psalm 90:17)
