In a closed country in Southeast Asia, Christians cannot openly share the Gospel. Instead, believers’ lifestyles lead to questions about the God they serve.
“God has given us principles [for] how we are to live our lives, and this should be in every aspect of our life,” says Caleb*, a believer partnering with FARMS International.
“When [we] run our businesses according to God’s plan, or according to the principles that God has taught us, then we can live [as] an example to those around us.”
For example, “a lot of people work seven days a week, and they end up exhausted, worn out,” Caleb says.
“They see the believers that work five, six days a week and take a Sabbath to rest. Then they ask, ‘Why are you making the same amount of money when you’re not working as much?’” he continues.
“That opens the door for saying, ‘God has taught us to take a day off to rest and be in His presence. And God blesses that when we are obedient to Him.’”
