The following week, Susie arrived for her lesson beaming with excitement. She quickly exclaimed, "The day after we prayed I went to school. After English class, my teacher called me to her desk and opened a drawer. She pulled out the first pair of glasses I had lost!

"That afternoon, the bus driver handed me the new pair of glasses my parents just bought for me! Not only did Jesus help me find my new pair of glasses, He also found my first pair. I know He is the one true God. Please lead me to Him."

We both wept tears of joy as Susie received Jesus as her Savior.

Susie began to experience a hunger for the Word of God. A Bible was purchased for her, and we would spend the first portion of her class working on piano lessons and the last portion learning about God.

Her Buddhist parents would have forbidden her to read the Bible, so she stayed up late at night, reading the Scriptures in bed under her sheets with a flashlight. During this time, the Lord began to give her an intercessory burden for her parents and family members in Thailand, who were trapped in the worship of Buddha.

One day Susie explained a difficult situation to me. Her parents were requiring her to go to the Buddhist temple to pray to Buddha and receive a blessing from the monk. She didn't want to go but was given no choice. We asked the Lord to work mightily on her behalf.

The day arrived for her blessing from the monk. After her parents prayed to Buddha, a monk approached the family for the blessing, but as he reached out to touch Susie's shoulder, he hesitated.

When he attempted to put his hand on her shoulder again, it was as if something hindered him from touching her. He bowed, as if to acknowledge the power within Susie, and then he left.

God performed that miracle. And in doing so, He showed Susie the authority she carried in her measure of rule.
