being affected by the effects of…

Tonight, while walking in Chiang Mai, we passed by a particular section of the street and I noticed many people were coughing. As we continued walking, more and more people were coughing – practically everyone. I knew it wasn’t serious – I could tell that somebody was cooking/frying/doing something to some chili peppers… We too joined in the coughing, and the smiling and laughing at effects of the chili peppers.

A bit further down we encountered a small group of believers who were singing praise and worship songs in Thai (I assume). The joy with which they were singing about Jesus, and that was provided by Jesus, was contagious. I don’t know how the Thai people around us were responding to them, but I pray that they too were affected by the Holy Spirit in that place.
