Updated 9/30/21. Thank you for praying!!
- This past weekend, I was able to go on a 3 day, 2 night camping trip with a group of Cambodians, along with some American friends. Praise God for the cultural experience and the new friendships.
- I'm so thankful for the arrival of Emily, a new worker from the U.S.! I have been missing living in community, plus some friends have left the cuntry. I'm thankful for this new friendship.
- God has provided some great job opportunities for Srey, who had been looking for work but coming up empty. Praise God for the full-time work she has found.
Here are some ways you can pray:
- Please pray for opportunities to care for and share the gospel with Rose.
- Please pray that the Stung Meanchey church leaders would listen to God about his will for their church. The current missionary leaders will be leaving Cambodia in a couple years, so we're beginning the handover process to local leadership. Pray with us for God's guidance.
- Please pray that the non-believing families the church leaders reached out to would open their hearts to Jesus and his gospel.
- Please pray for Srey to grow in intimacy with Jesus, that her full work schedule would not distract her from time with the Lord.
- Please pray that I would grow in my ability to receive God's love and grace. I often hear the Accuser's voice, and listen to him. I want to fight the lies and bask in the truth of the gospel.
*** WHAT I'LL BE DOING IN CAMBODIA***
After serving as a Writer and Editor on the OMF (U.S.) Communications team for 8 years, I'm transitioning to a new position.
This new chapter will take me to Cambodia, where I will serve in a dual role: 1) I will write stories about God’s work to raise awareness for local needs, and 2) I will learn the Khmer language to build relationships and partner with discipleship efforts in the local church.
I've been drawn to Cambodia because of the stories of hope and healing I've heard from Cambodian Christians who suffered through the genocide or have lived with its fallout. The deadly regime brought devastation to every level of society, including the church.
But, despite pain and persecution, God is doing a work in this country. Cambodians who have found Christ testify to miraculous healing and an unimaginable hope. It's a hope that's spreading to their families and, I pray, will continue spreading throughout the entire nation.
I'm here to bear witness to God's love for this people, and to be part of his work in some small way.
If you'd like to learn more about what I'll be doing in Cambodia, I'd love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
