I just love Cambodian holidays. Get time to do the things that I normally cannot do. I did a lot of woodwork and cleaned the yard, but wind and rain is not a friend when you try to keep your yard clean. Its rainy season now, not that it ever stopped this year. Feels like it’s raining just harder and more water on top of more water. Please pray as flooding will definitely a problem in some areas. I am off to Kampong tom tomorrow and make myself ready for a real muddy bike-ride into the bush. It will only be John and I. Please pray for a meeting that I will have with the police in order to get a paper signed to do more outreaches in the area. It’s a bit tricky these days but we can jump high through a couple of loopholes in order to do our work. While I am writing to you, I have a nasty flu but am on so many drugs that it cannot last. Tomorrow, I am just driving the truck, so that will be easy. Please pray for protection on the road.
Toinette and the team of FGC Cambodia Link is very busy preparing for a seminar that they will conduct for 2 weeks on “ No Apologies”. It is all about healthy relationships, the influence of media, premarital sex and the consequences. Pray for the teachers as well as the students. That the students will be open and able to understand the importance of a pure lifestyle. We have a very busy time ahead till Christmas, many teams and lots of work. Please pray for all the staff to somehow find some rest in between all this.
Please continue to pray for Fe. She writes:
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” – Elizabeth Kubler Ross
Something good to read that you can pray about. It is a real problem here and the people need a lot of help.
Chained up, out of sight: Desperate families often keep mentally ill relatives in squalid conditions.
This is a real short prayer letter. Thank you once again for praying for us.
