Monday night again and time for some good old fashioned prayer. Lots of rain this side for the poor Namibians, and cold,yip, cold. Sleeping under blankets is sooooo nice. Looking forward to December when it is really cold,hahaha, not for you guys where you get snow, but for us Asians.
Praise God for a wonderful time in Stung Treng, last week. a Korean pastor and his Khmer friend came along with us as volunteers. This pastor had something similar than Parkinson disease, all twitching and winking and spastic muscles,but he was still planting churches and have a small church. The Khmer pastor was giving Gospel tracts to everyone around. We did the Dental clinic right in front of the Temple. All the monks got a tract. Pulled a lot of teeth, even from the children monks.
The next day we were back in another village, once again in a temple, doing medical. The Khmer pastor was evangelizing everyone, even in the temple. I was amazed at this man's boldness.
Please pray for new Christians in Thnol village where FGC Community Link is busy teaching people. Toinette is helping with the women, whenever she have free time. People are interested and that makes things exciting. Pray for Angela's team to be faithful in their work.
Please pray for an end to the post-election violence in Cambodia. Demonstrations started yesterday and today till tomorrow. Who knows when they will stop. We are safe here in Siem Reap but in Phnom Penh, things are a bit tense. Check this link:
Continue to pray for the guys inside the Banlung prison in Ratanakiri. I leave you with another testimony:In the handicrafts section the tribal guys (who are on good behavior can make some money by weaving baskets. The guards provide the raw materials and help to sell the finished products. Last week they confided that they used to bribe the guards to buy them cases of beer to drown their sorrows. Bing said “I used to be addicted to alcohol. I could think of nothing else but finding the next drink. That was all I had to live for. Since I came to believe in Jesus (in early June), I lost my desire for alcohol. We all stopped drinking (everyone in the cell spoke up in agreement). Now we sing and worship Jesus and he fills us up with his Holy Spirit. We have joy in our hearts and a reason for living. He has lifted the heavy burden from our hearts”. Bing is the same guy who said the Holy Spirit taught him to read. PTL after the baptism, everyone in the handicrafts section (18people) have come to accept Jesus. They are all Tampuen, Kreung, Brao, Jarai and Kachok from villages in Ratanakiri.
Have a wonderful week and may the Lord bless you all
