Was busy with the best therapeutic thing I know, packing meds and listening to good music. Wonder how many thousands of tablets we packed already in this time e are here on the field. Must be an awful lot. So my bags are packed and will need to put 2 bikes on the Beast and we will be off again in the morning. Please pray for us as I first need to drive up to Stung Treng and then on to Ratanakiri. We will be in the village for 2 days and then we will pull a few teeth as well. Pray for all the tribal people that will come so that they can see that we as Christians really care for them.
We have the signs of good rain and had a couple of drops but we still need to big rain to come. Definitely a bit warm here as the weather builds up to the good rain. Almost all the provinces in Cambodia are experiencing problems with water. Unfortunately water will be sold for a lot of money these days and some people makes money that way. Pray for people to have mercy and not just thinking of money in these desperate times.
Had the privilege going out with my friends Samai and Jared and uncle Russel, to a big island in the middle of the Mekong river. We are interested in helping wherever we can. Must say that, with more than 3300 people on the island, only 1 doctor is available. When we reached the bottom side of the island, it was clear to me that these people cannot go to the doctor in times of rain. So we are looking forward going to help them.
Our prayer for Syria this week:
Psalm 36:12 “See how the evildoers lie fallen— thrown down, not able to rise!”
Jesus, thank You that You win! You reign! You prevail! No matter how hard the enemy fights, and no matter how loud the enemy’s voice, with YOU we have victory!
This week I prayed for a Syrian M lady and her teenage daughter. Her husband had become depressed, angry and violent since leaving Syria. As I prayed for the mother, her teenage daughter started crying. She said, “Wow, God really understands our situation.” I was so touched that she was so touched.
Father God, thank You that you are near to this family. Thank You that You are not far as they suppose, but You are soooo close, sooooo loving, sooooo involved. You grieve for what they are going through. Jesus, I pray for the man of this house, as he has lost hope, no work, is angry and depressed. I pray that You would lift his head up and that he would see YOU Lord Jesus! Our hope is in You!!
May this week bless you out of your socks.
