This last week, the 2nd, we celebrated 22 years of marriage. Quite day here with us but we could take the boys for a meal at least. On this Wednesday the 7th Sept we will celebrate Anton’s , 11th birthday. Man time is flying past us and the boys are growing up so fast.
I will be going to Ratanakiri for an outreach to a very remote area with my friend James this Thursday and be back on Monday again. Need to go by taxi and then by bike. Cannot wait for my car to be fixed anymore and need to move on. Pray for safe traveling and open hearts when we get to the villages. Not sure if I need to buy a new car or not, so much $$$$. Please pray with us as we seek God on this issue. Found some good 2nd hand cars but the prizes are very high and money low hahahaha.
We had an excellent time at the baptism of 16 people. Mostly students from the Acts program but also members of the church. We went to the Baray lake and had some fun. Great to see the children happy and in love with the Lord. God is really working in their hearts. Pray for these students as they now need to be light in their villages.
They also organized the the students in groups and send them off the clean around their houses and teach them to be more hygienic around their houses. They had a great time cleaning and we hope they will continue doing it.
Pray for Ben and Hanna as they are both sick and need to move to Siem Reap this week. They stay here almost for the week cause they were sick. Pray for healing.
Our prayer for Syria this week:
“They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated"
This week a friend and I met a Saudi family. We had fun chatting with them but when it came down to serious talk, they were not open at all and could not even hear or comprehend the truth that we were speaking. I was saddened for them, and at the same time reminded that Syrians' hearts really have been prepared and opened by God for such a time as this.
Father God, I pray for this Saudi family. I pray that seeds fallen on hard ground would not be washed away, but would be watered and have a longterm effect. Father God, I thank You that You have opened the hearts of Syrians to hear truth, to understand it, and that many are receiving it. I pray that You would rebuild the ancient ruins of their heritage in You. I ask that YOU would restore the places long devastated. And I pray that these lives would be used to glorify You Lord Jesus!! Thank You Jesus!!!
Thanks once again for praying for us. May God bless you in the week to come.
