Tonight I want to ask each one of you to please pray for our children here on the mission field. A good friend of mine shared to me this story. They adopted 2 orphans in their house but then found out that they both used some drugs. The youngest got caught, he is only 15 years old, and they put him in a rehabilitation centre/prison without trail. Now his wife need to take them some food otherwise they have none to eat. Corruption here is great and the government is trying to crack down on drug users, because their numbers look bad. Prisons are overcrowded and it’s almost impossible to get a fair trial.
On top of that he shared to me that his 12 year old daughter was missing the other night, at 12pm and they found out that she was with some friends in Pub Street. Now for you that is not familiar with this place, it’s the local Sodom and Gomorra. Party, drugs and alcohol till you drop. No limits and no control. Nobody ask for Id’s and you can buy everything on the streets, not even need to go inside a restaurant. He says it was very loud and lots of drunken people walking around. Please pray for our children to get good friends that will not pull them down into the black pit.
I went with some friends from England to the jungle. We had a great time doing needed medical work in Thor Piang Rosey. The next day we took the bikes out to the jungle and and visited 2 small villages. It was so heart-warming to see the people came from the fields to accommodate us. They even cook us lunch. We were so blessed. My friend, whose kidneys are failing, is still alive and now he use Sesame seeds mixed with coconut oil and that helps him a lot. Praise the Lord. We could visit also with my friends in the next village. Even the Spiritual Man came for some meds. We can see that he is controlling this area. The one lady, she can speak good English, shared to Pam about the bad spirits in the mountain. Pray with us for this beautiful place to be set free.
Pray for our safe ride as I bring some Germans this time and we will visit the same places. Pray that the people will see our commitment and most of all the Love of Christ.
Got a new 2 Month old baby from Ratanakiri that has an Ulcerated Hemangioma. It’s a birthmark that became bad, in layman’s term. Currently she is in the hospital and I think they cannot do the operation here as it is extensive surgery. They are monitoring and cleaning her wound now. Pray that tis little one will be healed. We had a whole house full of people that came with the baby as the tribal people are scared to travel on their own. Now they know of this nice house and good food that they can enjoy while coming to Siem Reap and they all want to come, hahahaha. It’s my entire wife’s fault for cooking so well……
Pray for some sick people please:
Toinette is also not feeling well and she is on antibiotics. Pray that we can get behind the problem why her lymph nodes are swelling up so much.
Pray also for ouma Paula, Toinette’s mum, as she seeks wisdom for a possible back operation.
Our friend Julie Ann Passon also got an operation on her nose and is at home recovering.
Another friend Donna Swanson from Lowman, had a big back surgery and is recovering at home as well.
Continue to lift up our friends Jacob and Carmen in Tanzania. They are doing much better after being sick. http://geymansteps.blogspot.com/2017/02/another-day-closes.html
A great reminder for us in this week: God chose you based on his mercy, not your performance. You’ll never earn it. You’ll never deserve it. You couldn’t work hard enough for it. You couldn’t be perfect enough. It’s only because of God’s grace and mercy that the Creator of the universe says, “I want you in my family.”
Love you all
