Greetings!

We hope this finds you well! A lot has been happening here in Phnom Penh Thmey and we wanted to share just a few of our recent highlights with you. We hope you will be encouraged by what God is doing in and through our church here.

Bible Training School

In December 2017 we started a Bible Training School in the Church. Around 20 students from within the congregation began attending weekly classes on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, studying through the books of the New Testament inductively.

What the students are saying:  The school has helped me to enjoy reading the Bible more and now I see many things differently.”

 “Now that I have studied the historical background of each of the books, I can put myself in the original readers shoes and interpret the text from what it may have meant to them in that time.”

“I have learned why some people give up so much to follow Jesus and now I appreciate the Bible more and more.”

The school has almost gone through the whole New Testament with only 3 books left to study! They are looking forward to graduating and taking what they have learned to share with others.

Mercy Ministry

One story from our Mercy Ministry that we wanted to share with you is of a husband and his heavily pregnant wife who recently joined our church at a time when they were in real need. Without a home or income they found themselves staying with family who themselves were struggling to get by. Being without money even for the basics and about to have a new baby, this was understandably an incredibly stressful time for them.

On our first house visit with them a month ago we brought rice and groceries, not yet knowing their story. The husband was amazed because of a dream he had received the night before of God leading him by the hand up a mountainside to the mountain top where he could see much more clearly. He woke up thinking a miracle would happen that day –and that morning the pastoral care and mercy team arrived with much needed food. They were very touched by Gods goodness.

Even more amazing is that the wife has been a Christian faithfully for over ten years but her husband wasn’t and he  would often make life more difficult for her because of this.  She constantly prayed for him though and her prayers were answered that day when, because of the dream followed by the arrival of our team, he decided to start coming to church and give his life to Jesus!

His wife gave birth to a healthy baby girl with much support and prayers from our congregation and her husband is attending our Life Change classes to learn more about God. As a church we have been able to continue to support them with food, clean water and meet different financial needs. Recently one of our members generously gave them a bicycle which will help the husband get to his new job!

Prey Romeas

Our campus out in Prey Romeas recently held their graduation for 88 students (including full time, part time and computer classes.) We were excited to see so many parents join the program! It was wonderful to see them take pride in their child's progress. The kids were also very excited for their achievements, and it was the topic of conversation amongst students as well as with children not currently enrolled.

We did the graduation ceremony at the end of our regular weekly worship service on Sunday, which meant all the parents attended the service that morning as well. Even without knowing the songs, they stood to sing and join along. Pheap, the campus pastor, gave his testimony as the message that morning and he was able to share not only the impact that Christ had on his life, but also how the church and English school in Phnom Penh Thmey had played such a large role in his heart transformation.

Our heart is to see growth in practical skills of English and computer, but the reason we do it is to reach out with God's love and have the opportunity to share the Gospel to see transformation in this community.
Thank you for taking the time to read our update. We really appreciate all your prayers and support. We are so grateful to have you join with what God is doing here in Cambodia!

Blessings from
Sophea, Jenny and Team
