We are all filled with joy that our SNACK truck driver and teacher, along with his sweet wife Sunny, by the mighty and powerful hand of God, have welcomed a new baby girl into our SNACK family. May God bless this brother and sister with overflowing love and nurturing care for baby Rachel. May the perfect Father above bless this child with strength and good health. Thank you Lord Jesus!

The Cambodia Bible Institute has now graduated 38 servants of God’s Word. Ponleu and Sothary (center) were the latest. Rich Dolan, dean of CBI, along with his wife Ronda have the full story on their blog @ http://randrdolan.blogspot.com/. Please join our prayer for the fruit that will be born as a result of these trained servants of Christ Jesus, the Word of God.

CBI in the Countryside

Evangelism Practicum at Cambodia Bible Institute

What’s the point of learning if one never uses that knowledge? The students of the Cambodia Bible Institute receive training in telling God’s amazing story to the world. As a part of their curriculum about every three months the students and staff leave the walls of the school building to engage the world, sharing about King Jesus in the Kingdom of Cambodia. We know the story is relevant, any time, anywhere, to any people. We hope you will join our prayer that the methods the students are learning are effective and reproducible for the Kingdom of God to overwhelm this nation.

G2K Khmer Language Training

Sharon is a formal student once again. It has been a couple of years since we stopped having a personal tutor come to our home to further instruct us in the Cambodian language, Khmer. While Dennis continues to learn Khmer by self-study and by interaction with Cambodians. Sharon is learning by these methods too but wanted to augment her learning through a structured classroom setting at Gateway 2 Khmer (http://gateway2khmer.com/). Of the eight levels or modules, she tested into Module 6, difficult and challenging, but stretching her to grow. Please say a prayer of thanksgiving for the language ability the Lord has given us and a prayer of petition that we will continue to grow to be more effective communicators of His Love Story.

SNACK Program Medical Mission

We love the children of Cambodia. Sadly, many children lack basic medical attention that many of us take for granted. After a visit to the nutrition program, some brethren decided to try to make a difference for these precious little ones.

So in September we hosted our first SNACK Program Medical Mission to one of the villages we serve. In all, 163 patients were seen by our Cambodian doctors from Cambodia Christian Ministries (http://cambodiaministries.org/) while our evangelists shared the good news with those waiting for care.

Please say a prayer of thanksgiving for the children, the medical team and for the donors. May God cause faith in Him to grow by our service to these villagers.
