Greetings to all,
Here we are and another week has gone by! We hope you are doing well. With the changing seasons comes vulnerability to illness so we hope you are protected from these maladies. We are doing well…enjoying the blessing of good health from the Lord.
This past week flew by with our normal routine of meeting for chapel at CBI each morning, followed by our morning session of Khmae lesson, lunch break, and then our afternoon language session. Language training brought us 4 more letters. We’re getting there, slow but steady. The training each week includes much review. With so much memory work, special effort is being made for additional study time.
We enjoy the opportunities we have to visit with the neighbors and those we meet while running errands and taking care of business. There are several guards and labor men working in our neighborhood whom Dennis continues to converse with and build relationships. Sharon continues to meet with a few Khmae ladies once every couple of weeks or so. She is trying to build enough relationship with them so that they know she cares and want to know “why” she cares. Please pray for Kuntia, Sophea, and for Pove.
Instead of the usual Sunday in the countryside, we stayed in Phnom Penh this weekend for the big gospel meeting at PPcoC. Two brothers came from Four Seas College of Bible and Missions in Singapore. They taught us the following eight lessons for the church:
· What does it mean to be “in Christ?”
· Church Leadership – Joshua
· Attitudes of Church Leaders
· Motivation to do the work
· Have I become your enemy? Gal 4:16
· God shows no partially…do we?
· God cares for all people
· How I can love the unlovable Rom 12:14-21
The meeting lasted from Friday evening, all day Saturday, until Sunday at lunch, with all meals provided for any who attended. Some of the brethren from the village churches came to join us too. We really enjoyed all the fellowship and some yummy traditional Khmae food.
This week’s schedule is filled with many exciting events, but that’s about it for the past week! Stay tuned for next week’s report.
We are in the process of planning a furlough trip during the summer. As details are confirmed we will certainly keep you posted.
Sending our love and blessings! We do remember who sent us and why we came. Please pray we maintain a good balance for the long distance race ahead.
