Disciples Making Disciples

On Sunday during assembly we observed that we had some folks among us who were not yet Christians and we didn’t really know about their faith.  Therefore, we decided to share the Good News story with the church so that we all might grow in our ability to tell the Story about the Savior.  Afterwards, we asked who believed in Jesus and everyone raised their hands.  To say one believes is one thing (even the demons believe…and shudder).  To seek salvation from sin, death and hell by trusting in God’s grace through the blood of Jesus to cleanse requires greater faith.

Among the group was our new day guard, Rus who is the cousin of our night guard.  He has been among us just two weeks and even though he is illiterate he is a good listener and fast learner.  It seems an older woman had been teaching him a bit about Jesus while he lived in his village, Oukakhob in Kampong Chhnang Province.

Dennis, Kimhout, Rus, and Vanna studied about disciples making disciples.

Today, our SNACK Program evangelists, Vanna and Kimhout stayed in the city to study with Dennis.  We invited Rus to join us as we practiced telling the Good News and sharing Bible stories that display the qualities of Jesus which cause us to believe, trust, love, revere, obey and worship Him as Lord and King.  Then we turned our attention to Rus.  Upon sharing the Story again and more he told us that he wanted to be cleansed of his sins.  So when the SNACK Program staff returned from the countryside serving the children we all gathered around our fish pond and joyfully watched a new child of God being born.

We praise the True Teacher, Jesus Christ, the Word of God for bearing fruit among us and allowing us to be a small part of His Kingdom work.  We beg you to pray for young Rus to grow and grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ, the Savior.  Living among us and the staff will certainly provide him opportunity.  We also ask you to pray for our SNACK Program evangelists as they go house-to-house telling the families of the SNACK children the Good News about Jesus who loves their children, loves them and desires to save them too.

Happy, happy, happy family in Christ Jesus. We all praise Lord Jesus for saving our new brother, Rus

    Dennis,

    Who all does this go out to? I want to make sure it goes to all Central members who have email addresses, so let me know if that is happening. Wouldn’t it be nice if all our donors had a computer and were savvy enough to read email! [?]
