Visitors from Tasmania

It was a great joy and privilege to welcome Louise Ellings and her team back to Cambodia recently. Louise is from Tasmania and has been a faithful friend to us for a long time. She always enjoys introducing us to many new friends and supporters and this trip was no exception. The team had a packed schedule, and as always were very generous and great fun to spend time with.

The team shared the gospel with many people, through teaching and playing games – and we praise God that many people came to know Jesus as their Saviour during this time! They were also able to show God’s love through providing medical treatment in ten villages, including taking people to hospital for many different health needs, and providing funding for operations and wheelchairs.

As a quick answer to our prayers they also provided desks, chairs and teaching supplies for Harvest of Hope education centre. The children were very excited, and wanted to use them straight away! These gifts are such a huge blessing from God, and they will be a big help as we educate the children in this new centre.

The team didn’t stop there – they did many more things like rebuilding houses, improving sewage systems, providing water tanks, water filters, hygiene packs, delousing treatment, baby formula, rice, clothes, dental care, more desks and a display cabinet. They even painted toilets and organised for new windows to be added at TLC! Many people in the team made commitments to provide ongoing support to the church and Serve Cambodia, and many are excited about returning in the future.

Louise also had “the most wonderful birthday at TLC, one I will cherish forever… then with friends on the Mekong later that evening, amazing food and 70 & 80′s birthday songs blaring out for 2 hours!”

As you can imagine, Louise says “the team came back absolutely exhausted!” but she says they were also “absolutely amazed at the wonderful experiences and joys they shared with so many Cambodians… everyone unanimously agreed that it was such a blessing to them to be able to bless others. So many lessons learned, so much love given and received.”

We are always encouraged to see how visits like this bring joy to those giving and to those receiving. Louise will be returning any day now with a team of Tasmanian high school kids, so please pray that she will be blessed with lots of energy and good health.
