Many reasons to thank God over the past month

Our God is always providing for us and guiding us, and it is only because of this that we have seen so much growth and so many blessings in our churches and in the community projects we are involved with. There are so many things to thank God for at the moment but here are just a few recent examples of his provision we wanted to share with you.

Firstly, particularly due to the very successful black tie ball event organised by the fundraising team in New South Wales, enough money has now been pledged to fully complete all of the 16 new homes in Prey Sor. In only a short time now, we will be able to relocate all the remaining families from Kian Klieng, just in time before the flooding gets too high this year. Please pray that God will make the transition easy for these families as they adjust to a new place and completely different way of life.

Praise God also for a successful trip to Perth, where relationships deepened with churches and sponsors who have been a key part of our work over many years. The trip was also a growth experience for Pastor Vuthy, Meng and Phanna, who were able to speak and preach in a foreign language and country which was a learning experience and an encouragement to them. Plus there were also some team meetings with the Support Group to discuss key areas for development over the next year. To top it all off, the four Cambodian travellers even made a trip under the ocean to visit the sharks!

We also want to praise God that Sara was protected and healed from his sickness (he caught the mumps just before flying to Australia), and that others were not affected. It wasn’t much fun for him to be away from his home and family while still unwell, but thankfully after a few extra days of rest he was able to join in with most of the trip and was preaching with extra enthusiasm.

Speaking of preaching, the month of August brought the Fellowship of Hope churches so many blessings, right across the whole country of Cambodia. Our network of churches continues to grow at a raid pace, with new congregations being planted all the time. We have now reached a total of 58 churches, and so we have an ever increasing number of pastors and leaders in need of training and resources. Our dear friend Pastor Singh from the USA spent a total of 6 weeks travelling among our regional churches, preaching to the believers and helping to train the local leaders in each place. This has been a very big encouragement to many, and is so valuable to the growth of God’s people in this country.

Lastly but not insignificantly, we are thankful that the road in front of TLC could be fixed recently before the ground becomes too wet and muddy with the increasing rains. Over the past couple of years this road had become so bad that access to TLC and Happy Village had become more and more difficult during the rainy season.

We hope that you will be encouraged by all that God is doing in Cambodia. Thank you for your support and prayers.
