Pastoral Training with Mission Direct

As for several years, Mission Direct has been sending short-term mission teams to Cambodia from the UK. Whether through teachers training or pastoral training, they have been a blessing to many lives in Cambodia both directly and indirectly for the glory of God along side Fellowship of Hope Church. This is in addition to the amazing work they do every year in supporting Serve Cambodia’s community development projects, through fundraising for and helping to build new facilities, homes and classrooms.

Last year, a couple of pastors whose names are Bob and Mike (who were part of the Mission Direct team) conducted pastors’ training for a few days on the Book of Nehemiah. They returned again this year with two other pastors Clive and Dave and taught on the book of Acts. They covered topics such as Pastoral care, sin, the cross, baptism, and worship while teaching from the book of Acts.

The training started on the 13th and finished on the 15th of February. Some of the pastors that were present were from the provinces and they brought some of their elders with them as well. Now they in turn are able to teach other pastors and elders across the rural areas of Cambodia with what they themselves have learned.

The training was mutually beneficial as the local leaders learned from the team and the team learned how churches work in Cambodia, the victories and the challenges faced by local leaders, and the sacrifices made by people from poor communities who dedicate their lives to serve Christ. They will be discussing about further training for the future, but for this year the local Cambodian leaders have received much and will in turn teach others what they have learned.

Fellowship of Hope Church (FHC) is continually committed to conduct our annual Pastors and Leaders conference in this year with our fabulous partner from Perth Bible College (PBC). The conference was held from 10th till 15th July 2017, which located in Siem Reap at the Dara Reang Sey Hotel. The first day had arrived, all pastors and church leaders were enthusiastic and gathered together by catching the 2 buses ahead to Siem Reap which has a breathtaking world heritage site known as AngKor Wat Temple, as they spent approximately 6 hours on the jounery. Significantly, there were 110 pastors and leaders who took place the conference for this year.

The theme of the conference was ‘‘Serving with Integrity’’, likewise the Godly servants have to loyally serve and illustrate God’s willing with love and honor to others, by not determining about race, color, religion, sexism and nationality…etc. Moreover, the young leaders are motivated to involve more by the following tracks which paved the way by elder pastors. Particularly, there were 2 sessions in a day at the morning and the evening, the first session at the morning was divided by 2 phases, there was a teaching session which followed by groups’ discussion, and then four different workshops after the break-time. And in the evening, there also was other teaching session. Interestingly, there were a great spirit of worship and unity in the place and everyone was challenged to draw closer in order to work much more effectively for the kingdom of God before each session was begun.

During the conference, the three senior pastors from FHC’s “mother church” conducted a 2km marathon along with 35 participants from the conference joined, as they want to raise money for building the mother church building in Phnom Penh which locate in Takmao. As all participants had to pay $2.50 each for church building fund. When this building is completed, FHC would not need to rent the existing church facility.

Without you, the conference would not have been a success in the life of FHC in Cambodia. We say thank you again for supporting us in our 8th conference together. We hope this report encouraged you and illustrate how your faithful prayers and financial support are strengthening the Fellowship of Hope Churches in order for them to be the salt and light in their communities.

Life living in Rubbish Dump village

The Rubbish Dump village has 45 families who live around a rubbish dump, most of their jobs are scavenge at rubbish dump for plastic, copper and other recyclable materials that they can exchange for money and they can earn $4 per day.

So do you think that $4 per day is enough for make their living for 5 member in their family? Of course that it is not enough for them, to making their living even in poor conditions at least you need to have more than $7 per day. That’s why some of them tries to push their children must scavenge for recyclable materials every day and most kids to work alongside them to make enough income and provide the family’s needs… (rice, food, clean water & Renting room every month) while most of the kids don’t attend school.

If some day they can’t make enough money 3 time a day to buy food, they need to find food to eat from dump that some restaurant leave over at rubbish dump.

During Phcum Benh Day (Khmer Holiday) that is very difficult time for them to earn money to buy rice and food to feed their family, because buyers at the rubbish dump not available to buy from them for this time and they are need to wait till the Khmer Holiday is finished. Another problem they face with raining season, the area where they scavenge rubbish it very flooding in the raining season, so they need to walk in the bad water to scavenge the rubbish for exchange money to get food, that is how they earn money to make their living!

And we would like to thanks God for his blessed by the recent team from Mounty Church who visited Fellowship of Hope Church and Serve Cambodia and the Rubbish Dump village, and we have opportunity to sharing the word of God to them and we also knew that they face with hunger problem and the team want to bless them with a gift of rice, and we not forget to thanks to Louise Ellings and her team that provide them with well for all the villager to get clean water to drinking.

This July Perth Bible College will be sending another team to Cambodia, working alongside the Fellowship of Hope Church and the work of Serve Cambodia in Phnom Penh. During the mission trip, PBC will also be involved helping to run the 7th Pastors and Leaders Conference for all of the church leaders associated with the Fellowship of Hope Churches in Cambodia to join together in one place.

Conference picture

The focus of this year’s conference will be discipleship, under the banner of “Growing Together.” This particular topic was specifically chosen by the pastors at the end of the last conference. They see the need to have their people understand what it means to be a maturing Christian in a difficult and often hostile context. The week of training will again serve to strengthen the pastors, encourage and unite the people, and have them return to their own churches as more effective servants of Christ. This training will impact on the growth of over 60 regional and village churches across Cambodia.

The leaders who attend these conferences are mostly very poor, many surviving from day to day (often on less than $5/day). To be able to attend the conference they will need others like us to assist in meeting transport, food and accommodation costs. The Fellowship of Hope churches together with Perth Bible College have in faith committed to the project. It is anticipated that this conference will have 120 participants, focussing on the church pastors and other key leaders. The total cost of the conference will be $18,000AUD (depending on the exchange rate), which will provide 5 days of in depth training for the pastors and leaders. We invite you to share financially and prayerfully in this work. All funds raised go toward supporting the training of the Cambodian conference delegates. If you are able to assist, tax deductible donations can be made via Perth Bible College – download a copy of the conference flyer for details on how to donate. <Download conference flyer>
