We will build our church with $10!

The mother church of Fellowship of Hope is based in Phnom Penh, which is the capital city of Cambodia. Today, it has grown remarkably across the country in its 10 years of existence. Through the leadership of the mother church in Phnom Penh, it has planted 66 churches and touched the lives of about 3,000 people.

Because of its growth, the leaders of Fellowship of Hope Church have decided to build a building by faith that will be the permanent base of their work in Cambodia. This project will be called “Build a church with $10.” According to the growing number of the Fellowship, our church leaders have decided to put a building by faith. We continue to be faithful to the vision that God has place in our lives as leaders as we strive to fulfill His plans for us. The Fellowship of Hope Church purchased a land in the Phnom Penh city (17.5m x 22m) three years ago. Our young engineers (who we have supported in their university studies) have design the building plan for the building of the church. The church’s building plan has two floors plus the roof level in the normal Cambodian style: the first floor will be comprise of a kitchen, a room for Sunday School, an office and the restrooms as well. The second floor will be the accommodation room for pastors and leaders, guests and students from the provinces to stay during the training run by the Fellowship of Hope church. The roof level / third floor will be the church hall, and we can also use this opening area for training, wedding, funeral, and any celebrations else.

Our desire in believing God for this building is that we can have a base that is modern, that fits the needs of the church family in Phnom Penh. That can provides comfortable accommodations to our pastors from the provinces when they arrive in Phnom Penh and the same goes for their children that come to Phnom Penh to study. Right now we rent a building, but we are believing for a building that can be a home for our church community. The new building will be able to serve the church and the communities in a more efficient manner because of the rooms that will be built, and the ongoing running costs will be much cheaper than renting. We as the church member will give US$10 each to this project, starting with the mother church in Phnom Penh, then in our network and sister churches across the country and we strongly believed that our God will provide to make it enough.

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.

Thankyou to all of the people who sponsor a student at Serve Cambodia’s 3 education centres. We hope that you enjoy this video, created by Vin – he is one of Serve Cambodia’s teaching staff and has a passion for media. You can look forward to seeing many more of his videos in the future, some of which he is already hard at work filming and editing right now.

More resources are needed to support this work during 2016. Please consider supporting Serve Cambodia in the following ways during the remaining 6 months of this year, partnering with us to give Cambodian children and their families hope and a bright future:

          * praying for God’s continuing provision, including the success of our new Goat Farms which given time to grow will assist with the sustainable generation of income that can be reinvested into helping to fund Serve Cambodia’s other projects

          * finding a friend who will sponsor a child or a staff member in the Education centres. We are aiming to get more than 100 further students sponsored over the course of this year. Student sponsorship is A$45 per month, and staff sponsorship ranges from A$100 – A$175 per month

          * giving a one off donation to help cover this year’s current operational shortfall (equivalent to A$6,000 per month at present) that is not currently covered by ongoing sponsorships

          * donating towards the construction of the third and final stage at Light of Hope Centre, which will cost around A$52,000

If you know someone who is interested in sponsoring a student they can email us at: sponsorships@servecambodia.net

If you would like to make a donation online you can do so via our partner ACCIR here (please note the donation as being for “Fundraising Appeal”): http://www.accirelief.org.au/wr084

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>
