Food Pantry Needs: tooth paste, deodorant, and shampoo. Can you help?
In August we received a report from Dennis Welch in Cambodia. We all have been excited by how we have been ab le to be involved in this wonderful work. When we involve ourselves as God’s people in the labor of love in the spreading of the Gospel, we often concentrate on how the efforts will affect the lost. A portion of Dennis’ report, below, can tur n our thoughts towards how the spreading of the Gospel can affect God’s people themselves.
Greetings from Cambodia! August 2015 “Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised, and His greatness is unsearchable.” Psalm 145:3. We are so grateful for the ways God continues to work fervently in the Kingdom of Cambodia and in our lives. Furthermore, we are thankful for the many blessings each of you pour out on our behalf in prayers, encouragements, support and love. Please pray without ceasing for the work you are doing with us and through us. There’ve been lots of great things happening for us and our ministries, especially the SNACK Program. SNACK was blessed to host interns Chandler Gum and Brandi Robert who participated in the Worldwide Witness program of Abilene Christian University. Through the six weeks they spent with the SNACK Program they shared that their experience was life changing. Chandler shared,
“God enlightened me on what joy looks like in the midst of the unknown. In the faces of the children and in the time with the members of SNACK I was being taught discipleship. I was in awe of the way they all gave so much. The children poured out so much love on us. The staff gave so much of their time and attention day in and day out without complaint. I saw within the SNACK team disciples joyfully chasing after the Lord’s command to love one another. I will never forget my time in Cambodia, but more importantly I will never forget my time with these people because they are the story, the core of this program that makes it so impactful, so efficacious, and so memorable. I can tell you that SNACK is a pearl in Phnom Penh, a treasure of God’s love spreading and flourishing to those who need it most.”
Join us in a prayer of thanksgiving for servants like these. Also be conscious that those who work in the spread of the Gospel of Jesus are affected by that Gospel themselves. May we all grow as disciples. For the elders, Ken D
