“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice” Philippians 4:4

The following is from a current report from our missionaries in Cambodia, Dennis and Sharon Welch sharing different aspects of the work there

We have now passed the seven-year mark as fulltime missionaries in Cambodia. Our work first began a s a February 2006 survey trip. Now, nearly ten years later we have grown ever more convinced of Him who is the Hea d, the Lord, the King. His Spirit within us causes us also to rejoice over you—for your love, encouragements, support and prayers. Thank you! Thank the Lord God Almighty!

SNACK Medical Mission

When one lives in the rural Cambodian countryside, receiving medical care is complicated by the cost of transportation to a doctor, clinic or hospital. The nutrition program team was again able to present a poor rural village with a day of medical care. The villag e of Trach Tong received the medical team, our staff, and a visiting couple with much joy. On the day 250 patients were blessed to receive care and treatment by the attending physicians, volunteers from Cambodia Christian Ministries (http://cambodiaministries.org/). Special than ks to the brethren who provided the funding for the medical supplies and meds. Please say a prayer of thanksgiving for the children, the medical team, the staff and for the donors. May God cause faith in Him to grow by our service to these villagers.

SNACK T-Shirts

Rural Cambodian children often have very few pieces of clothing that they frequently must share between siblings. Brethren from all over joined together to help the SNACK team bless the children with new t-shirts. The back has our SNACK Program logo in English and Khmer. On the front of the shirts is Khmer text which states “Jesus loves children” and an anchor with a heart within it. According to our research, an anchor was one of the earliest Christian symbols. Thanks to every one of you who helped these children have something new, useful and encouraging. Please join our prayer of rejoicing and thanksgiving for the opportunity for all of us to be light to these precious young souls.

More of this report later, but please remember to keep the Welches and other fellow servants, as well as the people of Cambodia in your prayers.
