Welches Grapevine for the glory of God – Mission Cambodia News & Update Part 2 – June 2017
Community Relationships: This past month has been exceptionally encouraging as we continue to reach out and develop new relationships and search for ways to be effective in our ministry. Most days our activities involve morning exercise whereby we have opportunity to engage others, frequent interaction with neighbors, visiting with owners, staff and other customers at a variety of shops and food vendors, and evening walks/chats with those in our community. Our presence in the community and just striving to make ourselves available has resulted in a number of new relationships. Although building trust takes time, we are praising God for opening doors and forward movement.
Other news and highlights…
I (Dennis) am blessed to be a member of a group of Khmer guys committed to studying God’s Word, sharing the gospel to the lost and strengthening the church. Like the old days at the Bible school, recently we went house-to-house in the countryside telling the gospel story to any who would listen. I love to see their passion that all might hear and believe. Please pray that our group will be light to other believers that they might do likewise.
Bible Studies: Please join us in praising God for opening new doors for us to reach out in our ministry. This month, I (Dennis) have been able to use my gift of teaching and facilitating to some college students living in our community. It has been a blessing studying with these students. We are encouraged to see one student Hoklin, filled with enthusiasm and see his faith grow as he studies God’s Word. Hoklin is now asking questions of the text as we study through the Gospel of Mark. Please join us in prayer for Hoklin and his spiritual journey and relationship with the one and only true God.
