H.O.T. BIBLE CAMP
We had a total of five campers who attended the Heart of Texas Bible Camp this year. By all reports, the campers had a great time of Bible study and fun. New friendships were made and there were some tearful “good-byes” till next year. Thank you for your prayers and financial contributions that allowed these young people to attend camp! This year’s campers were: Brianna Arnold, Jessica Arnold, Austin Sanderson, Blane Sanderson and Cain Winnett.

ICE CREAM FELLOWSHIP
Next Sunday, July 15, we will have this annual get-together after our evening worship time. Home-made ice-cream seems to be the favorite version, but there are also some good-tasting store bought varieties.
What go well with ice-cream are brownies, other kinds of cookies, cakes, sprinkles, etc. These things are very well accepted. Make your plans to join in this cool and cooling fellowship next week!
“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people” 1 Timothy 2:1 (ESV)

Mission Cambodia News & Update30 June, 2018 (Part One of Two)
Greetings from Cambodia. Yes, we have arrived home after an absolutely wonderful furlough. It may have been the best furlough/ reporting trip yet!!! We were richly blessed with so much love, encouragements and prayers as we visited with our loved ones. We appreciate the time we had with you as you once again filled our hearts with joy. “Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth; break forth into joyous song and sing praises!” – Psalms 98:4
Praise & Thanksgiving…
• We are giving praise and thanksgiving for the people God has blessed us with over the years. Our church family and friends welcomed us and made us feel at home with their generous love and hospitality during our visit to the States. “I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now”. – Philippians 1:4-6
• Dennis’ first meeting with Sharon’s biological siblings. The Lord blessed us with numerous opportunities to spend precious time with family. Throughout our travels in California, Texas and Arkansas we enjoyed great times of fellowship as we built relationships and treasured memories.
• Once again we have so much to celebrate regarding our Cambodian daughters. First, our oldest, Sreykhuech, has graduated from her 3 years studies in nursing and midwifery. Furthermore, she decided to volunteer for 1 year with the government to work in the countryside giving medical care to the poor and assisting at the hospital. Theary, our middle daughter, continues to work with an organization that helps young women who have been trafficked. She continues to study English and has now started her Master Program studying Community Development. Sreypov, our youngest, continues to work as a baker and has a passion to bake yummy breads, pastries and cakes. She is a bright light for Jesus among her fellow workers. Please join us in a prayer of thanksgiving for the many blessings the Lord had given these girls and their passion to serve and minister to others!
We are grateful to be back home, refreshed and excited to see what God has in store for us and our long-term future in Cambodia. Thank you for being a faithful part of the work here and the difference you are making in our lives and the lives in Cambodia. We love you and appreciate you beyond measure.
Grace, Peace, Love & Blessings, Dennis and Sharon
