We continue to be the Prayer Coordinators for the Orality Network of Cambodia and are thrilled to see more involvement in various gateways used in oral teachings. Cambodian culture is rich in proverbs and old folk stories!!! Oral learners learn and remember through stories, proverbs, song and drama. Thank you Lord for ways to connect with the vast number of people who learn orally. Click on the logo below to learn more.
The end of July-early August we were blessed to join the Asian Mission Forum (AMF) held in Bangkok, Thailand. This annual conference/workshop has missionaries joining specifically from Asia as well as other nations. This years theme, “The City” consisted of three keywords 1) Gather 2) Pray and 3) Reach. We were all blessed by the facilitators, the keynote speakers who fed us from God’s Word, and by the common bond of love, unity, prayer and encouragement.
Prayer Circles Cambodia had another prayer ride September 23-26. Continue praying for the prayer warriors, their rides and the people of Cambodia.

You have heard or seen how our Lord is working in Cambodia and in the hearts of the people here. We beg you to please remember to pray for healing for Chai-aeng (a young girl suffering with an illness for a long time). Also pray for various witch doctors, and for other forms of spiritual darkness and warfare that plague the people and country of Cambodia.
Please pray for our great nephew Ethan Jones and his family. About 1 month ago Ethan (12 years old) was hit by a truck while riding his go-cart. He was immediately care-flighted to the hospital. He is stable, but has been through several surgeries and facing a long recovery. Please pray for us to use wisdom and discernment in our saying “YES” and/or “NO” in regards to the vast needs here in Cambodia. We value and treasure your prayers.
Grace, Peace, Love & Blessings, Dennis and Sharon
