Our brother Dennis Welch just completed a motorcycle trip through part of Cambodia with five other brethren, visiting and praying for and with people they met. What follows is a report from that trip. We need to keep this effort to spread God’s gospel in our prayers and especially for those helping carry it. For the elders, Ken D

IMG_0784“Well, we just completed another prayer circle around Cambodia. I found this trip to be interesting. We normally have a set plan on where to go and whom we want to meet but again on this trip, as on other prior trips, God redirected our path. On these prayer circle trips we normally meet up with believers who live far in the jungle, we pray for them, share with them and give them words of encouragement. We would pray for lands where the Gospel has not reached yet or where there is no growth. On this trip we were there to share and encourage a pair of missionaries who may live in a city but are surrounded by none believers and none English speakers. They were glad to share with us the works they are doing knowing that we would fully understand what their sacrifice means.

IMG_0783We may think that missionaries are strong and they have God with them. They are all that but missionaries too need words of encouragement. God uses us as His instrument to encourage them. As God uses each one of you to pray for us on our trips, as you write your words of prayers and words of encouragement and comment on the photos, they give us strength. I do or we do want to thank you for your part in this. Thank you for your prayers and your words to us.”
