We are excited to hear what has been going on in SE Asia from our missionaries there. The report is divided into three parts. Keep the named prayers and work there in your prayers. For the elders, Ken D

Blessings from Cambodia. We pray you are well and experiencing much peace and joy in your day-to-day activities. We continue to be extremely grateful for your prayers, love and ongoing support. We serve an amazing God who is always taking care of our needs and blesses us richly.


Recently we completed a free-to-coaches program concerning Positive Intelligence. It was interesting to learn about defense mechanisms from our early childhood that attempt to sabotage our quest for abundant life. Because we are children of God we spiritualized this experience, allowing the Holy Spirit to reign in us. We came out of the program with more awareness, self-control, hope and joy. Please pray with us that through self-control, awareness of Satan’s fiery arrows, and living by the Spirit we can all grow up into the character of Jesus.

As has been the tradition for many years, yet this year delayed by COVID-19, we gathered with the other missionaries for a holiday fellowship meal together. It was so wonderful to hear each of them share about their lives and ministries here in Cambodia. Interestingly, while several families have returned to the States over the years (and another has plans to return in 2021), we have not had any newcomers in over five years. We’re curious to discover whom the Lord is calling and preparing to come next. Please pray about this.

What’s up with coaching? The short of it is that we both continue to coach others. Dennis is very active in helping others learn to coach and is also active in several online communities of practice. The Academy of Solution Focused Training has sponsored us to join an upcoming workshop entitled, “Explore Your Interactions: Applying Microanalysis in Your Conversations.” We’re confident it will be helpful in all of our interactions with others. We ask you to pray that we can always be love, salt and light to all of our relationship world-wide.


Once again thank you for being an important part of our story, our ministry and our journey. We praise God for you. We ask you to continue to pray for Cambodia from every facet of God’s work among these people.

Grace, Peace, Love & Blessings,

Dennis and Sharon
