(Bill, Chheng, Sophorn, Jennifer)

The Churches in Prek Ambel and Sre Trang are doing well in the Lord. Chheng said the students are studing hard. He has had a few decide the schedule was too hard and they dropped out of the program. Even with these reductions there are still 20 students in this year class. Thanks be to God!

Please review the prayer requests below for the work in Cambodia. We must remember that Cambodia is a land that has long worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator for hundreds of years. Sin has reigned and continues to reign in the hearts of millions of Khmer people. Pray with us that the Lord would raise the dry bones of Cambodia. Pray that Christ would reign in their hearts!

Prek Ambel - Pray For:

Chheng's & Sophorn's health to remain strong
The believers to continue to be transformed by the renewing of their minds
The Lord's protection from wolves in sheep's clothing
Finances to come in to meet the needs of the ministry
The discipleship building construction to be well built
The village to remain open to the Gospel
Chheng's preaching to be filled with the Spirit and with power

Sre Trang - Pray For:

Pastor Ngan's ability to teach & shepherd the flock of God
The Church to consider each other as better than themselves
An "open" door of ministry in the area
The Lord to grant the village repentance
The Church to be salt and light in a dark place
The Gospel of God grace and mercy to be spread into the whole region
(2 Corinthians 5:19-21)

May God bless you for your prayers and gifts for Cambodia,
Bill Hale
