This morning we had a wonderful service here in Phnom Penh. Bro. Keo preached a message on the subject of Integrity. Two of the ladies singing groups sang special numbers. Although it was hot in the auditorium, the spirit was good.
Friday morning Kanha and Man were married at the church. This is our church’s first wedding and it went well ! We are all so challenged by this young couple’s testimony for the Lord. They made the decision to wait until Monday to go on their honeymoon because they did not want to miss their ministry responsibilities this weekend. Please pray that this godly couple will be blessed in their marriage and used to win many more souls to the Lord.
Brother and Mrs. Chan Sin are visiting us this week. Brother Sin is the pastor who oversees the Cambodian ministry at our home church in California. It was a blessing to be able to have him with us for our Saturday soul-winning in Prak Pnou village. They were also able to join us for the services at the church today. We were privileged to have Brother Sin preach for our evening service. At 77 years of age, Brother Sin is likely one of the oldest living Cambodian pastors in the world. He is almost certainly the oldest living Baptist pastor of Cambodian decent. Tomorrow morning at 5:00 a few of us will leave for Mrs. Sin’s hometown in Battambang, Cambodia for the purpose of witnessing to her family. She has only one sister who is still alive and she is in her mid-80’s. They have requested prayer that she will receive Christ as her Saviour while they are in Battambang.
It has been a blessing to have 20 folks here visiting from our home church. Several of our guests are here on their senior trip. Monday and Tuesday the young men will accompany some of our folks to Pra Bang village (2 hours from Phnom Penh) for the purpose of preparing land to build a church building. The ladies will help with some fix-up projects around the church in Phnom Penh on Monday and then they will have a shopping day on Tuesday. They are a wonderful group of young people and are a great testimony of the love and solid Christian training they have received in their homes and Christian school. I have included pictures of several of the young people so that their parents can see they are happy and healthy! (except for some minor stomach issues!)
