The Latest on the Church locally!

A wonderful ministry update to share to you all who are watching and praying through the progress of the land stabilization project on the Immanuel church site in Snor Cambodia. While we must realize that the increase of rain frequency has brought forth some delays and reruns of late, it is exciting to see project slowly coming to fruition. More land pictures in the future !

Tuk Tuks On The Road

To our faithful partners of Immanuel Lutheran Church Crystal Lake, IL we present to you the results of your diligent efforts in equipping God’s ministry under the leadership of Pastor Samuel. Words cannot express the gratefulness of these vitally important travel tools into the villages which will bring all of the preaching station souls closer together for fellowship, worship, teaching, and growth between the communities.

The red tuk tuk will easily seat 10 and travel over the cumbersome roads, and allow carrying of much needed church supplies that have been sparse until now but can also considered going forth.

Additionally, the remaining funds after careful negotiation allowed Pastor Samuel to have the tuk tuk wagon totally overhauled with new springs, shocks, undercarriage, wheels and tires, new seats and arm rests, plus a new roof and covers for the rainy season. We have had only a short jaunt thus far, but the difference in riding is without question impressive.

Thank you so much with love from us here in Siem Reap.

Please share this to the congregation for us who may not see it here. *_*

Thank you for praying with us for God’s Ministry here in Cambodia

Please pray with/for God’s ministry here in Cambodia with us in the following pleas and praises ~ (per request of Pastor Samuel who has asked his secretary (i.e. me for the moment 🙂 ) I will supply a bit of history for those of you who’d like to be more detailed. These came out of our prayer meeting tonight.

1-Savong house anniversary ~ both for his business and his marriage of 10 years. This man is the head of the house where we meet on Sunday evenings to share with these newbie believers, all young folk.

2-Kok Kraul Village ~ tomorrow we are being invited to share time with the representatives of 12 nations (at least) who are coming with the Minister of Education for the primary schools of country of Cambodia. (7100+) Recall that this school is a pilot project (the first) with the WFP (World Food Program) and these kiddos go to school all day vs only 4 hours as the norm. They get to sing their ‘English’ songs for the audience tomorrow. We’ve met the Minister of Education today and he is VERY interested in what has been accomplished in English in this school as it is not available nationwide at the primary level and due to complications in the government won’t probably come any time soon.

3-Sophena’s parents are not well. They are in their 50’s and live in Thailand.

4-Praise and thanks for ministry opportunities that come along in/during our own ‘planning’ and are not expected but are willingly embraced.

5-Baptisms that have been proclaimed in these past months and for those yet to come.

6-Sunday School program at the local level. (Request of Sophena) ~ She has two little ones yet and cannot do it solo in our absence.

7-Being called to serve ~ a privilege and an honor ~ not always an easy road to follow.

How Firm A Foundation ~ Update

Congratulations to each and every one of you who have invested in the project, “How Firm a Foundation.”  Thanks to you, we have succeeded in reaching and actually exceeding our goal of $9650.

However, there was a second goal in my mind, that the giving profile would be 1000 donors, each giving $10 to demonstrate the philosophy of crowd funding, namely “large numbers of people, each making a small investment to achieve a mighty goal.”  Please pray for your friends to whom you forwarded a copy of this web site, but may not have entered into prayer with the Holy Spirit on how they should be involved.

Thank you.

How Firm a Foundation

The scoreboard says that we have less than 12 days to go to raise $1980. We are at 79% of our goal and it would be a shame to miss it at this point. If you are not currently a giver, won’t you pray and ask God if you shouldn’t at least give a token gift to the church in Snor. If you are a current giver, pray if you can stretch just a little further. In either case, please encourage others to get involved and be part of this project. You will be blessed.

Cambodia National Lutheran Youth Camp 2017

This past week we accompanied a few of our Siem Reap youth to the Cambodian Lutheran youth National Camp. There were a total of 111 youth from across the country who traveled and met up to learn, discuss, and share about youth contemporary issues. So many, of not the majority, are first generation Christians in their communities and stand on the front lines. For many of them, the road as they stand firm, is not smooth and simple. They’ve made sacrifices within their communities and their families.

The photos and videos can speak volumes more than I could type here. One particular young man, from nearly the start, would come to me with questions during the breakout sessions. When I asked to give me his idea first, his reply was simple and direct “I don’t have one yet, so please teach me/us some explanation so we understand more.” He shared that he had just gotten a bible, and was reading it, but didn’t understand a lot of it yet. Gratefully he had a local pastor to mentor him.

Our last night was talent night.

Each sending area had the opportunity to share something related to the theme ‘youth contemporary issues.’ Samuel wanted to do something on Pentecost. Thank goodness for the internet and YouTube at that point, plus Veggie Tales. We managed to pull off a dual language 3 minute skit then Sophena climaxed it with a perfect song. Samuel got in his mini sermon in Khmer in between.

No, we didn’t ‘win’ the grand prize, but in my mind these young people did a perfect presentation and I’m so proud of them. I’m thinking they maybe had no clue about the healing of the blind man nor the cripple until that time. Enjoy the video snips and the pics.

Oh yes, I was the blind person, and the odd girl out for speaking another language, as Peter and John were out doing their miracle thing at that time.

Oh, the gorgeous voice singing is none other than Pastor Samuel’s wife Sophena, who leads the music portion of this ministry in Siem Reap. She is known region wide for her glorious God given talent~and she praises Him with that very gift again and again.
