To you, our followers, donors and senders, we have so much to say and hope that you can accept that for security reasons, we can only tell part of the story of this last year and these present weeks. The fruit of your faithfulness in keeping us going is beyond our expectations. Beyond a simple thank you.
May we shout for joy over your salvation, and in the name of our God set up our banners! …..(Psalm 10:5 ESV)
These are “banner days” as we see both educational initiatives and business initiatives taking hold. As these take hold, the local Christians gain influence. They can raise the banner and find new levels of leadership. It is slow but it is really happening, one life, one place at a time. These Cambodian friends are taking ownership of the work they are doing and the opportunities they are finding. Some do it well quickly, some need more encouragement. Whatever they choose and whatever pace they choose, they own it. They are the emerging leaders.
We will be home in July for rest and meetings and we encourage you to call us while we are stateside so we can share more openly and face-to-face whenever possible. Ask us about the school growing so fast there are 30 kids in a classroom and the waiting list to enroll. Ask us about the sisters. Ask us about starting a business to repair roofs made of scrap steel. We have some banner stories.
Host an Awareness Event. We are scheduling in-home Awareness Events for weekdays and weeknights in July now. Gather your neighbors, friends, small group and we will open your eyes to modern day slavery and how you (and we) so often walk right past it. Oh the difference open eyes and an informed mind can make. Oh the joy of freedom fresh on the face of a new freed man or woman. You can be engaged in setting captives free. Do it!
Support. If you support our work on an ongoing basis we cannot express strongly enough our deep appreciation. If you have not yet had the chance to join with us as partners, perhaps that time in now. Click here for donor information and tax deductible giving.
