[NEWS] January 2, 2012 Newsletter

Dear Beloved,

"As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving."  Colossians 2:6-7

We start this year with the aim that our church plant here in Kampong Cham and the other churches  we have in other provinces will be rooted  and built up and will be  healthy as they obey and follow the Word of God this  year 2012.

Last November, God saved Phy a 31 year old young man . I baptized Mr. Chuoern Weng , 45 years old man,  he is now helping us drive the church van to pick up visitors every Sunday. We are praying that Mrs. Lut , ( a Department of Education provincial librarian)  Weng’s wife will get saved too. Now,they have also learned to give to the offerings.

Our Christmas Evangelistic program that was  done last December 10, had 145 that attended excluding our staff and there were about 30 young people and 3 mothers, we also had 75 first time visitors and  35 that made professions of faith, Glory to God! He is ABLE in Kampong Cham! December 11,  was Our 1st Mission Anniversary, 136 attended, 3 that made profess ions of faith.  Our attendance doubled from last year’s 73, Glory to GOD!

Our Team of 27 presented the Christmas Story to 2 villages ( Lovea Commune  and Chouk Sou ) in the afternoon of December 18 and January 1. A total of 315 kids and 79 adults attended our Christmas presentation. We had the skit and songs and I preached, praise God for those 102 that made professions of faith. It was their first time to see the story of the birth of  Christ. We gave bread and drinks and gifts to the village chiefs and our hosts. Glory to God !

My family and I we went to Banlung, Rattanakiri province on December 22 to 26. We visited  and I preached for Bethany Baptist Mission for their 4th Thanksgiving Sunday, there were 7 that raised hands to receive the Lord Jesus. 
We visited the Cambodia-Vietnam border in Ohyadao and along the way, we saw 3 towns that needed  churches.

We are giving God all the Glory for these total results in  our ministries for the year  2011 -
Total Saved =  1,113                     
Total  baptized  =  96                        
Total average attendance =   519

Please pray for our  Prayer requests:
1. New believers  and families will grow in faith and in the knowledge of God.(10 families added to each churches)

2. Church Workers to help us in Kampong Cham ministry.

3. Land for church property in Kampong Cham - 2,000 square meter;   tricycle for  Kampong Cham church.  

4. Growth of new believers and follow up of baptismal candidates; Leadership training in Kampong Cham

5. Penny’s Monthly Tuition - $950 , we need to pay this every month until April 2012. 

May God continue to bless you as a partner and friend of this ministry. Thank you and God bless you.

Yours for Calvary,
