The Cambodia branch praise God for the special month of prayer they together. The branch leaders are now writing a new church planting strategy for new locations across Cambodia. They ask for wisdom to discern the Lord’s approach for this new season. May they find open hungry hearts in this next generation.
Give thanks for the recent festival celebrating 100 years of Protestant missions in Cambodia. Held in the capital Phnom Penh at the end of January, the Cambodia Gospel Centennial Celebration included exhibitions, concerts, dances and children's activities. Pray for the conference vision statement - that Cambodia would become 'the aroma of Christ in Asia and around the world' would be fulfilled.
WEC helps to recruit for Hope International School in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, which some of our children attend. Please pray that God will provide for the school financially and give them the staff they need. Pray blessings on the recruiting process; pray that gifted teachers, wherever they are living in the world, will hear about these opportunities and come to serve at Hope School and at other schools teaching missionaries’ children elsewhere too.
The Western Cham are found near Cambodia’s main cities. They had a flourishing empire, covering southern Vietnam until the 1400s. When their territory was invaded, the Cham fled to Cambodia. Cham villagers are very poor and follow a distorted form of Islam. Pray for those currently ministering among these people to make progress and see a spiritual breakthrough, as there has been limited fruit so far.
The Burmese people are largely buddhist and have had a turbulent history. Thousands have fled to other countries, such as Cambodia, due to the instability of present-day Myanmar. The people need peace and stability. Pray that Burmese people will encounter Jesus and find that his peace and security speak into their hearts and lives.
