“Because I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God. He is the Rock, His work is perfect: for all His ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is He.” ~ Deuteronomy 32:3-4 ~
So, time for an update
Soon it will be holidays again. Sooner for me in fact, because I leave for Canada next week. This week I am giving my exams to my English classes. We’ve been reviewing and I hope they all do well. It’s hard to believe that it’s been another year of school already. At the beginning of the year I remember thinking, “Well this will take a while.” And now here we are, at the end already. I thank God, and give Him all the glory for His wonderful watch-care and love to us. Here’s some pictures of the students from this year.
Next year will be different. We are saying goodbye to two of our long-term volunteers, Laura, who has served here for 4 years, and Emily, who has served here for 2 years. I love these two, and they are some of my closest friends. I am going to miss them a lot, and so will the students who have received the love and attention from these two dedicated missionaries.
On the note of teachers – next school year, beginning in September, we have openings for volunteer teachers. Is God calling you? Being a volunteer missionary is something neither I nor my fellow volunteers regret. It has profoundly opened our eyes, changed our lives and brought us closer to God. The Bible says we are ALL called to go – Have you responded to God’s call in your life?
Here’s some things that have happened recently:
The Grade 11 and 12 Evangelism project in Svay Sor finished. Every day they had one-hundred or so children attending, many of whom at the end of the program expressed an interest in learning more about the Bible and the God of the Bible. There was also four elders from the village who also desired to learn more. Please keep them and the Bible workers who remain there in your prayers.
The KMET (Khmer Medical Evangelistic Training) Team left today to start a four week medical evangelism program in Kralanh Town about 50kms away from Siem Reap City. The participants of the 5 week KMET course graduated a couple of weeks ago, and now are getting the chance to put their skills to use assisting the Church Planter there to do some serious evangelism in his area. Please pray for them and pray that the Holy Spirit will prepare the hearts of those who will hear them to receive the message of life they have gone to share.
A couple of Sabbaths ago we had a baptism here. Sixty-eight people were baptized. Most of whom were students at our school, but there were a few from outside of WPY. We had to hold the baptism in the dormitory pond, instead of the church pond because of the lack of rain which meant the church pond was completely dried up. Please pray for those who were baptized, that they will understand the commitment that they made, and continue to grow up into Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
A wonderful thing that happened was the engagement of Shannon, Tim’s son, and Sreiya a couple of weeks ago. Now both of Tim and Wendy’s sons are engaged, and prayerfully hoping to travel to Australia in August – visa approval pending – to get married.
In other news, IMET (International Medical Evangelism Training) is ready to start. Deadline to apply for the July 20th 9-month Medical Evangelism program class is almost upon us, apply now and get certified for FREE — and remember the last month’s practical is planned to be held in China!! Learn more about IMET here!
Looking around at current world events, I really believe that time is short. May your house be built upon the Rock, where it will withstand all of Satan’s fury and be found ready in that Great Day when our Lord returns to take us to be with Him forever.
