Yes, Praise our Awesome Lord! He has done more here in Cambodia than I had imagined or expected.
(1) When I arrived at the BL, I found 1,000 manuals were printed and ready! (Our manual, God's Plan for His Church, is already in nearly 35 languages. While we had our old edition in Khmer language, this is our latest edition with completely new translation work. It is truly a milestone for our work in Cambodia!)
(2) I printed 15 banners with no words for $105. That is $7 per banner! (These are banners that give the overview of God's Plan for His Church. We just started using them this year, and now we are making a way for them to be easily translated into the languages of the people.)
(3) Yesterday (Dec. 7), Brother B's friend came to the BL and I gave her 400 manuals and 3 banners! (Brother B is our "Timothy," a true servant of God reaching out to his entire home country of Vietnam and beyond. He is now doing work in Cambodia, thus the need for the manuals to be given to his contact. This is a new breakthrough of multiplication in Cambodia!)
(4) Eight people (5 men, 3 women) graduated and gave amazing reports on chapter 7! (Chapter 7 is where those who have completed a thorough study of Acts and Paul's epistles put together their plan for church planting and church renewal.)
(5) One man, “KS”, has already gone to two provinces to teach GPHC, equipped with 100 manuals and 1 banner! (This "Timothy" is already moving out to train others before I even leave the country!)
(6) Yesterday (Dec. 7), I met with “V”, and he renewed his interest and passion for GPHC, asking me to work with teams of Cambodians in 4 provinces during 2017! This is God's amazing grace, opening doors and multiplying His work through graduates (Timothy's) who will take this to their own people. “V” told me story after story of denominations that have strayed from God's Word, relying on their unbiblical structures, and is excited that we will continue bring God's Word to the needy people of Cambodia. (“V” is the key leader in Cambodia with a strong and expansive ministry to the entire country. We have been working with him for several years, but now we are taking this ministry to new places. God is on the move!)
(7) God seems to be opening the way to Laos again in 2017! In my meeting with “V”, he shared how he is working with “J” to complete the editing of the new manual in Laos, and we can expect to go there again. (Please pray for “J” because his mother passed away last week.)”
