Greetings loved ones!
The past month has been tremendous! God continues to enlarge our borders in more ways than one and I am so thankful I am a part of it. I want to talk first about the "Water of Life Raft" that our graduates, Hokly and Pheap, are serving in. The raft is now fully complete and ready to operate. In fact, we had to tow it to its designated area in Kampong Kleang, which is about an hour drive from Siem Reap for its Grand Opening. It was a huge success in that the health department, the head of the communes, and the villagers came to see what it was that we were offering. They gladly welcomed us and supports what we want to do. Below are some pictures of the event.
We pray that our boys will use this opportunity to spread the gospel and give them Living Water that only Jesus can provide. We look forward to the good works that these two graduates will do in Kampong Kleang.
Another way that God has enlarged our borders here is by providing me with a new son! His name is Sovanda. He was born on November 5th. I am so happy to have a son and to be able to have the opportunity to train him and mold him with God's word so that one day he can become a servant of God as well. Some fathers want their sons to be professional athletes, some want their sons to be doctors, or lawyers, or engineers and they rear them up to have the best chance at achieving those goals. My focus and my priority for my son is for him to be a professional servant of God. I want him to be a spiritual doctor, one who knows God's laws, and one who will help build God's kingdom. I want him to know who God is and what God wants for him. I will rear him, as well as my daughter, to be such individuals. I will do whatever it takes to give them the best chance at achieving those goals. Please pray for my wife and I as we work together to accomplish this task.
And last but not least, God has enlarged his border in Siem Reap by adding a new soul to His kingdom. My brother in law, Sopheak, (Iya's brother) has finally decided to put on Christ in baptism. I am so happy and proud of him. I pray that he will be a faithful servant of God and be a good example to those around him.
