Happy Thanksgiving to my brothers and sisters around the world! I hope you enjoy your time with your family and reflect upon the source of all good things, God, (James 1:17) and give Him the thanks that He deserves on a daily basis!
The church here in Siem Reap has a lot to be thankful for in this month. First and foremost, we want to thank God for adding Sopheak and Virak to His kingdom, giving them new life and saving them from their sins. We also want to thank the University church of Christ in Phnom Penh for organizing such a powerful camp in dealing with how to have a successful family and marriage. The church in Siem Reap benefited much and relationships have strengthened because of the camp.
We want to thank our supporters who financially gave to us to make the camp possible and also to help renovate our school grounds and do other various benevolent and evangelistic work that helps us to grow spiritually. We are thankful for the International Bible Institute of Siem Reap in continuing to produce capable, sound, men of God's word to preach and teach the lost in this part of the world. We are thankful for the children of Hannah's Hope who provide us the opportunity to show God's love to them and to grow them in the nourishment of His word.
Last, but certainly not least, we are thankful for all our 'behind the scenes' givers, those who take Matthew 6:1-4 literally. We appreciate you and thank you so much for your selfless acts time and time again for the betterment of His kingdom. We love you and ask God to continue to shower greater blessings upon people like you. You are truly the unsung heroes and are laying up treasures in heaven (Matt 6:19-21).
Students of IBISR served the children of Hannah's Hope on Thanksgiving! We had chicken legs, ribs, clams, shish kebobs, sweet potatoes, red snappers, tangerines, apples, and leechee fruit! It was a bountiful meal and everybody was full that night!
