In Memory of Tawn Lork

As we complete the final week of 2010, please remember to pray for the Lork family in Cambodia. Chann and Sokchea Lork’s brother, Tawn, died after injuries received in a motorcycle accident over the weekend.

Chann and Sokchea have been instrumental in the work of the International Bible Institute of Siem Reap, an extension of the Bear Valley Bible Institute of Denver. Their efforts have been vital in the development of the school and also the work of the church in the northern area of Cambodia.

Tawn was on his way to evangelize the Preah Vihear province in Cambodia. Chann, Sokchea and Tawn have all been involved in the development of the Lord’s church in Cambodia. Tawn will be greatly missed by friends, family and his spiritual brothers and sisters in Cambodia and around the world. Pray for their family during this time. 

The loss of Tawn is a reminder of the fragile nature of physical life. It reminds us of the value of each precious soul and the glory of an Almighty God who has prepared a place for His people. The provision God has made through His Son, Jesus the Christ, gives hope of a far better reward than can be received in this life. For this reason, we labor and serve to help others know this same hope.

We weep with the Lork family in the loss of a son, brother, husband and father. We also rejoice in the victory Tawn has achieved in crossing over to the promise of our wonderful Savior. We should remember the words of Paul, “your labor is not in vain in the Lord,” 1 Corinthians 15:58. Tawn’s work was certainly not in vain and has impacted many.

Final Thoughts

We are pressing ahead into 2011 with plans for greater growth in training men to preach the gospel. With 15 schools, we will be working to make sure each location has the provisions needed to be successful in teaching each student.

As we close for the year, we want to tell each of you how much you are appreciated. The development and success of Extension Training depends on the generosity demonstrated by you.  

Thank you for seeing the benefit of this work. 
Thank you for praying for the success of each location. 
Thank you for stepping up with the financial assistance needed.
Thank you for filling specific roles needed in coordinating, teaching, and encouraging everyone involved.
Thank you! 

I pray “God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”

God bless
