Thank You!

For those of you who have given financially to the ministry in Cambodia and the work of the C&MA around the world – THANK YOU! With the CO-VID 19 pandemic effecting so many financially, it’s not an easy thing to give, but I want to sincerely thank you for doing so. Your giving makes a difference. The six students who have graduated from the Antioch Bible Institute would not have done so without you. The outreaches that these students are doing in their communities will impact even more people. Two of our Antioch graduates have sent me pictures this week […]

Answered Prayers

What amazing prayer warriors you are! Before I sent out the prayer request to pray for the wound on Meng’s foot (a student at the Antioch school), the doctor told him that the infection had spread to the bone in his foot. But after you prayed, the doctor said the bone was not involved and his foot began to heal more quickly. It has not completely healed yet, but looks SO MUCH better (he’s been sending me pictures). Thank you for your prayers! Last week four of our students at the Antioch Bible Institute graduated from the two year program. […]

I’m back in PA!

Thank you so much for your prayers for my travels from Cambodia to Pennsylvania. The trip went very smoothly. Although it was weird to wear a mask the whole way, it was also nice to have the middle row on two of the flights all to myself. Nothing like stretching out on long flights. 🙂 It was also great to travel with my teammates, Jeff and Heather Williams – all the way to the USA. And a big thanks to Lorry, who picked me up at the airport! Although I was pretty busy right up until it was time to […]

Coming Home

On July 1st, I’ll be starting the trip back to Pennsylvania for my year of home assignment. What that year will look like is still unclear, but I’m happy to be returning to see family and friends again. Pray for my last days of packing, finishing up work and saying goodbye. I’d also appreciate your prayers for my travels. For the first time, I get to travel back to the USA with two of my teammates (for the first two flights). What a blessing! Pray that we are able to make it home without difficulties – as our flights have […]

June already?!

Time feels like it’s flying by quickly as I near the end of this term in Cambodia. I’ll be headed back to the United States on July 1st. It always seems like there is so much to do before you leave because you want to finish your work well, spend time with everyone you know, pack up your house, not to mention start thinking about what to share in the churches at home this coming year. Just a little bit of stress. 🙂 Thank you for your prayers for the students at the Antioch Bible Institute. The students who were […]

Heat, Hope and Housing

In this hot and humid time of year (average temperature in the 90’s), I am tempted to complain. However, research is showing that it’s just these conditions that limit the spread of Co-vid 19. There has not been any official cases in Cambodia for several weeks and we never really did see broad community transmission. Yea! for living in hot, tropical locations! Antioch Bible Institute opened for our six full-time students a few weeks ago and is in full swing, although with some limitations. We are not accepting part-time students and we have canceled ministry groups for the time being. […]

Update from Cambodia

Greetings from a very hot Cambodia.  It’s been around 90-100 degrees for a couple of weeks now.  I try not to complain, as some believe the heat actually slows down the spread of CoVid-19.  Still, the number of confirmed cases in Cambodia has increased to 114.  Unlike many of you, we do not yet have a “stay at home” order, but most people are limiting outings anyway, as well as wearing masks in public. Thank you for your prayers for the Antioch student whose brother was ill.  He has now recovered, and her family seems to be doing well.  Unfortunately, […]

Antioch Online

Thank you for your prayers! Know that you, too, are in my prayers. (In some ways, your challenges are greater than mine at the moment.) We are the body of Christ and wherever we are we need each other. The official cases of the corona virus in Cambodia have increased to over 50. One of the recent clusters of cases was from a group of Cambodians who just returned from an Islamic gathering in another country. As a result, the Cambodian government asked that all religious gatherings be stopped. This news, as well as, rumors of some areas of the […]

God is in Control

“God is on His throne. God is in control.” This what God was saying to us at the Cambodian CMA Mission’s recent Prayer Retreat. In the midst of the spread of COVID-19 around the globe, we need to be reminded that our anxiety and fear isn’t the most important thing. God is and always has been in control. How timely it was to receive this word, because the next day, two more cases of COVID-19 were confirmed, bringing the total to seven. There are likely many more than seven in Cambodia as they just don’t have the capacity to do […]

Unreached People

Thank you for your prayers for last week. Because three of the teachers were not available to teach I picked up three extra classes – two of which were three hours long. Although tiring, it was a good week. Several times during the week, I could sense your prayers. Your intercession is so important, so thank you! Last week also saw the start of a new ministry group focused on outreach to Muslims. One of the unreached people groups in Cambodia, the Cham, are a hard group to reach with the good news of Jesus. If they hear the name […]
