Meet Kandi Lay

Posted by Kandi on April 26th, 2011 | 11 comments

Greetings from Cambodia!

My name is Kandi Lay and I’ve been an international worker in Cambodia since 2004.  God is at work here and it’s been great to be a part of what He is doing!

I live in Poipet – a town in northwest Cambodia on the border with Thailand.  I’m part of the church team and we work with local and regional church leaders and the church groups in the Poipet area.  At the moment, most of my time is spent working with the youth at the Living Water and Andong Tmaa Mia Churches.  It sure is an adventure!

Thank you for your prayers and your support through the Great Commission Fund!

    Hi Kandy, Before you came home this last time you were to drive many miles to a youth meeting. Apparently you made it with out a hitch, but I really prayed for that trip, it seemed like such a big one for me cause I don’t make trips like that anymore.
    So good to be young and courageous, but I know you depend on the Lord too. We are thankful to God for you. Gratefully, Harriet

    Dear Kandi,

    Praising God for His hand on you and your work in Cambodia! It takes special grace to take on “youth”; I’m still struggling handling a great-niece (nearly 3) one day a week! Your example of living in the God-focus is a great help to me spiritually.
    With love for you and your precious charges there, and for Newville and Carlisle! Maybe I’ll get to visit Pennsyltucky next year.
    Love, prayers, hugs,
    Rhonda Mechtly

      Thank you for your encouraging words, Rhonda.
      I think you have your hands full with a three year old!
      I’m sure you’ll get back to PA for a visit – I heard once that although folks from PA leave, they always come back!
