The day for the opening of the Urban Ministry Training Center is getting closer.  September 1st.  It looks like we’ll only have a few students this first year, but that’s ok, because it gives us more flexibility as we figure out how things will work.  But we still need your prayers!  This last week before the students arrive will be full of last minute purchases and preparations.  Pray that we get everything done that we need to.  And pray for the students who are all from other cities in Cambodia and so will have to adjust to life in Phnom Penh, as well as, the life of a student.

Our desire is to see God transform us (staff and students) and use us in His Kingdom work in Phnom Penh, so please also be praying that He leads us to the right ministry locations for this first year.  (Ministry locations are places where students will have opportunities to put into practice what they are learning.)

Thank you for joining us in this new adventure of training workers for the urban areas of Cambodia!


P.S.  Work on the residence building has stopped for the moment due to lack of funds.  If you’d like to contribute toward the building, please see below.

    Praying many blessings upon you and for the Lord’s direction on the selection of ministry locations!

    • Kandi says:

      Thanks, Neil. We have a couple of good options – places where people are open to the gospel, but don’t know much yet. Great places to minister. Pray that God shows us which are best for the students we have this year and for His Kingdom!

  3. Rick Shell says:

    Will continue praying for you and the students as you adapt to a new city and ministry.

    We will certainly pray for this, the first year of training of these precious Cambodian leaders. We will also give toward the building need. WE CHALLENGE EVERYONE WHO READS THIS NEWSLETTER TO GIVE TOWARD THE BUILDING!

    • Kandi says:

      Thanks Phil & Mary Ellen. We do need your prayers as we help this first year of students know Jesus and minister in His name. Thanks for promoting the building fund! 🙂 Although giving has slowed down, we trust God for His provision through generous folks like you!
