A New Year, A New Trimester

As a friend recently said, “Where did January go?”
Thank you for your continued prayers for me and the work in Cambodia. Sorry you haven’t heard from me for a while, but I was having computer issues and then Antioch school started again and time raced by so fast, it’s February already.
The 2nd trimester of the Antioch Bible Institute is going well. This trimester I’m teaching Personal Spiritual Development (AKA Spiritual Disciplines), The Life and Letters of Paul (2nd missionary journey) and English and continuing to do the financial books for the school. Doesn’t sound like much, but it keeps me busy. Pray for the students. Pray that God will reveal Himself to them and show them the parts of their lives that are not yet surrendered to Him. Ask that God would give wisdom to the teachers to help in this process of growth.
Pray for strength, energy and wisdom for the coming week – Feb 3-9. It’s going to be a particularly busy week since three of our teachers will be unavailable to teach and the rest of us are picking up lots of extra classes.
And please continue to pray about the need for another Cambodian teacher couple. There will be five of us leaving between June and August and the remaining teachers will need at least one more teacher couple to keep the school running.
I’ve also been trying to give more time to the young adult church that I’ve been a part of this term – Christ Love’s Mission Church. The church committee (or board) just started a weekly small group for just the committee. They are using the first few months of 2020 to figure out what it means to grow in faith and care for one another in this small group. In a few months, we hope to divide the group into two and invite other church members and friends to join. The vision is to create multiplying small groups. Pray for the leaders of the church to get on board with this vision and grow a bigger heart for the lost around them. Small group ministry can be an effective way to reach out and show the love of Jesus to many disconnected young adults in the city.
And for you dog lovers, my dog, Luna, will be expecting a litter of puppies around Valentine’s Day. It’s a whole new adventure for me!
