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 country not allowing people to enter, caused us to rethink our plans to keep Antioch Bible School open (as we didn’t want to see students unable to get home to their families). We continued classes through Wednesday of last week and the students headed home on Thursday and Friday.
We are now investigating creative ways to finish up the classes for the trimester. In fact, in just a half an hour, I’ll be teaching my first class over the internet (using Messenger). I’m not at all techie, but seems it’s time to learn. (Even the Cambodian Church that I’m involved with had their service on Sunday using the app ‘Zoom.’)
Please continue to pray for the Antioch School as we try to finish up classes long distance. And pray for our students.
One of the students returned home to find her younger brother sick with symptoms consistent with the virus. This has caused much fear and anxiety in her and her family. Pray that she can show her trust in God as she cares for and loves her unbelieving parents and siblings.
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus the author and perfector of our faith! (Hebrews 12:2)
