Our Summer Photo Roll

In the last 2 months, we have hit the ground running since being back from the States. Here are some highlights of what has been going on since being back:

1) The GRAND RE-OPENING of Cafe Eden at our new downtown Battambang hub location. Cafe Eden has already been opened for the last 4 years, employing about 20 jobs at any given time to give locals a chance to be trained in the hospitality/service industry and use their salary to support their families and further their education. We have also been able to use the profits from Cafe Eden to pour back into supporting missions in Cambodia, specifically supporting Cambodian missionaries as well as to other countries as well.

2) Our 5th School of Biblical Studies(9 month Inductive bible school) graduated with 17 students in mid-June. Garth had the privilege of teaching several books of the Bible in this past school that graduated.

3) Garth was invited to be the guest speaker for a national staff conference for our organization in a near-by country that is closed to the Gospel. We as a family joined the conference and were able to connect, encourage, and challenge our friends that work in these parts of the world.

Last week we were in a nearby closed country, as Garth was the guest speaker for their national staff conference for our organization there.
