Gathering of all the small groups that our staff facilitate and going through the book together called “Knowing God.” Over 50 people from our community that are either new believers or seeking about Jesus that are involved in our small groups!

In the last 2 months we've sent out 2 of our staff, Sokuen and Saroat, and their baby boy Ponlue, as missionaries to Preah Vihear province, which is the most unreached province in Cambodia. They've been on staff with us for 8 years and are some of the most FAITHFUL servants. They've had a dream to start a new ministry there for 5+ years!

In January, we’ve sent out 2 of our staff, Sokuen and Saroat, and their baby boy Ponlue, as missionaries to Preah Vihear province, which is the most unreached-to-the-Gospel province in Cambodia. They’ve been on staff with us for 8 years and are some of the most FAITHFUL servants. They’ve had a dream to start a new ministry there for 5+ years and now are reaching out to youth and have started a small group for husband/wives so they can have healthy, Godly marriages/families!

Sharing with our all our small groups. So amazed to see our Christian and non-Christian friends in the community come together each Sunday for small groups to journey together about learning about who God is.

Recent time of worship at our new campus!

Recent time of worship at our new campus! Our architects from the ministry “100 Fold Studios” out of YWAM Montana, have had a few of their architects come to be with us to help with our campus development for 3 months. We break ground on the first building this week!

 

Updates/Prayer Requests:

1) We have 2 baby boys born, Visot and Calvin, to our staff families. Please pray for healthy babies and recovery for both mothers, Sineout and Meiling.

2) Caroline had the privilege of sharing with our School of Ministry Development on “The Un-offendable Heart,” and she is thankful that God continues to use this teaching close to her heart to be able to continually learn from it as well as share it with others.

3)Garth taught in our School of Biblical Studies the books of 1 and 2 Samuel. He just got back from trip to a nearby closed-to-the-Gospel country to teach the book of Hosea and staff training/development.

4)Please pray for our family’s upcoming break to the States this spring. Pray for refreshment, clear vision, and great times with our loved ones!

Love from the Gustafson Family!
