February 2019 Update

Hello dear friends and family around the world! Just wanted to fill you in on our highlights since our last update and what we’ve been up to:

  • We MOVED homes mid-December! We still live on our YWAM campus, but we are now are in a 3-bedroom apartment, so we have a home office/guest room too. So grateful for this season and the beautiful home we get live in, with our kids attending English school in the morning on-site at Cornerstone Learning Center, and then Khmer school in the afternoon in the community.
  • We as a campus hosted the ALLC(Asian Leaders Learning Community) Leadership Summit in January 2019. Over 180 Asian YWAM leaders from our region came together for 4 days of intentional training and learning, to equip us to become more effective leaders in our specific locations. Take a look at the video below that shows what our 4 days were about!

Prayer Requests:

1) We have a full schedule ahead for the rest of the year. Pray for God’s sufficient grace to cover our family during our normally full schedule.

2) For us as a family to continue to have a passion for Jesus, Cambodia and thrive in where God has placed us.

3) Continued wisdom as we move forward in the construction of our campus development. Currently building 3 additional dorm buildings and our turf and grass soccer fields.

4) That we would continue to move by the Spirit in all that we do, trusting in the impossible and raising up the next generation of Cambodian Christians to make an impact in all sectors of society for the sake of the Gospel

THANK YOU FOR YOUR LOVE, ENCOURAGEMENT, FINANCIAL SUPPORT, AND BELIEF in our family to do life here in Cambodia, for the Gospel to move forth in this place! We could not do what we do without your partnership with us and we cannot emphasize and thank you enough for all the ways you have been a part of our journey. Our start to the year has been full and ABUNDANT  and life-giving because of all of your love and financial support for our family!
