We at River of Life Church ministry say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We are so grateful to you for your commitment in supporting both prayer and finance to help proclaim the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ effectively in Cambodia. We give thanks to the Lord for His faithfulness in providing strength and support through the leading of the Holy Spirit. We also have been greatly encouraged by your faithful support. Thank you so much! Every aspect of your partnership with us truly makes a difference!
I wanted to share about a tragedy that happened with one of our church planters and pastors in the East region of Cambodia and ask prayer for his family. He was 74 years old and became ill. He was transported to a hospital in Phnom Penh and passed away two days later. He had been with us for almost 20 years, very loyal and committed to the ministry and helped plant many churches with us. We lost one of our very fine men in our ministry. Please pray for God to comfort his wife, 10 children and their spouses, 28 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren who are still here.
Also, several of our church planters are having medical challenges. For Pastor C’s diabetes condition is worsening and he has an infection on his feet. Please pray for him. Another pastor is having stomach issues while another has severe fatigue. These conditions prevent them from traveling far. Your prayers are much needed for these precious leaders.
For a more positive note — Another leader on our church planter team in the East region shared the following:
“The monthly support that I am receiving is helping my family with food cost and other necessities. I can travel more to preach the Gospel and to plant more churches in my region. Thank you for enabling me to bring the Gospel to the lost in the remote villages in my region.”
We sincerely covet your prayers as partners in ministry. Without it we simply could not do what we do in the nation of Cambodia.
