Update from the Becks

Categories: Updates from the Beck Family

Dear Friends,

 

Quick update from the field here in Cambodia!

 

  • Praise God that the Lord continues to grow and mature Shalom Mission to Cambodia.  Shalom just launched a new school, Shalom International School, in Kandal Province which will prayerfully be a base for ministry and revenue in the future!
  • Pray for additional resources for Pastoral Support…perhaps you’d like to give towards a Shalom pastor (see attached picture of the Shalom Team)?
  • Praise God for the funds that have been given towards a new vehicle…..our reliable (Chines) van is just about at the end of its’ shelf life!  So far we’ve received $8,000 (praise God!) and are trusting the Lord for a total of $15,000 which will allow us to get something which will both serve our family and the ministry.  We have a designated Fund at ACTION (45601.G) if you’d like to participate.
  • Praise God that we’ve been able to support 24 orphans from Haley’s House to attend a local Christian school.  Special thanks to those who have invested in their future, we have funds to cover 2014!  Speaking of ministry to orphans…..if you haven’t seen John Waller’s video entitled “Orphan” you need to check it out!
  • Pray for the Wells returned from their  home assignment , it is good to have them back!
  • Pray for the International Council (see attached picture) of ACTION.  We will be meeting later this spring in Seattle for the purpose of strategic planning for the future.
  • Praise God the Translation Team is finishing up the last book in the Design for Discipleship Series, and has begun work on the Leadership Edition.
  • Pray for our family….we have officially entered the ‘next phase’ of life!  Mikaela is looking at colleges and financial aid paperwork J  Always covet your prayer as we shepherd M, Kam, CJ and Drew.
  • Pray for the Lopez family as they continue the process of obtaining paperwork for Boaz and Judah which will allow them to apply for a visa…and Lord willing a home assignment in 2014!
  • Pray for Lisa Hines as she continue to minister at Logos International School….you can pray specifically for Logos as they are in the midst of recruiting for next year (2014-15).
  • Praise and Prayer for the new campus that is being built for Asian Hope International School!  Trusting it will be ready by January 2015, you can check out the details here.
  • Pray for the ministry of Teen Challenge Cambodia, specifically for ACTION missionary Johnny Lalonde.  He is serving TCC in their vocational training ministry.

 

It is our joy and privilege to serve the people of Cambodia in the name of Christ (2 Cor. 4:5) and to partner with you in the Gospel ministry.  Thank you for your faithful prayers, support and encouragement.

 

In His Bonds,
