Update from Lisa Feb 2012

As I write “February” on the board each morning, I have to pinch myself and realize that it is actually February now. Having lived for 27 years in cold Canada, it is strange to be sweating and hot everyday in Cambodia! However, I thank God every day for the gift of warm weather and the…

Cambodian Harvest Jan 2012

Happy New Year!

Cambodian Action July 2011

Jesus made it clear that the Church would be built, and nothing would hold it back! The Great Commission lived out by the Apostles, as seen in the Book of Acts, points to a philosophy of ministry that focused on evangelism and discipleship but always connected to the local Church. Most of you know that…
