We just spent the last nine days at Asian
Hope, a home consisting of 29 Cambodian children from the ages of 7
to 20 years old. They come from provinces all over Cambodia and
each have incredible stories and testimonies of how God has
intervened in their lives especially over the last seven years
(www.asianhope.org). We, Andrea and all six of our children, had an
exciting and full week and a half of getting to know the kids a
We thank God for the ability and the
strength He supplied in order for us to serve Him in this unique
way. We were blessedbeyond measure! We are currently partnering
with this organization to meet the needs of these trophies of
Christ. There are many ministry opportunities in this arena, are
you looking for a way to pour out your heart in service and worship
to the Lord, for His glory? Contact us if you are interested in
serving in this way. Please pray the Lord would raise up a
multitude of workers to labor among His fields.
The Ministry of Social Affairs is still
holding out and requiring a substantial ‘fee’ for their
stamp of approval, literally, to travel with the children in our
care. Our current plan is to move ahead and go directly to the
American embassy without the requested approval from the Ministry
of Social Affairs. We are at peace as we wait and pursue His will
in this situation. We know He is in control of it all and trust
that His will will be done and we praise Him for the grace He has
given us to watch His divine plan unfold in His timing.
Wa has developed a bone infection in his
leg and his immune system continues to get weaker and weaker. He
has found a home for two of his four children and is seeking a
place for his three year old son and twelve year old daughter.
Please pray that the Lord of the Harvest would raise up a family
that would show them the love and compassion of Christ. Please
continue to pray for Wa as his faith is new and in the providence
of God, he is experiencing great trials as his life on earth is
nearing its end. Pray that he would know the Lord’s presence
and peace in the midst of preparing his children for his death.
Please pray for our family as we minister to Wa and his family in
the midst of all of this, that we would live for and do the will of
Blessings on you!
To God be the Glory,
BJ and Andrea Lopez
