Bj & Andrea Lopez Update

We had a glorious day celebrating the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ with our Cambodian brothers and sisters from the two Shalom churches in  Phnom Penh and three churches from the province! This combined service gave our team the opportunity to proclaim the Resurrection to these churches as never before.   BJ led a bilingual time of worship with Pastor Sopheak and Daren followed it up with a powerful resurrection message from the Word of God!

 

This is truly a praiseworthy event that we hope will be the first of many to come because Easter  is not  typically celebrated nor understood in Cambodia,  even among the  Christians. In Cambodia, not unlike the rest of the world, we love to celebrate the birth of Christ and get caught up in the hoopla that surrounds the worldly meaning of Christmas.  However, Easter isn’t a  holiday that generally practices gift giving and  thereby tends to be misunderstood and under celebrated.  It is however, the most important holiday we as Christians celebrate…the death and resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ; the  celebration of the greatest gift of all…our salvation provided by the Perfect Lamb of God!  Therefore, with the proclamation of the Word and the praise  and worship of the Resurrected King Jesus, and  the sweet fellowship it provided causes our hearts to rejoice in Him who is faithful to magnify His name among the nations!

Thank you for your partnership in this gospel ministry that allows us to be witnesses of His grace and light in this dark place. May you have a blessed Easter as you celebrate His resurrection!

 

To  God be  the glory,
