Merry Christmas! We wanted to take the time to say thank you to all of you who so faithfully pray for us, and support our family as we minister here in Cambodia. We are blessed beyond measure!
Being that it is the Christmas season, we would like to put three giving opportunities before you, to prayerfully consider as the year comes to an end.
1) Sponsor Shalom International School Repair Shalom’s catch-up school recently had significant damage done to the property because of heavy rains and the school needs to raise enough to build a strong retaining wall to keep back the erosion. The total cost is estimated to be $15,000. This school is bringing the light of the Gospel to a small impoverished community, but without these repairs they are in danger of closing.
2) Sponsor children-at-risk education Each year we sponsor fourteen at-risk children so that they can receive a high-quality Christian education. The cost is $50 per-student per-month (about $9,000 a year).
3) Sponsor printing of PlovPit.com booklets Early last year we launched a new Cambodian Christian blog at plovpit.com (ផ្លូវពិត in Khmer, which means “The True Way”). We also plan to print the most popular articles in booklet form about four times a year. Total cost per year is $3,000.
We pray that the Lord blesses you this Christmas season with joy and peace, resting in the birth of our wonderful Savior.
Ava, Paton and John
