Thank you all for your prayers on our behalf – it has been quite a whirlwind! After about a month in Cambodia, packing up our life of eight years there and saying goodbyes, we arrived in Moscow, Idaho on September 7th. We were greeted by our friends who graciously invited some of their friends to help us move into our new place (I think it was the fastest unloading ever!). We definitely feel blessed to be here, although all the change has been overwhelming at times.
Our two oldest are attending a local Christian school, through a generous scholarship, and are enjoying the continuity of the experience as they attended a similar school in Cambodia. Would you pray specifically for them, that the Lord would grant them good friendships as they transition? Their world has drastically changed, and we also ask for prayer for us as we guide them through this new season.
Nathan found a co-working space downtown about a mile from our home, where he continues working remotely with our translation team in Cambodia. The Jesus Storybook Bible is currently at the printer in Singapore and Lord willing, will be delivered to Cambodia by the first of the year! One of our latest projects is a book refuting the Prosperity Gospel entitled Prosperity?, which we are praying will be a powerful tool used by the Lord to strengthen his church in Cambodia.
Nathan will also be taking his first trip to Cambodia November 1st-13th for two special weddings. Both Bora and Ro, two of the men who work with him in translation, are getting married within ten days of each other. Please pray specifically for a safe and profitable trip as well as for Christiana and the kids while Nathan is away.
We are truly thankful for your continued prayer and support of our ministry and pray the Lord continues to bless each one of you as you faithfully serve him.
Because He lives,
Nathan and Christiana
- Praise for safe travels as we re-located to Idaho
- Praise for God’s provision through his people, enabling us to continue ministering to the people of Cambodia from afar
- Prayer for our family as we continue to adjust to life here in the States
- Prayer for the printing and shipment of The Jesus Storybook Bible
- Prayer for renewed strength and health for our family
- Prayer for Nathan’s upcoming trip to Cambodia this November
The cost of moving our lives from both Cambodia and California and setting up our home in Idaho ended up being more than we expected and we are in need of raising additional support to help cover the costs. Would you prayerfully consider partnering with us in this way?
