Cambodian Harvest July-Aug 2012

It’s been a busy couple of months! In June, we had a team from the Master’s College come out and serve for five weeks. They traveled to quite a few places in Cambodia and I joined them, along with my teammate BJ Lopez, in Preah Vihear (northern Cambodia) to minister with Pastor Somul’s church (He…

Cambodian Harvest May-June 2012

Being a part of a local church is not always easy. You can be deeply wounded by others, be frustrated with the direction the church is going, have personality conflicts, feel underfed and underappreciated, or just be plain tired-out. The Church, and each local expression, is full of problems because it is full of sinners…

Cambodian Harvest Jan 2012

Happy New Year! This past month has been a whirlwind of activity.  It started with the Shalom pastor’s training workshop, where Pastor Sopheak and I instructed several church leaders in the use of the Design for Discipleship books by the Navigators. I also taught two sessions on how to study the Bible—particulary on the relationship…

Cambodian Harvest Dec 2011

What is Christmas all about? In Cambodia, very few know the true meaning of Christmas, but many are interested.  This gives us a unique opportunity for the Gospel because we know what Christmas is about! The Shalom Churches (our ministry partners) have a Christmas outreach every year, targeting non-believers who are interested in hearing more…

Cambodian Harvest November 2011

We’ve arrived in Cambodia safe and sound, praise the Lord! The flight was uneventful (apart from a brief moment when I thought I had lost our passports), and the kids did great. We’ve been blessed to have Christiana’s mom here to help out during our transition back. Our first week flew by as we unpacked,…

Cambodian Harvest August-September 2011

We are now approaching the tail end of our time here in the States, and are expecting to meet our little boy any day! Thanks so much for your many prayers on our behalf! Please continue to pray for a smooth delivery for Christiana and the new little one. We wanted to place some needs…

Cambodian Harvest June-July 2011

We’ve been in the States for over a month now, and it’s been a whirlwind!  We’ve had a great time with friends and family in LA and in the Bay Area, and have also been enjoying sweet fellowship with our home church, West Hills Community Church.  Bethany, Christiana’s sister, gave birth to a beautiful baby…

Arrived Safely

We made it safely to Morgan Hill, California and tomorrow we will be heading down to the Resolved Conference in Southern California.  Thank you for your continued prayers for travel safety. Ava did well on the flight, though we are all a bit more tired than normal 🙂 We were able to get a cell…

Heading Stateside Tomorrow

Tomorrow morning we get on a long plane ride to California to begin our birth/furlough adventure!  We are looking forward to reuniting with family and friends and excited to share about what the Lord is doing in Cambodia.  Please keep us (as parents of an almost 2 year old) in your prayers for the flight…
