Updates from the Wells Family

Cambodian Harvest May 2011

May has been a busy month!  We had the opportunity to teach the youth at Shalom Church Phnom Penh on the topic of Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (Christiana with the young ladies, and I with the young men).  It was Christiana’s first experience teaching here, and she did a great job.  What a joy to…

Cambodian Harvest March-April 2011

For those of you who didn’t know already —we are expecting, and it’s a boy! With the coming birth of our new baby, we’ve decided to take a combined birth/furlough in the States. This will allow us to be close to our loved ones, to share in this special time, re-connect with partners and develop…

Baby Plans

Dear Friends and Family, With the coming birth of our new baby, we’ve decided to do a combined birth/furlough in the States, from the end of June/early July through October of this year.  Previously, giving birth in Thailand seemed like the best option, but with the baby’s due date (Sept. 5th) so close to our…

Exciting News

Greetings from Cambodia! We have some exciting news! For those of you who have not heard yet—we’re pregnant!  The due date is early September.  We would greatly appreciate your prayers for Christiana and our unborn child.  Pray that we would lean on the Lord for peace and trust in His providence completely throughout each phase…

Cambodian Harvest Jan-Feb 2011

One year ago, we left America to serve the Lord in Cambodia. It has been a full twelve months in more ways than one!  We thank the Lord for His many blessings and look forward to what He has in store in 2011! Here’s a brief glimpse of the past year in pictures: Read more……

Merry Christmas from the Wells!

Merry Christmas! We pray that you all have a wonderful Christmas season as we remember the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Christmas in Cambodia gives some unique opportunities for sharing the Gospel because very few Cambodian’s know the true meaning of Christmas and most are very interested to learn.  Last Friday we…

Cambodian Harvest December 2010

The last time we wrote our December newsletter, we were one month away from leaving for Cambodia.  The reality of our having left our homeland is especially apparent as I sit down to write this. The holidays are always ahard time for missionaries, and this year particularly so, since it is our first away from…

Pray for Hope in the Midst of Tragedy

On Monday night, November 22, 2010, over 350 Cambodians were killed in a stampede as 6-8,000 people tried to cross a small bridge to Diamond Island during the annual Water Festival in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.  This was the world’s deadliest stampede since August 2005 (in Baghdad, Iraq). The details of how or why the bridge…

Cambodian Harvest November 2010

This past month, Christiana’s parents and her sister and brother-in-law came out for a visit.  Ava also celebrated her first birthday, and it was such a joy to have family at the party.  We were also blessed by the many friends, both Khmer and Expat, who were able to attend. Our language tutoring continues—just the…

Cambodian Harvest September-October 2010

Our family was privileged to participate in the Shalom Summer Camp this past month.  This camp is Khmer speaking (unlike the English summer camp in July), and so the language barrier was evident, but God poured out His grace on us.  Thank you for all your prayers—they were definitely felt!  I was asked to teach…
