News from Cambodia

Kent and Becky Good, who have been serving as missionaries overseas since 1979, living in Cambodia since 2004, sent us an update today with a beautiful glimpse of what God is doing among believers in Cambodia and CMP (Cambodian Ministry Partners).

Living in a country where more than 95% of the population practices Buddhism, a small group of Christians living outside the city of Battambang has been meeting together for worship services for many years led by CMP Symean and his family, whom Grace Church supports.  Becky wrote, “yesterday (Oct. 26) was quite a momentous occasion in the history of this work: baptisms” Following a message on the meaning of baptism in the life of a follower of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit moved in the hearts of this small group of believers.

A five kilometer drive out into the rice fields brought them all to their destination: a new irrigation ditch. There, 25 believers were baptized as their brothers and sisters in Christ joyously looked on as they made this public declaration to live for Jesus.

Praise God for the growing number of believers and increasing passion for Christ in Cambodia!

Here are some upcoming events, Kent and Becky have asked us to pray for:

November 2-7: CMP Family Retreat-Dave and Sue Guiles will be their specials guests. Please pray for God’s blessing on them during this time together.
