The Gospel Continues to Spread Out

The Covid-19 pandemic hit so suddenly we had no time to prepare. All of our outreach plans had to be canceled, and there were no more gatherings at church or traveling to local church leaders’ conferences. So although this was a surprise to us – it wasn’t to our Lord – and the Gospel is continuing to spread out even more widely than before. Over one hundred thousand workers from Thailand lost their jobs after they returned to Cambodia to visit their families during the Khmer New Year, and now they cannot return to work. More than 100 factories shut down and even more people in the country lost jobs. The low income earners, who collect plastic for recycling, also have no income to pay their bills, rent, and even food, due to the recycling company closing. This brings our Cambodian Government a lot of concern, but by the grace of the Lord we are able to carry out relief work by giving out food packages to various communities.

Gospel Reaching into Buddhist Pagodas

During the last two weeks we have been working closely with local Governors to bring food to different communities and even organize relief aid inside the Buddhist pagodas. This gave us the opportunity to also meet the two head monks to share with them the reason we are doing this relief work.

The Lord gave me a scripture:

Matthew 6:26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

It is so true that our God is the God who created the universe and all of us; He loves taking care of all of us through His churches. His name is Jesus.I was able to share these words inside the pagodas in front of monks, Governors from the Ministry of Religion, and a crowd of about 150 people. The Cambodian Christian leaders also come to support us. This is a miracle and has only been done by our God. To Jesus be all the glory.

 

 

Thanks to your generous giving over the past year, Mr Huy and our Derek Prince Ministries team in Cambodia have been able to provide Derek’s books free of charge at numerous training seminars for pastors and Christian leaders.
 

Cambodia experienced its darkest time during the Khmer Rouge regime from 1975 to 1979 when more than two million educated people were killed. Educated elderly people are now very rare and so precious in this country. Today, fifty percent of the Cambodian population are younger than 22 years old – that is a staggering figure! And this young generation desperately need mature Christians and sound Bible teaching material to train them.

Thanks to your generous giving over the past year, Mr Huy and our Derek Prince Ministries team in Cambodia have been able to provide Derek’s books free of charge at numerous training seminars for pastors and Christian leaders, along with holding several evangelistic outreaches and equipping Bible college graduates with gift packs of Derek’s books. These are vital resources for these young leaders who otherwise would have extremely limited access to Bible teaching material.

One such young leader is Sokleap, who is a youth and worship leader at his church. Sokleap leads Sunday School classes, youth classes and cell groups. Huy and team have ensured that Sokleap’s church received copies of Derek’s Khmer books and proclamation cards. Through Derek’s teaching, Sokleap tells us he has received many revelations from God’s Word – including "how to live in the Kingdom"; "how to hear from God and know His priorities"; and "how to appropriate healing and God’s promises for us today". His faith has grown so much stronger through these invaluable resources and he now bases his class lessons on the truths he has learned. Derek’s teaching is truly making a difference in many young lives in Cambodia today!

A significant way in which the Derek Prince Ministries Cambodia team distributes Derek’s Khmer teaching material is by holding evangelistic and pastor/leader training sessions throughout the nation. One of these events involved partnering with the New Life Church at Kompong Thom Province. An evangelistic meeting was held for 150 village people where the Gospel was preached and each person received their own personal copy of Extravagant Love. A further 50 sets were gifted to local pastors who will follow up with the villagers and disciple them. Romans 10:14 asks us the question, How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? DPM-Cambodia takes this responsibility seriously.

In the year ahead DPM-Cambodia are planning to hold at least five pastor training seminars and five evangelistic meetings in different parts of Cambodia. In order to do this, we need to reprint nine Derek Prince Khmer titles, costing a total of  NZ$13,000. In addition, we also need to cover travel and distribution costs. Your gift of $25, $50, $100 or more would be a great help in making this possible. Would you please consider partnering with us so that we can put Derek’s Khmer books into the hands of thousands of pastors, leaders and believers?
