Due to the challenge of COVID 19, the church in Takeo was closed but when it reopened our team went to see the church. When we went to the church we did not expect too many people to be ready for the service but in fact when we arrived there were many families, children and youth waiting for us and eager to hear the Word.
There is a small parcel of land that we are now using for the church (previously the church as meeting at the Teacher’s house) and this is slowly being set up so it can be used for services and meetings. For the moment, we have a small tent (like a marque) that is being used for us to meet under.
I also was able to take some clothes and other things to the church so they could be distributed to the children there.
Besides being the coordinator for EEC (Singapore) here in Cambodia, you now have responsibility to be a Teacher’s Assistant (TA) for the weekly online Zoom training sessions that EEC has with the students in Cambodia. This TA work includes doing attendance, setting up breakout rooms, and other Zoom activities to help the teacher and the students.
There are a lot of challenges for students to finish their course because of the COVID situation which has put a lot of pressure with time and organization for students and teachers. There are also challenges that the students face at home with family and other time commitments that make it difficult for students to do assignments and to have the time available for their weekly online classrooms. Pray for the students that they will be able to manage their time better to meet the requirements of the course.

On a personal note, pray for daily health and protection as I travel back and forth to work and as I participate in various events and activities.
In March I moved to a new house and this is a great blessing. The room that I moved from was one I had lived at for over 12 years so it is a big change to be in a new place.
There is lots of adjusting because it is a lot further away from where I work and there are not so many conveniences near this house like I had at my previous place. When I moved into the house I invited my Pastor and his wife and a few other of my Christian brothers and sisters to come to the house so we could pray for God’s blessings on the house and His protection.
This house is dedicated to the Lord and this is why it was important to have others join me in praying God’s blessing and protection on the house.
