So much has taken place since my last post! In short, medical clinics in 5 different villages provided the catalyst for the Gospel to be shared, with nearly 300 accepting Jesus as their personal Savior and around 60 baptized in the Holy Spirit praying in other tongues. God is faithful and He is good! But there is so much more. read more…

We’re just really getting started here in Cambodia, but already so much has taken place that I thought it would be worthy of letting you know how your prayers are being answered…and so that you know some ways to continue praying while we’re here. read more…
Look out, Cambodia! There’s a team coming to see you! On October 30th, Joseph & Shannon Coenen will join Bill Eng and a medical team from Circle of Love Foundation to minister to both body and soul. Over the course of two weeks, they will minister in 5 different villages as they treat the ill, pray with the lost and train church leaders.
Please be praying for this outreach from Oct. 30 – Nov. 12th.
Amidst sometimes violent political unrest, outreach ministries have not ceased and the Gospel message is going forth to outlying villages. Work also continues on an updated translation of the Bawm Bible that will correct issues in the previous one. The Mercy Home & School, located in a Muslim village is having positive impact on the community and also providing care for a group of orphans.
Please pray for a young girl named Rebecca. She is critically ill and little is known as to what is causing the illness. More experienced medical care is unavailable at this time, so please pray for a miracle.
The orphanage we helped build is nearly complete and the children are settling in nicely, enjoying the MUCH safer and expanded accommodations. They are trying to finish the dining room and kitchen, which will cost $10,000.
There is also a pastor and family who have had tremendous success reaching the Buddhist community around them. The house they rent is being sold — where the family resides, where 8 orphans have refuge, and the 50-member church meets. Not too far away is a house for sale for $16,000 but is beyond their budget.
Will you please pray for these situations and consider investing in the lives of these orphans or Myanmar church workers?
