Yesterday the Lord had given me a verse from 1 Chronicles 4:10 ---it was the prayer of Jabez ---10 Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request. I was using this verse to pray for our RAP staff and for Ratanak's work here in Cambodia and it was this same verse, I felt the Lord saying---share this with New Born Church. Little did I know that the words the Lord had given me would be words that He too had spoken to Channary's dad about. It was not something we had planned together, but it seemed the Holy Spirit had directed us both to share something similar. I always love it when the Lord orchestrates events in such ways for in the end He gets the glory!

I am thankful to the Lord for these opportunities He gives me. It is such moments that remind me afresh what a privilege it is to be in this country at this time. It is a privilege to pray for God's people, for churches like this who have endured much and who continue to stand firm despite the challenges. It is a privilege to be planting seeds in God's vineyards here in Cambodia. It is a privilege to spend time with Khmer Christians here who are seeking to serve the Lord and share His love with their own people!
