It’s All About Him!

“The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore.”
Psalm 121: 8

After many months of cleaning, sorting and packing, the past few weeks have been like a whirlwind for us! We had several get togethers with extended family, friends, church folks and neighbors. We thank and praise the Lord for the outpourings of love through potluck meals, well-wishes, prayers, cards, gifts, etc. Though emotional to say goodbye to everybody, we are grateful to our Lord for His love and goodness expressed through every individual.

One of the greeting cards that touched our hearts was a handmade card from the children of our home church, Christ Central Church.

We praise and thank the Lord for His grace, wisdom, and strength and for sustaining us over the past few months in the most challenging and difficult time of transition. Changes are not usually easy. Moving house, especially international moving is not fun. But we thank and praise our Lord for everyone who gives to our ministry and for everyone who prays for us so we could serve Him. It is a privilege and honor to serve our Lord and to be called by Him. We also thank everyone who helped us in practical ways such as transporting items to storage, and those who helped in other ways.   

Again, it’s all about Him, our Lord Jesus Christ, the very first missionary, who came from His heavenly home to earth.

This is not the end, but just the beginning of a new adventure –  Jesus’ Call to His Harvest Field, Adventures in the Mission Field

Part 2 – In Singapore

Salvation Army, Singapore
Sentosa, Singapore

We started our long journey from Alabama on February 27th, going first to Houston, then to San Francisco and arriving in Singapore on March 3rd. While staying at the Retreat Center of Salvation Army, the Lord encouraged us with the words written on the wall: “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” (Exodus 33:14)

While attending a church there on Sunday morning, again the Lord encouraged us through His words:

“The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore.”
(Psalm 121:8)

Singapore is an interesting place, a melting pot of all kinds of people in Asia. We saw many people from different backgrounds; Islamic people perhaps from Indonesia and Malaysia. There were also people from Hindu backgrounds, Buddhists, Christians, and perhaps people from non-religious backgrounds. We enjoyed a couple of days as we recouped from our long journey.

Part 3 – Cambodia

On March 6th, we finally arrived in the city of Phnom Penh.

We received a warm welcome from FEBC Voice of Love.

It’s nice to reconnect with the staff and workers of Voice of Love Cambodia (FEBC Cambodia). We are touched by their warm welcome, as they presented us with a nice gift of a purple shawl with the official logo of the ministry and with matching white flower-garlands.

Again, we praise and thank the Lord for His faithfulness, for His love and kindness He has shown through our families, friends, neighbors, and church family. We are grateful also for each and everyone who prays and supports our ministry so we can serve Him.

In a recent message we heard, we were reminded that Mission is worship.  It’s all about God, His heart for people from every nation and every tongue, to know Him and His love for them. And for them to worship Him.

We would appreciate your prayers as we adjust to a new culture, as we apply for a visa extension, and as we look for housing. Please pray also for wisdom and fruitfulness as we share the love of Christ in Cambodia. Thank you all, and our Lord Jesus bless you all!
