Our 30 weeks in Cambo-dia is quickly coming toan end. I have the daunt-ing task of trying to sumup our trip in this lastnewsletter, which, is im-possible.Our dream of ministeringthe Gospel in the 10/40Window (the least Chris-tianized area in theworld) became reality.The area from 10-40 de-grees north of the equa-tor, which stretches fromNorthern Africa throughto Japan is what we knowas the 10/40 Window. Ithouses the least Christi-anized nations on theplanet. It has long been agoal of mine to come hereand tell people of whatJesus did for them 2000yrs ago.Cambodia’s population is95% Buddhist (much of itnominal though), andChristianity is seen asthe ‘white man’s religion’.But true Christianity haslittle to do with the formof religion expressed inmany churches today. Allreligions of today arecentered on pursuingsomething, while Christi-anity, in it’s most basic,pure form, is about what’spursuing us………Jesus.It’s about a God wholoved us so much that Heforgave the awful thingswe have done to Him, andeach other. Many haveforgotten God, but He hasnot forgotten them.Conversion to an alter-nate religion is not whatthe millions of Cambodi-ans need. Their needs arethe same as ours. To finda purpose, and a destinythat is ultimately fulfilledin knowing the God whowas completely revealedto us in Jesus Christ.Jesus came so that wemight know God. We takethis message for grantedin the Western World. Inthe 10/40 Window, it is amessage that has notbeen fully heard. Millionswait for those who willabandon their lives totake up their cross andlive in obedience to thefinal command Jesusgave us.
Go into all theworld and preach the gospel to all creation.(Mark 16:15 nasb)

Theharvest is large, but thereare few workers to gatherit in. (Matthew 9:37 gnb)

“If the Tiber floodsthe city, or if theNile refuses torise, or if the skywithholds its rain,if there is anearthquake, a fam-ine, a pestilence,at once the cry israised: ‘Christiansto the lion.’”
- fromTertullian’s
In regards to early Christiansbeing labelled as atheists,seeing as they refused to wor-ship the gods of Rome. Suchbehaviour would have beenindicative for the gods becom-ing angry.
