Merry Christmas! We wanted to take the time to say thank you to all of you who so faithfully pray for us, and

support our family as we minister here in Cambodia. We are blessed beyond measure!
Being that it is the Christmas season, we would like to put three giving opportunities before you, to prayerfully consider as the year comes to an end.
1) Sponsor Shalom International School Repair Shalom’s catch-up school
recently had significant damage done to the property because of heavy rains and
the school needs to raise enough to build a strong retaining wall to keep back the
erosion. The total cost is estimated to be $15,000. This school is bringing the light of
the Gospel to a small impoverished community, but without these repairs they are in
danger of closing.

2) Sponsor children-at-risk education Each year we sponsor fourteen at-risk
children so that they can receive a high-quality Christian education. The cost is $50
per-student per-month (about $9,000 a year).

3) Sponsor printing of booklets Early last year we launched a new Cambodian
Christian blog at (ផ្លូវពិត in Khmer, which means “The True Way”). We also plan to print
the most popular articles in booklet form about four times a year. Total cost per year is $3,000.

Prayer Corner:
• Pray that the Christmas Outreaches
throughout Cambodia will bear lasting
Gospel fruit.
• Praise that we are printing the second
edition of Fifty Reasons Why Jesus
Came to Die this month!

We pray that the Lord blesses you this Christmas season with joy and peace,
resting in the birth of our wonderful Savior.

• Pray for renewed health as our family
has been battling various illnesses.
• Pray that the Lord would see fit to
add new believers to our fellowship at
Shalom Church.
• Pray as the elders at Shalom Phnom
Penh plan for the upcoming year, that
God would grant wisdom and strength.
