2016 June Mid Year Report

Mid-Year Report of God’s Amazing Grace

Dear Friends & Partners,
At the beginning of the year we wrote about the vision for 2016:

1. The grand opening for the secondary school;

2. Evangelistic campaigns to win more souls for the Kingdom of God in Cambodia;

3. Opening of Bible College for equipping of the saints with the Word of God and practical discipleship and

4. Night vocational classes for adults.

By the grace of God all except the vocational classes have become reality.

Prayer of Thanksgiving and Dedication given by Pastor Agus Gunawan. Bethany Perth & Sydney. Guest of honour H.E. Dr Im Koch, Secretary of State for Education and H.E. Bun Sery, Vice Governor of Phnom Penh.

Emmanuel School students, teachers, parents and members of the community.

Rally @Emmanuel School on the Friday evening of the school opening drew enthusiastic response from the surrounding communities and hundreds responded to alter call for salvation and healing.

Open-air Rally on Saturday @Kandal drew in mainly factory workers and young adults in this industrial district of Phnom Penh.

Thank God for keeping the storm at bay (and mozzies away).

Many young adults received salvation and several re-dedications of their commitment to our Lord. One lady who was healed on that evening cooked up a sumptuous lunch on Sunday after the church service.

An integral part of mission is the training and equipping of local leaders. For this purpose, the Victory Life Bible school in Cambodia was set up. Pastors Bruce Saxby and Anne Edgar (VLB College lecturers) prayed for the first group of students enrolled.

We were blessed to have a large foreign contingent (40+) who came to help. Nations represented include Australia, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines and Hong Kong.

Some ministered at churches and at the school and some conducted classes in general hygiene and general well-being. Majority are on their first-time mission outing and God used them all so marvelously and effectively that just amazed us all. Even hotel staff were blessed as some received salvation with much joy during our stay.

What have we learned on this occasion. God can use anyone – who is willing – to change lives. Though the main building program is completed we covet your prayer as we concentrate our effort in training and equipping the students at Emmanuel, bible school and churches for the excellency of His Majesty service.

Glory to God!

Tim & Teresa Tay
