Life/Ministry Aug-November '09

Here are pictures of a few youth members and some pictures of our Worship team and church on a Sunday morning.
Currently we have about 15 youth attending our youth group every Saturday night at 6:30pm.
Candy and Rachelle have been heading up that ministry for the past few months and have been doing an awesome job.
A few months ago our youth went to Pursat for 3 days and just had a great time of drawing closer to the Lord. The truck broke down on the way there and there were a few other 'exciting' moments but many of the young people came back excited about the Lord, which was the purpose!
Our worship team for years has consisted of just myself playing the guitar for Srai Sim but after teaching Dree the drums for over 3 years we have a pretty sweet little 18 year old drummer now! Sopayuk plays the guitar when he can and sometimes Dree will play the bass and I'll play the drums. Srai Sim leads worship on most Sundays and is just one passionate worship leader!! Pau helps to sing and so does Makara and Srai Roit. Maroit is a pastors daughter and we are getting her to lead worship on Sundays sometimes. We have a long ways to go musically for sure but God knows we are trying!!

Baptism @ Gaw Bram Village!!

By the Grace of God we were able to Baptise 60 people, on October 25, '09, who had confessed that Jesus Christ was Lord of their lives and they had repented of their sins. 3 of these people are volunteering at our church everyday of the week and have been such a blessing. Hi-Anne is a 52 year old man who is married with 4 kids. Rachelle Schellenberg found him at the Casino area one night drunk and now he attends church, and every meeting that we host faithfully!
Srai Roit is 18 years old and is Pastor Boosapauls sister in Law. She used to be very hard hearted and against this God that Boosapaul always spoke about but now she helps cook at the church everyday and helps teach Khmai at some of our home- churches.
Date is also 18 years old and is Srai Sims nephew. He is quite small for his age and was probably picked on quite a bit as a teenager. Now he helps clean the building every morning and even before devotions begin at 9am he reads his Bible by himself for around 30 minutes.
God is so Good!

Cambodia Life 2 -Cool Season!!

Joom Reeip Sooah!! (I mean when in doubt, just use the classic missionary 'Cliche' and say hello in the native Language, using English phonetics!! Talk about OVERDONE!!) Forgive me supporters and friends out there, but you know it's true!!
Anyways here are some shots of real life in Cambodia! In this country, the most picturesque parts, for me personally, are out in the country side during the rainy season. At this time of the year everything is really lush and green and the rice farms just look amazing! For me, nothing beats driving my truck or motorbike out to a home church in the middle of some rural area, and having a Khmai meal in a bamboo hut and then spending the night there! It's awesome and the only way to experience Cambodia!!

Well it's been a while since I last wrote and a lot has happened in the past month and a half!

- We have seen 24 people saved since coming back to Cambodia, thank you Jesus!
- Josh Peters served with us for a month and was a real blessing
- A team went to Morrisay and had a special Youth meeting and visited some house churches
- 4 new house churches have been added to our ministry in Morrisay
- A Vietnamese Barber is now living in our church building
-Patrick from Saskatchewan is going to work with us for a month
- On September 9th our Youth went to Pursat for a Youth retreat and came back pumped
- On September 15th we had a Women's Seminar led by Rachelle and Srai Sim.
- I spoke at the Full Gospel Church in Chang Rai and also at the Mae Fah Luang University in Chang Rai
- Had a nasty Flu for 5 days but now feel great!!

And the real big news is that, our church now has a Government License to legally hold worship meetings!! Praise you Lord!! We have been trying to get this for a long time and finally have got it!! It's a huge answer to prayer!

We are still believing God for 180,000 US Dollars for a 10 Acre piece of land to build a childrens home, a Bible school, a place to play sports and in general, to make disciples!! We need 20,000US Dollars down and then we can take ownership of the land. If you feel led to give to this project, let me know.

Back to Asia!!

As I write this I am waiting with Boosapaul in the Taipei airport, about to catch our last flight to Bangkok before we take a bus to Poipet, Cambodia.
We arrived in Canada on June 26th and right up until yesterday, August 4th, we had an amazing time doing every 'Canadian' type thing we could!!
Boosapaul adapted to life in Canada amazingly well and did everything from riding a horse in Alberta, to ordering a double-double at Tim Hortons!! He survived without eating rice everyday and now I think he genuinely enjoys Cheerios with milk!!
We were able to share about Cambodia and the ministry at places like the Union Gospel Mission in Vancouver to backyard BBQ's in Three Hills, Alberta and Kelowna, BC!
At every place we shared we met awesome people who have a heart for the lost! We were so encouraged and blessed by people's encouraging words and by their financial support! God is so good and I give Him praise for every good thing that happened this summer!!
It was a whirlwind trip but be had a ton of fun and after being at the Victory Conference in Alberta we are stirred up and excited to keep going all out for Jesus in Cambodia!
Hope you Enjoy the Pictures!

The 'Boos' in Canada (and abroad!)

Well I promised many of you that I would show you pictures of Boosapual in Canada, so here are a few!!
They guy is adapting to life in a 'modern' country extremely well!! I am slightly blown away by how well he is doing, honestly!! I thought he would be a lot like a dear caught in the headlights of an oncoming vehicle but he's doing great!
Today he had Tim Hortons for the first time and tonight we will take him to watch the Canada Day fireworks!! Should be fun!
For those of you who are interested, I am sharing at Transform Central in Abbotsford Saturday night (July 11th), and will be sharing at Living Waters in Fort Langley Sunday morning (July 12th).
On July 14th we are flying to Alberta to attend the Victory World Conference in Lethbridge. The Conference is happening from the 15th to the 19th and by the grace of God we are representing Victory Church's of Cambodia.
On the 19th I will be speaking at the Victory Church in Fort Macleod and then on the 21st will be sharing at the Victory Church in Three Hills.
Please be praying for God to use me to encourage the body of Christ at these different meetings! I really believe that God wants to use us to encourage people to do whatever they can to bring in the end time harvest and get involved in missions.
Blessings and I'm looking forward to seeing many of you this summer!
