Sometimes our heart thopes for things that are good things/ things that are God's will or things that we believe to be God's will.  Sometimes our hopes increase because of the circumstances that surround us.  You know, we can see things coming together!  At the beginning of January, it seemed as if things were "coming together."

Praise the Lord for His perfect plans.  God's ways are not our ways.  Our family had plans to return to Cambodia right after Thanksgiving, however God saw fit that we spend another month in the States.  (God new that we needed the rest and the spiritual renewing!)  Because of COVID, there were so many things that had to fall into place, and God began to work things our each step of the way.  To continue reading the update from Eli Schrock, please click on the link below.

This last weekend God gave safety to all of us traveling to Kampot for the funeral. Some of Nay's family are Christians, but the Buddhist family members demanded a Buddhist funeral.  However, they did allow us time to have a Christian service for him.  We say a number of positive results.

The Lord our God is still doing whatsoever He pleases in Heaven and in earth.  He is in control and can accomplish whatsoever He pleases, even in the "deep" places.  During the last few months, I have been in "deep" over my head with work and problem solving of all sorts.  Life has overwhelmed me with blessings and challenges on a daily basis.  It is in these blessings, problems, and minstry that we have seen God do as He pleases in both our lives and ministry.

It was quite a task, but Becky and I managed to jump through all the hoops, including fourteen days of quarantine, to re-enter Cambodia!  We were let out into the public on August 21st.  Since then, we have been extremely busy in every aspect of the ministry we have here.

Jesus stood on the shores of the Sea of Galilee and exhorted Peter, when I've gone back to heaven, don't forget to feed my sheep.  God wants His sheep to be nourished with the Word of God.  Again, on the Mount of Olives, Jesus said as the final point of His Commission, "Teach them in all things whatsoever I have commanded you." As God has given us the oversight of His church, we must teach them God's timeless truths as the unchanging Word of God is the foundation of faith and practice.  May God bless the hearing and the heeding of [...]

We know that it is our Lord Jesus Christ that builds the church.  Only He can do a spiritual, life changing work in the hearts of men.  However, we are so thankful that God is pleased to use us as tools in the great work that He does as the Masterbuilder. Becky and I rejoice to see what God has done in the hearts of people over the last 24 years.  God has been so good!  To continue reading the update from Rodney Ruppel, please click the link below.

Romans 12:12 states, "Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer." In times of distress and various trials, we must be on guard against the wrong responses.  God's Word gives the formula for endurance through these trials.  In the midst of distress, we must keep our focus upon the right things.  According to the verse above, we must: 1. Be pleasant (rejoicing in God's hope...expecting, delighting in His peace and promises); 2. Be patient (resting in God's promises without despair); and 3. Be prayerful (seeking Divine direction to navigate through the trials).  To continue reading the update from Eli [...]

Perplexed yet not distressed. In II Corinthians 4:8, Paul gives a ministry report, "We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair."  On every front Paul faced immeasurable trials, and at times, there seemed to be no end in sight.  Yet, his reply to these troubles was, "No distress and no despair."

Psalm 28:7  The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.  God is truly worthy of praise and He is good all the time.  David's attitude was one of praise and thanksgiving.  To continue reading the update from Eli Schrock, please click the link below.

Theme for 2020:  Esteeming God's Word "I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food" (Job 23:12).  As for Job, God's Word was considered a high priority and was sought after with all his heart  (although he didn't have the Biblical canon as we do).

After eleven months of weekly Saturday AM Bible Club meetings at K'na village, God has blessed the efforts of His people in this unreached village.  Just last week, the first soul was saved, a twelve-year-old girl named Voleak.  She was eager to finish the salvation lessons and happily trusted Christ as her Saviour.  With great anticipation, she told Mari-lyn.  "I want to believe on Christ now!"  Pray with us that God would plant a substantial work in that village.

God is so good to give us opportunity to serve him.  It is such a great privilege to be used of God, whether to sow seed where people have never heard or to enter into another man's labor. God gave me a great opportunity to preach for Pastor Ratha at Bethany Baptist Church in Battambang on October 6th.  Pastor Ratha and his wife love the Lord and have great vision to be used of God more.

It is such a blessing to sit around and share what God has done and is doing in, through, with, and in spite of us.  God is always at work, even when we can't see it. How I look forward to hearing God tell us of all the things that He did through our obedience to Him.  But I also dread God showing me everything that "could have been" if I had always obeyed.  Lord, help me be faithful!
