In the last three months, our family has traveled almost 20,000 miles with meetings from our nation's capital in the East to the mountains of Utah in the West.  God has blessed with renewed ties of prayers and fellowship as we reconnect with supporting churches.  We are so thankful for the faithfulness of God's people all over the States.  Faithfulness is so essential to long-term fruitfulness.  To continue reading the update from Eli Schrock, please click on the link below.

Thank you for praying for Becky, me, and our ministry.  The notes we receive from you that simply let us know you are praying really mean a lot to us. In our last prayer letter, we mentioned a man (Swill) who got cancer.  He had a very bleak prognosis.  In the face of death, he accepted Christ.  His wife also got saved.  To continue reading the update from Rodney Ruppel, please click on the link below.

For Cambodia, 2021 was the year COVID hit hard.  The government shut down the country to protect the people from the pandemic, but eventually the restrictions were hurting the country more that the pandemic was.  During this time New Hope Baptist Church was meeting online and working hard to stay connected.  To continue reading the update from Rodney Ruppel, please click on the link below.

Praise the Lord that the COVID virus is receding in Cambodia; we are thankful for a partial lifting of government restrictions on church services.  The Prime Minister has issued a letter granting permission for religious assembly, as long as the local civil authorities approve and certain guidelines are followed.  To continue reading the update from Eli Schrock, please click the link below.

High Level Restriction After eighteen months of various levels of adjustments due to the virus, we are finally under official RED ZONE restriction.  There is police presence on the streets, and everyone is required to be under "house arrest" until further notice from the local authorities.  Anyone on the streets unlawfully can be penalized and indicted with criminal charges.  Only in the case of serious emergencies are there any exceptions.  To continue reading the update from Eli Schrock, please click the link below.

We arrived in Cambodia 25 years ago full of excitement, yet a bit fearful of our new lives.  We did not speak the language.  We did not understand the culture.  The food was strange.  The smells were strange.  We missed our families.  The list could go on and on.  However, we had no idea of the special treasure God would place in our lives on the day we arrived...

Praise the Lord for 12-year-old Monote whose salvation experience is quite amazing.  Almost two years ago, this boy was taken away to a distant province where he was raised by his grandparents.  By all indications, our ministy outreach to Monote was over.  To continue reading the update from Eli Schrock, please click on the link below.

Many missionaries and national pastors have had the privilege of investing in Pastor Tho, his family, and his ministry.  The Ruppels are just a small part of what God is doing in their lives. Pastor Tho was saved in Phnom Penh and soon became burdened for his relatives in his home village about 100 kms away.  To continue reading the update from Rodney Ruppel, please click on the link below.

In April, after the sudden death of one of our beloved teachers, Akara, we experienced grief and learned to trust in the everlasting arms of our Heavenly Father.  Although we were not permitted because of COVID restrictions to attend the funeral which took place in Akara's home province, yet we were thankful that her family allowed a group of Christians in the Stund Treng province to host a Christian funeral and glorify God at her graveside.  To continue reading the update from Eli Schrock, please click the link below.

Thank you all for praying for us during the lockdown.  Becky arrived home safe and traveled to Rhadee's college graduation.  I am so glad Becky could be there.  We are so proud of our kids. During lock-down, I realized how far behind I was on office work.  So it's been productive getting caught up on a number of things.  To continue reading the update from Rodney Ruppel, please click on the link below Rodney Ruppel - May 2021

Praise the Lord for lost sheep that have found the Great Shepherd of their souls.  Thank you for praying; God has given us some amazing answers to prayer.  Recently, we found Sopiep, a man who has suffered through a divorce, drug use, and even a near-death encounter that left him crippled and desperate for help.  For the last six weeks, he has pursued the true Gospel.  To continue reading the update from Eli Schrock, please click the link below.

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.
