– 幼稚園的招待員Srey Leak上星期接受了主，為她的靈命成長禱告。
Dear friends and family,
Greetings from Cambodia! Christmas season is around the corner. The malls and shops are advertising their goods. Let us not forget the real meaning of Christmas! ‘So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”’ (Matthew 1:22-23) Our Saviour Jesus’ birth is the meaning of Christmas.
We have been back to Phnom Penh for about one month. Getting adjusted to the hot weather and way of life here. Praise God everything is well with living Stone Church. The members still come every Sunday and there is a slight increase of people coming to church. God is good and faithful. We are still looking for a full-time pastor preferably a male. About 4-5 people attend our church are asking about the baptismal service because they have decided to follow Jesus.
In September about 10 students left our Sonlight Kindergarten and went to grade school. We miss them and pray that they can adjust well to their new schools. There is a drop of students and toddlers in our nursery due to various reasons. We heard that there are many schools opened near us and their tuition fee is cheaper than ours. We are planning to make new pamphlets for promotion.
Thank you so much for caring and praying for us. Your partnership is very important in our ministry here in Cambodia. Please continue to remember our praise and prayer items.
- A slight increase of people coming to our church.
- Lydia, our youngest daughter, is going to get married in Cambodia at the end of this month. They will move to Canada in March.
- We have found a new cook at our school.
- Christmas program at church is on December 17 this year. The members are encouraged to bring 1 non-Christian friend to come. Pray that they will know the meaning of Christmas.

- A baptismal class is planned for four people coming to our church in January 2018.

Wish you a blessed Christmas and a fruitful New Year!
In His service,
Joseph and Liza
