Dear Family and friends,
As Christmas is coming soon, can we sing “Joy to the World” despite what is happening around us? The pandemic still haunts us; when is everything back to normal we may ask. As believers in God we believe that He is in sovereign control of all things. “The Lord has established His throne in heaven, And His kingdom rules over all (Psalm 103:19). That removes our fear and anxiety but instead it gives us inner peace.
November is a hard month for us in Cambodia. On the 3rd because of the trade visit of the Hungarian minister who was tested positive with Covid 19 when landing in Thailand. There were 4 Cambodians tested positive. Then on 28th there was a community outbreak in Phnom Penh and other provinces. There have been 40 people tested positive so far. All schools were ordered to close for 2 weeks, entertainment centres, karaoke, gathering have been closed, and they do not issue new marriage licenses. As of now we have a new memo from the government that schools, religious gatherings, entertainment centers are closed until further notice.
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus.
Thanks for supporting us in all aspects. Appreciate that. Please continue to remember us:
- Our dorm lady, Dy Jasmine’s Mom who has cancer is doing better. She can cook for herself, ride the motorbike to church. Praise God and thanks for your prayers.
- Because of suspension of schools, our teachers upgrade themselves in teachings. The nannies in the nursery can have time in learning the Biblical truth. “Sithon” accepted the Lord as Savior!
- Besides the morning Bible study for our pastoral staff, we do topical Bible study in the afternoon.
- The community outbreak on Covid 19 can be under control soon so school and church can reopen.
- Sorphorn, one of the teachers is seeking and has been reading the Bible. Pray that she can trust Jesus as her Savior.
- Our church staff will have a retreat on January 7 which is a holiday. Pray for openness to God’s words and one another.
- Christmas celebration is scheduled on 27th. It is likely we have to cancel it due to the community outbreak. Pray that our members will not be disappointed.
- Please pray for Tiri’s health who has diabetes and toothache. Because of Covid 19 she is hesitant to see a dentist.
Thank you so much. We would love to hear from you and pray for you!
In His service,
Joseph and Liza Ng
