Dear family, brothers and sisters in Christ,
Greetings from Canada! Spring has finally arrived. We are enjoying the warmer weather.
Khmer new year falls on April 14-16 this year. This is the most joyous festival for Cambodians. On the first day the people offer gifts and incense before their gods or Buddha. They wash their face in the morning, at noon they take a bath and wash their feet at night in order to gain good luck. On the second day they give gifts of food and clothing to their family members, as well as to the needy. They also go to the temples to worship their ancestors. On the third day the monks clean the Buddha statue and sprinkle perfume over them before praying for prosperity and safety of the nation.
The Khmer new year almost coincides with our Christian Easter celebration. May the Holy Spirit work in the people’s hearts to know Jesus is the only way to God. Jesus is fully God and Man who has no sin so that He can be the sacrifice for our transgressions!
Let’s have hope in our resurrected Christ who will never leave us nor forsake us once we accept Him as our Savior!
Thank you so much for supporting our ministry in Living Stone Church and Sonlight Kindergarten. Please continue to praise God and pray for our needs.
- There was a love feast for the Living Stone Church on Sunday before the new year holiday. Many people attended. May they continue to come to worship God and fellowship with other believers.
- The ankle of Joseph, the elder son of our staff, Phalla and Savy has healed nicely. He has been able to ride his motorbike for 2 weeks.
- Our elder son started work on April 4th after 2 years staying at home to look after the 4 children. His wife is a part time nurse that she can change to a shift from 2-11 pm.
- Please pray for the members of Living Stone Church that they can stand strong after the spiritual dark forces during the Khmer new year.
- Pray for Angel Gao to have wisdom and discernment in leading the church and kindergarten in Phnom Penh.
- Pray for our spiritual and physical wellness so that we can continue to serve our God here in Canada and with the staff of Living Stone Church.
Thank you for praying. Keep in touch and share your prayer requests so that we can bring your needs to God.
In His name,
Joseph and Liza Ng
