Prayer Letter — March 12, 2014
We trust that our letter once again finds you growing in the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We are all well here. Homeschool is in full swing and the kids are doing well. In December Adam’s father was able to make a first-time visit to Cambodia to see all the grandkids (yes, and the kids too). Regrettably, on the second day after his arrival he slipped off a curb broke and his ankle. By the time you’re reading this he is just about all better. It rained on his visit a little, but we still had a great time together, especially getting reacquainted with the grandkids.
I have a number of contacts for whom I would like you to pray. At church, our prayer list for lost people is growing rapidly, as folks are praying for and mentioning their loved ones that need Jesus. First, please pray for Wuech, whom I mentioned last time. She hasn’t been coming to church as much lately. Also, please pray for a young man named Wany. He is 16 years old. He is from the Tuol Srae village where Rut and I visit every week. We are still trying to track down a time to teach him further. Next, please pray for Srey. She lives on the way to Tuol Srae. She has listened well to us as we have taught her the truth. Please pray for God to continue to open her heart and that she would be saved. We are also teaching and/or trying to teach two other ladies in their 60s. They have had some exposure to the Gospel already, having some family members or friends that are Christians. Please pray for Theng and the other lady (whose name I don’t yet know).
The people in the church have had their ups and downs recently, some passing through difficult seasons in their lives. We thank God that, as He promised, He has sustained them and brought them through. I would ask for you to pray for Tevy, whom I have mentioned before. She believes in the Lord but has seemed to pull away from the church a bit. She is still reading the Bible and seeking God in prayer, but she needs the encouragement and fellowship of her church. It seems thorns are trying to choke her faith.
Recently, some of the ladies in our church were able to attend a Ladies Tea at New Hope Baptist Church in Phnom Penh. They all seemed so excited. Though it might seem insignificant, an outing like this was a blessing to them. Some of these ladies don’t really have any Christian friends outside of our church. It can seem kind of lonely when you can count all the Christians you know outside of your own church on one hand. They rejoiced in the opportunity to get to know other Christians in other churches.
If you receive a hard-copy of this letter and would rather only receive it via email or social media, please let me know. Thank you so much for your prayers and support for our family. Fare ye well, dear brethren.
For Christ’s Name,
Adam, Alison, Joshua, Anna, Abigail, Charity, Mary-Lynn, and Isaiah Wood
