We give thanks that the number of church groups in Kratie Province has been increasing in the last several years. However, many of these church groups are small and in isolated locations. Every two months OMF invites the leaders of these church groups to gather together for a time of Bible training, prayer and encouragement. Usually about 40 church leaders attend. Please pray that these training sessions will be effective in building the Church in Kratie Province:
By Tim Kangas
Will you pray for Cambodia?
- Many of the church leaders are new Christians. Often they were the first to believe in their village. Please pray for their daily walk with Jesus and that they will daily approach Him through prayer and through studying the Word.
- Many of these leaders live in isolated areas. The church group that they lead is often the only Christan witness for miles around. Please pray that these leaders and church groups will be encouraged in the Lord daily and have a bold testimony in their area.
- One particular focus of the training sessions is to equip the leaders to prepare their church groups for service and outreach (Eph. 4:11-12). Please pray that these leaders will be trained to effectively build up the spiritual lives and witness of their church members.
- The overall goal of the training sessions is taken from Acts 19:10 – we meet together to train and encourage the church leaders so that “all who live in the province of Kratie will hear the word of the Lord.” Please pray that all the churches will be equipped to boldly share the Gospel with the unreached in Kratie Province.
