After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. Revelation 7:9 NIV
The verse above is encouraging. There will be so many people in heaven that we cannot count them. Sometimes we minister to people and share the Gospel with them and we do not know whether someday the seeds that were planted in their lives or not. We may never know how our lives have impacted others until heaven. When we find out in heaven, it will make heaven sweeter.
Darryl went to the countryside for an overnight ministry trip with his Cambodian/Filipino ministry partners. He spoke at a house church on the countryside. He spoke about the Biblical view of respecting the elderly and parents. The church held a foot washing service for their senior citizens. We also helped with a children’s program at a local Christian school. The trip was during the Cambodian New Year. Cambodians believe that there is a new angel that comes to the country each year. Darryl taught the children about angels and demons and that they should not worship angels or be afraid of demons because Jesus Christ, the Creator is greater.
Darryl also continues to teach Christian Apologetics at the Cambodia Presbyterian Theological Institute. His students are preparing to video record their Apologetics skits at the end of this month. These videos will be uploaded to social media. Some of his students are sharing Darryl’s videos on social media to encourage their Christian friends and evangelize their non-Christian friends. Some of these videos have received more than 6,500 views. The International Fishers website consistently receives around one thousand visitors per month.
Kayo is working more with Precious Women Ministry because their other foreign staff member has returned to their own country. Her ministry to Japanese people in Cambodia continues to grow and more Japanese are expected to come in the fall. She also is ministering through the international church’s worship team.
Please pray for our coming trip to Japan this summer. It has been more than four years since we were able to go there and connect with and encourage our senders there.
In Christ’s Hands,
Darryl, Kayo, and Benjamin
