May 17 Dessert Gathering

In less than a month, on June 1, we will fly back to Cambodia.  We have a lot of packing between now and then and once we get there we will need to buy a car and find a place to live. We will be staying in the Green Pasture Inn for a few days after our arrival.  Green Pasture Inn is a Christian run guesthouse that specializes in accommodating short term mission teams and missionaries.

For our friends in southern California, we would like to invite you to a Dessert Gathering hosted by Calvary Chapel La Mirada (15144 Leffingwell Road, La Mirada, CA 90638) on Wednesday May 17th immediately after the Wednesday service (around 8:45pm).  It will be a good opportunity for us to fellowship and share with our senders before we depart on June 1.  We hope you can come.

Things have been going well with us.  Kayo and Benjamin continue to wrap up his homeschooling for the year.  Darryl is writing video scripts for future evangelistic videos once we return to Cambodia.

In Christ,

Darryl, Kayo, and Benjamin

Record Family Cambodia Update: Returning to Cambodia

Isaiah 41:10b I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

We praise God for opening the doors for us to return to Cambodia as missionaries! We will be returning to Cambodia on June 1 after nearly eleven months away. We look forward to this new season of ministry. We have been blessed by our time in the USA but now the time is coming to move into the next season. Please pray that it will be a fruitful and blessed season. We want to thank everyone who prayed, encouraged, hosted, loaned us vehicles, and supported us during this time of furlough. We trust that God will bless you for your faithfulness to Him.

Once we return to Cambodia, Darryl will resume his work with International Fishers: Christian Evidence Ministry. The purpose of this ministry is to equip local churches, organizations, and believers with the evidence they need to be confident in the truth of God’s Word so that they can evangelize others with more boldness. He will also resume other ministries as God opens the doors. He is writing a video script on the inspiration of the Bible so that he can hit the ground running once we return. Please pray for renewed creativity for him.

Kayo will continue her ministries of mentoring Cambodian women, worship ministry, and reaching out to Japanese living in Cambodia.

Benjamin will return to Hope International School as a 3rd grader this fall.

Kayo and Benjamin’s first time in Mexico. Our family joined a one day mission trip to visit our friend Deanna in Pedregales Mexico.

Our friend Deanna and her childrens’ ministry.

Prayers and Praises:

We will need to purchase another car and find a place to live once we return to Cambodia, please pray that God will open the doors for this.

We give glory to God for Darryl’s recovery, please continue to pray for complete healing.

Please continue to pray for our remaining two months in the USA that God will grant us favor.

We thank God that Kayo received her Green Card for another ten years.

In Christ’s Loving Hands,

Darryl, Kayo, and Benjamin

With our dear friends, missionaries to Cambodia from Fiji.

As we come to the end of 2016, we have the opportunity to reflect on the past year and to look forward to 2017.  After serving as missionaries since 2007, 2016 has been a year of reflection, rest, reading the Word and other books, and reconnecting with family, friends, and our calling as missionaries to Cambodia, a real sabbatical.  We are thankful for all of the grace and blessings we have received.  We also give thanks to God for providing for our practical needs of housing, transportation, and finances through faithful ministry partners, church family, and some other amazing miraculous ways.

We lived and wrapped up our work in Cambodia until June 2016. Benjamin could successfully finish his school year at Hope International School and we sold and stored some of our belongings there. We arrived at Los Angeles on July 7 and are staying in the greater Los Angeles area where our mission agency and main sending church in the USA are located. Darryl has been able to get the medical treatment and member care that he needs to return to health and strength.  Kayo’s Green Card process has gone smoother than we expected and so she should receive her new Green Card around February 2017. Benjamin has been occupied with homeschooling through a charter school and is also taking a Judo (Japanese martial art) class at a local community center.

Lord willing, we will start getting ready to return to our mission field, Cambodia after the first of the year.  The returning date on our returning tickets to Phnom Penh, Cambodia is March 25, 2017.  Thanks in advance for your faithful prayers and encouragement that God has used to restore and refresh us.

Merry Christmas!

Darryl, Kayo, and Benjamin Record
