August Ministry Update: Part 1

Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.”  Matthew 19:26 NLT

We have had three very intense weeks in Cambodia since returning.  We’ve experience heavy rains and floorboard deep floods, daily blackouts, mechanical and computer problems, and illnesses.  We’ve also had great blessings and breakthroughs in our ministry.

Out of our weakness, trials, and spiritual warfare God has been growing some amazing fruit!

University Project Update:  Trinity Institute of Cambodia

University Planning Committee

The university planning committee has finished its work.  We now have a mission statement, a vision statement, a name, a board, a CEO, and a COO.  The name for now will be Trinity Institute of Cambodia (TIC), Lord willing, it will eventually grow to become Trinity University of Cambodia.

The mission statement is:  To actively equip and mentor our students to discover their identity and purpose and to actualize their potential. This means that we want the students to discover who they are as special creations of God, along with how this identity influences all other identities; national, cultural, and personal.  We want them to discover the purpose that Jesus Christ has in their lives and to reach their fullest potential through the power of the Holy Spirit.

The vision statement is: Renew Minds Transform Lives.

The board will be made up of Rev. Heng Cheng (General Secretary of the Evangelical Fellowship of Cambodia), Dr. Andrew Kwong, Dr. Kevin Lowe, Mr. Uon Seila, and Darryl

Dr. Kwong will be the CEO (Chief Executive Officer) and Darryl will be the COO (Chief Operations Officer).  Please pray for special grace and wisdom for all those involved in the leadership of this new venture.  At this point, we have no funds, so all administrators and board members are purely volunteers.

As COO, Darryl will have to draw on his political science background to develop the policies and structure for the organization.    This will be a part-time position so that Darryl will be able to have time for his other ministries.
