We have some great new work going on with unreached people groups, unreached villages, and remote areas. Alliance News shared this update from Syna Lao, an Alliance international worker serving in Cambodia a few months back about God's work happening in Anlong Veng province.
It's been so exciting to see several of our CPD churches visit this specific location in the field. Our district has a strong connection with this new ministry and we didn't want you to miss these amazing reports. I will be traveling to Cambodia soon, so check out my prayer request at the bottom of the page.
THE HARVEST IS RIPE, BUT THE WORKERS ARE FEW
Church attendance has doubled and even tripled as healings and miracles occur regularly in Cambodian villages.
God is doing something amazing at Srae Nouy Alliance* church! Located in Anlong Veng province, one of Cambodia’s spiritually dark areas, the congregation continues to see miraculous healings and people being set free from evil spirits.
This happens so frequently that word has spread among unbelievers in the community. Curious people began to drop by to see these wonders for themselves. As a result, Pastor Dy, who shepherds the congregation, reported that more than 70 people attended the church service one Sunday. Attendance had doubled!
Among the new visitors were six adult women, ages 21–78, who are relatives. For generations, all the females of this family had suffered under severe curses and bondages from evil spirits.
That Old Black Magic
Marta,* the grandmother, used to practice black magic and had made a living as a fortune teller. Although she no longer does those things, she and the entire family still experienced chronic headaches, slurred speech, and many unexplained bodily pains.
Among the four younger women, one is mute while another constantly laughs and talks nonsense. All six ladies had various visible and non-visible symptoms.
During a Sunday service, when it was time to pray for healing, Marta and her 59-year-old daughter, Leta, went forward to ask for prayer. The church leaders approached them to lay hands on and pray for them.
Marta had suffered chronic pain in her left arm for more than 30 years. She had to keep it bent to have relief. After receiving prayer, she was finally able to straighten her arm.
Central Pacific District Prayer Request
Please be in prayer over the next two weeks, as I travel with our video guy to two different Southeast Asian countries to encourage our workers there and to film and record what is happening on the field.
When we return, I will be excited to share our findings and update our churches here in the CPD, as well as the larger Alliance family, on how we can continue to be involved even more with our work in Southeast Asia.
