A wonderful summer in the Stieng villages in Eastern Cambodia!
It’s been a special summer in the ethnic minority villages of the Stieng people in Eastern Cambodia. My church planters and I decided to have an intensive outreach among the kids in these villages, and do simple, fun Vacation Bible school outreaches with Bible stories, games and crafts. Amazingly, it wasn’t just the kids who responded! In 6 villages, 126 Stieng people, 29 of whom were adults professed Christ right in the outreach time!
We were awed at the wonderful response, and so excited to see God move among the Stieng people in Cambodia (just across the border in Vietnam, 50% of the Stieng are dedicated Christians).
On top of this, the Stieng New Testament is on its way to Cambodian Stieng people- they use a Khmer (Cambodian) Bible, because they have never had their own Bible in their heart language- that is about to change! Shortly, Stieng leaders are coming to teach our Stieng cell church leaders to read their very own Stieng alphabet.
Pray for our few Stieng house church leaders, who now have to help disciple many new believers in remote villages. They are very excited, but feeling the burden of new responsibilities.
