Hola! supporters and friends! :)

Today is the 2nd day since we arrived at Khek Noi village. The day started off with a heavy downpour and meteorological reports have confirmed that it will be raining heavily over the weekends. We actually made plans to go to the waterfall for our outreach program over the weekend. In consideration of current reports, we have to come up with alternate locations for the outreach program. We do feel a bit disappointed with the weather reports but we have faith in the Lord that this is all still part of His great plan.

The whole team prayed up for the morning. God never fails to refresh us in an intimate way. It was important that we prepare ourselves even before we enter the spiritual battleground. Eugene also reminded us that we ourselves are the living gospels that will minister to them. Our actions reflect upon the God that we serve. Therefore, it is important that we be mindful of how we live our lives.

On the way up, Eugene was sharing about an "Amy" that he has forged close bonds with. We finally met her today in the comfort of her pig sty. We thank God for the creativity to reach out to the villagers through various means such as employment on the farm and blessing the village with food and introducing modern arigational techniques.

Do continue to keep us in your prayers as we get ourselves all geared up for God to use us in this battle.

P.S Please pray for Eugene and Ben too as they continue to labour for the Lord on the frontline.
