Week One Update from our Sports DTS outreach team in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
The main ministry we have been involved in so far is teaching children and young adults to speak and write english. We spent the beginning of our week observing and getting to know the teachers and students, and of course learning a bit about the culture before leading the classes ourselves. We are now able to run the classes and curriculum on our own and we are all really enjoying learning to teach, as well as learning to speak a bit of Khmer ourselves!
We have already seen two children healed of sickness this week through prayer. One was a 2 year old child whose family works with a University of the Nations program called ‘Children at Risk’. He was suffering from a high running fever for several days. As a result of his illness he wasn’t able to sleep or take any medication. The doctors were also unable to draw blood to discover what was wrong with him. During a prayer time our outreach team prayed with the locals for health and a quick recovery for the boy.
The day after we prayed his fever broke and he was sleeping again.
Also a young girl at the school had been suffering from a bad cough for days. She is one of the few Christians at school and suffers persecution from her family. We said a simple prayer for her and her health improved overnight. Her healing was a wonderful testimony to the people around her. Pray for God’s continuing protection and influence on her family.
Aside from teaching we have been able to play soccer with some of the students and staff. Playing soccer in Cambodia takes some getting used to with temperatures reaching a sweltering 35ºC (100ºF).
Thank you all for your prayers and support! Stay tuned for more updates soon.
