Agape Fish Fund partners with Southeast Asian Prayer Center (SEAPC) to provide orphans and children in Cambodia with a Christian home and education.
Hot, Rainy season
Cambodia is entering its hottest time of the year and the start of the rainy season. For the next couple of months, temperatures can get well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. As the rainy season begins soon, it can also be a time of flooding. Pray with us for the protection of our children’s homes.
Khmer New Year Holiday
April also brings the Khmer New Year holiday season. This is the biggest holiday in the country and can last up to 2 weeks. Because it is best for the kids to keep them in contact with any known family, unless it puts them in physical danger, and the government requires that we allow children to go, many of the kids travel to visit family during this time, usually for up to 1 week.
Please pray with us that the kids who visit family will be the bright light of Jesus to their families and that they will all return safely to the home. For those who are unable to visit families, please pray that they are abundantly blessed during the holiday time.
Brother Hubert Tutwiler has started to go around to various homes to do urgently needed repairs and to review the safety report from Brothers Hammer and Ethan to determine the priority and cost for each repair needed. He has been to the Kampong Chhnang home, Preah Vihear home, Oddar Meanchey home, Banteay Meanchey home, Siem Reap home, and Battambang home so far.
Three young people at the Phnom Penh Student Center, who have grown up within NHO, have been identified to come to our Oakmont office in the beginning of May to intern with us for three months. They are wonderful young people who have agreed to work for SEAPC-Cambodia or NHO for two years upon their return to Cambodia in whatever capacity we place them.
The three young people are Sophea Sen, a young man who has just this month completed his college education to be an English teacher, Sopheab Samrith, a young man who is studying law in college, and Leangkheng John, a young lady who completed her study to be a nurse—specializing in midwifery—last year. Their visa interviews are on Monday, April 22, at 8:00 AM Cambodia time (that’s Easter Sunday at 9:00PM in the USA Eastern time). Please pray with us that their visas will be granted and that their time with us will bring changes to many lives in Cambodia for Jesus.
As we watch these young people grow into young men and women of God, it is so encouraging to see so many people praying for them and enriching their lives. May God bless you and your family this month and may you have a wonderful Easter!
