Things are going well here. Brother Chheng has been in the United States now for almost one month. We have been working to share the Gospel in his absence. We have split into three groups and start in the morning at 8:00. Most houses will listen to us and we usually spend about 30 minutes with each family. We have heard many responses to the Gospel message but the most common by far is the denial of Justification by Faith. Cambodians believe that each person’s future state depends on their “good” works outweighing their bad works. They do not believe that someone else can justify them. It’s a sad situation to see so many people living in sin and refusing to repent and believe in the God who will save all who do. To many we are an aroma of death.
But thanks be to God, to others we are an aroma of life! By Gods grace alone! Since we started sharing two weeks ago we have had 6 visitors come to our Sunday services as a result of hearing the Gospel. It’s too early to tell if they truly believe but we have been encouraged greatly and have been praising God for these folks. Please pray for us to do this important work with a spirit of gentleness and in truth.
Also, as you know already, I have been sharing preaching responsibilities with Bro Chheng away and this week was my second turn. With all the discussion about good works and how they relate to our justification before God, it seemed good to teach on the subject. It’s available on-line if you wish to hear it.

Grace and peace,
