Joelle's Monthly Prayer Letter
'Truly, truly I say to you, you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.' John 1:51
This month I started studying Khmer at University instead of at OMF. We have homework and tests everyday and so it pushes me much harder. Our teacher is just one of the 3% of University Lecturers that survived PolPot. He once feel asleep whilst dictating to us!
Meet Jimpy, my new Puppy. He likes to eat museli and yoghurt for breakfast. He runs and hides under the bed when a.) Party Political Broadcasts come down our street b.) I start doing my aerobics and c.) he hears me running the tap for his bath.
This month it was a big birthday for me. A Cambodian friend invited me to her home for dinner with her family, but when I arrived there were about 25 dear Cambodian friends there to surprise me.
Other Prayer Requests...
Please pray for my health. I have been sick on and off this month. I have had worms twice since being back and have been sick again this past weekend with stomach problems. I am keen to not miss anymore University classes and get my energy back.
Please pray for wisdom with regards to teaching English classes at my Church. There has been a months gap between the last teacher left and I started. The children have got out of the routine of coming and have not been turning up. Do we try to re-launch the classes or just let it be and think of other ways to reach out to this community?
Please pray for the National Election on Sunday 28th July. The Opposition Party have really gained momentum and the streets have been packed with rallies everyday. For 30 years the people have been too scared to speak against the very corrupt ruling party, but this year has been different. It has been really exciting to see the Cambodian people wake up and demand more for their country.
