By: Team Cambodia Mission Trip Team
Our time was devoted to the orphans of Bileg all day Tuesday and Wednesday. Tuesday morning we had an encouraging word from David Delk, who reminded us that in the eyes of God, while we haven’t CAUSED the problems of the world we are responsible for ADDRESSING the problems of the world. And pouring into the orphans at Bileg is one way of preparing the next generation of Cambodian leaders to be leaders through Christ. The Saving Susan Ministry kids from Bileg came to our facility to swim in the morning and then we were all off to their school, Solid Rock Christian Academy, for graduation ceremonies. “School’s out for Summer”—yay!! Jay Arntzen was keynote speaker at graduation, (translated into the Khmer language by the school’s Pastor Joseph.)
Wednesday Cathy Russo started with a moving devotional on simply trusting God and being obedient, even when it’s not clear what plan or direction he has for us. Then, back to Bileg for a day of academic assessments in English language proficiency, a program provided by Liberty University online. (Yes, it was amazing to watch 10 kids taking an exam via high-speed internet in central Cambodia!)
Wednesday was capped with a dinner and awards ceremony for the kids, at the team’s lodging facility’s restaurant. David and Tricia Delk coached the Bileg kids on God’s plan for sexual purity and got the boys and girls to pray a blessing of purity over each other (in groups). How exciting to see these wonderful kids excel in academics and Bible studies, and now understand the need to wait in purity for God to show them their future spouse.
Next post on Friday! Please be in prayer for our team as we move into the final two days of our trip—that God would use us in a big way to witness the power of our Savior.
