Since opening the doors of the multipurpose building, it has been wonderful to see the community of Saang embrace opportunities for growth and empowerment. Children are learning to read in their own language. Pastors are signing up for Bible courses. Young people, who might otherwise be wandering their neighborhood aimlessly, are being taught practical skills and the principles of service and leadership. From English students who now can study sheltered from the sun and rain to toddlers enjoying our nursery as their mothers attend church, the multipurpose building offers something for everyone.
Here are a few recent highlights from this amazing building:
- The first two ecumenical Youth Fellowship just took place in the downstairs meeting area, with nearly 200 youth from local churches joining for a time of worship, prayer, learning, and fun.
- The reading room is now open. It is amazing to watch children and teens enjoy access to more books than most Cambodians see in a lifetime.
- A very special gathering of women from area churches met with Lisa Bevere last month. They each receive one of Lisa’s books in the Khmer language and were challenged by Lisa to walk out their faith in boldness and authority.
The multipurpose building is such a blessing. We are so thankful for your faithful partnership. Please keep the multipurpose building and all who enter its doors in your prayers, that God would be glorified and the community of Saang would be equipped to reach Cambodia for Him!
