Today I has the joy, and I do mean joy, of meeting three pastors/missionaries in Phnom Penh.
Francis Velasco and his wife are missionaries for the Philippines launching their church in phnom Penh in February. They are already meeting with new converts and bible study groups. He also introduced me to 23 boys and teens in an orphanage - who live, eat, sleep and bathe very simply. Then we went to a small group of rooms at the river and invited the tenants to a meeting at his church on Saturday.
Dan Powers is a neat man - having served as pastor in the US for many years, he has left comforts at 63 years of age to assist and train Cambodian church planters. He shared his burden and many stories he has experienced in his first 6 months in Cambodia and I shed a number of tears, being moved.
Savonn is a Cambodian pastor with an attendance of 350 on Sundays - amazing! His wife in her 30s has breast cancer. He told me of her treatments and future breast removal - an attempt to get a step ahead of this aggressive cancer. What a dear family.
These men fired my soul today. I loved every minute of our time together.
