Overseas Missions


Pray for the growth and health of the newly forming United Methodist Church in Cambodia.

Did you know that only "one generation ago, Christians in Cambodia were nearly all massacred in the killing fields of Kymer Rouge. But from the ashes, to gospel grew new roots and people have come to Christ in all of Cambodia's 19 provinces. Pray today for the children of this holocaust, who are now leaders of churches and families". (From Through the Bible's Prayer Request.) Continue praying for the good health and ministry of Clara Biswas, our missionary and for successful ministry with the street children.
