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.

Growing Food for God's People
God was surely in the details of Planting day last Saturday. We planted over 220 seedlings in record time, and had a lot of fun while doing so. Thanks to the 25 volunteers who came to help! Many pictures are on our Facebook page, “Nimmo Community Garden”.
The plants loved the rain on Monday night and have perked up from the shock of planting.
VOLUNTEER TIMES: (Please RSVP in case of weather) Tomorrow, Wednesday from 2:00 to 4:00 pm – (we’ll plant green beans, build teepees for them, weed the grape area).
Saturday from 9 am – 10:30am (we’ll lay straw as mulch and mulch flower beds & border)
Beware of wasps near toolbox next to trash can. They keep trying to build a small nest inside, but we keep removing it.
Thank you for supporting the garden with your prayers, service and goods!
In His Service,
