About once a year or so, I volunteer to teach at the Highlands Bible College here in Cambodia. While the schedule would take me out from my regular routine as the place is over 100 kilometers away from Phnom Penh, I welcome the opportunity as teaching Bible college students is one of of the most effective ways to speed up the recruitment and the enablement of laborers here in this mission field and even beyond. This is the fist time that I taught 2 classes simultaneously in one block, Hermeneutics (2nd years) and Pastoral Theology (3rd years). It was a such a very tiring schedule for 2 weeks but its was a real fulfilling endeavor. On the last day of our Pastoral Theology class, a young man came to me and said "Thank you very much, Pastor, for all the the things you taught us here in this class. I have learned a lot in this class on how to become a better church worker and helper to my Pastor." Wow, that young man has learned something!

We praise the Lord for providing us a new facility to use for Academy International Cambodia. AIC has been sharing with the facilities of Bethany Baptist Church Bang Keng Kong 1, under Missionary Rainier Rolda for several years. With more students this year, we needed a much wider space. Our parents were all glad with the new building and school furnitures for the children to enjoy while learning academics from a Bible-based curriculum. Please continue to pray for sufficient resources to maintain renting the new building and please pray specifically for more dedicated teachers and educators to help us teach at AIC.
