Cooler weather in Cambodia

We are entering our Cambodian winter season. Although we don't see snow or extreme cold here we do have cooler weather. Which for a national is cold. This season brings colds and all kinds of runny noses, coughs and all that is entailed with sickness. This weather is extremely difficult for the older people in Cambodia. Typical Cambodian housing in the province where we live consists of a one room home constructed with leaves or tin and bricks. The homes placements are usually perched above running or still water for lack of not owning property. This can create even a colder night sleep for the ones with no blankets or covers. Please pray for the people with no blankets to find warmth and comfort and for the older people, that their relatives will help them during this winter season. Also pray for health for babies and moms, young and old alike. 

Thank you for your prayers

GCCS men's group

GCCS men's group is just that we are a group of men that are wanting fellowship. We work all week and we are looking for a time to talk together and share our lives together. We have just started our group, we are asking the question to each man, what is the desire of the men's group? Each man has had a opportunity to voice what he would like the men's group to be. The men all have a voice in the direction of the outside trips and the teachings that they feel they need to be encouraged and straightened in. I believe this group is learning more about leading themselves through our times spent together. Speaking openly and discussing challenges that life is giving them. I see growth in each man in the group in a short time.

We had a flat tire on the way and found this awesome village man to help us.

Outreach teams come to help with the day to day ministry of IHSI. A team of 8 ladies from Wisconsin joined us this past summer helping with children's ministry, teaching English, helping in our New Beginnings Center with Sak Saum, Youth group, Church meetings, village ministries and home care and visits, as well as just building relationships with all the staff and people involved with IHSI/Sak Saum.

We celebrate the relationships, friendships and partnerships that an outreach provides, the memories, laughter, the tears, the heard times and the blessed times all come together with a meal with the ones whom you just spent the last weeks with building the Kingdom of God in Cambodia.
