Please Pray: Cambodia Flooded

Here around Phnom Penh we have been dealing with flooding for several weeks already, and it is still raining. Our house hasn't flooded yet, but the drains along the road are full.

Most of the lower areas around Chba Ampo have flooded. Last month we were out visiting in homes that are now filled with water. Residents have been forced to leave and are staying in shelters on nearby roads situated at a slightly higher elevation.

These people are discouraged, tired and hungry. Pray that we will have wisdom in doing what we can to show them the love of Christ during these difficult times. It's not easy when you don't have the ability to help them all. Please pray for our students as well. Many of them are crossing the water by small bridges or by boat. News reports tell us that the recent high waters have resulted in the deaths of nearly 200 Cambodians.

Thank you.
