Our training farm in Cambodia is up and running complementing similar program in Indonesia and Philippines. By the grace of God, the self sustaining agricultural enterprise ministry is finally taking shape.
God willing, the model farms in Cambodia and Philippines will be refurbished to have better training facilities.
Prison Fellowship Cambodia has rolled out a pilot scheme to help out poor families to have such self sustaining enterprise too, though the original idea is to help the volunteer pastors and unaffiliated pastors as well. If successful, it will be rolled out in earnest in collaboration with a micro finance company whose owners are Christian and are interested to see charity as part of their corporate social responsibility.
All glory and honor to our Lord Jesus.
I am honored to be invited by Prison Fellowship Cambodia to share a timely message about the impending difficult economic times and the need for preparation in this conference in which 68 pastors and 17 ministry workers from 15 provinces attended. All thanks and glory to our Lord Jesus.
(Before the plane touched down into Phnom Penh airport, I could see from the skies that the surrounding provinces were severely flooded. Prior to this trip, I visited another farm in Olongapo, Philippines from 26 to 30 July 2018. It had rained continuously for 6 weeks and Olongapo was flooded before I arrived. By the grace of God, the rain stopped and there was sunshine for the few days I was there before the rain returned again after I left. Thanks be to God for His journey mercy allowing me to accomplish His given missions with hardly any disruption.)
Part of my exhortation for physical preparation to the pastors is to have self sustaining agricultural enterprise.
Matt 24: 45-46
45 “A faithful, sensible servant is one to whom the master can give the responsibility of managing his other household servants and feeding them. 46 If the master returns and finds that the servant has done a good job, there will be a reward.
