Pas. Mike with Anna, Anthany, Liney                     Graduates of Vietnam Training Center
and David 


Pastoral team from Dallas together with                             Our Phnom Penh team
CRC graduates and team from Singapore

Visit from Pastor Hayes
We were so blessed by the visit of Pastor Mike Hayes and his team of pastors – Stephen Hayes, James DeMelo, and David Binion to Phnom Penh during our recent graduation. They went on to Singapore where Pastor Mike ministered powerfully on The Blessing of Abraham at Cornerstone Community Church. Their visit to Vietnam was also very special. Pastor Hayes’ timely word of encouragement lifted the spirits of the persecuted leaders and brought about a new level of friendship and partnership with the persecuted church.

Impacting Communities!
This was what the MegaCare team from Potter’s House, Dallas did when they visited us in Cambodia. They fed an entire village of 600 people (in Takeo province) while our students sang and shared the gospel.

They also blessed each family with rice and other provisions. MegaCare visited two other communities in Phnom Penh where thirty people received the Lord and many were healed. Thank you, Pastor Guynes and MegaCare!
Seminar for Local Pastors
The day after the graduation, we held a seminar for the local pastors. We could tell that they were really blessed by the ministry of the Covenant pastors, and we pray that the anointing will go with them back to the provinces of Cambodia!
Meet Daphne
Daphne Lee, from Cornerstone Church, Singapore, felt the call of God to come to Cambodia. In her own words, “I have been tremendously blessed by my time here, under the ministry of Pastors David and Liney Chacko, and I know that this won’t be the last of my trips to Cambodia. Whilst here, I helped with the youth outreach, which includes a weekly youth service, as well as English classes for university students. I also enjoyed interacting with the students at the training center, as well as the children at the safe house, and will miss them immensely when I return home.”

Alumni Wedding

Kim Cheng and Seang Heak graduated from our center and served on staff for a season. It was a joy to see them united in marriage in their province, Kampong Cham. Both of them are currently serving the Lord together in the province. Congratulations, Kim Cheng and Seang Heak!

May 17th–Freedom is Here! Benefit Concert

In years past, we experienced great generosity from all of you during our benefits. This year, David and Nicole Binion and Johnnyswim will be in concert to aid Chain Reaction, our anti-trafficking initiative.  All proceeds will benefit Selah House and prevention strategies we have implemented in SE Asia. Please plan on joining us as we sing and declare freedom over the nations. Admission is free and the concert will be held at Covenant Church, Carrollton TX at 7pm.

David’s Parents in Phnom Penh
Joseph Chacko (age 83) and Annamma Chacko (age 80) travelled across the world to visit Cambodia. They loved giving food to the hungry and praying for the sick. It was such an inspiration to see their zeal–proving that you’re never too old to be on fire for God!

Graduation Time in Cambodia
Eighty pastors and leaders joined us in celebrating the graduation of our students who complete their 9 month intensive training course. Here is a testimony from one of the graduates:
“Hi everyone, my name is Rann. I come from Ratanakiri Province. When I first came to the training center to study the Bible, I didn’t know how to speak or write in Khmer (the national language). However, the Lord taught me to how to read and write in 7 months…Now, I am even trying to learn English! I love to pray and to worship, and I want God to use me mightily to evangelize my nation!”
Meet Jay
Jay Samar is serving the Filipino Congregation of Cornerstone Community Church, Singapore. God gave him a burden for Cambodia during his university days. His mission trips to CRC have strengthened his desire to serve this nation. Jay senses that God has a great plan for Cambodia and its youth have a vital role to play. We have been so blessed by the Filipino congregation and their frequent visits to help out in Cambodia–special thanks to Pastors Jay, Hazeil, and Brenda!

A Little Note from a Big Heart

The dear children at Selah House are growing quickly and bring joy to all who know them! The note above was given to us by one of the girls at Christmas and is from their hearts to each of you who pray for them and give to their cause…We are grateful to you!

 

 

We just landed in the U.S. and look forward to seeing many of you while we’re here. It’s been a challenging yet fruitful season in Asia–
your love and encouragement has always propelled us onward.
We love you all and thank God for the privilege of serving Him together with you!

It is Well
Although these past few months have brought their share of challenges and battles, we know that He who sits on the throne does all things well. With great gratitude we acknowledge all of you who have prayed, encouraged, given, and believed with us. You are bringing RENEWAL to the nations!
We are especially grateful for the amazing guests, teams, and volunteers that have blessed us with their lives. Special thanks to the sending churches: Cornerstone Community Church–Singapore, Overcomer Covenant Church–Seattle, and our own Covenant Church–Carrollton who sent us an amazing long-term volunteer, Anthany Arosanera. In typical Asian fashion, we clasp our hands, incline our heads and say to all of you, “Akun!”

Fishing Lessons

Hungry people often come to us for rice and milk for their babies. We do what we can to provide for them, but the goal is to make them self-sustaining. Here’s one of our favorite stories: 

Om Saroum’s comfortable lifestyle came to an abrupt halt when her husband died. Poverty hit her hard. She also had contracted AIDS through her husband. When she sought help, her wealthy cousin chased her away. Found crying outside a gate, our team brought her in, comforted her, and introduced her to Christ. Today, Saroum loves the Lord and rarely comes to church without at least one new visitor! Recently we were able to purchase a sewing machine for her so that she could support herself.

We are so happy to provide opportunities for the poor to be self-employed and sustained. Often, startup money for a simple micro-business (raising pigs, chickens) can be life-altering for an entire family or community. Our prayer is that every person in His House be provided for…Our God is more than enough!

Fire in Vietnam

After learning about church planting, one student decided to implement it in a remote, mountain village. It was not long before the Communist police arrived with some “hired help”. They beat him with an iron pole, and X-rays verified that his cheekbone was broken in 4 places. Unable to talk or eat, he braced himself for surgery. When the student’s young wife entered the hospital room, she asked, “Isn’t our God the God of miracles??” Something began to happen. Overnight, the Lord healed him. He was discharged in the morning–talking and ready to eat!

Vietnam Renewal Center’s mandate is to prepare the Body for the coming revival in Vietnam. Fifteen house churches have been initiated by our students in the course of one year. We are excited about their graduation on October 26th! Pray revival in!

4th Annual
Bike-a-thon / 5K

For all our friends in the Dallas area, you can walk, run, or bike in support of Global Renewal. This year’s event will include games, raffles, bounce houses, and loads of fun! Mark your calendars for October 27, 2012 and check here for more information and registration. 

Prayer Needs

Please pray for us, our children, staff, and students as we fight a tenacious enemy. We are convinced that God will soon crush Satan under our feet.

  • For those who are called to come and assist us in all 3 nations (Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia)
  • Rescue of children. In the last 3 months, over 40 children have been found dead in Phnom Penh–victims of organ trafficking.
  • Upcoming training camp and graduation in Vietnam with Pas. Gordon Banks.  

    We thank God for the privilege of serving Him together with you!
