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!
    David, Liney, and the Global Renewal Team
