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!

David, Liney, and the Global Renewal Team
