from our hearts…

For those of you who follow and support our ministry, you may have sensed a silence on our part for the last several months. It’s not that God isn’t moving; you’ll read below of His amazing, empowering, redeeming works. But, for us as a family, the last year has been the most painful…the most difficult (please don’t be alarmed–all is well). Suffice it to say that the enemy waged war, sent his emissaries,  and attempted to destroy us and Global Renewal. Keyword: attempted. Love wins. Justice wins. Jesus wins….always. As Joseph, we declare, “(the enemy) meant evil against me; but God meant it for good… to save many people alive.” (‭Genesis‬ ‭50‬:‭20‬) We share this because you care, you pray, and you believe. Those truths coupled with our Father, who taxes the farthest star to provide for His own, enables us to trudge forward–weary and a bit blood-smeared…but forward! As our friends, we want you to know that your prayers are effective and so needed. And, that your prayers are heard!!
Selah House–Cambodia
In the last few months, 3 more beauties have joined our family! S. is 5 and E. and C. are 12. We are so encouraged that the 5 year old was brought to our attention by her village chief moments before her grandmother intended to sell her. Thank God for men like the chief who are choosing life in Cambodia! E. is a lovely girl brought to us by Ruth Elliott of Daughters of Cambodia. Please keep that ministry and the great work they’re doing in prayer.
Selah House, Indonesia
This summer, we launched our first safehouse in Indonesia. Although it’s the largest Muslim nation in the world and mostly conservative, trafficking and exploitation of children are predominant. Comprised of thousands of islands, Indonesia is fertile ground for inconspicuous slavery. Many times, young girls are lured from their villages with promises of jobs in the big city. Their final destination is often remote islands guarded by men with rifles. The dream job replaced with satisfying unwanted customers.
We have been actively pursuing leads in the brothels and in doing so, made many friends–simple women with broken hearts and shattered hope. God is opening an amazing opportunity to begin community outreaches in the brothels–imagine: literacy, computer, sewing, salon skills being taught to these precious ladies so that they can have a fresh start! Pray the doors open, friends–you are part of the harvest!

Vietnamfrom Death to Life
The Vietnam War ended in 1975, but it was not until 20 years later that Vietnam released its official estimate of 3.5 million casualties.

Currently, over 9,000 people receive Jesus annually through our partner organization. As a result, there is a critical shortage of pastors. Global Renewal is actively training 120 students in the South and plan to train another 60 in the North. It only costs $60/ to equip a pastor (food, board, and transportation).


Hai ministering in the Drug Rehab Center

Changed People Change People
Chu, the son of a high ranking official, used to be a drug addict and a thief. He received Jesus and became a witness to the local police and officials. Chu graduated the training program and has since started 7 house churches!

Hai attended our training and shared how it caused him to be an effective leader. He now runs a drug rehab center for  recovering drug addicts.  The residents leave the center changed; many go into ministry and make positive impacts in their society.

Reaching Cambodia


Sunday Evangelistic Outreach–over 400 people came out to hear the Word


Youth led in worship as Sunday School girls danced

Your continued intercession and generosity enables the continued work of the Spirit in Cambodia, Vietnam and Indonesia. We believe the atmosphere is changing and the best days are yet to come! 

In love,
the Global Renewal Team
and
David & Liney Chacko
