“Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matthew 28:18-20


“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Acts 1:8

Monthly Global Partner Focus

For the month of February, please be praying for our global partners in Cambodia, the Ecklund family. Here are specific ways they have asked you to pray over them this month:

  • There are several new unbelieving families at the school. Please pray that they will hear the truth and receive it. We know they are not drawn to the school by accident. There is a new group of Chinese moms from the school meeting together to study the Bible. Some are believers and some are not. Please pray for fruitfulness from that time.
  • Please pray for our girls, as they have a very busy second semester. Pray their eyes would be focused on the Lord, even in the midst of so much going on.
  • Please pray for Adam as he continues to lead the school (wisdom, faithfulness, grace) and Emily as she takes care of the girls and volunteers at the school.
  • Please pray for our health, both physically and spiritually. Spiritually, that we would remain focused on the work the Lord has us in Cambodia to do. Physically, that we would be kept healthy in this season, especially as mosquito borne illnesses are high at this time of year.
