Global Partners is asking for focused prayer this week for Alex Brown, missionary to Cambodia.
After spending six months in Cambodia on a short-term trip with Global Partners, Alex gained a deep appreciation for the Khmer people and for sharing the love of Christ with them. He is now following the call from God as a long-term missionary. God has put the desire in his heart to disciple youth and to help them understand that making the decision to follow Christ is worth the cost. Alex foresees a future where Cambodian youth are being raised up and sent out to share the gospel in communities where the good news has yet to be received.
And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” (Romans 10:15 NIV).
Prayer Points from Missionary Alex Brown:
Rainy season in Cambodia just wrapped up. The country was left with some of the worst flooding in recent history. Hundreds of thousands of Cambodians have been impacted due to the floods — lost lives, lost houses, lost possessions. Please pray for the country as cleanup and restoration efforts begin. Pray for wisdom and discernment for our churches and leaders as we figure out the best way to be the hands and feet of Jesus to people in our communities.
Thankfully, COVID 19 has managed to stay almost non-existent in Cambodia. However, that is in large part due to strict government guidelines and shutdowns. Until recently, churches have not been able to gather. Pray for all our Cambodian churches as they begin to meet in person again. Pray for guidance for our pastors on how they should lead during this time.
Pray for my team leaders, missionaries Tim and Tiffany Gallant who are currently in the United States. Pray for answers to their various needs and for peace of heart and mind.
Pray for me as I am currently doing language learning Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. via Zoom. Language learning is difficult on its own, and when you add doing it via Zoom every day, energy levels decrease dramatically.
One of our Phnom Penh churches just began teaching English to youth in the community again. In the past, this has been a successful platform for evangelism and discipleship. Please pray for this ministry. One class began last month, and another class begins today.
