Time For a Change

As I mentioned in my last email update, there have been a lot of changes recently at Children In Families. My personal life and ministry have clearly gone through a lot of changes as well in the nearly one-and-one-half years since I set foot in Cambodia. Consequently, I see that it calls for a change in my approach to communication. As I engaged in the initial period of cross-cultural adjustment and learning which were required to prepare me for the role that I would eventually fill, I tried to keep all of you, my "rope holders," updated in meaningful ways. My language learning journey, cultural adjustments, spiritual object lessons and updates on the status of my work with Children In Families were all sprinkled in somewhat randomly across all forms of media: this newsletter, my blog, prayer updates, & Facebook. 

Now that the ABLE program is really up & running, I am working to make my communication regarding these different facets of ministry more focused. Updates on the ABLE program will now be channeled through this monthly newsletter (hence the new look) and through ABLE's new Facebook page, while I'll continue to share the personal side of my journey through my blog and my own Facebook page. I'll try to include links to keep it all connected, as well as to allow you to stay in touch with the broader CIF picture, but this way people will know where to find the kind of information in which they are most interested. I'm still working through my prayer strategy as I feel this is a crucial area that I have unfortunately under-utilized. If you're on my prayer team currently, "stay tuned," and if you are not, but would like to be, send me a reply email and let me know.

Last month CIF said goodbye to our faithful, but part-time, expat nurse, Jenny, and hello to our new full time Khmer nurse, Lydia. Lydia is a great addition to our staff and having her full time will be a big benefit for the ABLE program since some of our kids with special needs are prone to health issues. 
Prayer & Praise:
Praise the Lord with us for:
  • God's provision of quality staff for the ABLE program. I couldn't be happier with both Srey Ny, our physiotherapist, and Savorn, our Community Rehabilitation Team staff.
  • The positive changes we are seeing in several of the children & families with whom we are working.
Please pray with us for:
  • Health for all of the children in CIF.
  • Emotional strength to deal with sometimes heartbreaking situations. 
  • Wisdom and clear direction as we continue to develop the program.
  • Provision of the necessary funds to meet the needs of these children and families.
