Jonathan & Heleen’s story
“We are very excited to see God at work here. It’s exciting to see how God’s Church is rising up in Cambodia. However, there are still many who are unreached and haven’t heard the Gospel. The task is not yet finished.
“Missionary Training College is very valuable and training is essential. We believe – like the disciples who were trained by Jesus for three years – we also should take time to prepare and to study the Word before we go.
“God has equipped us to become disciple-makers among Cambodian Christians, because of the great need of bringing believers to maturity in their faith. We encourage the Cambodian members to walk in the specific path God has prepared for them.”
Corne is building meaningful relationships, and sharing life among Khmer believers. “I feel so blessed to be able to do discipleship together, combined with practical work.
