It's amazing how much our students after being filled with the Word and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit have a strong desire to witness and share the gospel they have just been taught. Last year there were 5 cell groups started by the students in various villages.
By May this year (2019) there were 27 cell groups. At this writing we are at 32 cell groups, Glory to God.
Below are some pictures of a few of the groups.
Pastor Nget SamOll and his wife Sokunthia traveled by Moto to a village to share the gospel. They brought the Word of God and led one of the village leaders to the Lord.
Sokunthia is a Pastor's wife, evangelist, mother and children's teacher. She has an evident love for Christ and for his people. She travels to various villages every week taking the Word of God to the parents of the children her and her daughter teach. Kysia her daughter is 12. She leads the worship with the children while mom teaches.
As she travels she shares the gospel and prays for the sick.
We reconnected with this man as we were visiting a church a couple of months ago. He had graduated from one of the Bible Schools 3 years ago and was so happy to see us. When we asked what he was doing now, he responded..."My wife and I have 9 cell groups. Every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday we go to each one and teach the Word of God."
It has always been our goal to see "fruit that remains". We are sure that there are stories like this one all over Cambodia. It this writing there have been over 750, two-year graduates from "The House Cambodia Bible Schools" These schools were started in 2011 and continue to grow each year. Thank you Lord for your blessing, favor and the honor of serving you through the teaching of the Word of God.
It's been a while since we sent out an e-newsletter, so we thought we'd send all our internet readers an update. God has been doing some mighty works, touching and changing lives while empowering our leaders with boldness through the Holy Spirit to believe God's Word and act on it. Below are a few testimonies to Bless and encourage you as well as us, and this is only the second month of school for 2019!
"I am so thankful to God, I part of this ministry. My student called me, to say her daughter is in hospital. Doctor say she dead but student say I will call my Pastor/Teacher. Doctor say it too late to call anyone, she passed away. My student called me and asked that I pray. I told her to put her hand on her daughter and I pray by phone. Daughter came back to life". The mother is 73 years old and the daughter who is 48 has now received Christ as her Savior. PTL
Power over witchcraft
Our Instructor talked with a man who could not come to class the first day of school because his friend was sick. He called, to say his friend was dying and the family called the witch doctor to come. Around the room, everyone was saying he would not live. Our student called the instructor to pray and he began praying in Jesus name. Ten minutes later the student called the instructor back and said the sick person had sat up and was now eating food.
Cleansing from Strongholds of darkness
Here we see Bible School leaders bringing the Truth of God's Word to a village home. They witness the Gospel of Jesus Christ and several received Him as Savior. They removed witchcraft symbols in the home and cleansed it through the power of the blood of Jesus Christ!
Since January, at least
10 have given their hearts to the lord.
6 have been miraculously healed,
1 raised from the dead.
All Glory to God! Our leaders and students continue to grow and learn as they go out into their communities every month bringing the truth of the Gospel to the hungry.

Missions Team from The House Modesto and South Eastern University.
We're excited to have a team from our home town in Modesto, CA visit us in March, just a few weeks away. It's going to be a busy time as they come and minister at the schools. We are combining all the schools into one location which can be a logistical challenge, bringing them in from the various provinces, but all are excited and looking forward to the teaching on Praise and Worship by Pastor Ben Brown of SEU along with his team. This team of 15 will not only be ministering at the Bible Schools but to the Children Outreaches as well. We know God will continue to do amazing things in our midst as the students learn
