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
"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord" Luke 2:11
It's been a exciting and wonderful year for us here in Cambodia. God has outdone Himself pouring out His spirit and love for the people of Cambodia. We are so thankful to all of you who have partnered with us in this journey. Your prayers and support have made it possible for many lives to be changed as they encounter the truth of God's Word. A New Year is upon us and we're anxiously awaiting what God will do in this new year.
Trip to India
This year we were given the opportunity to visit two ministries in India to share about our THC Bible Schools
in Cambodia. It was an amazing trip, teaching, preaching and developing new and lasting friendships.
For our first stop we met and spent 3 days with Pastor Kode Abraham from The House India churches. Don was asked to give a dedicatory prayer for a new church building deep in the forest for tribal people to worship.
For the safety of our dear friends in India, we ask that you do not repost to social media, any of the pictures on this newsletter. Thank you.
After a ribbon cutting ceremony everyone walked into the church (without walls) for their first worship service. It was an amazing time. After worship, Don brought the message.
Don also was given opportunity to speak to the pastors of this amazing ministry at their monthly leadership meeting. We learned and were so blessed by our visit with them. We made lasting friendship.
Next, we went North to another ministry in Bhadrachalam.
We traveled north about 6 hours and met with our new friends Tara and Daniel. Their ministry serves approximately 5000 families with over 70 leaders. Another amazing ministry reaching the unreached tribal areas of India
It was a busy 4 days of teaching during the day and preaching in churches in the evenings.
For the safety of our dear friends in India, we ask that you do not repost to social media, any of the pictures on this newsletter. Thank you
On our last day we were honored with flower leys and shawls. Again God has given us more friends and prayer partners in ministry. We look forward to these lasting relationships. Our hearts are full with gratitude to our dear friends in the states who made this trip possible. Again we thank you, thank you.
Back At Our Home Base
Students Share the Gospel
Ministry is Growing
Students are taking the Word of God out to their villages and sharing the gospel. Numerous reports of salvations and healing are being reported back to us.
More Growth - Bible Schools and Children's Ministry
We'd like to introduce you to Heather our new team member. She is a native from Canada with Korean ancestry. She will be helping build our new Children's Ministry working to strengthen our new teachers.
"I am really thankful and give glory to God who lead me to meet these wonderful people of God, Maria and Don Whitney and Pastor Bunreth. It is a great privilege to team up with these sincere servants of the Lord for Kingdom ministry.
The beginning of January 2019, we will start to train four or five children's teachers. We will introduce them new teaching methods and various resources that can help them in teaching children the Word of God… pray that we can have the heart of Jesus Christ who loves children and sees their inner-being as Kingdom citizens (Matt 19:14). To God be the glory. "
