October 2011

A Message of Hope

We begin October by considering how God moulds us and how we can encourage each other as he changes us. We will then explore together the first two chapters of 1 Peter.

As God’s word is opened up week by week pray that the Holy Spirit will take the spoken word and bring it to life in each of our hearts.

As part of that focus, on Sunday 9th October we will celebrate our 5th Anniversary together using the theme of "Encourage one another daily".

Plan to attend (if you can) and pray for (even if you can't) the Multi-cultural Workshop being held this month. Check out the notice below.

Multi-cultural Workshop – Julie Green (SIL)...

We all live and work in a cross-cultural setting and often in multicultural teams.  Misunderstandings can happen as a result.

Julie commented after a recent workshop in Phnom Penh:

Some were surprised to learn that other cultures had a rhyme and reason (and were not just randomly irrational as they seemed before).  Some learned that they have to ask questions and share with their teammates to be able to understand and be understood.  Some learned more about our amazing God – how He created this diversity & is reflected in it.

The Workshop is free. There will be six morning sessions:

            Wed 12, Thurs 13 & Fri 14 October from 8-11.30am

            Wed 19, Thurs 20 & Fri 21 October from 8-11.30am

If you are able to join then please contact Pastor Ivor. They are being held on the first floor of Bonita's Salon (right beside The White Alligator shop) on Sivutha Street opposite the De la paix Hotel.

  • Please continue to pray for Unity - especially for the Cambodian Church.
  • Use Colossians 1:9-14 as the basis for your praying
  • Pray for Kandy (near the end of her chemo treatment in the US) and her family.
