February 2015

Colossians 2:9-10 (NLT)
9 For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body. 10 So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority.

During February our preaching focus will be on the first two chapters of Colossians. The theme of this “prison letter” from Paul is the complete adequacy of Christ as contrasted with the emptiness of mere human philosophy. The warnings about heresy and false teaching seem just as relevant in the twenty-first century as they were in the first!

On-going prayer for the future ministry of CFSR
We are continuing to seek God’s leading for the future ministry, direction and location of CFSR. The specific Saturday prayer times in January were helpful and we believe that God will show us the way forward as we are open to Him.
We praise God that we have been able to obtain local approval for our re-registration from the local department. Our papers have now been forwarded to the Ministry in Phnom Penh.
