Acts 2:42 The Believers Form a Community
42 All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper) and to prayer.

When I first preached in CFSR in 2009, I spoke from this passage. It summarises what a Church is “all about”. We are a Community; we believe passionately in the word of God (the Apostles’ teaching); we need each other’s fellowship and support (often sharing meals together—and, each month, meeting for the Lord’s Supper); and we desperately need to pray.

I have been encouraged as we have come together as the CFSR Community over recent weeks to pray (in one place at our house on Wednesdays at 7pm; and just where we are at 8pm for five minutes each evening). We need prayer as we seek God’s will for the way forward for our “local, international church”.

John 13 34 So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. 35 Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”

We need also to be aware of “the world” where God has placed us. For many our first “calling” is to disciple and build up the Khmer church. But we are being watched—every day—by those who (like us) are also “strangers in a foreign land”. There are many “English speakers” in Siem Reap who need to hear the Good News—an unreached people group.
That is why our Mission Statement has a threefold purpose.
"Providing fellowship, nurture and outreach to the English-speaking community of Siem Reap."
