She decided to carry the cross of Jesus in her family

She committed to carrying the cross of Jesus.

TESTIMONY: she decided to confront her father during the ancestor holiday.  Theary , one of our intern volunteers, shared her confrontation with her father during the recent ancestor holidays, Pchum Ben.  Some of you might know and some of you might not know much about the holidays that were held last week. It is called Pchum Ben Days, the time when Khmer people follow their rituals at Buddhist temples. They bring over food, and gifts to the temple believing that those things will be transferred to the in spiritual world to their ancestors. It is also believed that their deceased parents or relatives's spirits locked up in hell are released for the first 15 days of the dark moon in order for them to come to get food because they are hungry. At 4 AM in the morning during these days, they prepare balls of sticky rice on trays for their nearby temples. People gather there to listen to monks chanting and invite the spirit to come, then they start to scatter the food around the temple building.  During this time, children are supposed to help their parents carry food to the temple to offer to Buddhist monks. Out in a community village, there is social pressure if you don't do it. Theary who chose Jesus a few years ago, had faced this sort of pressure when she did not want to comply with doing the ritual. Every year, her father kept talking negatively about Christianity, he disliked the fact that his daughter chose to follow Jesus.  Theary felt emotionally disturbed and rejected because she loves her parents, and her family but she doesn't want to come against her conviction either.  She told us that she had been praying about her visit to her parents during this holiday, and hoped that her parents would not force her to practice any rituals. Unlike a few years before, this year her father seemed to be different. He did not pressure her to do anything, but accepted her presence when she paid the visit. Theary really thanked God for allowing her to be able to spend time with her family, and set aside those rituals.  In Khmer society, religious discrimination can still be seen. To be a Christian means a big sacrifice in life. one has to be ready to accept rejection not only among their peers, but also among their family members. It is just like what the Bible talks about carrying the cross. You have to be ready to be denied by people you love. Yet, when we obey, and embrace His Love, we will gain more. In Theary’s story , we saw that her prayers really softened her father's heart. She believes that sooner or later, her father and other members in the family will come and be saved like her.

Her persistent prayer is powerful

HER PERSISTENT PRAYER IS POWERFUL

TESTIMONY: She had been praying for the salvation for her mom. The Lord answered her prayers. HER MOM USED TO BE VERY RELIGIOUS In the past, whenever an opportunity came, Rotha's mother would rally her neighbors to implement some pagan rituals. She was known to be one who enthusiastically joined in any of these religious activities. However, over the past few years she has witnessed the changed life, and the joy in her daughter, Rotha.  Because of this mother decided she wanted to hear more of the gospel of the Lord Jesus.  VILLAGE POTATO FARMS IN CRISIS, BUT GOD SHOWS HIS POWER.  Before the time for potato harvesting last year, Rotha encouraged her mother to declare the power of Jesus upon their potato farm amid the market and the yield crisis. Most of the farms in the village did not do very well, and the market price dropped quite badly. However, it was different with the farm of Rotha's mom.  Trusting God, Rotha prayed and her mom's farm yielded at a different time when the market price soared. Moreover, the potatoes looked great as you could see in the photo above. They were very healthy. God really blessed her mom's farm.  Rotha's mom thanked her the prayers. This year Rotha’s mom decided to declare the prayers upon her farm herself.  God is still faithful. The farm seems to be producing quite early while other farms don't. Rotha 's mother couldn't deny the miracle of God. She glorified Jesus for blessing and protecting her farm.  SHE JOINED OUR BIGGEST EVENT OF THE YEAR …ASIAN CHRISTIAN CONFERENCE 2018  Her mother commuted to town to join the biggest Christian outreach event in Cambodia with her daughter. While at ACC she finally and heartily accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior. Rotha's persistent prayers were very powerful. She had been praying for her mom's salvation for many years. Now, her mom has come to the know the Lord Jesus as well as witnessing the power of God on her potato's farm. 1 Thessalonian 5:16-22 "16 Always be joyful. 17 Continually be prayerful. 18 In everything be thankful, because this is God's will for you in the Messiah Jesus. 19 Do not put out the Spirit's fire. 20 Do not despise prophecies. 21 Instead, test everything. Hold on to what is good. 22 Keep away from every kind of evil."

His Grace and Unconditional Love touched and changed me

His Grace and Unconditional Love touched and changed me

TESTIMONY: A life story of a young girl who is staying in New Life Fellowship’s woman dormitory.

Hello everyone, my name is Chan Srey Keo. I am a 26 year-old student from Takeo province, presently, staying in the Woman dorm, which has enabled me to better understand my personal values, the unconditional love, and the grace of God. For me, dorm is not just an accommodation and a place to study, but also a place where I can develop my relationship with people especially my relationship with God.

I accept the fact that staying together with a lot of people from different places is not that easy. Yet, we found things in common. Each of us needs future, and life-developments.

I have learned a lot while staying in the dorm and I can confidently express my weaknesses. I can both easily weep and laugh with others in many different circumstances. They are always there for me whenever I need. Whenever a situation happens, they approach me to encourage me, comfort me, warn me, and sometimes they teach me about how to manage stress related work issues, and emotional issues.

The dorm is a place that provides an opportunity for me to grow, to develop as a leader, while building faith in God. I have come to know the one True God, and build my relationship better with Him. I have also found opportunities to serve in different ministries in the church.

I so appreciate staying in the dorm. I am where I am today because of living in the dorm. I thank God for this place where I found Him personally. I really thank all the leaders who have provided an opportunity for me to have a future.

She was set free from demonic strongholds

TESTIMONY: A young woman recently migrated to Phnom Penh received Jesus as her Lord and Savior and was set free from many demons This young woman, about 25 years old, came to Phnom Penh city to look for a job. She is very new to the city. She then made a friendship with a Christian friend. They both become very good friends. She came to the church service on Sunday morning and it was her first time. At the end of the church service, she came up front to the altar call to meet our prayer team. As soon as they laid hands on her and began to pray, she began to weep, and she admitted that her life was coming to the end, no hope to live any longer. She said that she had been hurt by many people including people who are close to her. She said the struggles she had been bearing was so serious that she began to be negatively affected psychologically. She said that someone cast a spell on her. Since then, she had been sick all the time. In respond to the spell, she had sought different traditional healers to help relieve the spells but her situation got even worst. During the prayers, she asked to have her Takrut (Waist amulet), worn in her waist for protected power, cut off. Our prayer team member described that once the amulet was cut off, it released very putrid smells. She then fell on the floor and noticed that she was demon possessed. Our prayer team started to pray over her casting out demons who had dwelled in her. Many bad spirits came out in the forms of yelling voice. Some bad spirit’s voice claimed that they had dwelled in her family generation. They even attempted to attack one of our prayer team member. We thank God for the power and healing for this young girl. It took our prayer team almost 4 hours to cast out all the demons, and release the power of the healing of God for this young lady. As she woke up, she felt relieved and refreshed. She told us that the night before she came to church, she had a dream. In her dream, she saw some shining people standing with some lighting glows surrounding on their heads, and she finally arrived in front of a cross. Mark 16:17 "These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues” "
