THE CITY CENTRAL CHURCH
A couple months ago, the TCM Cambodia team decided to start planting a new local church because we believed the existing home group needed to grow and needed formal corporate worship and congregational structure where the individual member can also serve and help expand the ministry. The Monday home group for months has helped foster discipleship and friendship among Khmer members and missionaries. This year is, we believe, is a good time to start a church!
Praise the Lord because we just held our first worship service last Sunday on the 4th floor of Bermejo’s rented apartment. A few came but it was a good start.:-) I translated for Pastor James because he doesn’t speak Khmer yet. Whew! 🙂 Julia sang for the offertory song and Agape led the praise and worship time. We did not give any part to the locals yet but we plan to slowly delegate to them some responsibilities in the church. As Pastor James shared with us:
Also, we are blessed to have you and other friends who helped us buy the materials and furniture’s we needed for our church. Thank you so much for your help and prayers. I truly appreciate our partnership in the gospel. You become an integral part of this worthy endeavor to reach out to the lost , un-reached and unchurched individuals. May God richly bless you in return.

Training and mentoring is vital so we are conducting two classes for men and women every Thursday night.
February 1st was our first day of class for Bibliology course. Pray for wisdom for these women because Theology concepts are very challenging for them. I have taught both in Khmer and English but still they had difficulty grasping some of the concepts of the Bible doctrines. Pray for teachers, Julia Liles and Agape Bermejo as I will be away for four weeks.
