month in the Kuy village of O'Krouch

Our month in O'Krouch went well. We worked on
language using the LAMP method; working each day with a language
helper, learning a little, recording it, listening a lot and then
practicing what we learned with as many people as possible. Our
understanding of the Kuy language and lifestyle grew. Sundays, we
joined with a couple of local churches in Kuy villages. People were
very welcoming even though they were busy with their rice planting.
Nikki did great, learned a lot and had
plenty of fun playing new games with the kids and swimming in the
reservoir. Thanks for your prayers.
Ben (a Fijian Missionary) came up for a few days with four young
Cambodian men from his church in Phnom Penh. They worked with Pastor
Kon Kouen clearing a field and got to know a few people.
- that we will find ways to preserve and build
on our knowledge of Kuy language.
- for our language tutor, Ian, to come to Jesus.
- Next month, Met and Ben will be doing Strategy
Coordinator training. Pray for their work with Tom in developing a
Master Plan to reach the Kuy people of Cambodia.
