Lynn current 30 Years (and counting)

August 1980 began 30 years of ministry. I started out knowing I needed to learn how to do ministry, and I was faithfully discipled in it. Now I know that what I really need is to know the One for whom I labor still more and more. It is knowing and trusting Jesus and constantly growing in that faith that keeps us faithful and committed.

For a few years now I have been involved part time in a ministry called ReFocusing Leaders. We run year-long networks of cross cultural workers here in Cambodia who are seeking to renew and refine their vision for ministry and become more intentional about their personal and ministry development. I want to see these servants of God walking faithfully in what God has equipped and called them to do. I particularly enjoy getting to know and encouraging other women in their personal growth and their ministries as a table facilitator.

 Occasionally people ask me, “What does your typical day look like?” There is no answer to that question as there are no typical days! As any woman with a family knows, a good bit of my time is taken up in keeping my house running and taking care of my family. I have always felt that I wanted to be actively involved in my children's education. One of the ways I do this is by participating in a Mom's in Touch group praying weekly for their school and for our children. I feel this is my best contribution to the school. However, in line with my passion to see God's children effective and     faithful long term I also get involved in helping to orient new teachers to Phnom Penh and life in Cambodia. I hope they will settle in well and be effective in their work here as long as they are led to stay.

Communication and prayer are my major responsibilities related to our ministry to the Kuy. I prepare and send out our Kuy Updates and newsletters and keep the website updated. I also act as supervisor for a couple of our MUP missionary women. In addition I take on some other projects now and then. Earlier this year I helped organize a 3 day workshop on “Coaching.” I am also assisting one of our fellow missionaries on a Bible story project. He is putting together series of stories for evangelism and discipleship in Khmer. I help by reading them over; looking for simplicity, clarity and accuracy of expression. Last month I volunteered to help with a week long Vacation Bible School for expatriate children – fun and exhausting.
        For many years now I have also participated in a weekly women's Bible study. This is a major contributor to my own spiritual growth.  I am in it for the long haul. Thanks for your faithfulness in praying for me over the years.
