no doubt! Don’t wait anymore, just pray to him and He
hears you then He will answer it.
May God bless you abundantly and I love you all.

HARVEST SVAY RIENG CHURCH
Pastor Visal and Nary Sam Oeun had appointed by Pastor James Anson and
Pastor Grayson Allen from Church Unlimited in New Zealand on 29 August
2010 as a pastor in Harvest Svay Rieng Church in Svay Rieng province
Cambodia. We‟ve all been really encouraged by how the Sunday church is
going. There are many people coming regularly to the church service now. The
aim is to introduce the people in Svay Rieng to the Living God, by discussing
questions they have about Life/God, by presenting the Gospel to them through
various ways such as media, dance, drama, testimonies, messages, along with
giving keys to successful living based upon the Bible.

Praise the Lord! Now we have about 100+ of our church members come to
know Jesus Christ in our base (Harvest Svay Rieng Church) but with our
observation about 65-70 members come to worship God regularly in every
week. Our concern is because of our base/church is so small, not enough space
for our church members seating/worshiping.

Once a month we‟re going to do an outreach as well. Some of church members


shared their testimonies, and there was a dance and song item organised by our
worship team leaders.

And it‟s great to see the people taking more responsibility in running the
church services, and growing in confidence. We‟ve finally got some
youths who are bold enough to join the worship team which is a real
breakthrough.

Please pray that they would continue to grow in faith, in character &
that they would have the opportunity to reach their full potential in life.

HAPPY KIDSMINISTRY
MINISTRY 

Heaps of kids are coming and loving the new upbeat songs and program. We
continue to do a great job with the Children‟s Ministry. We plan the various
programs each week. There is a weekly Children‟s Church at our base Svay
Rieng town, Traok village, Prash Bakkor village, Moha Want village and Pau
Prey village now.

We have also started a training program for Children‟s Church workers from
various local churches, teaching them how to prepare a session, tell stories,
teach memory verses and so on.

About 200 kids come to worship God with Children‟s Ministry totally.

TESTIMONY

My name is Meas live in Traok village, Svay Rieng


Province, Cambodia.

Last week when I woke up from my sleeping in the


afternoon immediately my stomach was very
stomach ache but I don‟t know why I have
stomachache like this because I did not eat any
foods before this time.

I really was afraid because my parents do not stay at home at that time but I
remember about my God Jesus Christ that teacher Kunthea told me that he has
all powers even the sickness so I was prayed to God for my stomach ache that
God will heal me because my parents did not stay at home and also this time I
need to go to school too.

Immediately God had a miracle for me God replied for my praying and it was
stop stomach ache. I was very happy and praise to God and thanks God so
much for doing the miracle for me.

And after I went to school I was told my friend about the miracle that God
dose with me. And I also encouraged to my friend that if you have any
problems you should to pray to God Jesus Christ he will reply for your prayer.

To God be Glory always  Amen.


HAPPY MOBILE CLINIC 
KIDS MINISTRY

Mobile Clinic (MC) is a part of Harvest Training Cambodia supporting


from Australia. Praise the Lord, because our prayer God has answered
and now we have formed our Mobile Clinic in each villages that we are
working, it is amazing that God open the door for all these villages and
blessing them to have a Mobile Clinic.
Anyway, with this small project we were cooperating with Ministry of
Health in Svay Rieng province for running our Mobile Clinic in the
village we are working as well. Mean that, every time that we come to
do the clinic in each village, check and examine the patients we always
cooperated with Health Center, the chief of health center always sent
their doctor and nurse to help us in the village that we went to do the
clinic.
This program is the key for sharing the Words of God to the people in
each village we are working. We do with people, both believer and
unbeliever. This is what God willing us to do 

Below is our strategy to do with the patients:

First Second
Sharing Number to Patient got first
the Patients number come to
checking by Doctor

Fourth Third

Christian Leaders come to the

THE POWER OF VISION

The leader and the manager are distinctively different. The


manager is only focusing on routine daily activities and to
keep things right while the leader thinks ahead or pictures
about the future how it should be looking like. That‟s what
it means here by - VISION. There are ample of examples
of visionary leaders in the bible. “Without vision, the
people cast off restraint” – Proverb 29:18. This month
reflection, I would like to draw some key important points
on the characteristic of the visionary leaders. One of the
great visionary leaders from the bible is well known of
Nehemiah in the book of Nehemiah. If we read Nehemiah,
chapter 1 and 2, he was emotionally weeping of his
nation‟s ruin of the wall of Jerusalem. The great city had Sam Oeun Visal
been burnt down and ruined, the people were captured as
captives to other countries. Nehemiah mourned dearly for his nation and he prayed to
the God of shalom to help strengthening his nation. There was a thought came to his
head and that he went to the King to describe all the accounts of the city. In the end,
he asked the King for permission to rebuild the wall of the city, and he was granted by
the King. So Nehemiah got ready to set out to the target area.

Here are the eight characteristics of the visionary leader of Nehemiah as I did the
study on the bible: 1. He becomes an Agent of Change - He was hurt by the news but
felt responsible for changing the situation. (1:3) “(They) are in great distress and
reproach, and the wall of Jerusalem is broken down and its gates are burned with
fire.” 2. He prays, plans, and prepares - When the king asked him, (2:4) he prayed
first. He already had a plan so when the king asked him: He could already give a
definite date (2:6) He already knew the provisions needed (2:7) He already knew the
support needed (2:7). Before leaving, he asked the king for a “safe conduct pass”&
permission to cut timber 3. Initiates Action - He is willing to personally take the first
bold and difficult step 4. Personally Assesses the Situation - He evaluated the situation
by made a trip himself to verify the report. 5. Communicates Vision Well - People
have to “buy in” to the vision for them to reach it with equal passion as the visionary
leader. 6. Inspirational - He motivates everyone to passionately serve. He sets a good
example. The leader‟s life is always a key factor to success. 7. He delegates well -
Everyone had a clear assignment and knew what was expected of them. (Priests,
Levites, officials, women, among others) and the point is 8. Fights Opposition – He
had to protect his people and the work they were doing from the enemies. Again, if
you want to be the great leader, you‟ve got to have a big vision. People will follow
you when you‟re having the clear direction and picture of the whole trip or likewise,
there are nobody will follow you. If you say that you‟re weak of visioning, you‟ve got
to start developing and thinking. It won‟t wrong to do that, but it won‟t work if you
don‟t start from now. One of the important ways to do is to start by praying at first.
My desire and prayer for this month is to ask the Lord of hope to guide you and
inspire you along your way of your leadership development to become an Agent of
Change for Him. Richly bless you!

WEEKLY PRAYER AND MONTHLY PRAYER

We always had network meeting in each week and month to exchange, learn and
sharing each other‟s lessons so that all stakeholders are able to make the most of the
meeting. We also joint hands in prayer for our ministry on the ground and the people
who we are serving for, to be able to be touched through power of the Holy Spirit.
There is a saying “When we work, we work, but when we pray God works” We‟ve
seen the tremendous progresses of our leaders, families and our network partners were
touched and recognized by our work, just because of we‟re humbly seeking and
working hard to achieve to glorify His name. We also had opportunity to share our
problems and needs while we are working and serving in the Kingdom of God in
where we are based. We prayed for each other‟s problems and needs.
