We are so thankful to have had the blessing of a visit from Brother Lyle Tomlinson of Cincinnati Primitive Baptist Church. Brother Lyle was in the region (Southeast Asia) conducting business meetings and was kind enough to schedule a few days for us. With some advance notice we were able to provide a list of needs and even schedule some items to be delivered to the Tomlinson’s for Lyle to bring with him when he came. These items will be a great help to us in our continued efforts at gluten free cooking as well as in ministering to the saints here.

Most of all, we are thankful for Brother Lyle’s interest in our effort here and desire to be a part of what we are attempting to do.

During his time with us, Brother Lyle was able to witness a youth soccer game, visit the local market and grocery stores, visit the orphanage for worship on Sunday morning and the facility at Varin on Monday morning. We also were blessed to be a part of the 3rd anniversary celebration of the Christian Fellowship of Siem Reap where we were able to introduce Brother Lyle to some of our new friends among the Christian community here in our town.

We are encouraged whenever our friends and loved ones are able to come and visit us here in Cambodia and hope that many more will be able to experience first hand the blessing of serving the needs of Christ’s people in this land as well as to witness the specific efforts that we are engaged in.

We want to express our deep thanks and appreciation to Brother Lyle and Sister Leanna Tomlinson as well as Elders Bradley, Huffman and all of the members of Cincinnati Church for their encouragment and prayerful support for our family in this time of our lives.

In Christ,

Joseph and Rachel Weyel
