When blogging first became popular a few years ago, I signed up at blogspot.com and began a blog. It survived a total of only one entry. With that in mind, I avoiding the realm of blogging because I knew that I would not be disciplined enough to consistently update the blog with fresh and interesting posts.
As those of you who follow this blog have been quick to point out, I have proven this fear to be well founded.
My apologies for the delay in posting. We have been extremely busy here in Siem Reap and the surrounding area due to the flooding caused by Typhoon Ketsana, the holiday and festival season here in Cambodia, and the daily educational efforts which go on in our busy household.
The orphanage at Stoung is doing well. We have increased the number of children by 4 to a new total of 18 students. The consequent increase in expenses has raised the need for additional donations to keep the work going. I would encourage each of you to visit the revised and expanded PRM website http://purereligionministries.com to view the current budget information. Additionally, we hope to purchase land before the end of 2009 on which to build permanent facilities for the PRM Orphanage. Pray for the planning and fruition of these efforts. If all goes as planned, it will make for a very busy year in 2010.
Due to the increased interest here in Siem Reap, we have made the decision to begin hosting a Sunday morning worship service in our home. We will host our first meeting tomorrow morning, November 1, 2009. Please pray that as the weeks go by more people from our neighborhood will manifest an interest in our worship and teaching ministry. We are looking forward to having our friends Sokhom and Mi along with their children and extended family with us tomorrow.
We had hoped to have Brother Jeyakumar Anugraham and his wife Alice with us, but unfortunately, Jeya suffered a heart attack on Thursday evening and had to be transported to Bangkok for some related medical procedures. Please continue in prayer for him as he recuperates and receives ongoing treatment.
I do want to thank you all again for your continued interest in the goings on of Weyel World, and will attempt greater dilligence in reporting to you through this medium.
