Story number 4 for 6 Mar 2002

(Cambodia)–Elsewhere, a devastating church fire in the heart of Kampuchea, Cambodia has served to bring attention to the plight of believers there. Bibles for the World’s Rochunga Pudaite says poverty makes it harder for the church to work, but the Christians are resourceful. He believes this is fueled by a sense of urgency. “The people in Cambodia are really spiritually bankrupt, and are searching for the truth that will sustain their lives. I was told that there was somewhere around 22-thousand Protestant Christians in the whole country of Cambodia.” Pudaite says church leaders are desperate for help, although not in the way you might think. “I think it’s the openness that is overwhelming the brethren, rather than persecution. We need the power of the Holy Spirit to really work in the land; that new believers will be on fire for him constantly, and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ.” Bibles for the World is also trying to get funding to provide more Scriptures to this thirsty land.
