Srey Lin is a 17-year-old student from the Cambodian village of Phum Krus, a small village in which the Lutheran Church in Cambodia has a base. She has a high school scholarship with the church.
When Srey Lin started coming to church for English classes and attending services, she wanted to know more about God. So, she prayed. What better place to start than prayer! She prayed for her parents, as there was often violence in her home between her mother and father – and she saw a miracle. Her parents began to have a better relationship. Having come from a Buddhist family, she had never prayed before. She says, ‘I didn’t have anything inside to know I was able to pray’.
God’s grace draws us closer. Recently, in the small Lutheran village church, Srey Lin was baptised, together with her mother.
‘I realised I had a sinful nature and nothing I could do would help me to be saved. Before I was stubborn, not wanting to obey my parents’ advice, and I would often fight with them. But now the words of God teach me how to obey my parents.’
Srey Lin is studying computing with the IT teacher at Phum Krus. She has plans to do further computing studies in Phnom Penh. She continues to pray.
Many of our partner churches are working in new territory for the kingdom of God, therefore, spiritual attack is their everyday reality. We invite you to pray for them – as a congregation, school, family, couple or individual. For regular prayer point updates, go to www.lca.org.au/international-mission/act-now/pray/
