Transform Asia Update - October 2017

"...A time to be silent and a time to speak..." Ecclesiastes 3:7 (NIV)

October is a time of really being able to enjoy autumn with the cooler temperatures and the beauty of the changing of colors. Our U.S. offices are blessed to be located in Colorado where we get to experience all four seasons and really celebrate God's creativity.

This month also has Setan doing a lot of traveling and sharing about his experience of being a missionary. First he will be going to Seattle to be a seminar speaker. Then he will be traveling to Ohio for one of our church sponsor's mission weekend. If you are in any of those places please do not hesitate to contact our offices to see if you can attend or just be able to meet up with Setan. I know he loves seeing all of our faithful friends when he attends events.

Many of you reading this are probably wondering "What about Cambodia?" We are truly blessed by what we are able to do there, and the doors that are open to us. We do not take this in vain. We also need to share that we are not a political group, so we will not talk about that. If you do hear anything, it's best to hold onto that news and pray about the situation. For our safety and the longevity of the ministry we ask that you do your best to not email political questions to us at this time. As we read in Romans 13:1, "Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God."
As Romans 8:28 says, "And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them." So we trust that the Lord is in all that is happening.

We know that He holds the keys to eternal life, and that is what we are building and sharing. We thank you for your understanding, and wish you the best during this autumn season.
