Kind, loving, giving, helpful - these are just a few of the words people have used to describe Chandra Bahadur. Nearly everyone who has traveled with one of our teams to Nepal remembers the bright smile of this gentle man, not to mention his amazing food. Each one of us has bragged on our "personal chef." But even more so, his example of Christian hospitality. The light of Jesus was evident in all he did. From spending hours preparing meals fit for a king for missionaries, to his willingness to serve, to his kind and humble demeanor - all of it pointed to Christ. Chandra won freedom from this life, and is now cheering on disciples from the side of Jesus. Please be in prayer for his family and friends, and be encouraged by the life he led for Jesus. If you'd like to a make a contribution to the family, or a water filter donation in his honor, you can do so on the give page here at www.ru4people.com.

Things are looking good in Cambodia as their lockdowns have lifted and life is getting back to normal after the COVID-19 pandemic. God is doing some amazing things!
Recently, the team in Cambodia has been able to launch 2 new churches and they are seeing salvations and the congregations are growing weekly. The team has also been able to travel to some villages outside of Phnom Penh and do eye camps to provide villagers with glasses to help them see and improve their daily lives both physically and spiritually by presenting them with the gospel of Jesus Christ after they receive their free eye care.
Children are still continuing to learn how to read and write at the school that we have begun in a remote village outside of the city. The children are loving getting an education and are excited for the opportunities that this will open up to them. They are also receiving the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout their schooling and we are so grateful to get to be a part of changing the lives of the children in Cambodia!
Now that day labors are back, the land for a new church building has begun to be cleared! Hallelujah! They were able to clear some of the land and put a fence up around a portion of the land. They still need to do some more clearing and leveling out of the land before they are able to begin construction on the church building.
Please keep the team in Cambodia in your prayers are they are looking for financing to help complete all that they need to do as well as the hands to help them finish the work on the land for the new church. We believe that God has big plans for this land, the church that is growing in the area, and the people that will be able to be reached here! To God be the Glory!
For years, Oma was subject to an abusive husband and poor living conditions. She was desperate for an escape, but was unsure of how to get out of her situation. Once she realized she was pregnant and her child was in danger, she ran from her home. She had no place to go and no resources to provide for her and her unborn son. She gave birth to her child in a homeless shelter, then found refuge with our team in our women's shelter in Kathmandu where she was presented with the gospel and became a believer in Jesus shortly after.
