I am a huge fan of the Avengers. Iron Man, Captain America, The Hulk – they assemble from different places, different backgrounds, and different story lines to gather together in a time of need. This past February I got to work with the real Avengers – a team assembled from America, Egypt, India, Thailand, and Cambodia, who gathered together and changed the very atmosphere over Sisophon.
Sisophon is just a small dot on a map in the northwestern corner of Cambodia in a province called Banteay Meanchey. For the past year, I have been working with a team of thirteen young Cambodian Christians. We have been teaching a Bible-based English program called Water Drop to the teachers in the province, so they can start English programs in their own schools. While we have had some government support, much of our work here has felt like treading through water.
The team visited strategic points throughout the province. Each place we went held spiritual significance. Our main prayer in each location was to lift the veil of cloudy thinking, closed ears and closed eyes so the people would have free and complete access to seeing Jesus. (2 Corinthians 4:4)
