The flooding in Cambodia this year caused a lot of damage. Crops were washed out, homes, buildings and roads were damaged, and things were very chaotic. But God works in all things!
We have called it a flood of mercy for many reasons. First and foremost, because the Good News of Jesus has spread even more as a result of the flood. Thanks to your support, our preaching students, doctors, and other servants were able to show God’s love to the people with bags of rice to eat, rice stems to plant, and even the occasional water rescue. Beyond this, God is even using the fish that were lost from CCM Center to spread the name of Jesus.
You see, when the dam burst, our fish farm washed out and we lost 50-60 thousand fish! But then people downstream saw the fish (blue catfish and tilapia that are unique to the area) and wondered where the fish came from. Those in the know told the people they were from Jesus Place. Jesus Fish from Jesus Place from the Jesus People.
Jesus used a fish to pay the tax, two fish to feed thousands, and tons of fish from the other side of the boat to show the disciples who he was. Perhaps God isn’t done using fish to spread the gospel!
