Last week we had a visit from a YWAM team who joined us for 3 days. Their team is based in Australia but was made up of 12 people from Germany, U.S.A., UK and Australia and they offered to help us and serve our needs in whatever way we needed.
Their first morning here was spent getting to know the staff and setting up teams to cater to the different areas they were helping out in. We shared lunch with them and they also prayed over the Precious Women team and for the women we reach out to. The prayer time was a great time of being in the presence of the Holy Spirit and left everyone feeling encouraged and refreshed.
After lunch the team split into their groups and that afternoon and the following day was spent teaching English to some of the Khmer staff, doing some training, working on media projects and preparing for the women’s fellowship outreach on Friday.
The volunteers worked with the Precious Women team to put together a program for the monthly fellowship with women from the KBB’s. The day was a great success with over 30 women and a few men to the party and a range of activities, including a fashion show, a skit demonstrating the love of God for us, testimonies, a Western/Khmer cook off and painting.
Their 3 day visit ended with sharing our responses to the party and some more prayer time where they prayed over us and encouraged Lida in the work she is doing and in her role as director of Precious Women.
The YWAM team members were all full of energy and their creative ideas, servant hearts and hard work were an incredible blessing, not just to us but to the women we are reaching out to.
