Dear Church Everyday in Christ
Greetings in our Lord’s name.
Thanks always for your prayer and support. I have received your monthly support of $ 3,000 in April.
In January, Dr Chan of Singapore and Dr Morris of Australia came and taught KBS students, Some mission teams came and visited village churches and even to Thmorbang jungle area.. We celebrated Christmas at Phnompenh prison and baptized some inmates.. We sold out old church property of Sraeambal because the property and building is small, and bought new land nearby. New land is much bigger, and Seo-il church of Korea is supporting for new church building. For the time being they will worship at old church but from August they will do at new building. We also sold the land of Botsemoan church because brother Issachar’s family moved out to another place and property is too small, and noisy due to roadside. We bought new, bigger land and pray to build in proper time.
In February, some local pastors came from other provinces for my 60th birthday, so we had meals together with KBS students. A Korean mission team came and visited local churches and Kompot Prison, and gave gifts.
In March, HaneulNuRim church of Korea came and had inauguration service of Kdat Amazing Grace church in Kompot. They donated offering for church property and church building parsonage, and making fence. This church was built for particular purpose of Prison ministry of Kompot. So it is located near Kompot Prison. Brother Kimsan, KBS graduate, is serving there, pastoring and teaching at Prison. The team also visited Prison and baptized almost 40 inmates. DLTP teaching team of Living Praise church of Singapore came for teaching KBS. They also are supporting dormitory expenses for 12 secondary and high school students, because they are from Ottres poor village. They are staying at our KBS dormitory and eating together.
In April. KBS and KCS had three-weeks school holiday on occasion of Khmer new Year. Mrs hahn and myself visited Korea. Excellency and pastor Ung Molyvann visited with us and gave his testimony to four churches.
1. Tax Department gave us tax amount of $45,000 up to year 2017, paying tax for KBS property (5 hectares) including penalty. We did not pay it after buying the land in 2000 because they never gave tax invoice and not new land title. We submitted appeal letter, but they said it is not acceptable. Anyway we are trying to reduce the amount. I have fund of $35,000 which Dr Kenneth of Glory church gave few years ago. he agreed it can be used for paying property tax. But we still pray for the balance.
2. Internal Ministry urge Mrs Hahn to start Prison ministry in Kohkong Province, and ask to build classroom inside Prison. She is praying for the fund. Prison ministry has much fruits until now at three provinces ( Phnompenh, Kompongcham, Kompot). Now many other NGOs gave up their Prison ministry due to political reasons, but Mrs Hahn of CEAI NGO is going well.
3. Now KBS students reduced to 20, but KCS increased to 170. The nearby of KBS is much developed for residential area. We pray it also can start Christian School of Primary, Secondary, High School. The ownership of the KBS land should be solid for further ministry. We also pray the land title name be changed from local persons to KBS (or KBS representative) after paying transaction tax (4% of land value).
Your prayer will be thankful
May God bless you,
Moses and Grace Hahn
