RADHA AND SAMEN MANICKAM – MISSIONS DOOR
My dear friends, families and partners in Christ’s ministry, we pray that you, your family and church are doing well. Since my last prayer letter I made a few trips in the US to help Cambodian churches in their area, I also traveled to speak in a few churches to share with them about the opportunities to serve The Lord among Cambodia people here and in Cambodia. Thank The Lord for g i v ing me the opportunity to work with many Cambodian churches through out North America and Cambodia. I am currently trying to set up training classes for the leaders here in the US and Cambodia. Please continue to pray for us.
We continue to work with the four areas of our ministries:
1. Networking by helping the Cambodian churches in US and
Cambodia to work together,
2. Training leaders in the Cambodian Christian community,
3. Help bring team (s) to build church in Cambodia
4. Provide help to the needy among the poor in Cambodia.
We continue to give partial support to six pastors in Cambodia. These pastors are working hard for the Lord, they nurture their congregation, train their leaders and travel around to start new churches. We would like to support more pastors and church planters by putting food on their table that allows them to freely serve the Lord without worry for what their family will eat at meal time. We would like to invite you to join us to help our brothers and sisters who serve as pastors and church planters in Cambodia.
We are still praying that The Lord will guide us in starting new classes for leadership training in Long Beach, California and one in Portland, Oregon area. We also pray that not too long we can start the same program in Cambodia. Please pray for students who will participate in the program, asking that God will give them wisdom and patience to study. Please pray for all these expansions of this training programs, pray too for all who involve in the program.
I will be in Cambodia at the end of March to conduct three training classes in two provinces. Those classes will be in Siem Reap and in Battambang Province. Please pray for travel mercy and that God would work through those who hear the needs in Cambodia and partner with us to reach Cambodia for Christ.
The CMC Center is serving to glorify God among the unbeliever in a few villages in that area. Since January we have a few teams of intern come to help teach English and other programs. We also sent those teams to help a couple of orphanages in Siem Reap City. We still have seven classes to help children who can’t afford to go to regular school plus two computer classes. We are giving scholarships to a couple students to attend college and provided a place for students to stay so that they would be near the school. We also have children sponsorship to help those poor children and orphans.

CMC continues to provide programs such as water wells to help the local community with clean water. This year we thank the Lord for providing 43 wells through two Churches. Most of the rural areas that we work with have no water in their summer time.
Pray that God will continue to raise up more leaders in Cambodia.
Pray that God will continue to give our CMC board and me wisdom to serve Him.
Pray that God will continue to bring in more partners to support this vital ministry.
