Scott and Andrea Sward arrived in Cambodia in September 2009. After spending their first two years in language learning, and their third year in additional training and development, they are now living and working in the province of Pursat. Pursat is Cambodia’s fourth largest province, and is located in the western middle of the country. While there are few Christians in Cambodia (less than 2%), there are even fewer in Pursat (less than 1%). Currently the Swards are working in Pursat with their teammates, Fede and Diane Hernandez, to plant a network of small house churches in and around their town. This includes teaching evangelistic Bible studies, discipling new believers, and investing in young Cambodian Christian leaders. Please pray with them for adult Cambodian leaders to emerge and for the Bible studies to develop into self-sustaining and self-multiplying churches.
In addition to the work in Pursat, the Swards and Hernandez work to provide support, visitation, training and encouragement to existing Friends churches in other parts of Cambodia.
Please join the team in prayer for decisive victory of Christ to be evident in new believer’s lives, for the growth of Cambodian Christians and the Cambodian church, and for their own health and safety as they serve in places with limited access to medical care.
