Wonderful Opportunities

Hi Friends and Family,

As always, it is my prayer that this update would serve as an encouragement and a lens through which you can see many wonderful opportunities and other perspectives.

April was a pretty packed month.

Being able to attend a missionary retreat is truly refreshing. I was able to be reminded that as a missionary we need to be strong and courageous because the truth is being in the field is not easy. We were encouraged also to run the race that the Lord had set before us and to focus on looking at the bigger picture. One of my huge takeaways that time was, learning how to plant oak trees rather than squashes.

April is also the month that Cambodians celebrate New Year. Thus, we had been able to have a quick and sweet escape from the city. We went to Kampot (a beautiful province) to have some fun activities such as kayaking, quad biking and hiking. It was a good timing to take some rest and recreation because I believe missionaries need it too.

It was mesmerizing to see a sea of lotuses. Took the chance to take a picture. If I am not mistaken lotus is one of the flowers that identifies Cambodia. You will be able to see lots of them in the country. Somehow I can’t stop but think of these lotuses as numbers of souls that could be won to Christ as we keep praying and supporting the mission here in Cambodia.

This is one of the highlights of this month’s update. I was invited to be a resource speaker about motivating students to study in the University of Cambodia. At first I was hesitant because technically I finished my degree last 2012 and it has been a long time, however the Lord showed me that this could be a great and wonderful opportunity to impart some wisdom from the word of God. I praise God for allowing me to be a conduit to these young people. It’s good to be able to plant and praying that in time the seed (word of God) that has been planted in their hearts will grow.

Here are my prayer requests;

  1. Wisdom
  2. Patience
  3. Vehicle

Should you know someone else who would be willing to support a missionary? Please let me know so I can connect to them (sherwinpido@gmail.com). It would mean a lot to me. Thank you!
