Spiritual oppression is real in Cambodia and Thailand. Both countries have significant levels of poverty and oppression. Materialism is the new religion, and drugs are destroying whole communities. Yet, despite the obstacles, God is advancing His mission. The church is maturing and growing.

Recently, I completed theological training about justice and compassion for 50 leaders in these two countries. I was so impressed. Some, despite their lack of formal education, have Spirit-fueled insights and wisdom. They are planting churches, serving with compassion, and having an impact. Some are from oppressed tribal groups. They shared their burdens for people who can’t speak the national language, are excluded, and are in great need. Everyone expressed their concerns for the youth lost in technology and drugs.

Together, we discussed the holistic nature of the mission of God. These amazing leaders not only get it; they live it daily in powerful and sacrificial ways. They are not just planting churches; they are planting missions of hope. They evangelize for personal salvation but also for advancing God’s kingdom into villages, tribes, systems and cultures. They serve to meet real needs but understand real needs are not just physical, but spiritual.

They shared their dreams, and we had an extended prayer time at the end of the teaching. They laid their hands on sheets of paper detailing their obstacles, needs and dreams. Their prayers were long and loud for God to do more than can be asked or imagined according to His power at work in us (Ephesians 3:20). Amen! God, please hear the prayers.
