June 2022 Update

June has been a busy month of school for the whole Martin family. Wesley, Briana, and Lucas were excited to take a break for a week to attend VBS at the local international church. While the children are still in school, they have enjoyed the opportunities for more special summer activities with other kids such as music and soccer. Joe, Wes, and Lucas also were able to attend a weekend father-son camp in Kep in June. Veronica and Bria also had a mother-daughter weekend getaway in Phnom Penh. Joe and Veronica have continued teaching and are looking forward to wrapping up the school year at PPBS in July.

Attending VBS in June was a highlight of the summer for Wesley, Briana, and Lucas

Thanks to generous donors, Able to Teach has been providing support to students in need of financial aid in order to study to prepare for future ministry. Here is one of the students that your donations to Able to Teach is helping to study at PPBS.

Meet Om Sros, a first year student at Phnom Penh Bible School

Sros came to PPBS from Kampong Cham province (in central Cambodia). Sros heard the gospel through the Sunday School and youth ministry of his local church. He trusted Christ as Savior December 22, 2012 and was baptized in 2017. Sros chose to study at Phnom Penh Bible School because PPBS is an interdenominational school and a Bible School that trains Christian ministers well to serve the Lord. He hopes that during his time at PPBS he will be able to learn more about the Word of God, will grow in his faith, and be able to interpret the Word of God correctly, and become more consistent in serving others. Sros also hopes to learn to become more like Christ from his studies at Phnom Penh Bible School. 

Please pray for Sros and other students at PPBS as they study the Bible, grow in their faith, and serve the church in Cambodia

Sros ministering to children who live by one of the dumps outside of Phnom Penh in June. All the students at PPBS are actively involved in local church ministry while studying.
