That's classified. We're not supposed to be in Cambodia but that's where I'm going.

Well, this is certainly bad bull.

Some missionaries that visited Providence Church last fall posted on their blog yesterday that Cambodia has banned all public evangelism: "Including door to door witnessing, passing of tracks, and open air broadcasts."

The state religion is Buddhism and apparently Cambodia doesn't want folks knocking it. Part of the prohibition makes me wonder if that which is said inside the church building can/will be censored:
Teachings of religions must respect other religions and avoid insulting and degrading each other, especially Buddhism, the state religion.
Is it insulting to say that Jesus is the only way and that Buddha is a false god? Something tells me that if not verboten already, it may not be far behind.

Pray for Bill & Jennifer Hale and others in Cambodia trying to further the cause of Christ.

They have an effective after school program and they're still allowed to be in country. I pray they will have courage to do the right thing and discernment to know what that is.

I'll be praying for the Hales as well as our brothers and sisters in Cambodia.
