               DORMITORY FOR UNIVERSITY STUDE NTS

A. The Crossroads Boyz.                                    There will be an intake of 3-5 new
   The number for male student at the                      students from time to time. They
   dormitory has increased from 13 in                      will be required to attend bible
   May 2002 to 21 at present. As                           lessons from Genesis to Revelation
   university students in Phnom Penh,                      during their probation period of 2
   Cambodia, would not ‘be available for                   months. The Crossroads used this
   any Christian activity during the daytime’,             opportunity        to        rectify
   nor available at night due to security                  misconceptions on Christianity in
   reason, the Crossroads dormitory                        Cambodia and more important, to
   has been instrumental in reaching                       present the love and grace of God
   out to university students. With the                    through His work of redemption
   dormitory,       ministry       at     the              that they may come to know Him
   Crossroads is ‘possible by night’.                      personally. Many have come and
                                                           rooted in Christ through this
                                                           process.

                                  ‘Life-influence-life’
 We proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone
                              perfet in Christ. [Colossians .1:28].




    In the evening, students will worship daily. Students will learn new praises and hymns
    on Monday night. This is essential as Christian culture is new to many of them. On
    Tuesday and Wednesday nights, they will study the ‘Life of Christ’ chronologically to
    witness




                                                 3
                                                 Daily evening worship at the Crossroads.

   Christ’s personal experience in servant leadership and as well as in the midst of being
   attacked, hatred and rejection. We PRAY that through the life example that the Lord
   has set for us, students may be convicted with the truth and be transformed
   gradually.
   On Thursday night, students gather to develop and nurture leadership characteristics
   and qualities through activities like group discussion, debate and voicing opinion on
   current issues, listening, giving speech, planning, etc. Every Friday we gather to pray
   for the world pertaining to God’s work of redemption.

B. New Addition … The Girls’ Dormitory.
   By the grace of God, we have successfully established the first ever girl dormitory in
   Cambodia after a 3 years wait due to cultural appropriateness. In July 2002, we have
   taken in 5 girl students[one Christian] in a premise about 2 minutes walk form the
   Crossroads. Since then, 3 girls have come to accept Christ as their personal savior.
   Please PRAY on the following:-
        A lady ‘discipler’ to live amongst these students to teach and impart them
           biblical values in their lives.
        The students will embrace a discipleship life throughout their walk with the
           Lord; that they may be teachable and receptive to the word of God.
        Wisdom from the Lord as the Crossroads seek to teach biblical truth in
           Cambodian society where ‘women rule men’.
        The Girls’ dormitory will bring more opportunity in education to young girls
           in the provincial areas, which are still very conservative on rights of women
           towards education, but more important, to raise more Christian women who
           are dedicated to the Lord.

                         IMPACTING PHNOM PENH

A. Reaching out to the lost.
   The Crossroads students continue to reach out to their peers through relationship
   building. In such a poverty stricken and animistic society, survival factor has caused
   many to ignore the calling of salvation, thus driving Christian to subject of
   persecution, isolation and rejection. Still, by the grace of God, the Crossroads
   persevere to remain faithful to the great commission as we constantly plan to reach




          Evangelism . . . . We are building/expanding the church outside a ‘church’.
   out to others. In August 2002, we had a picnic cum evangelistic outreach to develop
   and foster deeper relationship with other students. Though not many had responded,
   we PRAY that the Lord will continue to draw people to the living water and the
   bread of live.


B. University Christian Students Movement.
   On 13th October 2002, we estimate about 200 Christian Students from all universities
   will gather for the first ever city wide worship. We believe that through the unity of
   the Cross, there is hope in Cambodia. About March 2002, CNEC[Cambodia
   Nationals’ Evangelism Commission] has urged several mission organizations serving
   in Cambodia to work in a group/partnership to mobilize for an university Christian
   students movement . Pursuant to several meetings, a purpose statement has been
   agreed upon that we may work as a body of Christ. We believe that the Lord is
   working to mobilize more university Christian students be a man of God to rebuild
   Cambodia, just as the Lord had used Ezra to rebuild Jerusalem after the exile. As
   these students will form future leadership of this nation, we PRAY on the following:-




                                            5
        Students will be envisioned to find solution of this suffering country through
         the message of the Cross.
        Students will be equipped to witness in this city to further His work to bring
         forth a mighty harvest.
        All Christian will raise up a strong and triumphant church in the one God, one
         body and one Spirit for the glory of His name.


CONCLUSION: CNEC will celebrate its 2nd anniversary on 1st October 2002. Through
these early stages, we have witnessed the Lord laying down a firm foundation for future
CNEC ministry in Cambodia. CNEC has discipled a group of young men who are
capable of being its leadership. With the Lord’s blessing, they have great potential to be
future local leaders of Cambodia.
As it is now, beside biblical teaching and pasturing of the church, the Crossroads is
administered by students themselves. In less than a year, the first batch of university
students will graduate in which some of them will serve with CNEC to reach out to this
suffering nation, while other will continue to be salt and light in the society wherever
they are. These potential leaders have also been embedded in sound doctrine of God and
are able to reach out to non-believers and to disciple and nurture young believers to
know God. We believe the Lord will use them mightily in the near future as a vehicle to
save the lost.


Yours in Christ,
David Ooi.
