A little over a year ago, I had the privilege of meeting Brother Chad Phillips and his wife, Linda, at a missions conference at Zion Hill Baptist Church of Greenville, South Carolina. I was impressed with my brother from the outset. He is a missionary sent out of Victory Baptist Church, Loganville, Georgia where Derik Lawrence is the fine pastor. The Phillips family is serving with Macedonia World Baptist Missions going to the country of Cambodia!
- Over 95% Therevada Buddhist
- One of the top countries for child prostitution
- One of the only countries in Southeast Asia (along with Thailand) which has complete religious freedom
- Over ten thousand villages in Cambodia, many which have not been reached with the Gospel
Without a doubt, this is the best mission video I have ever seen! I think you will agree! A MUST SEE!
A Word From Brother Chad:
“Psalm 74:20Psalm 74:20
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV
20 Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.
WP-Bible plugin perfectly describes Cambodia: ‘Have respect unto the covenant; for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.’ If there were ever a country that was characterized by spiritual darkness, it would be Cambodia. Why? Well, for starts, the pure Gospel of Christ did not penetrate Cambodia’s borders until 1923. From the time the Gospel made it into Cambodia until the Khmer Rouge took over the country 52 years later, very few Cambodians turned to Christ. Under the Khmer Rouge rule, approximately 3 million people were slaughtered in what is known as the Killing Fields. Of the few thousand Christians in the country at that time, only a few hundred survived.
After another decade of civil war throughout the 1980’s, Cambodia finally opened its doors to foreign missionaries in 1994- the first time in twenty years that foreign missionaries were allowed into the country. So, the Gospel made it to Cambodia in 1923; but what little presence of the Gospel was almost completely destroyed during the Killing Fields.God has called our family to plant churches in this spiritually dark place. Please pray for us as we carry the light of the glorious Gospel of Christ to the Cambodian people.”
Recommendation Letter Links:
Without a doubt in my mind, you will be enriched by the Phillip’s family. I highly recommend any Independent Baptist Pastor to call this brother and set up a meeting! God will use him in your church!
