The Hunt family thank everyone for their prayers and support over the visa issue. Thankfully the visas were granted and also the visas for other members of OMF and the Memorandum of Understanding is cleared for signings for the next 3 years.
Churches have been given permission to meet again. Services must be limited to 30 minutes and no children are allowed. The English speaking church will be opening again in various homes as the school building cannot be used.
Ali has been experiencing medical issues that are not resolving. Normally he would travel to Singapore or Thailand for advice but this is not possible due to restrictions. Please pray that good advice is possible in Cambodia. He is still working and has a meeting with the Ministry of Health this month to discuss guidelines.
The children have returned to school 5 days a week although larger schools have cohorts coming on different days.
