Second Visit to
5-16 February, 2004
BY BRO. SOPHEAK SOMALEE
We are very
glad to have Bro. Gan here in Cambodia from 5 to 16 February, 2004, for we
know that he has an apostolic ministry around the world. It was written that
God has given some apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and
Bro. Nan Khorn and two other brothers, we picked him
up at Phnom Penh Airport on 5 Feb. 2004. Then, after checking in to a hotel,
Bro. Gan ministered to us on some Bible prophecies, past and present, looking
into the books of Job and Matthew 24 to a small group of believers: brothers from Svay Rieng, Kampong Cham, Stung Treng province, and 4 of us in Phnom Penh. The
service took about 2 hours and a half at Bro. Nanís father-in-lawís Church.
On 6 Feb.
Bro. Gan preached at Bro. Nanís home in Trapaing Kor village, Phnom Penh,
the whole day.
were an additional 4 people: 3 from Kampot, and one from Siem Riep
province. The subjects are about signs, Israel, and ten virgins (Matt.
24 & 25).

On the morning of 7 Feb. we drove for about nearly two hours in
Bro. Nan's car to Trabokepuos village, Kampong Cham province where, in the
afternoon, Bro. Gan preached about the true
Creator and His creation to some Christians who were gathered together for a
celebration for the good harvest they had.
We left there at about 3:30 pm.
across Kampong Thom for Siem Riep province. We arrived there at night. There
were 6 of us altogether in the car. We stayed in Siem Reap for 3 nights.
From 8 to 9 Feb. Bro. Gan preached the Godhead,
Baptism, Original Sin and
the Logos at Siem Riep
"Wesleyan New Life Church". The pastor of the
church is Pastor Nith Ban Yen. Message books of Bro. William Branham and
Bro. Gan were distributed
out to the people
and wherever we ministered the Word.
On the 9 Feb., after lunch, we went to take in the sight of Angkor Wat and
planned to continue from there to Sisophon. But because of the
limited time before darkness fell, we decided to stay for the night.
Driving at night is a hazard because many sections of the two-lane road to
the border of Thailand
(where we had the intention to go) were either dirt road with uneven
surfaces or they were undergoing repair. Bro. Nan did not want to risk driving
On the 10th,
on the way to Thailand through Sisophon in the morning, Bro. Nan stopped by to
locate a pastor in Kralunh village. Finding him not at home, he drove off and
just then his car's left front tire
blew. A motor shop was just nearby and he drove to have it fixed. It
was then that the pastor, Bro. Sophanna, who was on his way home saw us. So we
called for a fellowship. A small assembly of Christians arrived at his small
wooden home which was also the place of regular worship.
There Bro. Gan preached
Matt. 7 about the faith in the believersí
hearts. He preached about 2 hours to 13 people. Then, we went on our way after
taking our lunch together with the pastor at a nearby eatery.
After filling up with "tax-free" diesel, we continued towards the border of
Thailand. We planned to enter Thailand, but our phone calls to a Thai pastor of
an Endtime Message Church received no response. At the Cambodian-Thai border (Poipet), I went across the border with a brother to Aranyaprathet
to try and locate him but we could not. After considering that a future trip to Thailand would be better,
Bro Gan and Bro. Nan decided to cancel the trip across the border. We turned
around and headed back to Sisophon.
Bro. Gan checked into a hotel, we decided to stay in the church of a pastor, Bro. Chhoy Chhin,
who was baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ by Bro. Nan.
On the 11th
morning, Bro. Gan shared Water Baptism and what the woman Christians should do,
wear and dress to Bro. Chhin and his assistant, Boravy. We took a rest in the
The following day we had a gathering of the people of the church. Bro. Gan
taught the same messages preached in Siem Riep.
Some have decided to be
baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, but some were uncertain and confused others
because of their arguments. Anyway, the pastor said there would be a baptism
coming up the next month for those who are willing.
On the 13th,
we left Sisophon across Battambang for Kampong Chhnang. On the way we visited a
pastor and Bro. Nan shared the message with him for about an hour and a half
before we continue on to Kampong Chhnang.
[The road toward Kampong Chhnang is extremely dusty and the brown earth could be
seen everywhere -- on the trees, houses and every living creatures.]
We arrived at the home and gathering place of a pastor, whose congregation were
all eager to hear the Word of God. Most of them were already baptized or
re-baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Gan preached on the parable of the Ten Virgins and also on the modesty and
apparel of the women.
a meal, offered to us by the family, we drove towards Phnom Penh, arriving there
in the night.
in, we had traveled nearly 800 kms. in just that one week.
On the 14th
Feb., we took Bro. Gan to view the "Killing Field". After leaving the
place, we went to Kandal province where we ministered to a young man and a pastor,
whom Bro. Nan had re-baptized. The pastor wanted to know more truth, but he was
not open to check the Scriptures, especially when It contradicted his "theology". We hope that God will give him the Spirit of wisdom and the
knowledge of Him.
Gan left Cambodia for home on the 16th February, 2004.
God bless you.

This time, during my stay in Phnom Penh, I was
able to take time off to take a look at the atrocity committed by Pol Pot during
his regime. I visited the Killing Field where mass burial took place and the
museum where the bones of the dead were housed. Just looking at the place and
the paintings and records of the events that took place sent a shiver through my
bones as I am reminded of the coming great tribulation that is soon coming upon
the world under the reign of the Antichrist.
