Rodney Ruppell is the pastor of New Hope Baptist Church in the capital city of Phnom Penh, Cambodia. What a thrill it was to see these dear missionaries and their children as they have labored in the country of Cambodia for over fifteen years. Being that I speak the Khmer language, I was definitely embarrassed that these missionaries speak and write my native language better than me.
Rodney is doing a great job. As of late, his efforts are to assist the Christian community in general as persecution has risen in Phnom Penh. There are now tighter regulations regarding conversion of the nationals as well as handing out gospel literature. Rodney is working aggressively to help those in authority while bridging the communication barriers for many of the missionaries in the country.
