Dear supporters in the Lord,
Under almost two years of pandemic days with different degrees of challenges, our FiCF staff in US, HK, and Cambodia all worked doubly hard with their best in sustaining our different ministry projects. Our ministries not only undeterred by the pandemic, on the contrary, they expanded in reaching out to serve more people, and to cover broader services. Besides thanking God for His protection and guidance, we also heartily appreciate the dedication of our staff.
We sincerely thank all of you for your faithful financial support in the past years. As a result, we are able to render monetary support and relief food packages to the Cambodia families with desperate needs. At the same time, we are able to pay the construction payments for our Pleroma Secondary School for Girls according to schedules. Besides, our HK FiCF was able to start their new Pleroma Family Ministry half a year ago, our US Women in Ministry Department expanded and strengthened their area Fellowships to more locations, and our US Spiritual Formation Department also expanded their network to much broader localities. Indeed, we thank God for His mercy and grace! We also heartily appreciate your generous donations in making all these expansions possible.
However, there appeared financial difficulties in terms of our operational needs in various ministries. As reflected in our August financial reports, we are experiencing an overall of 30% shortage in our operational expenditures. Besides continue to pray for our ministries, we sincerely hope that you consider helping us with donations to fulfill our financial needs in moving our ministries forward.
Laboring with you in Christ

For Pleroma School for Girls (PSG):
1. We are thankful that the school year has officially ended. We pray that our students and teachers will have a restful break.
2. We expect to be able to resume in-person classes for the secondary section in the new school year, while the primary section will probably stick to online classes. We pray that the Lord will grant us wisdom to make appropriate arrangements. （ Read more）

The Cambodia government has been restricting the movement of its people, starting with curfews, to the ban of inter-provincial commute, the lockdown of its capital Phnom Penh, the ban of movement across areas within Phnom Penh, people only allowed out with a permit, and the closing down of all local markets.
When lockdown first started, the government said NGOs were exempted from the lockdown. However, the government gradually tightened the lockdown but failed to mention if NGOs were still exempted. At the same time, the government continued to increase the relevant criminal liability and fine. There are even footages of the police whipping people who did not comply with the policy.（Read more）
International Women’s Day was established to commemorate the efforts devoted to the women’s rights movement, to show respect for women who contributed to society and to bring attention to the exploitation of women. The Fullness in Christ Fellowship shares the same mission.
I have joined the Pleroma Missions in Cambodia for over four years. I am mainly responsible for the services of the Pleroma Home for Girls (PHG) and the Pleroma Home for Women (PHW). When I see the kind of poverty and exploitation that our service targets experience, I have gradually placed my focus on our service targets and their predicament.. Read more

The unchangeable Lord is indeed our pilot especially when sailing in the vast stormy sea! The more difficult our path forward, the clearer and greater is God's grace and guidance! God's unchangeable mercy and grace shone through the historical unprecedented stormy mist of 2020. For us, 2020 is indeed a particularly blessed year beyond our words can describe:

Many women in Cambodia are suffering from domestic violence. The root cause varies, from poverty to lack of education to trauma. The traumatic events in their life result in attachment injuries that make them have destructed behavior such as unhealthy decisions, low self-esteem, emotional disturbance, and self-blame and/or blaming others. Trauma that these women have suffered from are often violent and usually pass on cyclically from generation to generation. (read more)

Thanksgiving: The past year has been difficult for all of us. But we are thankful that many of you are willing to walk with us out of love, and to support us financially, so that our ministry is not heavily affected. We can even do more in certain aspects. (read more)

Dear supporters of Pleroma Missions in Cambodia,
Due to the spread of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the lockdown and social distancing policies since mid-March this year, most organizations have reduced or simplified their ministries. However, due to the dire circumstances and urgent needs of our clients, we have increased our services instead, like the village visitations, food subsidies and financial assistance programs.

Since the founding of the Pleroma Missions in Cambodia (PMC), we thank God for His rich provision in terms of financial support and encouragements through visitors and short-term mission teams from different places in the United States, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
If you are interested in serving with us, please kindly complete one of the following three forms according to the purpose of your visit:
Over 20 years ago, we began to research on women’s contributions to the faith journey of God’s people in the Bible, as documented in “A Passion for Fullness” (1997) and in “Jesus’ Ancestress” (2012). As we celebrate FiCF’s 15th Anniversary (2016), we are launching another project “Wonder Women Who Made History in Chinese Missions” to document women’s contributions to the faith journey of God’s people in the Chinese church.
The first three women we have chosen to launch this project are: Gladys Aylward—the British single housemaid who travelled to China to preach the Gospel, and was used by God to also enforce the national law of unbinding young girls’ feet, and to save hundreds of orphans from life threats of Japanese invasion; Donaldina Cameron—the angry angel who gave up twice the potential for marriage to battle with forces of darkness, and delivered thousands of young girls from slave trade in San Francisco Chinatown; and Dora Yu—the Chinese doctor who broke her engagement to serve God whole-heartedly, and became a dynamic preacher, who touched the hearts of many to dedicate their lives to serve God, including the renown Watchman Nee, founder of Local Church that forbids woman to preach and lead in the church even to this day!

What was God’s original intent when He created family? How do we build up a healthy family in which man and woman genuinely love and submit to each other?
Many destructive forces have done much harm to the family, such as co-habitation, infidelity & adultery, divorce, homosexuality, pornography and domestic violence. How do we deal with these and the daily stress and tensions from work?
How do female leaders look like? Are they any different from male leaders? Women leadership is well accepted in the society at large but not in the church. What are the rationale behind such thinking ? What does the Bible really teach about women preaching, teaching and leading? Is ordination for men only? How do female pastors work alongside male colleagues?
Slavery may seem to be a thing of the past, in reality, sexual slavery has become a worse social problem in the 21st century. Millions of people have been victimized by human trafficking and 80% of the victims are women and under-age girls. Can you be a part of the solution? The pop culture has brought about a lot of confusion in the areas of sexual identity and ethics, how should Christians respond?
Fullness in Christ Fellowship (FiCF) provides a platform to discuss issues that are relevant to women in this day and age who want to live a worthwhile life. We also have support groups for woman ministers, and ministries in Cambodia to help the victims of human trafficking. Contact us.
Christian Womanhood -- an abundant life in Christ.
