Rev. Mark Baldwin, PMU missionary to Cambodia, and Wiwin Sunarto were wed on October , in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The ceremony went extremely well. About were in attendance, family members, many from the villages where Mark has been working, and a large number of folks he has been able to make acquaintance with in Phnom Penh. Most had never been to a Christian wedding, and most had never heard the connection of the love of Christ for his church with the human institution of marriage. Mark and Wiwin desired that their wedding be an obvious picture of Christ’s love for His people and a true evangelistic outreach. Dr. Pine officiated and preached from Ephesians . It was a great testimony, and the Lord really moved in people’s hearts through it. Both village leaders came, and both publicly commented on the marvel of the love of God; neither is a Christian.
The Baldwins left for their honeymoon that evening, and Dr. Pine covered for Mark the next day out at the villages. There, around were in attendance between the two villages. It was incredible to see how God has grown those ministries since last November. Mark has a good crew of young people (all in their s) who assist him. They do most of the work of music, games, etc., while Mark does the teaching. Dr. Pine enjoyed watching them work. They are a great asset to Mark’s work, and now Wiwin will join in helping in those ministries as well. Please keep this couple in your prayers as they labor to spread the gospel in Cambodia.
