Dr. Bruce and Emma Behnken, missionaries to Asia
The Behnkens travel four times a year to Saigon, Vietnam; and once a year to Thailand and Singapore. They oversee a Filipina missionary (Ruby Gatchalian) in Saigon; teach in three CBI schools in three provinces of the Philippines with 120 students, and organize and train teaching teams of six Asian missionaries to go into Saigon. Most of the teachers are CBI graduates or leaders who are anointed to teach specific courses. To date, the total number of trained graduates in Vietnam is 1,050.
Bruce and Emma are part of the Pastoral Care team which serves the 24 Calvary missionaries in Asia. In addition, they conduct marriage seminars in these countries, and counsel/restore pastors and disciples who have fallen into sin.
Their prayer request:
- Wisdom in all our plans as we minister in Vietnam Thailand and Singapore.
- For our two children, Sharon and Brian to accomplish ten times as much as we have for the Lord.
- For our Vietnamese students to have protection in all their ministries.
- For maturity on the part of our graduates to obey God
- For the kingdom of God to continue in growth in Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines, and other nations in Asia where there are CBI’s: Nepal, Bhutan, Singapore and India.
