HeartCry missionary, Chhinho S. reports the following concerning Elder Basil’s visit and fellowship in Cambodia:

“What an honored to be with a man of God who been faithfully serving the Lord for 52 years. His teaching, advice and life experience were so impactful to all of us. We asked him what is your secret; why you are able to keep your calling until now.”

Here are his secrets

  • Remember that you were a sinner. Christ saved you through his blood. Remember that your calling to preach is a high calling.
  • Remember that he is always with you no matter what situation you face. These are the three secrets that keep you going. Thanks Mr. Basil for your good advice.
