canja copyErnesto (Ernie) & Jonalyn Canja, are originally from the Philippines. Pastor Wade met Ernie while teaching there in the early 1990's. When the Khmer Rouge were overthrown in Cambodia, Ernie felt led of the Lord to go this broken and bleeding country and establish a school, an orphanage and a church. He lived under very harsh and dangerous conditions for several years. He and his family established and pastor the Good Shepherd’s Baptist Church, in Kampong Thom, Cambodia.

In addition to the church, they also founded a Bible school, have a daily radio broadcast for preaching the gospel, and consistently work with orphans and AIDS victims. Grace Fellowship has been supporting Ernie and the Good Shepherd Church for many years. The Canja’s have one son, J.

We are blessed to continue to be Partners in the Gospel with them!
