Little Li Hou’s Big Decision | Cambodia & Thailand Update

Cambodia-email-header

Because of your support and prayer, God is doing exciting things at Lifesong Cambodia & Thailand. Take a look– 14-year-old Chris became sponsored in February of this year during our Valentine’s campaign to #LoveOne. He is a wonderful young man who loves God and has prayed faithfully for his grandmother to accept Jesus into her life. The good news?–God was pleased to answer his request and now, not only does Chris’s grandmother know Jesus, but so does his uncle and several other members of his family.   Because of some recently donated equipment and new partnerships, Lifesong Cambodia and Thailand will soon begin a new soccer program for children in Bangpli! Not only will this provide a great time of play for kids, but–Lord-willing–it will create many additional opportunities to give the Gospel and to provide discipleship.   Recently, we were excited to rejoice in many recent baptisms, including Li Hou, a precious … Continue reading

A Powerful Story of Redemption for a Little Girl | Cambodia Update

Cambodia-email-header

Four-year-old Mary was not always named “Mary.”  Her given name literally meant “devil” when she and her brother were found by Lifesong staff in Cambodia six months ago, a telling description of the struggle within Mary’s family. But no child escapes God’s care, and our Heavenly Father had big plans to rescue Mary from the grasp of the Enemy and place her safely in the love and care of people who understand their own redemption as sons and daughters of God. Sponsors like you quickly stepped forward to help provide Mary with healthy meals, proper clothing, and a safe place in which to grow, learn, and play. And in response to this Gospel love and provision, Mary transformed from a quiet, sad child to a bright and lively little girl. Many children in the sponsorship program change–physically, emotionally, and spiritually–in response to the love of Christ. In Mary’s case, even her name changed. She … Continue reading

Battle of the Chefs: Cambodia Update and Opportunity

Cambodia-email-header

God continues to do big things for the children of Cambodia and Thailand, and we are blessed to have a front row seat to His work.  Specifically, 40 Cambodian and Burmese children now gather daily at the Construction of Hope Project in Bangpli, Thailand, to receive education, skills training, and discipleship. With the recent start-up of several new and exciting programs, this summer has produced a vibrant display of their unique talents and abilities. The recently-developed cooking class, for example, has not only produced many tasty treats, but it has also revealed the culinary and leadership potential in Chris, Amy, and Joseph. . As the oldest students in the program, these three young people each lead a team of mini-chefs that go head-to-head each week to see who can produce the most delicious dish. Not only does this encourage team spirit and fun competition amongst peers, but it builds relationships … Continue reading

Meet Children with Radical Courage to Hope | Cambodia Update

Countries- map

Every morning in Bangpli, the children gather to share testimonies of how God is working in their lives. How humbling it is to hear from children who have suffered deep hurts or horrific losses, yet they joyfully share personal examples of the goodness of God in their circumstances. These kids have already learned to hold their lives and possessions with open hands–accepting as from God every good and perfect gift. David, whose story we have been privileged to share in the past, is often eager to contribute. Originally from Myanmar, he began working on a fishing boat when he was just 7 years old. Now 11, he has been living for the past couple of years on various construction sites in Thailand. After being found by Pastor Vino during an outreach to his construction site a year ago, David has become a leader among the other children, and is part of the student evangelism team. These children go out regularly … Continue reading

What Do Valentine’s Day and Christmas Have in Common? | Cambodia Update

Countries- map

Holidays allow us to celebrate, but also to redeem opportunities for sharing God’s love and making new connections. In countries like Cambodia where many people do not yet know about Christmas, believers take the opportunity to celebrate Jesus’ birth long into the new year. In Bangpli, Thailand, for instance, Pastor Vino and his church people are still taking full advantage of using gift boxes filled with school supplies, hygiene products, and tiny toys to develop new connections with children and families in need. For Pastor Vino, the Christmas holiday is a tool to share the love of Jesus with those who still need it. HELP A CHILD IN NEED The good news? Children of migrant workers from previously unreached construction sites are now joining the learning center at the church, and whole families are coming to evening worship services to hear more about the love of Christ that has captured the heart of Pastor … Continue reading

Love One: A Month Long Challenge to Love Orphans

Love-One

February is the month for love. And since love is action, we have an idea. (We need YOUR help!) With the number of orphans worldwide totaling in the millions, it’s hard to imagine that any one person could make a dent in the need. But here’s the truth: If each of us committed to love one child in need, the impact would be enormous. “Do for one what you wish you could do for everyone.” –Andy Stanley The good news? It’s easier to change a life than you might think. For instance, every child sponsored through Lifesong receives food, clothing, medical care, and shelter. Additionally, each child is known and loved by teachers and mentors who provide strong Christian training and a quality education to break the cycle of poverty while being cared for in a safe and nurturing environment. For an orphan overseas, this commitment can be the difference between life and death, bondage or … Continue reading
