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

Meet David | Cambodia

Countries- map

Your prayerful support helps take the hope of the gospel to children in need. Meet one of those children. David is the son of migrant construction workers from Myanmar. He has been a part of Pastor Vino’s church and learning center for the past year. In addition to growing physically and mentally through the education and nutrition initiatives at the church, David is quickly developing into a strong leader. Slow to speak but quick to pray, David leads by example through exhibiting gentleness and kindness with the other children. He loves times of worship in the church and leads his family in worship each night at their camp on the construction site. Recently, David shared a testimony of answered prayer. After missing the daily truck that came to pick up him and other children from their camp at the construction site, David decided to walk the 4 kilometers (approximately 2.5 miles) to … Continue reading

Next Generation Leaders | Cambodia Update

Arriving in Takeo from Phnom Penh

Enjoy this update from our Cambodia team– In our learning center in Bangpli, Thailand, one of the main goals is developing young leaders that have a heart for reaching their own community. The kids are given responsibilities that not only affect the other children at the learning center–but their families and other people in need. Chris, age 13, is responsible for helping Joel, the 3-year old son of a Pakistani Pastor who has been jailed, assimilate into the activities in the church, including helping him with basic skills such as eating and drinking on his own. David (left), one of the assistant leaders, has a heart for evangelism and prayer and loves to pray for God’s blessing over anyone he comes in contact with, especially during outreach ministry. David’s mother, Kai, recently gave birth and is part of a new ministry outreach through Pastor Vino that helps ensure pregnant women in … Continue reading

Come See What God Is Doing! | Cambodia Update

somnang baptizing gaow

Enjoy this update from our Cambodia team– We praise God for the provision of a new truck for the project in Bangpli, Thailand! The truck was sold for only 55,000 baht (around $1500) by a Christian Thai man who felt led to help the church. We rejoice over the baptism of 7 children in Phnom Penh, Cambodia! Having been discipled in the church for many months now, Pastor Somnang waited to baptize the children until they were all sure of their decision to follow Christ and were able to show evidence of growth in the knowledge of the Lord. The vision of these children becoming leaders of their generation is coming to fruition as they are not only each growing individually and inside their familiar community in the church but are also each actively engaged in the ministry with Pastor Somnang in reaching out to the many children living in the … Continue reading

“… But Now I Have No Fear”

2015-10-21

Enjoy this update from our friends in Cambodia … In July 2013, Construction of Hope had just begun sponsoring the first child, Nam Aoy, to live under the care of Pastor Somnang and the church. It was also during this summer that we led a mission team of students from our international school in Bangkok to lead a Bible school for children in the local slum community and to help with some much-needed renovations to the church in Phnom Penh. One afternoon as we were cleaning up building supplies to make room for the afternoon’s activities with the children, Nam Aoy came back from playing with the children in the local community with a little girl, who we came to know as Li Hou, trailing behind her. Li Hou’s face was badly bruised, hair matted against her face, and looked at us with pleading but yet cautious eyes. Nam Aoy … Continue reading
