Please enjoy this update from Construction of Hope in Cambodia…
“Just over a year and a half ago, God rescued Li Hou and brought her into the refuge of the church. Shortly afterwards, Pastor Somnang and a team from the church visited Li Hou’s village and came in contact with many of her extended family members and friends. (See rescue-more-children for the full story on our website.)
Earlier this month, Pastor Somnang and a team from the church were visiting families in the nearby slum community behind the church and came across one of Li Hou’s cousins, Khjong, from Takeo Province who had recently been moved to Phnom Penh. Khjong’s mother had died from Tuberculosis, and Khjong was living outside on a mat without shelter with some extended relatives
Pastor Somnang and Om Sara talked with Khjong’s uncles and invited her to come and live in the church where she would join Li Hou and the other children and receive proper medical care, nutrition and education.
Please pray for the others in the slum community, as Pastor Somnang and others from the church go in the evenings to give food and share the Gospel. Please also continue to pray for the business models being implemented in the church – for the sewing business, the second-hand clothing store. It would be great for these business and other additional opportunities to be made available so that more and more people have the chance to earn a sustainable income.”

- Pastor Somnang’s brother, Sorovong, and his fiancé preparing for marriage in April and praying about serving long term in Bangkok.
